User:Taketa/Wikidata Images

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

System to get images on articles by checking if Wikipedia and/or Wikidata have an image and providing lists of pages that can be improved. This system was created on the Dutch Wikipedia by Multichill and I have introduced it on the Danish, German, Chinese, French, Polish and Portugese Wikipedia. So far images have been added to 1400 pages on simple.wikipedia.

Overview[change | change source]

How you can help[change | change source]

The system will update itself once you have added an image to an article, though this might take halve a day.

Note; Some pages cannot be improved and will clutter the category, ignore these

Getting to Wikidata: You either use en.wikipedia or Wikidata as a source. To get to Wikidata, click on the text "Change links" on the bottom of the column on the left side of the page (languages). Scroll up to find an image suggestion.

Problems you can run into[change | change source]

After images have been added to all articles some articles will be left without images. This is due to some images on Wikidata not being usefull to Wikipedia, or because there is a second template on the page without an image, or because the images are on the page, but not in the template. About 15% of the pages in Category:No local image but image on Wikidata cannot be improved. This amount will increase as improved pages are taken off the list. Eventually all pages on the list cannot be improved. It will then only function as a way to monitor any changes.

How it works[change | change source]

This is done by Template:Wikidata image, which when added to a template can see whether or not the pages that use that template have an image in the template. The pages are then put in a category to differentiate them. To add the template Wikidata image, add the following to a template and change the "image"to whatever that templates uses, like "image" or "Image":

<includeonly>{{Wikidata image|1={{{image|}}} }}</includeonly>
