@SVentura and @Qgil have been discussing about the convenience of having subpages under https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Wiki_Loves_Open_Data for organizations that plan to contribute to Wikidata on a continuous basis, complex projects, etc. Think of Europeana, World Bank, OECD...
Main objectives of these pages:
- Document ongoing activities and future plans, allowing people interested to follow specifically an organization.
- Provide to the organizations a single point of contact with the community to receive questions and feedback (hopefully with Flow enabled discussion pages, for easier adoption).
We will still encourage organizations to have someone subscribing to the Wikidata mailing list and getting involved in other ways, but these pages could fulfill quickly the minimum requirements of community involvement.
Anyone can create a wiki page... However, from the point of view of Wiki Loves Open Data we will encourage the creation of pages only for those organizations fitting in the definition of the open data we want and committing to have at least one person monitoring the page, updating it and responding to feedback.
We need a basic structure for these pages. Something like
- Description of the organization and their datasets.
- (Link to) Instructions to access to their open data.
- Intent and plans of their contribution to Wikimedia.
- Description of content provided already available in Wikimedia
- Contact persons and other contributors involved / interested.
