Please keep as is[edit]

  • Michael Hale (Wakebrdkid (talk) 20:46, 29 March 2013 (UTC)) They've certainly helped me get caught up on the project.
  • They're fairly thorough...no need to change.Smallman12q (talk) 22:46, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

  • It's helping me a lot in understanding the evolution of wikidata. --Ysogo (talk) 07:36, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Keep up the good work. --Tommyang (talk) 17:59, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
  • I regularly read the version that is distributed by EdwardsBot - without this newsletter, I would hardly know about upcoming changes. --UV (talk) 20:27, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks folks :) I'll see what we can do to keep it. --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 14:44, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Please change something[edit]

  • I strongly appreciate how thorough and consistent the status updates are, especially the notices of upcoming events, the links to press and discussions, and the ways volunteers can help. I mildly suggest a "the three most important things" bulleted summary at the top, a switch to a twice-monthly schedule to save you time (if that saves you time), and perhaps greater publicity for this status update via the weekly onwiki news organs. Thank you for your updates and for your work on Wikidata and for the Wikimedia movement. Sharihareswara (WMF) (talk) 13:27, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

I have not got to grips with Wikidata at all yet, so to some extent I have no opinion on the content, but as I fight for my basic wiki-rights on en: I am always, when the newsletter arrives, pleased to see that progress is being made by people that take data, internationalization, and verifiability more seriously than drama.

Aw thank you! We're doing our best :) --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 00:01, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Phase 3[edit]

Apologize if I'm commenting in the wrong section. I'm interested in helping phase 3 development. How can I help? Bennylin 16:11, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Cool. Do you have anything specific in mind that you want to do? Anything specific you're good at? That'd help me figure out where you could help best. --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 14:43, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
I only read about list, and that got me hooked. Probably this has been discussed in Wikidata website, but it's hard to keep track a wiki that have 8 million+ data and multiple parallel discussions. Probably you can pinpoint me to the centralized Phase 3 discussion? Bennylin 18:52, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for not answering earlier. This slipped through the cracks. So far there is Wikidata/Queries and some code. Have you already had a look at that? --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 16:33, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
