✅ Presentation #3: Gadget for changing order of values in Wikidata

Speaker: Tohaomg

Task: Gadget for changing order of values in Wikidata

Description: Sometimes it happens that values in a WD statement are in a random order, when a chronological, alphabetical order, order of decreasing relevance or other order is needed. This gadget allows users to easily change order of values.

Links: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Tohaomg/rearrange_values.js — script itself, pending to be turned into a gadget — https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T252338

Do you agree with having your presentation recorded? — Yes

For now (untill it is made in to a gadget), you can enable it by adding:

mw.loader.load( '//www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=User:Tohaomg/rearrange values.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript' );

to your User:Username/common.js

The tool puts violet buttons with two arrows to each statement with at least two values, in any Q-item you are browsing. Click this violet button and two buttons (up and down) appear next to each value. Move values using those two buttons, then click button "Save", which is just under the title of the property.

✅ Presentation #4: A Wikidata Witches project

Speaker: Ciell

Task: Structure data of Witches - modelling

Speaker: Csisc

✅ Presentation #9: Wudele

Speaker: Jean-Fred

Task: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T252345

Description: Lots of Wikimedians rely on proprietary services (like Doodle) to make polls or schedule meetings, with bad privacy implications.

Some use open-source and ethical services like Framadate ; but this puts undue burden on the people/orgs hostings these services. Let's self-host such an instance instead.

✅ Presentation #13: Structured Data on Commons search prototype (VIDEO PRESENTATION)

Speaker: Hay Kranen ([[User:Husky]])

Task: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T252251

Description: There is currently no user-friendly way to search for SDoC media, because there is not a SPARQL endpoint like the one for Wikidata. However, there is an option to use the 'haswbstatement' action in the search engine, but this is pretty cumbersome because you need to know property and item ID's. So i made a visual way to search for SDoC media. Not online *yet* (need to squash a couple of bugs), but i've got a video presentation.
