Community Wishlist Survey/arz
The Community Wishlist Survey is an annual survey run by the Wikimedia Foundation's Community Tech team. The Community Tech team is focused on meeting the needs of active Wikimedia editors for improved, expert-focused curation and moderation tools. The creation of the Community Tech team is a direct outcome of requests from core contributors for improved support for moderation tools, bots, and the other features that help the Wikimedia projects succeed.
In November, 2015, Community Tech conducted the first cross-project Community Wishlist Survey, to help identify the features and fixes that are most important to Wikimedia editors. We invited contributors from all Wikimedia projects to submit proposals for the Community Tech team. After two weeks of collecting proposals, we asked them to vote on the proposals they were most interested in. The process has been repeated every year since.

October 19, 2021: Declining the Bibliographic Bot Wish
Wish Title: Bibliographic Bot
Wish Rank: #14
Reason Summary: Scope of work too large, not enough votes.
We have decided to decline this project. We did this after careful consideration and multiple rounds of feedback within the team and conversations with other teams at WMF and affiliates.
Rationale: First, the engineers and designers investigated the scope of work defined in the problem statement of the wish (T243150). We have determined that the work alone far exceeds our initial estimation of it.
This wish scored very high in our prioritization process because at a glance, it seemed straightforward to duplicate the Citoid behavior inside of Wikidata. We assumed that it involved a low complexity from a technical and design perspective because we could reuse the code and designs. However, citations in Wikidata must be linked as references to other objects in the database. This significantly increases the complexity.
This wish did not score the top 10 most popular wishes. It came in at #14. We were wrong about the initial estimation. In fact the work for this wish was worked on by Wikidata/Wikimedia Deutschland for multiple months. The final solution was too complex to complete given the resources available at the time. This would take the Community Tech team multiple months to complete, and there are other wishes that were more popular that we will work on instead.
August 20, 2021: The 2022 Community Wishlist Survey will happen in January
We will be running the Community Wishlist Survey 2022 in January 2022. We need more time to work on the 2021 wishes. We also need time to prepare some changes to the Wishlist 2022. In the meantime, you can use a dedicated sandbox to leave early ideas for the 2022 wishes. القرايه
