A manuscript image (right) was given Featured Image status on Arabic Wikipedia, becoming the seventh such image on Arabic Wikipedia and the seventeenth Featured Image award for this project. This 13th century work shows a scientific explanation of eclipses and of the phases of the Moon. It appeared on the front page of Arabic Wikipedia on 17 September, getting more than 76,000 views.
There were no new articles or translations this month. I have been working on a draft about a museum exhibition and that draft is waiting for access to further research before publishing. The two images uploaded this month were cropped versions of previously-uploaded images. I created a few new Wikidata items to describe objects in the Khalili Collections, including a Wikidata item for a sudaysi, a type of coin that is worth one sixth of a dirham.
A main chunk of work this month has involved looking at how to use Wikidata to improve the Khalili Collections web site. I have used the LeafletJS software library to create Wikidata-driven maps that are independent of the Wikidata Query Service, and have been looking at ways the web site can host Histropedia timelines.
Work continued on an English Wikipedia task force page for visual art outside the Western canon. This is trying to do for the cultural gap what Women In Red did for the gender gap: provide wiki contributors with target articles to create or improve, along with references and resources that help them do so. I am still gradually adding identifiers and links for some items whose description is vague, but I think the page provides a good start to help the community create and improve articles.
