Wikidata is now used in millions of infoboxes across the Wikimedia projects. This round table will bring together people that have been developing and implementing these infoboxes, in order to discuss their benefits and challenges, and future opportunities to improve the infoboxes and to use them across more languages and projects. The panel will be moderated by Andrew Lih, and will include:

  • Tpt and Harmonia Amanda, who will demo {{Databox}}, a fully automated infobox template for very small Wikipedias.
  • amadalvarez, who will show a collection of WD-powered infoboxes that work in cawiki since 2016 covering more than 80% of the whole cawiki.

We'll explain main features, how translation runs and reason to be used.
  • Mike Peel, who will show the multilingual Wikidata Infobox, which covers all topics, and is used in nearly 2.5 million Commons categories, and talk about Wikidata infoboxes on the English Wikipedia
