Using Wikipedia films and film makers red links to seed Wikidata

Type of session:


Session theme(s):

Open Data, Reliable Sources


Many editors may not have the time and inclination to create full-fledged articles out of a Wikipedia red link. However, it is easy to create a Wikidata item and collect facts about the film or film maker. Additionally, Wikidata may already have the existing item and perhaps even links to other languages. Wikipedia editors may then link to these by using the {{ill}} template.

Wikidata editors may wish to enable Recoin at Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets.
