Document how community members and partners can make use of BotMultichillT's P4765 workflow to upload images to Wikimedia Commons
Open, MediumPublic

Description

@Multichill has figured out a nice workflow / method to directly upload images to Wikimedia Commons based on Wikidata items, using the Commons compatible image available at URL Wikidata property. See https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:ListFiles/BotMultichillT

If reliable enough (i.e. @Multichill's bot operates relatively autonomously and does not need his personal intervention/activation/reboot for most of the time), it's a good idea to document the exact conditions under which this process will work, so that it can become an actually quite easy upload workflow (including StructuredDataOnCommons) that can be used by many partners and community members.

@SandraF_WMF will then include this documentation in the general SDC-GLAM documentation portal.

  • For what instances of Wikidata items does this work? Only for paintings, or also for other two-dimensional works (I'd be happiest if it were the latter, hehe)?
  • What are the other conditions to trigger the upload? Creator has a death date before a certain date + the work has a creation date before a certain date?
  • URL pointing to the image needs to point to the exact image location, not the webpage
  • How frequently does the bot run, i.e. how long should people be expected to wait before the upload has happened?
  • What should folks do when they notice the upload has not happened after ... days?
  • Other conditions and points of attention to mention?
