Welcome to Wikidata, Jsamwrites!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Best regards!

Salut,

Je vois que tu t'es lancé dans la création de lexème pour la Climate week! Merci beaucoup <3

Je te laisse faire les créations et, pour information, je repasse derrière à ajouter des informations (le genre grammatical et les formes au pluriel par exemple).

Tu pourrais peut-être utiliser l'outil Lexeme forms pour te faciliter le travail ;)

Hello, I suppose you add items to wrong senses...

Good afternoon! I can see that you have been supporting my proposal https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Property_proposal/Lexemes?veaction=editsource&section=8#Språkrådets_termwiki . By chance I discovered that this property already exists as Language Council of Norways termwiki ID (P5445): Identifier for a term in the Norwegian language, as given by an entry in the Language Council of Norways termwiki. This is a terminology database for academic disciplines. The terms are usually given as Bokmål, Nynorsk, and English variants., so there fore I have of course requested this proporty proposal to be halted. But anyway, thanks for your kind support. Breg

Adding of category combines topics (P971)

Hi, I am still in the process of adding the topics. The goal is to add the two (or more topics) related to categories. Though unrelated, I have also seen edits by User:KrBot, adding topics. E.g., Q8678418, the first topic was added by me followed by the second topic by User:KrBot.

Mahir256 (talkcontribs)

Is there any specific reason why you're adding P971 to items which already have P301 or P4224?

Jsamwrites (talkcontribs)

My primary focus is on the categories which do not have P301 and/or P971. I will now add P4224. Thanks for pointing it.

Mahir256 (talkcontribs)

I don't think you answered my question. Aren't P971 and P301 redundant (in other words, can't the desired topic combination be inferred from intersections of properties on the item which is the object of the P301 statement, rather than using P971 statements on an item with P301)?

Jsamwrites (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the clarification since both P971 and P301 are equally important (along with P4224). Ideally, we can infer from P301. But currently there is no way to infer the topics from the items that are used with P301 or to find the composition topics. Secondly, there are several problems with the values used with P301. For example:

etc. are, incomplete to describe the purpose of these categories. The above are only ome examples. The three properties P971, P301 and P4224 can be used together not only to understand the categories but also to verify/infer.

(I'm not used to property handling, and my two questions may reflect ignorance. I'm also only used to edit source files, and find no "preview" button here, which may lead to stupid linkage mistakes. Please excuse this!)

Question 1: Was [https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q85627983&diff=1307606903&oldid=1307598921 this edit] (adding "year 1919" to the P971 of Q85627983, Category:Nematodes described in 1911) simply a mistake?

Question 2: Is the P971 of Q28379035 (Category:Birds described in 1758) a reasonable model for this property for taxon description category items? (As you can see there and in its history, an uninlogged user combined Q5113 (bird), Q32945461 (taxon treatment), and Q7639 (the year 1758) by means of P971.)

Jsamwrites (talkcontribs)

@JoergenB, Thank you for your feedback. Given below are my respones

question 1: thanks for pointing the error. It is now corrected. I need to look at it in detail to find the reason of the error. question 2: In my opinion, it is correct unless we have items like "description of birds" or "taxon treatment of birds", which if present can be used with Q7639. There may be other possible combinations depending on the presence of already present items.

Commons - Media Sarch, new feedback round

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Greetings,

I'm following up on a message from earlier in the year about the prototype development for Special:MediaSearch. Based on community feedback, the Structured Data team has developed some new features for Special:MediaSearch and are seeking another round of comments and discussions about the tool. Commons:Structured_data/Media_search is updated with details about the new features plus some other development information, and feedback is welcome on Commons talk:Structured_data/Media_search. Media Search works in any language, so the team would especially appreciate input around support for languages other than English. I look forward to reading about what you think. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 01:11, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

Greetings,

The Structured Data team is working on an alternative, image-focused prototype for media search on Commons. The prototype uses categories, structured data as well as wikitext from Commons, and Wikidata to find its results. The development team would like your feedback on the prototype, as they are looking to work to further enhance the search experience on Commons. If you have a moment, please look over the project page set up on Commons to find a link to the prototype and leave your feedback on the talk page. Thanks for your time, I'll be posting message similar to this one to other pages on Commons. The team is looking forward to reading what you think. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:47, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

Questionnaire invitation (a new tool to be developed, to verify media data)

Gabrielchl (talkcontribs)

Hi there, I'm developing a tool to assist users in verifying (structured) data of media on commons.

To understand the community's needs, I would like to invite you to participate in this questionnaire: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScbNdJdQYN1yBvEeKne48eWDU6SBsdlUfNBAmZyvUEBkCR1Gg/viewform?usp=sf_link. It should take ~2 minutes.

Thanks a lot. :D

(You received this message as you seems to have experience with structured data on Wikimedia projects.)

Thanks for sharing this link. I submitted my response.

Gabrielchl (talkcontribs)

Thanks a lot, it'd help us a lot in developing a tool that suits the community's needs :)

Why did you add location (P276): National Maritime Museum to this category? The National Maritime Museum does not enjoy exclusivity to this article of clothing? Would a better location be Hawaii? How did you arrive at the Museum?
