Sentence after the headline asking to check for duplicates
Closed, ResolvedPublic5 Estimated Story Points


As a Wikidata editor I want other editors to check if the Lexeme they are about to create already exists in order to prevent duplicates.

We need to encourage checking for existing Lexemes before creating new ones.


Acceptance criteria:

  • a sentence is shown below the headline with some instructions for checking for existing Lexemes
  • the search link links to Special:Search with namespace restrictions already taken into account (see link below)
  • if a Lemma was already entered then the search link uses that Lemma for the search (see link below)
