Wikimedia Commons Deletion Notification Bot

Authors(4) :-Hariharan M, Jamuthira R, Madhumitha D, Haritha G

Wikimedia Commons is an online media repository created and maintained by Wikimedia Foundation. All Wikimedia projects including Wikipedia can use files from the Commons as if they were available locally. The users may find some images in the Commons inappropriate and propose them for deletion, but the Wikipedia article or the Wikimedia Project associated with those images are unaware of this. That is when the images in Commons are proposed for deletion, the Wikipedia articles using those images are not intimated. It is proposed to develop a bot which alerts the Wikipedia articles when the images used in them are proposed for deletion, when they are deleted and when they are decided to be kept. The user who uploaded the image is also notified under above-mentioned conditions.
