Users by language

I mainly contribute to French Wikipedia (Q8447) (see my user page w:fr:Utilisateur:PAC2) and I contribute to Wikidata since 2013.


In French Wikipedia (Q8447), I develop some infoboxes which relies on wikidata such as w:fr:Modèle:Infobox Jeu de données, w:fr:Modèle:Infobox Discipline, w:fr:Modèle:Infobox Concept socio-fiscal, w:fr:Modèle:Infobox Politique publique, w:fr:Modèle:Infobox Méthode scientifique, etc.


I like to explore wikidata with some notebooks.

I have written notebooks using wiki pages : User:PAC2/Ministres, User:PAC2/Portrait d'un prénom, User:PAC2/Economiste and Wikidata:WikiProject France/Administrations, User:PAC2/Tintindata, User:PAC2/Tour de France, User:PAC2/Gender diversity.

I also like to use Jupyter notebooks with Wikidata:PAWS. This allows to write SPARQL notebooks (see example) or R notebooks.

I also use Observablehq to explore Wikidata using notebooks:

Item documentation and generic queries templates[edit]

Wikidata has subject-predicate-object model. Yet, Q item pages only show statements where the Q item is subject. The most interesting part of the data : statements which have the Q item as an object are hidden. SPARQL queries make them discoverable. However, SPARQL queries are really hard to write (even with some experience). Therefore I believe that there is a lot of value to develop generic SPARQL queries for each kind of item. So far, I've written some generic queries templates : {{Notebook Given name}}, {{TP administrative area}}, {{TP organization}}, {{TP award}}, {{Generic queries for occupations}}, {{Generic queries for genre}}, {{Generic queries for filmmakers}}, {{Generic queries for actors}}, {{Generic queries for fictional characters}}, {{Generic queries for musicians}}, {{Generic queries for authors}}, {{Generic queries for positions}}, {{Generic queries for elections}}, and {{Generic queries for humans}}. Those templates are embedded in {{Item documentation}}, a documentation template which is automatically added to every talk page of an item via MediaWiki:Talkpageheader.

Gender diversity[edit]

I develop tools to measure gender diversity in Wikipedia articles using Wikidata :

I've also developed a tool which compute gender statistics at the user level :

Gender neutral labels[edit]

I'm concerned that Wikidata (at least in French) use male as a default gender and I think it would be important to use gender-inclusive language in Wikidata. I'm happy to we have collectively decided to use gender neutral labels for properties in French (Wikidata:Requests for comment/How to avoid to use male form as a generic form in property labels in French ?).

Documented queries[edit]

I believe that we should write better documentation for queries. See my proposal User:PAC2/Documented queries and Wikidata:Requests for comment/Documented and featured SPARQL queries.


I also develop {{Colorbar}}, {{SPARQL Inline}} and {{SPARQL Box}}, {{HasOccupation}}, {{TABernacle}} and I have created WikiProject Templates.
