Hi Brill,

Great you like the idea! Regarding speed, unfortunately the current delay is unavoidable when the indicator is based on live data. There appears to be a conflict between being up-to-date (-> live computation) and being fast (-> precomputation), we'll look whether there is a way to have fast, maybe via triggers on changes.

Hi Simon,

I installed Recoin and really like the idea of this indicator. I think it's very useful. Unfortunately, I am seeing a real delay in the indicator populating, with a significant delay of the full page browser refresh. Is that something that can be improved?

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.

Best regards,
