Hi. (Regarding your post on project chat) MTC!, a tool developed by Fastily, written in Java, is open-source. I think in your community should be at least one user with programmer skills, who can code in Java. If you'll start a discussion locally about this fact, perhaps someone will be able to modify and adapt this tool for your wiki, and everyone will be happy seeing tons of files moved to Commons :)

Hi Syced!

I have finished analyzing the pilot campaign result. You can find the analysis result here. I have also proposed some changes on the existing item quality criteria. You might want to take a look at those :)

Hi Syced!

Thanks for your feedback for item quality model! I do appreciate your idea and feedback :)

I would like to ask if you are aware about this landing page: Wikidata:Item quality campaign. Additionally, I'd like to ask if you have participated in the pilot campaign :D

Can I join the bento meet up?  I'm a wikidata beginner and an OpenStreetMapper.

Syced (talkcontribs)


Of course! See you at at 12:00 tomorrow :-)

Since you are an OpenStreetMapper, how about working on this tomorrow?

It is a useful task that links Wikidata and OpenStreetMap.

Thanks for your information. It's one of my concern if importing OSM objects into wikidata is possible legally, not technically.

Is there an agreement between wikidata community and OSM foundation for importing?

I'm not an ODbL enthusiast though, there may be some license violation for bulk import from ODbL to CC0 even if it may be fact data. If importing is "Substantial", ODbL license should be carried.

Syced (talkcontribs)

Inserting Wikidata identifiers into OpenStreetMap is 100% legal. Wikidata identifiers are public domain, and importing public domain material into OpenStreetMap is OK.

Syced (talkcontribs)

Thinking more about it, I agree with you that the second phase is problematic, thanks for the insight! I divided the Github issues into two phases for better clarity. We can at least start with phase 1, which is legal, I believe.

Higa4 (talkcontribs)

I agree. Wikidata -> OSM is OK.

Higa4 (talkcontribs)

Sorry, I may be late 10 or 20 min.
