Write a Wikimedia Space blog post about structured data in Wiki Loves... campaigns
Closed, DeclinedPublic


In October-November 2019, I (@SandraF_WMF) plan to publish a blog post on Wikimedia Space about running Wiki Loves... style campaigns using StructuredDataOnCommons

  • Probably an interview with volunteers who recently ran such a campaign
  • Why did we work on this pilot project? What questions did we address?
  • What are next steps?
  • How can you help?

As planned in T213721: Support SDC pilots rollout for 2019.

@SandraF_WMF Sounds good. If you plan to publish in Sept, could you please coordinate with the WLM team, just to make sure participants don't get confused? Especially because of the fact that they will see an upload interface that had most of the structured data disabled (as per T230767 ). Even in the context there may be enough to talk about though, just want to make sure it doesn't confuse people.

@Effeietsanders I hope to publish this blog post no earlier than October-November, but that is indeed pending on whether one or more of this year's Wiki Loves Monuments national campaigns has/have done something with StructuredDataOnCommons. Changing status to Stalled for now, while I wait what will happen on this front :-)

I welcome suggestions for people who would like to be interviewed about this by the way!

WLM ended up not using StructuredDataOnCommons in its 2019 campaign, because of various reasons (including that the structured data addition in the UploadWizard interface made the upload process too complex for newcomers). Therefore this blog post will not be written. However, other types of campaigns with structured data, for instance using the ISA tool, will be discussed in other blog posts.
