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 in the extrapolations made by the
script (like pictures identified as linked to that item). In that case
it is pretty obvious that the data is still unusable, but what if the
3-5-10 articles I check are OK? Are there any guidelines on that?

Thanks,
   Strainu
