I think it is time for the next step in the Wikidata development: a better
integration in Wikipedia and her sisterprojects.
Every day thousands of articles are created, and many of those are not
added to Wikidata, even while often an item about this subject exists.
Users forget to add a
Whatever happened to "Wikipedia, the encyclopedia anyone can edit"?
This is adding a layer of complexity and expectation that I don't really
feel comfortable with. We don't expect people to add images to Commons
when they write an article. We don't expect people to include definitions
This is where I disagree with you, Romaine. I do believe my examples are
exactly right. We do not expect anyone to add information to any other
project when they create content on the project of their choice. We have a
hard enough time recruiting contributors to any of our projects now, and

I am 100% sure that such feature is optional: users must have the option to
deactivate it. The feature will only work if it is an opt-out feature,

If you've had some users requesting such a feature, could it perhaps be
added as an opt-in preference setting? I'd be very annoyed by such a
feature if it couldn't be disabled, and many might just be confused by it.

If you want to add a new image to Wikipedia, this image has to be on

If interwikilinks should be seen in the sidebar, the article needs to be

I am going to suggest something, but I have no idea of the development that

Currently Visual Editor has Template forms. If Template data that has been
