Hi Lea, Jan, Gerrard and All,
In terms of "List Generation Input," would it make sense to add a basic
intro tutorial (in video perhaps - is there one even?) about how to create
a new large list in the first place in Wikipedia based on Wikidata /
Wikibase, as well as a possible sandbox for exploring this? (When I google
searched on "starting a long list in Wikipedia," I found this
- "This help page explains how to
create and edit lists on the English Wikipedia," which also doesn't mention
Say, for example, I wanted to create a complete list of all languages in
Wikipedia beginning with Glottolog's CC list here -
- with 7,943 entries in languages
(to create wiki schools for open teaching and learning in those languages
(using WUaS's Subject Template -
), how would I begin
to do this? (WUaS donated CC WUaS to Wikidata last autumn). (Similarly
with all species, beginning with a complete CC list, for example, and in
order to eventually co-develop, for example, an all-species' image
recognition application - hold your smartphone up to any species anywhere,
and identify it - and in any language), how would I begin to add such lists
to Wikipedia with Wikidata?
Shall I add a scenario D to this page -
- with these
Thank you, Scott

On the talk page I have added another.. I have used it frequently and, it
is a list that is updated typically every year. They are awards.

The Wikidata development team is currently working on tools to improve *list
creation on Wikipedia*, based on Wikidata data.
In order to understand what could be useful for you and why, we suggest
you* three examples of user scenarios
which you could recognize some of your current uses: how do you currently
edit some lists on Wikipedia, which tools or processes do you use, and what
can be improved.
You can answer some short questions and add comments on our assumptions
on each related talk page. This input is very important to help us
understand how you edit the lists on Wikipedia, and what tools could be
useful for you.
Thanks to all of you who will take a few minutes to answer our questions!
