St David Awards imagesEdit

The whole of the 'St David Awards' website is OGL, and I would like all the photos on the site to be uploaded to Commons: even the small ones. Full text is included with each photo. I've uploaded one. Thanks. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 18:10, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

@Llywelyn2000: Perhaps I'm wrong but this seems like the place for Commons:Batch uploading. ~riley (talk) 10:57, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Geo referencingEdit

To whom it may concern: Several files with EXIF-based geo data have been uploaded by myself in a time span of one month but the location was not formatted (example). I guess the bot is in beauty sleep mode? Could his master wake him up please? --Mattes (talk) 17:31, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Need a bot to add "Wikidata" parameter to templates in Category:Multilingual tags: Locations by countryEdit

Category:Multilingual tags: Locations by country has ~1300 templates like {{Paris}} which just translate work "Paris" and provide link to wikipedia article in users language. That functionality could be replaced with a call to {{Label}} template which takes wikidata q-code and pulls the same information from wikidata. It is time to stop maintaining those giant templates and replace them with calls to label. A bot to do the job would follow one of the links to wikipedia article, capture the wikicode and do replacement like this one. --Jarekt (talk) 02:41, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

@Jarekt: is the replacement safe (i.e. wikidata version == commons version or commons version doesn't exist; not otherwise)? --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 06:13, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
All those templates were being created based on interwiki links in the wikipedia articles, and since wikidata started we were not able to easily create or even update them. Commons version should correspond to what wikidata was several years back. --Jarekt (talk) 11:57, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
Ok  Doing… --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 12:50, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

@Jarekt: it should be linked to {{City}} one way or the other. I think it would make more sense to have {{Paris}} -> {{city|Paris}} rather than {{City|Paris}} -> {{Paris}}, notably because that way we can easily add new parameters, like |lang= or |sitelink=. --Zolo (talk) 12:25, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Zolo I was thinking that once Zhuyifei1999's bot is done, I will harvest all the place names, and matching q-codes and rewrite {{city}} to directly pull the data from wikidata, bypassing templates like {{Paris}}. {{City}} will become a template that takes a q-code or an alias like "paris", with the understanding that alias does not do disambiguations and q-code is the most specific. It might be also a good idea to rewrite {{city}} in LUA, as it is called by infoboxes that will be rewriten in lua. --Jarekt (talk) 13:04, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Oh I'm pretty sure my bot is done. Last run exited without an unhandled error. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 14:04, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Zhuyifei1999, Thank you for this run. I missed that the bot was even approved. --Jarekt (talk) 16:31, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
