The "Nice queries" have left us

Looks like the wdqs proxy and frontend died, I restarted them :) Addshore (talk) 08:30, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

cannot add item

tried to create an item to add an instance of a wiki base install but it will not let me.--LauraHale (talk) 08:15, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, the wiki is currently fairly locked down. I added you to the "Trusted" group as documented on the main page :) You should be able to change stuff now! You can also add others to the Trusted group now too! Addshore (talk) 15:01, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Me too. Charles Matthews (talk) 09:50, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

I have also added you to the trusted group :) Addshore (talk) 11:51, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Me too. Physikerwelt (talk) 08:31, 22 December 2021 (UTC)

I have added you to the trusted group :) --Kghbln (talk) 20:54, 4 January 2022 (UTC)

What is the license

What is the license for contributions to this registry? Nothing at Project:Copyrights... Also asked via Telegram Podehaye (talk) 15:55, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

This is indeed an important and still open question. If unanswered on must assume copyright to avoid trouble. Cheers --Kghbln (talk) 14:39, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
Clarified with this edit. --Kghbln (talk) 15:11, 7 October 2020 (UTC)

project chat; property Status


  • There's no template "ping" so what can we use to notify each other?
  • Is there a project chat here?
  • Please add a property Status (eg active/passive)
  • I wanted to edit the prop "main page" of Q13 to I had to add it as a new value, then delete the existing value "unknown": why?
  • How could I add properties?
  • Could you add the Wikibase Registry logo as file favicon.ico, so I can distinguish when open in a browser tab?

Exploration feedback available in french

A detailed technical exploration of Wikibase install with Docker, and some explanations of the main features, are available in french : As suggested here, a link could be added somewhere on this page ? Jumtist (talk) 12:56, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

Incorrect CAPTCHA answer about fingers

The CAPTCHA asks "How many fingers does a hand have + 1?" The supposedly right answer is 6, however to me this is incorrect because thumb is not a finger. Either it should be five, or (probably better) it should say "digits" rather than "fingers". GreenReaper (talk) 15:46, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Adding a new Wikibase

Hey, I'm currently developing a Wikibase for name authority and would love to create an item for it here. Could I be listed as trusted to do so? Thanks Jason.nlw (talk) 15:13, 18 May 2023 (UTC)

Introducing Wikibase World

I have launched Wikibase World, a successor to the Wikibase Registry hosted on Wikibase.Cloud, where it will continue to receive software updates from Wikimedia Deutschland. Here is a mapping between entities of the two wikis, with Wikibase Registry in the left column and Wikibase World in the right. Harej (talk) 20:04, 13 June 2023 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. I have trouble to get my email confirmed at, i.e. I do not receive any email for confirmation (an hour has passed, and I checked my spam folders). Passing the CAPTCHA was also troublesome but in the end I was able to get passed masses of blurry pictures. I guess spam should not be the problem, which is good. Cheers --Kghbln (talk) 09:02, 14 June 2023 (UTC) PS I took the liberty to create a Wikidata item for the new website: PPS I did not touch the properties connected with
Kghbln, I understand there are issues with emails going out at the moment, but it should not affect your ability to edit (just the status of having your email confirmed). Can you confirm that you can still edit? Harej (talk) 01:25, 15 June 2023 (UTC)
No, unfortunately, I cannot. I get a permission error telling me I can only edit pages once I confirm my email. --Kghbln (talk) 06:57, 15 June 2023 (UTC)
--Kghbln I have manually marked your account as confirmed. Harej (talk) 18:06, 15 June 2023 (UTC)
It still does not work. I suspect that doing a confirmation is a hard requirement if $wgEmailConfirmToEdit is set to true. --Kghbln (talk) 09:46, 16 June 2023 (UTC)
That is annoying, sorry you have to put up with this. In any instance I have added you as a subscriber to the Phabricator ticket. As the transition is complete, I am now going to put this wiki in read-only mode. Harej (talk) 14:55, 16 June 2023 (UTC)
