Commons search auto-suggest for "files depicting..." should filter out articles
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Since most of the items in Wikidata are now academic articles, many of the suggestions made by the search auto-suggest are also academic articles. This can be very confusing when the titles of academic articles sound like legitimate search terms, such as a person's name or the name of a specific thing:

In the screenshot above, selecting "Jumping spiders of the United States and Canada" gives no results since this is actually an academic article, not a group of spiders.

The auto-suggest feature for "files depicting..." should automatically filter out anything that is an instance of scholarly article or biographical article.
