WME Place Harmonizer is a script originally written by BMTG (PM) WMEPH helps with all aspects of editing places except update requests. The script team is administered by t0cableguy (PM), and the lead developer is MapOMatic (PM).

The script validates, formats, and harmonizes the information for a selected place. It pulls standardized info for over 1800 chains from the PNH (Place Name Harmonization) data sheets. Places that are complete are automatically locked to the appropriate level based on category and location of the place (i.e. state/region/country rules are applied). Banners above the place information sidebar provide feedback on what is missing or out of spec with the place region's wiki guidance. Links to websites, search results, and PNH submission forms make working on places faster and easier. Hours can be added by pasting info from the place’s website or using shorthand entry. An optional yet highly useful highlighting feature shows places on the map needing work.
