In my book having this list of the national heroes of Indonesia is already
a remarkable achievement. Lists like it are often missing and, at that I am
also to blame because I mostly import from the English Wikipedia making the
dominance of English cultural interest even more entrenched. At the time I
added the statements for Indonesian national heroes. I imported the
information from English Wikipedia.
This tool has its attractions but it does entrench cultural dominance even
further as it stamps "quality" on items. The items with the most statements
are the ones that are most likely to get good grades. Items from Indonesia
let alone countries like Cameroon or the Gambia are easily substandard.
I have spend a lot of time adding information about rajas and other Asian
nobility in Wikidata. Many if not most of these lists are missing links for
entries to the list to Wikipedia articles in any language. What I notice is
that slowly but surely they do gain articles, articles not necessarily in
English. For me they are the true quality items because they show what we
do not really know, what we do not know but what is extremely notable.

thanks for the tool!
I was wondering: is there any correlation between the number of triples
for an entity with the entity's Recoin completeness indicator? I imagine
that the correlation is positive. I conducted a little test over the data
of Indonesian national heroes (http://tinyurl.com/ybrdjpbt
), and found
the following observations:
- The five entities with the least number of triples all have the worst
completeness score "very basic information"
- The five entities with the most number of triples have got mixed
Sukarno with triple count of 67 got "basic
Moh. Hatta with triple count of 41 got "fair amount of information"
Adam Malik with triple count of 39 got "fair amount of information"
Sutan Sjahrir with triple count of 36 got "basic information"
Ernest Douwes Dekker with triple count of 35 got "basic information"
Interestingly, Ismail Marzuki with triple count of 21 got "fair amount
Any thoughts on this?

We are happy to announce version 2 of Recoin, the relative completeness
status indicator <https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Ls1g/Recoin2>.
Recoin adds a color-coded progress bar to entity pages showing how
extensive information about the entity is in comparison with similar
In the new version, Recoin is rolled out to virtually all entities in
Wikidata (see e.g. Q173634
). The core version uses only Wikibase properties, but based on earlier
feedback there is also a version specifically for ID properties only.
We think Recoin can be of great help for quickly getting impressions of
data quality about entities. We look very much forward to your feedback.
