Welcome to Wikidata Tours. The tours will show you how Wikidata works and teach you how to add data. Wikidata works a bit differently from a typical article-centered wiki like Wikipedia, so even if you've used a wiki before or you're coming to us from another Wikimedia project please take the tours. Each tour will take around 5 minutes to complete.

IP warning pop-up
By clicking on the "Start this tutorial" button, automatic edits will be performed by your user account. While the pages edited as part of the tours are not real item pages, your activity will still be recorded in the revision history of each page.
If you do not have a Wikidata user account, or if you have one but have not logged in, your computer's IP address will be recorded in the page history as having made the edit.
If you don't want your IP address logged so that everyone can see it, or if you would like to prevent seeing this IP warning pop-up for future edits, please create an account and/or log in before starting a tour.
Thank you for your interest in Wikidata:Tours. All feedback can be left at talk page.
