How I can upload an item like appearing in the url above R C Peña

@Penarc1: Hello, If I can understand you clearly, you want to create an item. There's currently an issue creating items, It hasn't been fixed yet, because I did some imports from other wiki, i think the ID the database recognises and the one that we are currently on doesn't tally, I'd file a task asap in that regards. Thanks. Ugochimobi (talk) 13:23, 25 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeap, donot worry R C Peña
@Penarc1: Hello, just wanted to let you know that you can now create items as the issue has been long resolved. Cheers Ugochimobi (talk) 22:51, 25 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

startins Qs with super high number?[edit]

How about starting Qs with super high number Q999999999xxxx , so in case there is compatibility or exchange with Wikidata at some point, that Q numbers do not overlap? --ZBlace (talk) 14:00, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ZBlace Hello, do you think that would be a good idea? I was actually thinking about that earlier this year but I wonder if it would be a good practice. I mean, what would now happen to the the QIDs below those high numbers? It simply means we'd be wasting IDs at least from my POV, let me know what you think.

@Ugochimobi these can be used to do (partial) import of Wikidata QIDs and replicate some of the functionality for test and maybe even prototype and development purposes. I do not think it is much of waste as GratisData is not filling fast and needs all the QIDs anyway. --ZBlace (talk) 06:33, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@ZBlace Talking about importing Wikidata items, I don't have a problem with that. In fact, I and @D063520 tried using this WikibaseSync tool to do a clean import, in fact it was the perfect tool to do importing and syncing too, our limitation is because we don't have a Query Service yet, like the
So we have to pause it. Ugochimobi (talk) 09:17, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ugochimobi is it possible to use query service of anyone else? --ZBlace (talk) 18:39, 29 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am unsure. If you think it would work please share your thoughts. Ugochimobi (talk) 19:04, 29 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@ZBlace Intentional ping Ugochimobi (talk) 19:05, 29 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ugochimobi I think you should check WMDE *(Wikimedia Germany) service Wikibase.Cloud and register for beta access to try this with GratisData...from what I understood when talking to them it could be possible. ZBlace (talk) 18:07, 31 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
