Abstract
Length of presentation
Wikidata-driven infoboxes have the potential to instantly update nearly 300 different language Wikipedias with language-neutral metadata and images. This presentation will discuss how to use these infoboxes on the English Wikipedia, the success with which these infoboxes have been employed on smaller language Wikipedias like Basque and Catalan, and the resistance they have received from established editors on the English Wikipedia.
