The recent not very satisfactory situation that limits people in their
query use is a case in point. It was stated that some people are "abusing"
the system and as a consequence limits have been applied to everyone. When
asked there is no answer to the question how the expected increase in use
is to be met. Exponential growth on a service that is still very new is to
be expected after all.
Another issue is with the lack of English Wikipedia to keep up with the
changes at Wikidata. Again limits on the edits have been applied but there
is no plan on how this is be met in a structured way.
Wikidata is developed to meet new challenges but the quality of the user
interface is abysmal. It is because of Reasonator that Wikidata is more or
less useful on an item level.
Wikidata is seen as subservient to other interests and it shows.
