Community Wishlist Survey 2021/Wikidata/Show the ORES score of the linked Wikipedia page

Show the ORES score of the linked Wikipedia page

  • Problem : The ORES quality score of a Wikipedia page is not visible, nor available in Wikidata or Wikidata Query.
  • Who would benefit : Moderators, editors, volunteers, spam fighters, all people maintaining or ameliorating Wikipedia pages, all readers
  • Proposed solution : Show the ORES score in the Wikidata Wikipedia list of pages. The reader could immediately have an impression of the quality of the article in the different languages.The value could also be made available via Wikidata Query. In that case a query could be run for good/bad/mediocre articles, related to a certain domain, instance, or subclass to be able to identify good/bad articles and to ameliorate them. That list could then be used by any tool being able to work with item Q-numbers.

  • Question: how are these scores generated and where are they kept? I find it hard to imagine that there are millions of stored numbers, one for every article on every Wiki, and somehow I have not heard of it. Abductive (talk) 11:34, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
    See more at ORES. Geert Van Pamel (WMBE) (talk) 16:25, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
    As I read the description of ORES it is a score for page edits. I see no mention of an ORES score for articles. So I don't understand what is proposed. --Dipsacus fullonum (talk) 14:08, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
    No, there is also models for full article texts in example for enwiki (mw:ORES#Article_quality). --Zache (talk) 06:28, 13 December 2020 (UTC)

  •   Support Yes. I create worklists for Wikipedia articles and currently have an onerous workflow querying the API through OpenRefine to get page assessment, parsing it, then pasting the table back into user space. It would be so much better if there was a way to access the Wikipedia page ORES score (not Wikidata ORES score) through Wikidata so I can just extract it with Listeriabot.

  •   Support Being able to query Wikipedia articles for their ORES scores would be very useful when organising projects and editing events. Giantflightlessbirds (talk) 03:51, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
