A wikidatan should be above all a happy person
The Wikidata Lounge is the place to look for help, relief, or comfort at all times. Welcome, and introduce yourself in the talk page! :)
This is also the place where we care about each other's well-being, by leaving disputes aside and realizing that we are all in this virtual space together of our own will and for the benefit of everyone. Our community is a jewel that we have to polish for it to shine brightly and give us warmth while we walk together the wiki way.
Verbal abuse, harassment, and oppression do happen, and here we learn to disable those negative dynamics by practicing nonviolence, kindness, and conflict resolution. It is a difficult road which requires us to work on our own inner peace, patience, and wisdom in order to be able to help ourselves and others.
