Hi Gerard, The problem that I have with Wikidata and automatically generated content like the reasonator does is: how do you know when has the script and the data reached an acceptable level? I've tested Reasonator a little with Romanian vilages and found errors in both the Wikidata fields and

Hoi, There are two parts to your question. - When is the available data good enough - When is the script that does the text generation good enough The second is something that you can help with. When it is good enough for one item that is really well developed like JS Bach, it is good

Hi Andy, that message comes up when the JavaScript is broken. I just tried the Bach link, and it works fine for me. Probably a stale browser cache; force-reloading the page should help. Cheers, Magnus On Fri, Feb 7, 2014 at 8:27 PM, Andy Mabbett a...@pigsonthewing.org.ukwrote: Your link has

It’s incredible that some governments think they own the language(s) mainly spoken in their country: fi.wikipedia.org is in Finnish but not related to Finland (non-Finnish people could visit fi.wikipedia.org, and Finnish people could visit other language Wikipedias). And it’s sad if they

In Australia, we (Wikimedia Australia) had to get fundraising approval before the 2010 fundraiser (when the chapters accepted and processed the payments and then passed a share back to the Wikimedia Foundation). This was made more complicated due to the fundraising laws being a state issue rather

Most importantly for all this, the SERVERS are not hosted in Finland (unless something snuck in there behind my back). Under US and EU laws, I would think there's no Finnish jurisdiction over where the servers are located. If the Finnish Police are asserting authority over any website written in
