Visibility for quality issues
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

At Wikidata several reports have been produced that are about quality issues at Wikipedia. They can be anything from likely incorrect data vis a vis Wikidata, missing data or reports on the demise of people. Such lists do not get attention and consequently at Wikidata people indicate that they are not willing to consider the quality of any Wikipedia. Wikipedia is considered a black box and it is not interested in its own quality.

With proper visibility for such reports we may get cooperation going. It will enhance quality in any and all of our projects. There are three things needed:

  • a platform on every Wikidata linked wiki for such issues
  • a mechanism to regularly update the list
  • a workflow for each issue
