If I am on a Wikidata item page (QXXXXX), what's the easiest way to
navigate to the Wikipedia links other than manual scrolling? Sometimes
(actually a lot of times) I need to check Wikipedia articles (not only
English) before I add description part. Is there any user script or
something that puts Wikipedia links above statement or any other suggestion?
Note: If I don't reply to your email in 2 days, please feel free to remind
me over email or phone call.

Dear Wikidata community,
YAGO is a large general-purpose knowledge base derived from Wikipedia
and other sources. It contains more than 10 million entities (like
persons, organizations, cities, etc.) and more than 120 million
facts about these entities. It also contains time and space information,
and unifies data from Wikipedias in 11 languages. YAGO is available for
free at https://yago-knowledge.org
We are happy to announce that the source code of YAGO is now available
as well as open source under the GPL v3 license. This allows everybody
to use the extraction code, and also to contribute to YAGO.
Please find the GitHub link here: https://github.com/yago-naga/yago3
We are very grateful for the work of the Wikimedia community (including
Wikipedia and Wikidata), and we hope that our project can be of use.

I wanted to make you aware of our new paper "Doctoral Advisor or Medical
Condition: Towards Entity-specific Rankings of Knowledge Base Properties",
which deals with the problem of determining the interestingness of Wikidata
properties for individual entities.
In the paper we develop a dataset of 350 random (entity, property1,
property2) records, and use human judgments to determine the more
interesting property in each record.
We then show that state-of-the-art techniques (Wikidata Property Suggestor,
Google search) achieve 61% precision on predicting the winner in
high-agreement records, which can be lifted to 74% by using linguistic
similarity, but remains still significantly below human performance (87.5%

I just wanted to ask since when this limit has been in effect. We are
analyzing the logs for the SPARQL endpoint and are seeing quite a change
in the spread of the workload across the month, but it seems to start as
early as the end of may.
