I have sent this e-mail to the general Wiki Loves Monuments list first, but this request is relevant for all of you who organize Wiki Loves... campaigns and who work with UploadWizard in this process!

All feedback welcome!

Subject: Structured Data on Commons and Wiki Loves... campaigns: wishes for UploadWizard?
To: <WikiLovesMonuments@lists.wikimedia.org>

Hello everyone! I hope all is well :-)

Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons (SDC) will become available this year. 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 - https://tools.wmflabs.org/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 monument or other data 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.


Many thanks in advance!
Warmly, Sandra
