Telegram link expired

Hi there! I wanted to connect to telegram chat, but couldn't do so as the invitation link on the main link has expired. Can somebody fix that, please? Adamant.pwn (talk) 01:16, 7 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I see this is not anymore an issue as the URL is valid. --Valerio Bozzolan (talk) 06:04, 13 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Link to showcase items?

I think it'd be nice to add a link to Wikidata:Showcase items somewhere on the main page, perhaps at the bottom of the current highlights box similar to how the news box has "more news" at the bottom of it. Alternatively, we could link over where it's mentioned with Douglas Adams (Q42). This might draw some more attention to the page, helping incentivize the creation of high-quality items that can be used as models for others. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 18:11, 7 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

{{Edit request}}

Requesting implementation per the silent consensus above. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 21:49, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Sdkb Sounds good to me. I'm removing the {{Edit request}} without action, because it appears you should be able to do it yourself via editing Wikidata:Main Page/Content. Feel free to ping me if it's not working for you. Martin Urbanec (talk) 15:48, 24 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
✓ Done here. I had some difficulty doing the translation tags, so I'd appreciate if anyone else could improve that. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 04:43, 25 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Sdkb It appears that page is maintained by a bot, and that the link needs to be added elsewhere. I'm not sure if changing Wikidata:Main_Page/Content to add the link after transcluding Wikidata:Main Page/Popular is a good idea. An alternative might be to make the bot always add the link?
CC @Pasleim as the operator of DeltaBot, who might have some thoughts on how to do this. Martin Urbanec (talk) 22:13, 26 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

in Learn about data section

Where can I edit "Item: Earth (Q2)" for Turkish because it's not "Öğe", it's "Öge". --Hedda Gabler (talk) 19:15, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Hedda Gabler: It can be translated on (separate account needed, it takes some days to go live). —Tacsipacsi (talk) 21:48, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you @Tacsipacsi: Hedda Gabler (talk) 22:46, 21 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]



Today a Q111111111 item has been created. Is this event enough worthy to be note on Wikidata:News? --Emaus (talk) 12:11, 6 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Wikidata:News show the item number or number of items

Some items number are deleted and skipped by the software, and when an item number is deleted it can't be recreated. So I think the number of items should be used as the priority for item counts and milestones? Thingofme (talk) 14:05, 18 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
