Structured Data on Commons and Wiki Loves... campaigns: wishes for UploadWizard?[edit]

(Apologies for cross-posting.) Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons (SDC) will become available in 2019. With SDC, Wikimedians can add data from Wikidata directly to files on Wikimedia Commons.

Benefits include multilinguality of Commons files (users can find and describe files on Commons in many languages), and machine-readable data with better APIs, that offer more advanced possibilities to build applications like Monumental.

In the not so far future, you will also be able to organize Wiki Loves... (Monuments, Earth, Africa, Art, Love, ...) campaigns on Wikimedia Commons with structured data. (This is entirely optional, but maybe some of you are already keen to do this, especially if you already have source data for your campaigns in Wikidata!)

In the course of 2019, the SDC development team wants to improve Wikimedia Commons' UploadWizard to support the campaigns that want to be powered by Structured Data 'new style'.

Do you have ideas and wishes for this? The team wants to hear which structured data features you want to see in UploadWizard, and we are now organizing a consultation about this over the next two weeks. This page gives more context, and links to where you can leave feedback. We're collecting this first round of input until April 17, 2019. Many thanks in advance for all your ideas!

World Biosphere Reserves?[edit]

Do UNESCO Biosphere Reserves count toward the 2019 contest? They have in prior years. Oaktree b (talk) 21:05, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

@Oaktree b: They count only if a specific country organises WLE and includes UNESCO Biosphere Reserves (e.g. Biosphere Reserves in Germany count to WLE Germany if they are included to German lists). Unlike previous few years, there will be no separate contest for UNESCO Biosphere Reserves — NickK (talk) 21:21, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

Search Engine optimisation[edit]

Hello. Searching this on Google shows our meta grant request page first. That is...not ideal for public view. How do we fix this? Rehman 04:28, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

Fixed. Added {{NOINDEX}}. Rehman 05:18, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Statistics[edit]

Hi, wtat's wrong with statistics page here? It doesn't work from Friday 31th of May. Meanwhile the competition is still goes on with almost 15 countries and we need the statistics page updating. Please do something about it. -- Екатерина Борисова (talk) 12:58, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

Commons:Jury tools[edit]

Hello. Excuse me if this is a silly question, but how does one sign-up for a tool such as WLX? I've asked on the creator's talkpage (20 May) and also on the tool's talkpage (22 May), but there is no response till now. Kind regards, Rehman 05:21, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

@Rehman: Sorry for the delay. Just created an account in the jury tool for you; you should have received your password by email (be sure to check Spam folder). Documentation can be found at Commons:WLX Jury Tool & Commons:WLX Jury Tool/AdminUI (we will try to expand it; in the meanwhile, feel free to email the int team if you have questions).
Overall, there is no particular page to sign up. Leaving a message on the talk page will work, though the quickest way is emailing the international team at wle-team@wikimedia.org.ua --AntonProtsiuk (WMUA) (talk) 15:43, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, AntonProtsiuk. I've got the email, and will do the needful from there. Cheers, Rehman 02:45, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
