UK report for December 2013
- Art Nouveau
On 4 December we had an Art Nouveau editathon partnering with Plus Partage. This gave us the opportunity to tap into the expertise of a volunteer whose real life job involves valuing Art Nouveau objects for Christies.
- BCS Women in Science
On 9 December John Cummings ran an editathon in Southampton covering Women in Science.
The British Library announced a major image release of circa 1 million images, on Flickr. See Commons:British Library/Mechanical Curator collection for details of work to categorise and upload these to Wikimedia Commons.
The massuploading tool went live on Commons and is now available for live testing - unlike most of our existing tools it has the ability to generate categories from data in xml databases. So a non-programmer can use it to upload hundred thousands of files without having every file in an upload go into the same categories.
