Wikidata: What do you expect in the next 1 or 2 years?

  • Title: Designing the future I: A roadmap for Wikidata
  • Proposed by: Lydia Pintscher
  • Description: Let's talk about the next two years of Wikidata. What do you expect to happen? What should the development be focused on? What should the content creation and maintenance be focused on? How can we unleash even more of Wikidata's potential?
  • Purpose: Get input from the attendees what they consider relevant for the next 1 or 2 years of Wikidata. This will not be a "I want a pony" session but instead focus on realistic goals and figuring out how everyone can help make them reality.
  • Targeted participants: Everyone with at least a basic understanding of Wikidata
  • Preparatory readings or materials: -

  • Hi Lydia Pintscher, thank you for your proposal. Can you explain how this discussion ties in with other Wikidata-related events happening at this Wikimania? Also, I need to declare a conflict of interest: Lydia is an employee of Wikimedia Deutschland, where I am a member of the board. Thanks, --Gnom (talk) 14:37, 16 April 2016 (UTC)[reply]
This one would be mostly about getting people to talk and brainstorm and express their wishes. The other sessions are more about teaching all things Wikidata. --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 12:48, 18 April 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Hi Lydia Pintscher (WMDE), if you have time, can you provide a list of Wikidata-related events at this Wikimania? --Gnom (talk) 15:01, 18 April 2016 (UTC)[reply]
So far we have one presentation in the critical issues presentation by one of our editors and nothing else as far as I am aware. I have submitted more but those were not accepted and I've just been told that our workshop likely won't make it either. --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 15:28, 18 April 2016 (UTC)[reply]
  • Sounds like an excellent topic again. We would need to work out the details a bit further, but a discussion about the near future of Wikidata would be good. Effeietsanders (talk) 21:32, 19 April 2016 (UTC)[reply]
  • I think it is an important topic for our future. Link to the critical issues pres : Critical issues presentations/Wikidata in Wikipedia. If retained... the discussion should be organized after the presentation... Anthere (talk)
