@Magnus J, Axel Pettersson (WMSE): It is really great to hear about those batch uploads! What kinds of help do you want from folks around the batch upload? Right now the page only links to the category, but doesn't describe very well what kinds of actions you expect from folks. Astinson (WMF) (talk) 03:15, 11 April 2018 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for feedback Alex. Looking at it from a different angel I can completely see that what is evident when it comes to category names being in the middle of an upload is not as self explanatory for others. After some discussions with André we have come up with some ideas of how to improve category names by adding maintenance and by adding a short description (similar to the one here) to make it easier for others to contribute. A bigger discussion is how to connect maintenance categories from different uploads, and how to make sure users who add categories or improve descriptions and such also remembers to remove the maintenance category from the image.
For this particular upload the help needed is to add categories and places to the images here (categories), here (categories of place) and here (location parameter in description) as the metadata was not good enough to start out with. /Axel Pettersson (WMSE) (talk) 11:59, 16 April 2018 (UTC)Reply
