I just watched the talk https://media.ccc.de/v/wikidatacon2019-1060-new_usages_of_wikidata_to_support_underserved_language_communities#t=204 and it seems to me you start of talking about Wikidata in a way that ignores the ground reality. The uptick on nl-language labels in descriptions isn't because we have an active community of dutch speakers. It's because we have one bot that fills out nl labels by copying the label from other languages which in most cases would otherwise be shown as a language fallback.

About this board
Welcome to Wikidata, Frimelle!
Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!
Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:
- Introduction – An introduction to the project.
- Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
- Community portal – The portal for community members.
- Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
- Project chat – Discussions about the project.
If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Thanks for reaching out! I agree with you, and it was a very shallow interpretation of the numbers of editing and edits, because I wanted to put the focus more on reuse of the data in other projects. There is a lot more in-depth to say about how this language bias was created. However, there is also a relatively large community active on Wikidata that speaks Dutch, so I wouldn't disregard their influence (in a very positive way!) on the creation of content in Dutch. https://www.opensym.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/OpenSym2018_paper_18.pdf
I always thought this is very promising, as we can see that even a relatively small language community can influence the coverage of their language content- for example by bots. Could you point me to the bot that copies the labels from other languages?
Submission to Community Growth space

If you have any questions, please contact us on the space’s talk page or via “Email this user” to any of the leadership team listed on the space’s page.
Order of qualifiers
I hope you're doing well! I saw you got a paper at ISWC, that's awesome! Is it available anywhere? (Like, arXiv would be a good place to put it, I guess.)
I also have a question for you, about property ordering. I am puzzled by the order of qualifiers here: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q83259#P488 Intuitively, start date should be displayed before end date. Where is this order set? Is it the same principle as the ordering of statements on an item?
hmm, sorry about that, I should have figured out myself that qualifiers were kept in the order they were added! That makes sense actually.

Like some other community members, you are using Flow.
An increasing number of communities now use Flow or are considering it. Although Flow itself is not scheduled for major development during 2016 fiscal year, the Collaboration Team remains interested in the project and in providing an improved system for structured discussions.
You can help us make decisions about the way forward in this area by sharing your thoughts about Flow — what works, doesn't work or should be improved?
Thanks for your ideas and opinions about Flow!
Indeed the wrong property, thanks for noticing! Moved the reference to his occupation though to keep it.
