More Experienced Contributors are interested in specific articles that they watch and edit. MVP of Image Suggestions is to recommend images to them for the articles they are watching or recently edited. The goal is to embed the recommendation in their existing Wikipedia activities, thus increasing the likelihood they will review the recommendations and add selected images as part of their current editing workflow. Based on the information provided in the notification, the user can go through their normal image addition workflow (e.g. choose to open up wikitext and put in the [ ] with the image reference or go through their Visual Editor Insert flow). We will not provide any help with adding the image itself; just the opportunity for the user to review the match.
As an Experienced Contributor, I want to receive a notification if there is an image suggestion for an unillustrated article that I have
... so that I can use it to illustrate those articles.
