#Wikidata - About #lists, page views and #language support

I positively hate lists. They should have only two statements one should indicate that it is a list and the other should indicate what the list is about. The problem is that many Wikipedias think a list is a substitute for the real thing.

When you look at the statistics for the Reasonator, you will find that there is no interest to see the information it provides in Arabic. So far there have been only 24 page views ... How to double this and double it again, how to find an audience for information presented in Arabic.

One way is to have information that they might like, this is why I did some work on the kings of Saudi Arabia. However, it then shows that the timeline screws up in that the buttons for right and left overlap. It is open source and a solution is welcome.
