This edit will remove incorrect wikipedia=* tags by turning them into correct operator=* tags.


I, Mateusz Konieczny using my bot account


Message via OSM I will respond also to PMs to the bot account, though messaging my main account is preferable as I will get notifications in OSM editors.

English and Polish languages are preferable, for other I need to use an automatic translator.


Removing incorrect wikipedia=* tags by turning them into correct operator=* tags.

amenity=place_of_worship with wikipedia=* tags starting from "wikipedia = pl:Parafia ..." will be turned into operator:wikipedia=*. If wikidata=* will be present the same will happen with them.

Editing is restricted to Poland.


This will fix incorrect wikipedia=* tags.


Depends on how many incorrect tag will be present, expected number is between 1 000 and 10 000.


An example:
state before a mechanical edit:

state after a mechanical edit:

Changeset would be described and tagged with tags that mark it as automatic, provide link to discussion approving edit etc

This is reoccurring edit and may be made as soon as new new invalid matching wikipedia links appear. At this moment triggering new edit requires human intervention and review so exact schedule is not predictable and bot may stop running at any moment.


Please write at . Note that in case of opt-out exactly the same edit will be made manually for objects where bot opt-out was used.
