@Halfak (WMF): please share your thoughts. EllenCT (talk) 03:06, 21 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi EllenCT. It's not very clear to me what is being proposed. Are we looking to back up infobox data values with citations from Wikidata? Or maybe you're thinking of going the other direction -- converting citations that appear in infoboxes to sources for wikidata claims. Either way, it seems possible to do this in either direction. However, I think that we'll need a good proposal for how we'll make it both flexible and powerful. Right now, it sounds like we'll sprinkle some NLP magic and hope for the best. :) --Halfak (WMF) (talk) 15:40, 25 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Halfak (WMF): I agree it would be easier to start with looking for sources in infoboxes and adding them to wikidata claims, instead of looking for the references in the prose section which might support either infobox entries or wikidata claims. Please make a new proposal for the easier idea first. EllenCT (talk) 16:02, 25 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think it's already covered in an already accepted and ongoing IEG: Grants:IEG/StrepHit: Wikidata Statements Validation via References Amir (talk) 23:33, 27 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

April 12 Proposal Deadline: Is your project ready for funding?[edit]

The deadline for Individual Engagement Grant (IEG) submissions this round is April 12th, 2016. If you’ve developed your idea into a project that would benefit from funding, consider applying!

To apply, you must (1) create a draft request using the “Expand into an Individual Engagement Grant” button on your idea page, (2) complete the proposal entirely, filling in all empty fields, and (3) change the status from "draft" to "proposed." As soon as you’re ready, you should begin to invite any communities affected by your project to provide feedback on your proposal talk page.

If you have any questions about IEG or would like support in developing your proposal, we're hosting a few proposal help sessions this month in Google Hangouts:

I'm also happy to set up an individual session. With thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) 00:38, 2 April 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
