I've published a design consultation for the computer-aided tagging tool. Please look over the page and participate on the talk page. If you haven't read over the project page, it might be helpful to do so first. The tool will hopefully be ready by the end of this month (October 2019), so timely feedback is important. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:09, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Structured Data - computer-aided tagging designs
Structured Data - modeling data
As you may have seen, there are community discussions underway on how to best model structured data on Commons.

Structured Data - blogs posted in Wikimedia Space
- 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.

Structured Data - testing other statements
You can now test using other statements for structured data on the file page on Test-Commons. Some datatypes are not yet available, such a coordinates, but further support will be extended soon. You can find more information about testing on the SDC talk page. The team looks forward to your feedback. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 16:41, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
Structured Data on Commons - IRC office hours this week, 18 July
The Structured Data team is hosting an IRC office hour this week on Thursday, 18 July, from 17:00-18:00 UTC. Joining information as well as date and time conversion is available on Meta. Potential topics for discussion are the testing of "other statements", properties that may need to be created for Commons on Wikidata soon, plans for the rest of SDC development, or whatever you might want to discuss. The development team looks forward to seeing you there. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:51, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
Stata readable file formats
The wikidata section in which you added many file formats has a major impact on the french Wikipedia article (https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stata). Would it be possible to make it shorter to keep the panel more readabe? Note also that Stata is never written in uppercase (a common remark to newcomers on the Statalist forum). Maybe we can just write something like "Stata dta 105-118"?
By the way, Stata 16 can now import SPSS and SAS tables.
I appreciate learning about the situation with the infobox on the French Wikipedia article for Stata.
Based on your request, I created a new item Q65521154 for the set of stata dta file formats. I am fine with adding this to the list of readable file format items on the Stata item in Wikidata, but I'm not sure about removing the statements currently there.
I hesitate to do this, because other pages/people/bots could be reusing the set of readable file formats currently listed on the Stata item. Perhaps you could request that the infobox not include readable file format data?
Structured Data - testing qualifiers for depicts
As you might have seen, testing is underway for adding qualifiers to depicts statements. If you have not left feedback already, the Structured Data on Commons development team is very interested in hearing about your experience using qualifiers on the file page and in the UploadWizard. To get started you can visit Test-Commons and chose a random file to test out, or upload your own file to try out the UploadWizard. Questions, comments, and concerns can be left on the Structured data talk page and the team will address them as best as they can. Thank you for your time. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 19:08, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
