- Wikimania happened recently with a variety of online and physical events. We might share our personal experiences and links to useful resources. For example, here's the slides for a talk Wikidata for Wizards, presented by Navino Evans and Simon Cobb at the Newspeak House event. Andrew D. (talk) 09:26, 18 August 2022 (UTC)
- I had a little play with wikidata concerning handling the height of a footballer and the accuracy on English Wikipedia was disputed on UK national television. I have also had a little play with SPARQL attempting to get the architect/architectural-style associated with railway stations in Ireland, but mainly had to load the information for a couple of stations myself.
