Name Current working or use of Wikidata Future possibilities
Language
Growth
  • Referencing wikidata items for i18n of GettingStarted task API
Multimedia
  • Implement Structured data for media files on Commons (shared VisualEditor dependency):
  • Integrate with Wikidata to provide better media searches (shared VisualEditor dependency):
    • filter searches by categories (and/or intersecting tags) in your language
    • filter searches by item data (e.g. place created, language, media type, …)
    • filter searches by item meta-data (e.g. license, feedback, curation tags, ...)
VisualEditor
  • Wikidata descriptions to hint in your language in the link inspector (e.g. "Khan (village in Iran)"[3]
  • Language links include Wikidata-borne ones (but read-only)
  • Adding and editing of Wikidata language links within VE (bug 52105)
    • Let users add the page they are editing to a Wikidata item (and searching for the item), or remove it from one. Possible student project.

    • on inserting, auto-add your language's description as a caption (bug 51032)
    • filter searches by categories in your language (bug 51031)
    • filter searches by item data (e.g. place created, language, media type, …)
    • filter searches by item meta-data (e.g. licence, …)
  • Structured data on page triage tags (shared Growth, Flow dependency?) so they can be in the edit notices pop-out rather than the page
    • Also maybe prompt users with the need to identify their article with a Wikidata item?
    • Possibly based on page badges? Will only be page-related (nothing about sections needing more cites).
    • Would let us move page notices out of the content block and into the notice header.
    • Could include stubs? (Would we be happy to have objective automatic criteria for stubs?)
  • Use links' Wikidata descriptions to hint in your language in the link inspector
    • local links
    • interwiki links
    • Pre-registration of red links?
  • Inserting Wikidata property references ({{#property:xxx}})
    • Just a simple new kind of insertion panel in the Transclusion dialog
  • Auto-suggest media used on this page in other languages
    • Use the CommonsCat to find images?
  • Structured data for references, to …
    • auto-suggest reference completion on insert (used on other pages on this wiki)
    • auto-suggest references used about this topic (used on other language wikis)
  • Being able to suggest links/templates/… based on context of cross-wiki categories (?)
    • See Magnus's concept cloud?
