Generate regularly the list of unprotected and very used Wikidata Items
Closed, DeclinedPublic


As an admin I want the list of unprotected and very used Wikidata Items to be regularly generated in order to semi-protect these Items and comply with Wikidata:Requests for comment/semi-protection to prevent vandalism on most used Items.





Acceptance criteria:

  • The list L of QIDs of Wikidata entities E is generated each time T with a structure S.
  • E are all the unprotected Wikidata Items whose data is used by 500 Wikimedia pages or more.
  • T corresponds to a well-known and technically acceptable frequency.
  • T equals or exceeds the approximate frequency with which a significant number of Items outside E become part of E.
  • S is just one QID per line, each of which is separated by a Unix-style line break.
  • L is not in any particular order.
  • L is available from Wikimedia Toolforge to the bot that will regularly semi-protect E.
  • L is not publicly available.

Open questions:

  • What T is convenient and feasible?
  • Is a stability criterion necessary? E.g., an Item I in E is only listed in L if it was already in E in the previous run.

We have a regularly generated list in CSV format that will meet this objective. :D
