Welcome to Wikidata, Nikki!

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!

Rollback[edit]

Hey, thanks for reverting vandalism around here! I've given your account rollback rights, so you can revert just a bit faster :). If you don't want them, then let me know, I can remove them too. Thanks again! Ajraddatz (talk) 02:12, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

@Ajraddatz: I'm glad to help. :) The rollback rights are appreciated, thanks! - Nikki (talk) 02:39, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

en-gb[edit]

Hello, why did your bot you make this change? -- FriedhelmW (talk) 18:49, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

@FriedhelmW: Hi :) It's updating British English labels/descriptions where the main English label has been changed, since most people only change one of them and then they get out of sync.
To be more specific, in this case, British English label has two parts separated by a comma and no description, where the first part (Ostenfeld) is the English label and the second part (Nordfriesland) is part of the English description. That happens a lot for places, where the second part isn't part of the name, but is useful disambiguating information, and implies that the English one is more up to date than the British English one, so it updates the British English to match the English one.
The bot tries to be cautious and only edit things it's pretty confident about, but do let me know if you spot any problems! :)
- Nikki (talk) 19:45, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
What's the use of having the same texts for en-gb as for en? Isn't this completely redundant? -- FriedhelmW (talk) 15:16, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
@FriedhelmW: The use is being able to use the site properly in British English, e.g. without the labels and descriptions, item pages just say "No label defined" and "No description defined". I would like to see a better way of handling language variants like this, but for now we can only work with what we've got. - Nikki (talk) 22:07, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

RfD[edit]

If you spot invalid requests (such as that item with 50+ incoming links), it is no problem if you mark it as {{Notdone}} yourself. No problem if a trusted user like you does that. Mbch331 (talk) 12:53, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

@Mbch331: Thanks, it's good to know that it's OK for me to do that. :) I'll try and be a bit bolder next time! - Nikki (talk) 14:50, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
Don't be too afraid to do something. If you do something we think you better shouldn't too, we will tell you. We won't block you, just because you did something you shouldn't have done. Mbch331 (talk) 14:53, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Admin?[edit]

Hey man. Are you interested to become an administrator on Wikidata? I see that you are involved in administrative areas and giving you the tools would be beneficial for the project. I can nominate you if you want to. Thanks! Jianhui67 talkcontribs 15:08, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

I would definitely vote in your favour. I think you'll be a great admin. Mbch331 (talk) 15:54, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
@Jianhui67, Mbch331: I would definitely be interested, yes. Thanks for the support. :)
There you go, Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Administrator/Nikki. Accept the nomination and transclude it to the main RfA page. Good luck! :) Jianhui67 talkcontribs 05:26, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

IPA[edit]

Hi! Why You've removed stress marks? --Kikos (talk) 06:11, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

@Kikos: I edited some which were using an apostrophe to use the correct character (U+‎02C8 MODIFIER LETTER VERTICAL LINE) instead. I didn't intend to remove any stress marks! :) Which change are you looking at? - Nikki (talk) 06:47, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
I mean changes You described :) I'll further use correct character. --Kikos (talk) 08:47, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Proposal[edit]

Hi Nikki, you had left a commment at this. Tobias1984 thinks it could need more input. Is there some you want to add? I suppose you could also directly create it. --- Jura 08:57, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

@Jura1: Sorry for the slow response, I was away for a while. I wouldn't have created the property when there's no support for it, but it looks like you got someone else to do it anyway. - Nikki (talk) 10:22, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

IMDb[edit]

Can you check instance of (P31) before to add IMDb, I found a lot of imdb on album (Q482994) (ex. Grease). --ValterVB (talk) 17:03, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

@ValterVB: Thanks. I've stopped it from adding any title IDs for now. I'll look into removing the ones which are wrong in the morning. - Nikki (talk) 20:08, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Top 10 primary sources tool users[edit]

Hi @Nikki,

The primary sources tool status page says that you are in the top 10 most active users of the tool, congratulations! If you have not tried it yet, I would like to invite you to activate and play with the FBK-strephit-soccer dataset: it is a small demo dataset to support the StrepHit IEG proposal. I would really appreciate if you could endorse (blue button) or comment the idea on the proposal page. Due to your involvement in the primary sources tool, your voice is really precious, so please leave a trace in the proposal if you like the general idea (even if the soccer domain does not ring a bell to you).

Looking forward to your feedback.
Cheers,

--Hjfocs (talk) 09:06, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

@Hjfocs: Done. :) I have to say I don't like the name though. In English, strep refers to a type of bacteria and the illness it causes, so it sounds like it would be something to do with biology or medicine - not my area of interest, which is why I didn't pay any attention to it before. - Nikki (talk) 12:15, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the endorsement, @Nikki! It would be nice to count on you as a power tester. If it sounds fine, feel free to add yourself as a volunteer (I will make the join button available again for you).
The name is actually an intentional pun: I understand it can be misleading and will definitely consider a rename after the project review process.
Cheers, --Hjfocs (talk) 13:16, 28 September 2015 (UTC)

Just a hint: if it's queued, you have to click once more. At least, I have never seen it come out of the queue by itself. --- Jura 14:24, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

iTunes ID[edit]

I know you have a bot that imports the Discogs id from MusicBrainz. Recently the property iTunes album ID (P2281) was created. Do you think you could import that information from MusicBrainz with your bot? Mbch331 (talk) 10:18, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

@Mbch331: I should be able to, although not right now (currently busy adding dates of birth/death :)). - Nikki (talk) 10:30, 9 November 2015 (UTC)
No problem. 1 task at the time is fine. Mbch331 (talk) 10:34, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

Named after in filmography[edit]

Hi, I just saw you removed the named after I added in Sean Connery filmography. I had added it because of what I saw in Property talk:P1283:

  • Inverse property of named after (P138):
  • If [item A] has filmography (P1283) with value [item B],then [item B] should also have named after (P138) with value [item A].
  • Exceptions are possible as rare values may exist.
  • List of this constraint violations: Wikidata:Database reports/Constraint violations/P1283#Inverse

Does it mean this constraint should not exist ? Koxinga (talk) 17:02, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

@Koxinga: I wasn't aware of that constraint, thanks for letting me know. I do think it should be removed, so I've asked about it on Property talk:P1283. - Nikki (talk) 19:45, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Playing range image[edit]

playing range image (P2343) is ready. Mbch331 (talk) 14:10, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Complex names[edit]

Why do you remove relations between complex names and their parts, e.g. in Juan Rodríguez (Q439399)? --Infovarius (talk) 10:49, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

@Infovarius: I removed them because they are disambiguation pages and it doesn't make sense to me to say that the disambiguation page "Juan Rodríguez" is part of the disambiguation page "Juan Francisco Rodríguez", because it's not. If you are trying to say that the disambiguation pages have similar names, I don't think part of (P361) and has part (P527) are the right properties to use. - Nikki (talk) 11:29, 29 November 2015 (UTC)
All pages that are listed on "Juan Francisco Rodríguez" can be also listed on "Juan Rodríguez". So these disambigs should be somehow connected. I don't know whether part of (P361) or maybe subclass of (P279) is the best way. --Infovarius (talk) 05:25, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

Official name[edit]

Hi,

official name (P1448) is for places, for humans you should use name in native language (P1559) instead.

Regards, Thibaut120094 (talk) 12:04, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

@Thibaut120094: What about names which are not in the person's native language, or if I don't know the person's native language? Also, if official name (P1448) is supposed to be restricted to places, someone should probably change the label and/or description, it's currently very generic. :/ - Nikki (talk) 12:35, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

WMF projects - translation of labels and descriptions[edit]

lang=en : ?lang=en&props=31,218,219,220,506,1406&q=claim[1800]

Dear Nikki! I have seen your edits at some pages about WMF projects and/or about languages as Malayalam (Q36236) and want to let you know that the number of Wikidata:Database reports/WMF projects there is also the page Wikipedia versions has increased to more then 409; there are pages from Wikibook project pages to Wikiversity and Wiktionary project pages. You may be interested in adding labels and descriptions in other languages. Please follow also the discussion at property talk:P218 and comment there. Best regards Gangleri also aka I18n (talk) 23:10, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Hi

Just wanted to say thanks for all your help matching the UNESCO Atlas of the World's Languages in Danger on Mix n' Match. I've started to message Wikiprojects to try to find more contributors, if you have any suggestions please ping me.

Thanks again

native label (P1705) on Mae Sot (Q475964)[edit]

I don't think its within the scope of native label (P1705) to add other languages than Thai for thr administrative structures in Thailand, as the property definition states "official language". There are certainly many Burmese and Shan speakers in Mae Sot, but that does not make their languages official - we don't add the Turkish name for Berlin either. IMHO these two languages only belong to the labels, just cannot add Shan there yet. Ahoerstemeier (talk) 10:26, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

@Ahoerstemeier: The description says official or original language, which I understand to mean that names in the original languages of the area are also acceptable. The property's label is wrong and quite misleading if only official languages are allowed, because many places have native names which are not in official languages. I don't see why it would need to be restricted to official languages though, because if someone wants to only use native names in official languages, we have official language (P37) to say which of the languages are official.
I don't think labels are sufficient either. It's impossible to add labels if the language isn't supported, whereas statements can have qualifiers. The development team are also stricter about which languages they plan to add for labels, whereas they plan to add any language that is needed for monolingual text (see Wikidata:Project_chat#New_language). Labels also don't say which are the native names, e.g. you can't use labels to decide to list Thai, Burmese and Shan like en:Mae Sot District does (Berlin isn't a good comparison, because en:Berlin doesn't list a Turkish name).

Auto taxobox from WD[edit]

Hi, on the Bot request page you mentioned: I'm not sure if anyone has anything for taxon items yet though (and I don't have time to look for examples right now. Any chance you could point me in the right direction please? Just as reminder: We will be creating 10k new articles on cy-wiki - all birds. I would like the taxobox to come from WD rather than copy the one from enwiki. I'll create / import temlates in cywiki, to hold the info, of course. Thanks! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 10:52, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

@Llywelyn2000: Hi :) I'd forgotten about that, thanks for reminding me. I just had a look and managed to find Module:Taxobox. If I'm not mistaken, that's pretty much exactly what you're looking for, right? - Nikki (talk) 13:28, 10 March 2016 (UTC)
Looks good!!! Many thanks Nikky! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 14:03, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

More social media relationships from MusicBrainz?[edit]

Thanks for your work in importing all that great info from MusicBrainz. Would it be possible for you to add Facebook, Youtube and Instagram? Thinkcontext (talk) 17:33, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

@Thinkcontext: It should be possible, but right now my bot can't edit because the server it's on has been blocked by an overzealous range block. :( Hopefully it won't take too long to get it unblocked and then I can test the changes I made. - Nikki (talk) 21:37, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
@Thinkcontext: It's adding stuff now. :) - Nikki (talk) 18:01, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
@Nikki: Wow, thanks! Thinkcontext (talk) 18:20, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

Asian dates[edit]

Hi Nikki,

Some time ago, you imported a series of Asian dates. I was wondering if you would be interested in running the same code on zhwiki or kowiki. From pages I come across at Wikidata:Database reports/Deaths at Wikipedia/1950, it seems it may be worth doing it.
--- Jura 06:59, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Is it possible that you already did them and what's left are just year-only dates? In that case, I could directly add them based on the list.
--- Jura 07:45, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
@Jura1: I did already do a lot of them, yes. :) The ones which are left are not only year-only dates (I didn't skip year-only dates). If it didn't add a date, it either couldn't parse it or it skipped it because the date was older than a particular date (for jawiki, it skips anything older than 1583, for kowiki it skips anything older than 1895 and for zhwiki it skips anything older than 1950 (because en:Adoption of the Gregorian calendar#Adoption_in_East_Asia sounds complicated and I wanted confirmation from someone who can understand Chinese before adding older dates)). I'm currently a bit busy, but I can look at improving the parsing in a couple of days and maybe see if I can figure out which years can be reliably considered Gregorian rather than Julian on zhwiki (if you want to help, feel free to ask someone who speaks Chinese about that :)). - Nikki (talk) 15:31, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
If the bulk is done, I can do the remaining ones with Pasleim's tool. As people keep adding dates at Wikipedia rather than Wikidata, you might want to re-run the same code once in a while.
Personally, I focus on 20th century dates, at least until something is done about the calendar model problem. If you want to parse more dates, you might want to try fiwiki. It doesn't seem to have that many infoboxes and the format is fairly straightforward (with a few exceptions). The wikis column on [1] can give an idea of what's left.
--- Jura 18:57, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Coordinates of asteroid feature[edit]

Hi! Thanks for adding coordinate location (P625) to Vibidia (Q7924611). However, there seems to be a problem with the P625 parameter for astronomical objects, we need to have some way of qualifying that the "globe" parameter is not Earth (Q2), as otherwise other tools will believe that this location is for somewhere on Earth. Can we use any valid Q value for "globe"? If so, would a "globe" qualifier of 4 Vesta (Q3030) be appropriate here? -- The Anome (talk) 08:32, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

@The Anome: Hi :) Any item can be used as a globe, but for some bizarre reason the globe can't be changed on the website, only via the API (the ticket is phab:T56097). I don't think we need to add a qualifier because the items already have located on astronomical body (P376) statements (I also add those if they're missing so we know what the right globe is). Ideally there would be a bot regularly fixing the globe based on the P376 statements and I think someone might have already run a bot because there seem to be fewer than before, but I'm not sure if it's being done regularly. - Nikki (talk) 09:10, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! What an annoying bug. The problem is import and export of coordinates: the way I look at it is that the coordinate describes an abstract point in space anchored to the surface of a globe, and that abstract point is distinct from the entity being associated with that coordinate (consider, for example, that an entity might have two coordinates, or a single coordinate be shared by two co-located entities). Without a globe, they are meaningless. For this reason, all coordinate location (P625) values really should have explicit "globe" parameters associated with them, and they should not default to Earth (Q2) as they do at the moment -- located on astronomical body (P376) is really not enough, and P376 applies to the entity, not the coordinate (although the two should always match -- but that's a useful semantic constraint, not a modelling error.) Perhaps the absence of enforcement of this is the root cause of these problems.-- The Anome (talk) 09:29, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
@The Anome: Yeah, it is annoying. :( Note that the P625 statements do already have explicit globe parameters associated with them (e.g. if you look at the JSON representation of Rheasilvia (Q2631008) and search for "globe", you'll see that there's a "globe" parameter - which for that item is correctly set to Vesta :)), it's just that we can't change them very easily yet. I'm definitely not saying located on astronomical body (P376) is the solution (the solution is to fix that ticket so that people can enter the right globe), only that it already provides enough information to fix the P625 statement. I don't think defaulting to Earth is the wrong thing to do, the vast majority of coordinates people add are Earth ones. We just need to be able to change it when we want a different globe. - Nikki (talk) 10:58, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
I've also added a bot request here. - Nikki (talk) 11:12, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
Hi Nikki. Yes, you're quite right about all this. Thanks for clarifying things, and many thanks for filing the ticket and bot request. -- The Anome (talk) 19:52, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
@The Anome: It seems there was already a bot and it now seems to be running regularly - Special:Contributions/LocatorBot :D It fixed Vibidia (Q7924611) a few days ago as well. - Nikki (talk) 06:26, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know. I guess they'll get along to fixing the user interface eventually. -- The Anome (talk) 06:55, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

AniDB[edit]

Hi, I saw you worked on fixing the Anime News Network identifier properties, so could you help me fix the AniDB property? For this one, it's much simpler, since the website has changed to a very simple format, e.g. https://anidb.net/cr24625 for Q7981253, where cr is a prefix for creators, a is for anime, etc, so changing the URL to https://anidb.net/$identifier should be easy, and won't require making new properties. This will also allow for linking to other types of entries, such as music releases. Then we'll need a bot to change the existing uses (although at least a few won't need to be changed). I'm not quite sure how to accomplish either step. Thanks, Innotata (talk) 00:09, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

Welsh (cywiki) species labels should begin with uppercase letter[edit]

you may remember uploading Welsh names of birds, for me. And a good job you did too. It has now been brought to my attention, however, that these names should all have a capitalised first letter. Can you bot this for me please? Llywelyn2000 (talk) 18:25, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Strange merge[edit]

Hi Nikky you have merged Q19694975 in Myanmar (Q836) but Q19694975 was an item about a person. It was an error? --ValterVB (talk) 19:31, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

@ValterVB: The item was not originally about a person. Those statements came from an unrelated enwiki sitelink which was added much later (and then deleted). - Nikki (talk) 20:56, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Sim Min[edit]

The official name is Sim Min, accoring to her's blog @vjsimin. And Sim is surname. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 07:40, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

@Idh0854: Sorry for the slow response. I can't find "Sim Min" on that page. I've spent some time searching though and I do agree now that "Shimmin" is not the best English label, but I don't think "Sim Min" is the best one either:
According to Help:Label, the label should be the the name she is most commonly known by, so the English label should be the name she is most commonly known by in English. From what I can find, that is "Shim Min". For example, I found it written that way here, here, here, here, on wiki.d-addicts.com/Shim_Min and even on the English Wikipedia: en:Cruel City. It's also written that way on her agency's page (although that page is only partly in English). The only site I found using "Sim Min" is this one.
Please don't remove aliases which are correct. There are no rules saying that names have to follow a particular romanisation system (in fact, Help:Aliases says alternative romanisations should be aliases). Her real name is given as "Shim Soon Min" here and here and as "Shim Soonmin" here and here so those should both be aliases. While she was involved in Hello! Project, she was known in English as "Shimmin" (see the last two links), so if that is no longer going to be the label, it should be an alias.

Foto ausgetauscht: Bonn, "Haus der Springmaus"[edit]

Hi Nikki, weil ich mich mit Wikidata nicht auskenne, frage ich mal bei Dir nach. Du hast am 31. Mai 2015 ein Wikidata-Objekt ("Haus der Springmaus" in Bonn/Deutschland) mit einem Foto versehen, dass ich 2008 vom Eingang des Hauses gemacht habe. Gestern habe ich das Haus komplett fotografiert und heute Bilder davon auf Commons geladen. Eben habe ich in Wikidata das alte Foto ersetzt durch meine gestrige Aufnahme. Ist das so in Ordnung oder muss ich noch etwas beachten? Danke & Greetings --Sir James (talk) 15:36, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

@Sir James: Ja, das ist in Ordnung. Das Foto vom Eingang war damals halt das einzige Foto bei Commons, auf dem man den Namen sehen konnte. Das neue find ich viel besser, vielen Dank dafür! - Nikki (talk) 07:29, 3 November 2016 (UTC)

Consider drop vote-keeping number of platform tracks (P1103)?[edit]

This property has key concept leak, many concepts of platforms (not only time-or-history-related!) are mixed up by this property, so keeping it will only make hurts to WikiProject Trains (Q53051).

As a simple example: Changhua Station (Q5071979) has only one track between platform 1 and platform 2 (as again, Spanish solution (Q1342434)), so the de-facto value "5" is logical wrong. Then how can you define the real "number of platform-somethings"? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 15:16, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

@Liuxinyu970226: I can't change my vote there because the proposal is not clear about what will happen to the existing data. number of platform tracks (P1103) is intended for the number of tracks which are accessible from a platform. We don't yet know how to store other ways of counting. Wikidata:WikiProject Railways should discuss it and find a solution before we decide to delete any properties. - Nikki (talk) 07:47, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
@Nikki: So in your opinion what should be the correct value of P1103 in Changhua Station (Q5071979), keep 5? Or change to 3/4? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 22:26, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
Also, the value used on Stratford station (Q801480), 15, is doubtful. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 22:56, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

Language code review[edit]

Hi Nikki,

Are you interested in doing language code reviews for Wikidata (mainly for monolingual strings)? It seems that people that were meant to do it before either lost interest or aren't doing it.

Feedback request[edit]

Greetings,

The team that made ORES is working on a new tool called JADE. The new tool is for humans to review the work of ORES, to provide human feedback and oversight. The team would like to hear about how your experience using ORES has been on your wiki, and what you might expect from a tool like the one proposed. If you are interested, you can comment on this page on mediawiki.org.

The team is also interested in sharing updates with you as JADE is developed. Short messages will be sent to this talk page every month or two, linking to a page with further information. Is this something you would like to sign up for? Simply reply to me here if so and I will put your name on the list.

Happy editing to you. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 19:23, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
