Submissions talk:2021/Non-English Editions of Wikipedia Have a Misinformation Problem
Appreciation for the first submission
This is our first real, non-test submission for this year's conference!
What is your insight?
YumikoSato You say that you can speak to Japanese Wikipedia, and also make comparison with Croatian language Wikipedia.
I checked Japanese language Wikipedia ja:user:YumikoSato and do not see you registered there. Can you add a sentence explaining how you know about Japanese language Wikipedia, or evaluated it, or experienced it? Do you know Japanese language?
- Hey Lane, Yumiko is bona fide. She is a journalist who has written about this for Slate. She'll be good to have at the conference. (Just realised it's been six years since I was with y'all in Washington DC ... time flies!) Best, --Jayen466 (talk) 17:18, 9 October 2021 (UTC)
- See my reply to Lane above. For Croatian Wikipedia, see also the WMF's own report here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Croatian_Wikipedia_Disinformation_Assessment-2021 – it's very much been a real and long-standing issue. I don't think the title is meant to imply that ALL non-English Wikipedias have such a problem, only that some do ... which is undoubtedly true. That's why the WMF has started a Disinformation department looking at these issues. --Jayen466 (talk) 17:27, 9 October 2021 (UTC)
