Status: draft

For links to Wikimedia Commons.

Link to the (highest-level applicable) object-specific category where available, otherwise, a specific image. Do not link to more generic categories such as "churches in Birmingham".

e.g. use:

wikimedia_commons=Category:St Paul, Birmingham

or for an element without its own Commons category (like node 1675253168 (iD, JOSM, Potlatch2, history, XML))

wikimedia_commons=File:Bicycle crossing, Poland, Kraków, Josepha Conrada.JPG

Wikidata

Where possible, you may also add an wikidata=* tag. See Wikidata's notability guidelines. Anything having a Commons Category (not just a file) satisfies the notability criteria and is allowed to have a Wikidata entry.

Adding wikimedia_commons=* to an object that has wikidata=* can be considered redundant because Wikidata itself often links to Wikimedia Commons. The vast majority of less experienced (newbies and occasional) users however is way more likely to understand the concept and importance of Wikimedia Commons than Wikidata though and that's why it can be considered good to add both. Even for experienced users, human-readable value of wikimedia_commons=* is easier to interpret.
