User story: As a user searching for information in my language I want to get basic information about a topic even if my Wikipedia doesn't have an article about it yet. I want to see a placeholder based on data from Wikidata. I want the option to create an article based on this data easily.
Community input: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Article_placeholder_input
Important things to keep in mind:
- Wikidata does not aim to replace article writing. The development team has no ambition to try to have Wikidata write articles about complex topics that need more than just data to be fully understood.
- We do want to give people access to information in their language to the best of our abilities.
- Wikipedias and co will need to have a way to opt out.
- This feature is especially important/valuable for small projects with a small contributor base.
