|Persondata was deprecated by this RfC in May of 2015.|
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.
What was Persondata?
What is Wikidata?
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 that Persondata is no longe to be used in articles. You are encouraged to get involved with Wikidata.
