Create a tool that can import media to Wikimedia Commons from ANY website (after whitelisting)
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Create a tool similar to Flickr2Commons that can import content from any website (which would be helpful with OTRS permissions) and is able to recognise when "a larger image" is available by first clicking on a thumbnail (similar to folders on Flickr).

However this tool should only be able to be used after permission for a website (or specific webpages) has been whitelisted by its maintainers to prevent the import of copyright © violations.

This tool could take away the painstaking tedious task of mass-importing from websites one by one requiring it to be saved locally first before a user can upload it to Wikimedia Commons.
