Invitation to participate in the WQT UI requirements elicitation online workshop


Dear Multichill,

I hope you are doing well,

We are a group of researchers from King’s College London working on developing WQT (Wikidata Quality Toolkit), which will support a diverse set of editors in curating and validating Wikidata content.

We are inviting you to participate in an online workshop aimed at understanding the requirements for designing effective and easy-to-use user interfaces (UI) for three tools within WQT that can support the daily activities of Wikidata editors: recommending items to edit based on their personal preferences, finding items that need better references, and generating entity schemas automatically for better item quality.

The main activity during this workshop will be UI mockup sketching. To facilitate this, we encourage you to attend the workshop using a tablet or laptop with PowerPoint installed or any other drawing tools you prefer. This will allow for a more interactive and productive session as we delve into the UI mockup sketching activities.

Participation is completely voluntary. You should only take part if you want to and choosing not to take part will not disadvantage you in any way. However, your cooperation will be valuable for the WQT design. Please note that all data and responses collected during the workshop will be used solely for the purpose of improving the WQT and understanding editor requirements. We will analyze the results in an anonymized form, ensuring your privacy is protected. Personal information will be kept confidential and will be deleted once it has served its purpose in this research.

The online workshop, which will be held on April 5th, should take no more than 3 hours.

If you agree to participate in this workshop, please either contact me at kholoud.alghamdi@kcl.ac.uk or use this form to register your interest https://forms.office.com/e/9mrE8rXZVg Then, I will contact you with all the instructions for the workshop.

For more information about my project, please read this page: https://king-s-knowledge-graph-lab.github.io/WikidataQualityToolkit/

If you have further questions or require more information, don't hesitate to contact me at the email address mentioned above.

Thank you for considering taking part in this project.

Ciao Multichill, l'immagine di quel dipinto, se messo in quella posizione su wikidata, va a comparire su decine di migliaia di immagini sul tema della "Madonna col Bambino", nella sezione "Altre immagini". Io credo che sia fuorviante per chi consulta una qualsiasi foto di opere d'arte della Madonna di trovarsi sempre questo confronto (tra l'altro neanche particolamente significativo, e mostrante un'immagine che, per quanto di qualità, mostra evidenti difetti di riflessi), per cui un po' di tempo fa ritenni più giusto che nessuna foto venisse legata a quella pagina. Magari tu conosci un altro metodo per non farla comparire così diffusamente, dando origine a un palese (per quanto magari involontario) spam? Grazie Sailko (talk) 19:48, 13 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hi Multichill, if that painting image is placed in that position on Wikidata, it will appear among tens of thousands of images on the theme of "Madonna and Child" in the "Other images" section. I believe it's misleading for anyone browsing through any artwork photo of Madonna to always encounter this comparison (which is not particularly significant, and shows an image that, although of quality, exhibits obvious reflection defects). Therefore, some time ago, I thought it was more appropriate for no photo to be linked to that page. Maybe you know another method to prevent it from appearing so extensively, giving rise to an obvious (albeit perhaps unintentional) spam? Thanks."--Sailko (talk) 19:49, 13 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Sailko: Ha, "don't mess up the data to fix you infobox" (free after Tagging for the renderer).
I see this happening at File:Raffaello, madonna solly, 1502 ca.JPG. Oops, looks like we went a bit too far with the other versions logic. @Jarekt: can you fix that? Multichill (talk) 20:38, 13 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Multichill, Sailko: am a bit confused. based on (P144) = Madonna and Child (Q9309699) in Solly Madonna (Q602813) makes no sense to me, as Q9309699 is an artistic theme, and not any specific work of art. So in this case I would just fix the strange property. But I also agree that here other versions logic went a bit too far, so if a painting is based in a poem and we have some image in the poem item, it would not make sense to display it. So maybe I should only limit the images to works of art. Or I can only shows if items have the same instance of (P31). Any ideas or opinions? --Jarekt (talk) 02:50, 14 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Jarekt, Multichill: I would not display image about the theme at all. A link to wikidata property is enough for me. --Sailko (talk) 08:19, 14 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Jarekt: I agree, based on (P144) shouldn't be used and removing it solves the issue
@Sailko: I found and fixed 133 cases. In your initial message you refer to "tens of thousands of images". Are you sure about that? Is it fixed now? If not, do you have some examples? Multichill (talk) 17:19, 21 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Multichill: Sorry for exaggerating, I didnt' check. I saw it in a few images and thoungt all the Madonna files had it within. Thank you. --Sailko (talk) 17:54, 21 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Sailko: no worries, happy we found and fixed it. Keep up adding all those great art photos! Multichill (talk) 11:01, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Good evening! Recently, your bot has stopped importing this property when linking Wikimedia Commons categories to Wikipedia articles. Could you eliminate this reason? I am actively illustrating personalities on Russian Wikipedia and this problem is acute. --MasterRus21thCentury (talk) 15:21, 21 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

@MasterRus21thCentury: all bots broke down (see phab:T319912) and I haven't recovered everything yet. It's running again and slowly working through commons:Category:Uses of Wikidata Infobox missing Commons Category statement. If you have other jobs you would like me to recover first, please let me know. Multichill (talk) 17:06, 21 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Materiality of a painting


You reverted this edit https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q3305213&diff=prev&oldid=2176005672 but it was a solution to this recent change: https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q110304307&diff=prev&oldid=2111632452 that make sense. Currently items instances of painting (Q3305213) are not anymore ontologicaly physical objects. This is an issue that require a solution. Best regards Shonagon (talk) 23:06, 11 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
