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.

As quick reply I would say don't shoot the messenger :-). If Recoin finds that some of the most important Indonesian national heroes are less well documented than some minor league Baseball players then....that is firstly food for thought.

I agree though that labels like "basic information" and red symbols can create an unintended negative perception, but I have no idea how to do it differently (albeit from lowering the thresholds). It could indeed be that many of the red items are already very useful as they are, yet, who could decide this and create necessary annotations? Thus the idea of Recoin is to show a *relative* completeness/informativeness based on how much is known about other, similar entities.

An expandable list of things to improve should be loaded directly below the page title (unless it is pushed down by other plugins/scripts)?

Thanks for the interesting analysis! Yes, there should be some positive correlation, yet the way we compute the indicator (look at avg frequency of top 5 missing properties) it is much more important that the frequent properties are there, than that many are there in general. This is not scientifically grounded though (I am not aware of any scientific work discussing how one should compute such indicators), so what we compute is a simple heuristic, and we are glad for any suggestions for different computation.
