Show Interlanguage links on some pages automaticallyEdit

  • Problem: Sometimes, the user needs a copy (in another language) of a page (like talk pages of d:Q11214943) but this page is not important according to d:Wikidata:Notability
  • Who would benefit: All
  • Proposed solution: Show Interlanguage links on these pages automatically:talk pages (Depending on the original page item), mediaWiki pages, userpages, creator pages (depending on d:Property:P1472), and special pages
  • More comments:

@C933103:No, but make them appear automatically --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 08:45, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
So how?C933103 (talk) 20:57, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Wouldn't it be better to change the notability standards of Wikifata then? Personally I would say that we should abolish the notability standards as it leads to conflicts like the above, but I don't see why local linsks 🔗would solve this issue. --Donald Trung (Talk 🤳🏻) (My global lock 🔒) (My global unlock 🔓) 13:14, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

Perhaps this is slightly different, but I often want to read the same searchword pages in other languages, as content differs between Swedish, German and English articles on the same topic. Wich is fine, as for example historical persons, are relevant in different ways depending on your national / cultural viewpoint. But if you have the language skill, reading articles in other languages, often broadens your outlook on things. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bertiloman (talk) 09:43, 10 December 2017 (UTC)

  •   Support User pages with Cognate, Creator/Institution with metadata. (I’m in doubt whether it makes sense on MediaWiki and talk pages, but if it’s enabled on them, MediaWiki should also work with Cognate.) Tacsipacsi (talk) 20:03, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
