Jheald added a comment to T278962: do not follow sitelink redirects when redirect badge is used.

Re not removing a badge : note that it may be important for a user or bot to be able to change a badge, in particular from 'sitelink to redirect' (Q70893996) to 'intentional sitelink to redirect' (Q70894304), if the user determines that the redirect is valuable.

A bit more about the use-case. Early next month the external Viae Regiae project, with which Wikidata:WikiProject Early Modern England and Wales is closely co-operating, will start a mass participation effort to transcribe all of the places and placenames on several series of 16th and 17th century maps, like this 1576 Saxton map of Essex on Commons.

Jheald added a comment to T246238: Investigate common qualifiers for “unknown value” statement main snaks.

regarding editors : it looks like some works have multiple editors, none of which have Wikidata items. These ought to be given in separate statements distinguished by "series ordinal".
But it may be that because the statements both have the same 'main value' (or, rather, they both have somevalue for the main value), the software used to add the statements may have coalesced them together. QuickStatements tends to do this, I think.

@Lucas_Werkmeister_WMDE The qualifier "stated as" (p1932) is currently used on 6.6 million statements. I couldn't get a query to complete to count how many of those statements have an object that's a blank node. My guess might be on the order of about 10,000 but that's just a number pulled out of the air, not based on anything. Could be a *lot* more, if this mechanism has been used eg for scientific papers with unmatched editors, publishers, etc.

There is some sense in what MisterSynergy says, but I also think there is sense in what @deryckchan wrote in the RfC (here), namely that there still ought to be some warning if someone tries to sitelink to a redirect page, and the user should be made to actively confirm that they didn't want to instead link to the redirect target. Otherwise I could see us ending up with a lot of accidental sitelinks to mis-spellings, which the present system mostly keeps us safe from.

Jheald added a comment to T235420: Create wikidata badges to indicate when sitelinks point to Wikipedia redirect pages.

Mostly, the existence of a sitelink to a redirect indicates a potential data problem on Wikidata: a sitelink that has been left over when two Wikipedia articles have been merged, but no corresponding merge has been made on Wikidata. A sitelink to a redirect can therefore be a strong indication that an item on Wikidata is a duplicate of another one, and should be merged with it. However, at the moment it is not possible for somebody browsing a Wikidata article to readily spot that a sitelink points to a redirect. A badge to identify this would bring the fact into plain sight.

For discoverability, maintenance, and reuse, it is as important to be able to store metadata for datasets via SDC as it is to be able to store metadata for images.

Jheald renamed T233520: Wikidata changes do not get sent to client sites on initial sitelink addition (in some cases), leading to things such as missing page props in page_props table from page_props missing for some Commons categories to page_props missing links for some Commons category <-> Wikidata sitelinks.

Jheald added a comment to T215073: OSM map layers other than the default should be displayable in the Wikidata Query Service.

On a separate but related issue: we now have quite a lot of images of old maps on Commons, with coordinate georeferencing allowing the maps to be "warped" to standard coordinate systems. It would be nice to be able to serve the warped versions of the maps as tilesets, allowing users to compare different historical representations of given places as layers.

Yeah, this is a problem. I recently had a new Wikidata item (Q66458942) deleted, because the admin wasn't able to see that it was being used as a value in SDC statements on several files, even though he'd checked https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:EntityUsage/Q66458942 (cf discussion on admin's talk page).

Jheald added a comment to T228770: Design a system for serving images with depicts suggestions needing confirmation.

The aim was to try to identify the different generic stages of the workflow in machine vision, and to think how each stage could be made as "pluggable" as possible, so how users could be made able to plug in their own approach at any stage, and report their results from that stage back into the overall pipeline.

Jheald updated subscribers of T228770: Design a system for serving images with depicts suggestions needing confirmation.

So for example this afternoon @Miriam is going to be leading a workshop session introducing image classifiers and clustering algorithms, with a view that Commons users can start to explore writing their own large-scale machine-learning image analysis tools. It would be good if there was syntax in place so they could write the results of those explorations to Commons SDC, for that they were there and accessible for the community to then refine or extract or take further for each image. Similarly two days ago @Multichill led a small group session, to try to think through what was the generic pipeline and workflow for machine-learning contributions, and what kind of open framework was needed to support bulk contributions of that kind from allcomers and any set or subset of images. @Fuzheado too has been talking about some of the investigations he has been doing with machine vision and the Metropolitan Museum collection. All those voices, and more, I think would have useful input for this conversation.

It would be good for unassessed suggestions for statements (and not necessarily just "depicts" statements) to be accessible via the SPARQL query service, in the same way as regular statements, but possibly set with a lower trust level.

By the way, I have a Wikidata property proposal suggested for external georeferencer URL, since a basic thing we will want to record is whether an external service has georeferencing for an image, and if so what the relevant URL is.

I do agree with @Legoktm that it would be nice to have a service where one could record and browse one's own and other people's recent queries -- and perhaps tag them into particular categories of interest.

A core point of this service was to be to able to share long queries. (I'm guessing WDQS now accounts for the majority of organically requested shortenings?)

It would be nice -- and not just for depicts statements -- for there to be an additional rank, beyond "preferred", "normal", and "deprecated", so that statements could be given the rank "suggested by machine, but further confirmation desired".
