Welcome to WikiProject Persondata. Some Wikipedians formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's use of Persondata, a hidden template used to store biographical information as metadata.

In May 2015, it was decided that Wikidata had rendered Persondata superfluous, and its removal from Wikipedia is now in hand.

What was Persondata?[edit]

See Wikipedia:Persondata

What is Wikidata?[edit]

Wikidata is a sister project to Wikipedia, which holds data about subjects. Usable information from Persondata has been copied to Wikidata, and Persondata is now deprecated - see the RfC at Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals)/Archive 122#RfC: Should Persondata template be deprecated and methodically removed from articles?. Therefore, please do not add new Persondata templates to pages. The consensus is now to remove Persondata from articles. You are encouraged to get involved with Wikidata.

News[edit]

26 May 2015
Persondata has been deprecated by this RfC and will be removed from Wikipedia shortly.

Guidelines[edit]

The persondata template should be removed from articles; a bot is likely to do this shortly.
