Cognate dashboard requests tracking
Open, Needs TriagePublic


This is the main task to track all the feature requests for the Wiktionary Cognate dashboard.

This dashboard have been developed based on a community request in 2018, it has been brought to a stable version in August 2018. The current version will run for now, be maintained and updated. The new feature requests have to be analyzed and prioritized before considering adding them to the roadmap.

If you want a new feature to be added to the dashboard, if you notice a bug or have suggestions for improvement, please create a subtask of this one.

@Lydia_Pintscher and @Lea_Lacroix_WMDE will keep track of the requests, discussions, and prioritize the tasks regarding if they are: urgent, useful for the broad Wiktionary communities, feasible with the current resources of the Wikidata team.

Please expose scaling coefficients on task ranking.
 You can sort a task list using graph network methods with or without geometric embeddings of those graphs, and not just in a small number of dimensions. Every semantic distinction like one/many, male/female, food/nonfood, frequency of occurrence, etc, are all potential dimensions to use to find the most important missing pieces. When you do, how do you scale the relative numeric values of the dimensions?

Please allow us to see the numeric scaling functions in task sorting views.

P.S. @GoranSMilovanovic, Please post the Wikimedia DE links for inter-project Wikipedia completeness. I copied them to the chat at the WikiEdu meeting half an hour ago, but forgot to save them. Do they have a multi-language version of ? It looks like is one, as per

I want to scale task lists whether the sort order determinants are categories or numeric values, but I'm not exactly sure how to do it when the sort order has only one determinant as in but I think this is easily doable with the multiple numeric determinants at assuming -- and this is a big assumption -- that the rows and columns are comprehensible to users who might adjust what starts as a list of [ 1.0] text fields. (Or are they more like [ +0.0] ? )

Removing task assignee due to inactivity, as this open task has been assigned to the same person for more than two years (see the emails sent to the task assignee on Oct27 and Nov23). Please assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically [plan to] work on this task - it would be welcome.

The requests presented in T202610#5535326 and T202610#5535427 are unclear.
Please define the requests in a clear and concise language (I am discouraging the use of mathematical or technical language, but it must be made understandable and refer directly to the data products offered at the Wiktionary Cognate dashboard), and then we can consider them.
