Use of {Wikidata Infobox}[edit]

Hello Mike Peel. I understand that you are heavily involved in this {{Wikidata Infobox}}-template. But is it for uses on category-pages or at gallery pages, and are there a need to create a small gallerypage for the probably best use of it, or should we wait until we have some more things to fill in on the gallery-pages before we create them.

The reason I ask is this little edit-war I recently had on the subject of the new speed skating world champion from Japan Miho Takagi (gallery page, edit-history), Category:Miho Takagi (edit-history) and wikidata items edit-history for Wikidata-person Miho Takagi (Q444421) and edit-history for Wikidata-category Category:Miho Takagi (Q50739509).

@Migrant: The template is primarily designed to be used on categories, but it should also work OK on gallery pages. Personally, I prefer categories to galleries, since galleries are often unmaintained and stale, while categories are generally more used. But in the case where both a gallery and a category are wanted, then you can have both an topic item and a category item on Wikidata, and then have commons sitelinks to both gallery and category. You can also then use the infobox on both (just make sure you set category's main topic (P301) in the category item to point to the topic item, and the template will use that to display the topic info rather than the category info). However, that's normally done for the wider topics, where categories also exist on Wikipedia, rather than a narrow topic like this - and see this ongoing Wikidata notability discussion. So I wouldn't include consideration of the infobox in the decision of whether a gallery is useful to have or not. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 13:17, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. I just linked the discussion over to my small edit-war colleague talk page. Best regards Migrant (talk) 13:53, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
