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.

Hi Simon,

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 completeness score:
     > Sukarno with triple count of 67 got "basic information"
     > 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 of information"

Any thoughts on this?

Dear community,

We are happy to announce version 2 of Recoin, the relative completeness status indicator. Recoin adds a color-coded progress bar to entity pages showing how extensive information about the entity is in comparison with similar entities.

In the new version, Recoin is rolled out to virtually all entities in Wikidata (see e.g. Q173634, Q565400 or Q15074414 ). 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. Also, if you support making a gadget out of please get in contact with us.

More information can be found on the tools page at https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Ls1g/Recoin2.
