[Wikimedia-l] Status Botgeneration of articles on sv:wp

LsjBot has now finished generating articles of all animals and insects.
it become close to 1 M. The articles are fine [1] and represent
increased knowledge, but have problably only have had a limited effect
on access to and edits on sv:wp. Sverker will after a pause continue
with all plants (a few 100 thousands) and then plan to put all data in
Wikidata

NaskoBot is now 95% ready generating articles on all Swedish lakes,
50.000 (whereof a third not even having a name..) [2]. These articles
are seen as very sound and really better then the ones manually created.
Here we see these have generated an increased participation and edits as
people now can get a proper links to all lakes in other geographic
articles, and it is easy to complement the generated lake articles with
local info and photos. We know these article generate "new" accesses,
but it is still too early to know how many and how it will effect
earlier webbsites with some of this info

Our next initiative we are working with is to get all data of Swedish
communes, cities and towns 100 % correct in Wikidata (and also a
semiautomatic update link to Wikidata from the Swedish statistical
authorities databases). We thought our articles on these subjects were
fine, but find we need to put in 6-9 month time to get the data from
fine to 100% correct, and all the relevant data elements in place in
Wikidata even if it only a few thousand articles . When we are ready we
will have all the base data for these entities taken from Wikidata (not
giving much improvement) but more important we will be able to provide
100% quality data for other language versions to semiautomatic get data
(or generate articles) of these subjects, where we feel a special
responsibility to secure global quality for.

We are familiar with the impressive work Cheersbot has done on vi:wp (a
few hundred thousand article generated, on plants, geographical
entities) and of course some knowledge of the work on nl:wp (several
hundred thousands of articles generated), they were the one who inspired
us. But we are missing insight from initiatives on other language versions.

Are there other experiences that can be shared or is there a metapage or
does it exist a maillist more dedicated to discuss these issues? (it is
close to wikidata issues but it is not about the technicaliites of
Wikidata hut more about how to implement use of basic data that involves
special challenges outside of the wikidata technique)

Nice work on sv:, congrats! Your post contains some interesting stuff for
me. I'm searching info about other bots currently creating stubs. I hope to
compile all that info in a user subpage.

Try one of these:
* https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mass_content_adding (inactive)
* https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Botopedia (inactive)
* https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Project_chat (may have a
forum for this, unsure)
Either of the first two might actually be good to revive, and add
lessons learned to.
