It depends why the bot fails to categorize the picture:

* if the file does not have a Monument template (for it, {{Monumento
italiano}}), then it needs manual attention − indeed being bumped down ;
* it the file does have a monument template, then the bot should have been
able to do something about it, but could not because of a mistake at some
point in the process. More about answering Nemo below

Thanks for your questions! I answered on the talk page and tried clarifying
the pages. Let me know if that helps.

AFAICS, User:Yiyi has specified a category for most monuments in the latest

That’s good. We’ll have to check whether they are being slurped correctly
in the database.

Why do we even have

Ok, here is the problem. The current design implies that one configuration
(country, project) has one row template and only one. As a result, all
monuments using WLM2014-riga and WLM2015-riga are *not* parsed. This also
explains the problems with categorisation: the bot does find the monument
in the database and thus cannot infer categories.

Looking at the WLM201X-riga templates, they appear to be perfect supersets
of one another − all the fields of 2013 are in 2014, which are themselves
in 2015. In this case, could we just unify the template?

(One may ask, « can’t the bot handle more than one row template per
country/project ». Maybe so, but someone would have to code it ; and
frankly I do not see a strong use case for it :)
