Hello Lea. I write to you as I see that you have a significant part in the project Wikidata Bridge. I do not now in what discussion page in the project to put these questions, so I write to you directly.
I contribute on Wikipedia in Norwegian and have done so for more than 12 years. My interest lays in writing articles and not so much I am afraid, in using Wikidata.
I am visiting your users page to ask you whether Wikidatas total interface is part of the scope of Wikidata Bridge. Or is this only project on making a bridge between Wikipedia and Wikidata. Please let me explain why I put the question to you.
The implementation of Wikidata in infoboxes is at present a hot, not to say exhausting theme in Tinget and Torget at wpno. There is an ongoing ballot if the references should be totally removed from the information boxes. You might be able to read the discussions by using a translation programme, but do not try to read it all. Life is not long enough.
There are of course as many nuances in discussions as participants. However, in my judgement a very important reason for rejecting WD is the users feeling of loosing control. Those who are familiar with Wikidata, does not feel that control is lost, but if WD is strange to you, that feeling might occur. You have of course heard that before.
To explain my position, I write in Visual Editor as much as I can. I have not posted very many pictures in commons, but I did more of that after a significant change in the interface took place. The interface in Wikidata strikes me as difficult to understand.
Even the discussions contain a lot of P’s and Q’s technical words that is never used in the same way in ordinary articles! The pages have names that I am not used to in plain Norwegian. The choosing of words favours a technical language, perhaps that of the computer science. I am not quite sure, I am a lawyer myself, and we have occasionally problems using a simple language too!
In the actual case we have a problem that the references from the boxes occurs like a url-line. Without a text in ordinary language the reader cannot understand by just reading what the source is. But even when it occurs together with ordinary words, it is ugly!
Wikipedias lack of diplomacy shows itself in all its ugliness in the discussion, as you might imagine. Some users feel that their work in establishing Wikidata and connecting it with Wikipedia is threatened, others and to some extent myself, feel estranged, alienated.
Well, all this to explain the reasons for my simple question about the scope of your project. But perhaps also to report a concern of a long-lasting conflict between the WD’s and the WP’s in the future. It might be possible to overcome with a simpler interface in WD.
Thank you and have a nice day.
