WLM Organizers' Survey – Please Respond

Hi everyone,

In this very late moment, I am sending an organizers' survey to the mailing list. If you were involved with WLM, please fill in the survey, the results of which will be published as soon as possible and in our report.

We're really really asking to fill it soon. We know it's our fault that we published it so late, but it has become quite urgent by now.

Please also let me know if there are problems with the survey, like permissions, etc.

The survey:

Cheers,
—Yan (Ynhockey),
2014 International Team.

Fwd: Project Mosul

Via Anna, on WMIT list:
«The video circulated around the 26th of February, 2015 shows the 
horrific destruction of the Mosul Museum by ISIS Fighters. This is not 
the first time this museum has suffered during times of conflict, but 
the destruction is nearly absolute, and this time we can respond through 
the application of digital technologies to cultural heritage. [...]

We propose to coordinate a volunteer effort of experts and amateurs in 
the crowdsourcing of the necessary digital imagery and the creation of 
digital surrogates for the artefacts in the museum.»

https://github.com/neshmi/projectmosul

They plan to make a list of objects and ask people to upload photos of 
them. Reminds you something? :)

I proposed them to use Wikimedia Commons and they seem positive about 
it: https://github.com/neshmi/projectmosul/issues/9 . Please help them 
figure out how to work on/with Commons.

Help with Wikimetric & WLMTH2013 statistics

Hi there,

Please see if you could help us with these two issues:

1. I would like to get a page that look like:
http://stats.wikilovesmonuments.cl/thailand
for WLMTH2013.  It doesn't work because of tool server migration.
http://toolserver.org/~superzerocool/wlm/?pais=thailand

2. I had tried to use Wikimetrics to understand behavior of my
WLMTH2014 cohort.  How do I config the report setting?  It appears
that Wikimetrics can't do namespace -2.
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants_talk:PEG/UG_TH/WLM_2014/Report

When these two issues are resolved, I will compare WLMTH2013 and WLMTH2014.

Many thanks,
Taweetham

Calendar for 2015

Hi everyone,

I apologize for the large delay, there were some technical issues to sort out, but finally the calendar is here:


This is a web version. The print version is over 300 MB so I can't upload it to Commons. If anyone wants to print the calendar, please let me know and I will send you the files.

Also, please advise where the best place to link to it in Commons is.

Sincerely,
—Yan (Ynhockey).

Looking for feedback on my funding proposal to work with UNESCO as Wikimedian in Residence

Hi all

I’m looking for feedback and endorsement for my Wikimedia Foundation PEG grant to be Wikimedian in Residence at UNESCO. I’d very much appreciate if you would have a look, the most relevant objectives to Wiki loves Monuments are:

1. Train UNESCO and its partner organisations to contribute to Wikimedia projects: Provide UNESCO and its partners with the skills, tools, resources and connections to contribute to Wikimedia projects in a meaningful, measurable and sustainable way. To integrate into the Wikimedia community both online and by matching them with local Wikimedia organisations and volunteers for in person support and collaboration. The project will create and improve content receiving 100,000,000 views per year on Wikimedia projects, educate 1000 people in over 200 organisations to learn more about Wikimedia projects. This will include 500 newly registered users trained to contribute to Wikimedia projects and 500 articles formally reviewed by experts.
2. Make content from the archives of UNESCO and its partners available on Wikimedia projects: This project will facilitate the upload of 30,000 images, audio files, videos, data and other content to Wikimedia projects from UNESCO archives(24,000 images), UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) and other sources including 10 organisations changing their content license to be Wikimedia compatible, a completed pilot project is outlined in the Goal section.

I ran a pilot project that resulted in the images found in the Wikimedia Commons category Images from the archive of UNESCO, here are a few examples that fit with Wiki Loves Monuments:

If you think this is a worthwhile project please click this link and then click the endorse button.Please share with people and groups you think would be interested.

Many thanks

John

Re: Help with members for a Jury

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Will work on cutting down the number of images before handing over to a jury. Lots of the images are kinda 'garbage', (i.e images with low resolution, some even mere 50kb etc.)

In 2012, there was a tool used to sort and select images out of a category. I hope a tool of that sort still exists.

2015: who will be in the international team?

Hello all,

The beginning of a new year is close, and we should start in January with a team to organise Wiki Loves Monuments 2015. So the question is:

Who is interested in joining the international team?

Requirements:
* You have organized Wiki Loves Monuments in one or more earlier years in your country (or a similar contest)
* You have the time to commit yourself from January to December 2015 to organize Wiki Loves Monuments in a team. We have monthly meetings with in the weeks before the actual contest a weekly meeting.

What the international team does:
* The team helps local teams with answers, advice, and communicates about what is expected and what deadlines there are.
* Creates lists of monuments
* Maintains a monument database
* Requests and has a budget
* Searches for sponsors
* Chooses prizes
* Sends survey
* Creates a calendar?
* Does the reporting
and a lot more...

For 2015 we should aim for reaching out to all the countries/areas where a team has participated in earlier years, to reach out to chapters and user groups who haven't organized it before, and to reach out to Wikipedia communities which have no chapter and no experience in organisation but do want to do this. There are still a lot of countries without lists of monuments on Wikipedia,

So if you commit your enthousiasm and your time to the team, be welcome!

Let us know!

Kind regards,

Romaine

In that case if anyone wants to help the international team, it's a good
idea to start now :) we still have things to do this year, and the person
could get some understanding for next year (assuming they hadn't previously
been part of the team).

A few thoughts regarding the international team:

1. Can a national organizer be part of the international team?  Years
ago we don't like this because of possible conflict of interest.  But
what we learned from WLM2014 is that we need more people and we want
them to act faster.  Can all participating countries send [at least?]
one representative to help with the international team?  If there are
too many people, the tasks can be delegated to a group or an
individual.

2. Can we share the resource/expertise with WLE as much as possible?
In other words, the team itself and the submission/processing/judging
mechanism may be common for both contests.  If the committee/process
are common, you can add the third/4th/... topic and go beyond the
saturation stage of S-curve.  This may address many of us who believe
that WLM for Europe is in contraction phase.

3. This is about the right time to discuss about international team if
we want a fruitful contest in 2015.  I believe that there is a
significant potential for growth for people to take photo from
October-August.  Uploading existing photos is one thing but taking it
purposefully for this competition is another.  The earlier we have the
team the better we can work on our PR campaign.

Hi Kaew.

Yes, ofcos a national organiser be part of the international. I also agree
that we need more members, but I also believe too many cooks will spoil the
food. The reach decisions much quicker, I think we need to limit the number
of members we can include in.

​However. in the international team, we can have one member per region;
maybe 1 from North Am, One from South Am, One/two from Europe , One from
Middle East, One from South Asia and so on. ​In my experience, that helps
because there the representative gets closer to the organising team of
those countries.

Completely agreed, we should share resources with WLE and WLPA. It will
benefit all.




Regards from Mumbai,
Karthik Nadar.

Call for Volunteers - WLM International Team

Dear all,

We shall need a good international team to have another successful version of Wiki Loves Monuments after 2014. The team should comprise of experience volunteers who have conducted WLM or any such event in their country. 

There are numerous tasks and first task will be to hunt and find our countries who shall be willing to organise Wiki Loves Monuments again. To brief, the International Team is more of coordinating with all participating countries and without proper coordination, there will be no international competition for WLM 2015. 

Been in the international team is also more of applying for grant, documenting, following up and keeping track of status of all participating countries. Time to be spent may vary according to the skill of team members; more the skills and people, lesser the burden; however you can assume 10 hours a week during the contest (just horrifying). 

Would you be interested to be part of international team for WLM 2015, please send me a brief introduction of yourself and also a note on how you would benefit the international team. Please send the same by 6th of Jan. 



Regards from Mumbai,
Karthik Nadar.
