Women in Red members have uploaded thousands of portrait photos of notable women into Commons without also creating a Wikidata item for them. If this could be automated, there is the potential for thousands of additional names of missing notable women to appear on the Women in Red redlists. Conversely, some of the portrait photos uploaded to Commons years ago are for women who now have a Wikipedia article, but the editor didn't check Commons after they created the Wikipedia article. If the Commons image is linked to a Wikidata item, and the Wikidata item is linked to the Wikipedia article, how can we close the loop with getting the portrait photo into the Wikipedia article?

This interests me a lot and I'd like to stay in the loop with conversations. Thanks.

@ArielGlenn - Reflecting on what you've said, the 1st and the 20th are fine for Women in Red. Thanks for what you do. We appreciate it.

@ArielGlenn Am I understanding correctly that the xm/sql dumps run only on the 1st of the month and the 20th of the month, but not on other days (e.g. 15th)?
Why 1st and 20th of each month, rather than more equally-spaced, e.g. 1st and 15th, or 7th and 21st?

@ArielGlenn The proposed change from every other Monday to the 1st and 15th of each month will be fine for Women in Red . What's important for us is that the update is often enough (e.g. twice per month is fine) and that it's available on the day when it's expected to update. If/When this change is finalized, please email me as I don't keep an eye on Phabricator. Thanks. cc: @notconfusing

DarTar, thanks for inviting me to take a look at this proposal. I actually saw it in action at the IWD2015 event at Kadist. Parker (at least I think it was Parker) told us about the hashtag campaign, and we were using it in every Edit Summary. It was cool to hear all the "pings" whenever someone clicked Save. Aside from that "coolness" factor, I think it's a GREAT idea. Women in Red has run 6 event campaigns/editathons since launching July 2015 and will be running at least one per month in 2016. These are virtual editathons over many days sometimes with and sometimes without a sponsoring GLAM org which is simultaneously hosing in-person event(s). An auto-populated hashtage would certainly help us with our event's Outcomes list (metrics).
