Hallo Denny,

ich beschäftige mich schon seit längerer Zeit mit Wikidata und deren Nutzern. Einer der Nutzer ist Google und wie ich deiner Benutzerseite und der Ankündigung im Project Chat entnehmen kann beschäftigst du dich in deiner Arbeit mit Wikidata. In der Wikipedia gibt es immer wieder im Kurier Diskussionen über Wikidata und dort kommt auch die Kritik, dass es eine billige Datenquelle für Google ist und dieses der Hauptnutzer ist. Wie kann sichergestellt werden, dass es nicht zu einer Ausnutzung der Wikidataaktiven durch Google kommt und wie viel Geld spart Google durch die Nutzung von Wikidata oder welcher Mehrwert konnte durch Wikidata generiert werden. Auch wenn die Inhalte frei sind sollte man an die Ersteller denken. Bitte bemühe dich um eine Stellungnahme von Google und der Wikimedia Foundation. Die Frage für wen beteilige ich mich an Wikidata ist eine sehr wichtige und meiner Meinung nach sollte man sicherstellen, dass die Nutzung der Inhalte nicht hauptsächlich für kommmerzielle Interessen erfolgt, wobei mir bewusst ist, dass es einen Mehrwert für Leser bringt, wenn ihnen Informationen angezeigt werden und was Wikipedia betrifft viele Leute über eine Suchmaschine zu den Artikeln gelangen, somit tragen sie mit zum Erfolg und Reichweite bei.

Hi, ich brauche etwas Zeit für eine Antwort, wollte Dich aber wissen lassen, dass ich Deine Frage nicht ignoriere.

Hogü-456 (talkcontribs)

Hast du dir inzwischen überlegt, was du mir auf meine Frage antwortest. Es wäre schön, wenn du darauf antwortest.

Denny (talkcontribs)

Nein, wegen WikidataCon lag das unbearbeitet auf meiner ToDo-Liste. Da das jetzt vorbei ist, sollte es vorankommen. Danke für Deine Geduld!

Hogü-456 (talkcontribs)

Bitte versuche auf meine Frage zu antworten. Diese Fragestellung ist eine wichtige und es gibt in dem Strategiedokument auch die Ankündigung, dass man sich über eine Gebühr für ein starkes Nutzen von APIs Gedanken machen könnte. Mir persönlich ist es wichtig, dass meine Arbeit hier in Wikidata auch der Allgemeinheit hilft und nicht hauptsächlich für kommerzielle Zwecke genutzt wird. -- Hogü-456 (talk) 18:20, 2 February 2020 (UTC)

Argh, ja, Du hast Recht. Mea culpa!

Structured Data - blogs posted in Wikimedia Space

1
MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

There are two separate blog entries for Structured Data on Commons posted to Wikimedia Space that are of interest:

  • Working with Structured Data on Commons: A Status Report, by Lucas Werkmeister, discusses some ways that editors can work with structured data. Topics include tools that have been written or modified for structured data, in addition to future plans for tools and querying services.
  • Structured Data on Commons - A Blog Series, written by me, is a five-part posting that covers the basics of the software and features that were built to make structured data happen. The series is meant to be friendly to those who may have some knowledge of Commons, but may not know much about the structured data project.
I hope these are informative and useful, comments and questions are welcome. All the blogs offer a comment feature, and you can log in with your Wikimedia account using oAuth. I look forward to seeing some posts over there. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:33, 23 September 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

My apologies if this is a duplicate message for you, it is being sent to multiple lists which you may be signed up for.

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 January or Thursday, 10 January 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on mediawiki.org because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:09, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

The previous message from today says captions will be released in November in the text. January is the correct month. My apologies for the potential confusion. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:43, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

  • The info portal on Structured Commons now includes a section on GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums).
  • We are currently planning the first GLAM pilot projects that will use structured data on Wikimedia Commons. One project has already started: the Swedish Heritage Board researches and develops a prototype tool to provide improved metadata (translations, data additions...) from Wikimedia Commons back to the source institution. Read the project brief.
  • The documentation for batch uploads of files to Wikimedia Commons will be improved in 2019, as part of preparing for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons. To prepare, the GLAM team at the Wikimedia Foundation wants to understand better which types of documentation you already use, and how you like to learn new GLAM-Wiki skills and knowledge. Fill in a short survey to provide input!
Stay up to date!

Hi,

Could you make a map of Wikidata items of Singapore ? This could help to define goals for the Singaporean WP Project (and even a WM chapter..) Each article would be red dots on the OpenStreetMap map.

Thank you

Denny (talkcontribs)

@Addshore:might be able to help, I don't have the code up and running currently.

I asked him months ago he doesn't answer

Thanks I’ll try to hack something with it

Structured Data Newsletter - Research link fix

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Greetings,

The newsletter omitted two interwiki prefixes, breaking the links on non-meta wikis as you might see above. Here are the correct links:

  1. m:Research:Curation workflows on Wikimedia Commons—a project that seeks to understand the current workflows of Commons contributors who curate media (categorize it, delete it, link to it from other projects, etc.).
  2. m:Research:Technical needs of external re-users of Commons media—soliciting feedback from individuals and organizations that re-use Commons content outside of Wikimedia projects, in order to understand their current painpoints and unmet needs.

My apologies, I hope you find the corrected links helpful.

Welcome to the newsletter for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons! You can update your subscription to the newsletter and contribute to the next issue. Do inform others who you think will want to be involved in the project!

Community updates
  • Our dedicated IRC channel: wikimedia-commons-sd webchat
  • Since our last newsletter, the Structured Data team has moved into designing and building prototypes for various features. The use of multilingual captions in the UploadWizard and on the file page has been researched, designed, discussed, and built out for use. Behind the scenes, back-end work on search is taking place and designs are being drawn up for the front-end. There will soon be specifications published for the use of the first Wikidata property on Commons, "Depicts," and a prototype is to be released to go along with that.
