New notification when a page is connected to Wikidata

Robby (talkcontribs)

Thanks for your message on lb-Wikipedia. unfortunately there is no clear hint on where the translations to lb could be done (on, here on wikidata?, on meta?, ...) please provide a precise link for the translation to be provided.

Best regards and waiting for your feedback

Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talkcontribs)


In that case, a translation or summary just under the message on your Wikipedia would be perfect :) Thanks a lot for your help.

Thanks for your message on cywiki. Link to the onscreen text please so that it could be translated.

Hi Lea, we have a new property for storing SPARQL queries as text, however it would be nice if they could be connected with the query service somehow. For instance I imagine that there could be a gadget that collapses/formats the query and displays a link that users can click to be redirected into WDQS. Could you please look into how would be the best way to do it and ask if some development time could be dedicated to this?

Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

Thanks, I will have a look as soon as possible :)

Maybe something like this but I have a little problem with HTML encoding :(

Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

I created a ticket for your request, I'll keep you posted about updates :)

Micru (talkcontribs)

Thanks Lea, that is lovely from you!

Hi Lea, you cleaned the page for the next week but the message did not arrive anywhere. I believe something just went wrong.

Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

Thanks for caring. I just didn't have the time to send it so far, now it's done :)

Hi! I would like to propose a new tool that would be very useful in order to have a good overview of the items about a specific topic.

So, I'll try to describe it: the user would have to input a category item (es. Category:Ancient Greece (Q7215882), Category:Italy (Q1410903) ...) and a depth (es. 1, 2 ...); given these inputs, the tool should give a list of all the items containing at least one sitelink which is in a category that is a sitelink of the category item. Resume: A is the category item, B(a) are the categories which are sitelinks of A, C(B(a)) are all the articles cointained in B(a). Possible filters: by type of project (all projects; only Wikipedias; only Wikisources ...); by the date of the articles' creation. The main idea, however, is the possibility to explore at the same time all the articles belonging to a category which is common to two or more projects: this would be immensely useful (e.g., these Petscan lists would be unified into 2 or 3)! In my opinion, the best option would be integrating this function into Petscan, but is may also be an indipendent tool.

Tell me if I haven't been clear enough. Thank you!

I don’t think this is possible to implement using the Wikidata query service alone, since the categories of a sitelink aren’t available in WDQS. (It might be possible with SMalyshev’s proposal of accessing the MediaWiki API through a SPARQL service, but that’s not available yet.) So the tool would first get the sitelinks of the item (probably using Special:EntityData), then search for pages in these categories using the Wikipedia API, and then get the items of those pages again (probably using Special:ItemByTitle).

Please consider if a news related to the strategy process is relevant. @Base (WMF) and I are looking for an active, recognizable Wikidata community member who could effectively inform the community about the process*, and facilitate the discussion. It's urgent. The Cycle 2 is starting on April, 28.

* Apparently, we couldn't do that by ourselves. We don't know how to get noticed by a wide majority.

If it's within the scope, I'll prepare a short announcement, maybe on a subpage of my userpage.

Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

Hello @SGrabarczuk (WMF) @Base (WMF) :) The best way for you to reach the Wikidata community is to write a message on the Project Chat. I can help you review your message, I will also announce it in our weekly newsletter. Let me know what your next steps are :)

SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'll write a draft in my sandbox and ping you. An official pre-announcement addressed to all communities is being drafted now.

As for the Project Chat, in my opinion, it's basic, but insufficient. @Jane023 posted a short message there, and almost no one reacted (on the Project Chat or on the talkpage). I think we need to make the impact increased by using more channels of communication.

Jane023 (talkcontribs)

Yes I agree. I am also not sure how to get more people involved, though Yaroslav's comments in the mailing list indicated that people want to be involved, but they are just at a loss where to begin to start reading. I am also a bit at a loss how to summarize multiple chats and talks (about my own personal expectations/interests about Wikidata) into something that "represents the community". It would be nice if more people gave their views, but the more you request them to structure those views, the less likely they are to share them.

Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

I see. Then we should spread the word also on the Wikidata mailing-list, and I'll take care of the social networks.

SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talkcontribs)

There's my proposal: User:SGrabarczuk (WMF)/sandbox. I hope everything is put clearly.

Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

Thanks, this is a good summary. I see that the link on "Wikidata discussion" leads to the general talk page, probably a mistake.

I think you should try to be more specific about what you expect people to do, some "call to action". Here I see several links, that lead to some kind of discussions, but at a first approach I don't really see what people can do about this, where they can react and about what. That probably doesn't help people to feel committed.

SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talkcontribs)

That link leads to the page where Wikidata community was (cycle 1) and will be (cycles 2 and 3) supposed to add their feedback on the movement strategy process. There are no separate pages for the cycles.

As for the second issue, I'll fix that.

SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talkcontribs)

OK, I think it's ready to be sent.

Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

OK cool! I let you send your message on the project chat and to I'll share it then on social networks and the newsletter.
