#Bots to the rescue

In #Wikidata, any item that does not have a label is of questionable value. According to the statistics, at the beginning of the year there were some 114,000 items without a label.

It is not a real problem as the name of an article can be used for a label. The most recent Wikidata statistics prove what bots can do. Currently there are some 9,000 items left without any label.

Some items have multiple links to Wikipedias and some of these links are without a label. These have also been updated. They are the real winners because these items are more likely to have statements. This is where all this effort truly adds value.
