Could WLMTH and Pakistan (and any other country that would like this) supply me with the category of images and a template to use that would be posted on talk pages, that would be great.

WLM France, I will be setting up the bot on Wikitech later tonight and it should run this evening/tomorrow.

Thanks,
Jason

If we have any commons admins on the mailing list, if you could take a look at the request for ContinuityBot, that would be much appreciated.

Hi Jason, hi all,
our cat is https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Images_from_Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2014_in_France and it would be nice if you can subst this template on talk pages  {{Template:Wlmfr2014 missing email}}. 

This template is really basic and certainly needs to be translated in more languages, don't hesitate.

Sounds good.

What category does France use for the competition this year?

It looks pretty possible, I can start writing this later today and put in the BRFA tomorrow.

To confirm:
1) Check to see if user who has image in a category/list has email.
2) If not, post to their talk page that they need an email to participate.

Anything else that would be needed?

To generate the list you can run an api query to get all users who have uploaded images to "Category:Images from Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 in X", then run a second query for userinfo on these users to see if they have the "emailable" property.

P.s. the category might be called something slightly different

You wrote "mail address"; I read that as "postal mail address", and
responded accordingly.

You now seem to mean "email address".


My bad ! In France we often use the term mail to designate the email, and I made the same mistake writting in english, sorry for this misunderstanding.

Volunteers needed to help pre-screen Wiki Loves Monuments UK entries

Hi all

As you may know, the Wiki Loves Monuments competition closes tonight, and over the next couple of weeks we
need to decide on the winning entries.

In the UK, we expect to have around 7000 entries, from which we need to select the 500 best for formal judging
by the jury. 

We’re seeking volunteers to help out with the pre-screening process, which we have to complete within
the next two to three weeks.

Can you help us, please?

To help, you’ll need the following:

1. A minimum of few hours free between now and 14th October

2. A good level of ability to distinguish high-quality photography from lower quality (guidelines will be provided)

3. A fast broadband connection for downloading to your local computer several hundred high-resolution
images (we’ll tell you how to do it)

4. Suitable software (eg Adobe Lightroom or some other photo-review software) for reviewing the images at
full screen size.

You don’t need to be based in the UK to help.

If you can help, please get in touch now!  Either reply directly to this posting, or send an email to Michael
{{at}} maggs . name

Many thanks

Michael

Re: Monuments of Spain Challenge

Hi Santi and all others!
We opended the writing contest for de.WP in German language, called "Denkmal-Cup". Every protected monument all over the world may be described in German language for this challenge. Many editors of de.WP, who are experienced writers, will be part of it. All the monuments of Spain can also get a featured article. So maybe the author of an article about a Spanish monument can even win two prices :). We are going to announce the Spanish challenge on the website of the writing contest in de.WP:

Hello to everybody!
Great idea. Austria will launch a text contribution contest about Austrian monuments following this year's WLM-photograph contest too, but it is planned only in the German language version of Wikipedia. We did not think about internationalizing that Wikipedia contest. But maybe we can take part of the Spanish contest too.
 
In Austria we have great interest to get articles about monuments in foreign countries in the German language. Last year we got all the lists of protected monuments from Slovakia and many people helped to translate them into German. So this may be the only case that lists of monuments are completely translated into another language version of Wikipedia. This year we have a special prize for new photos of some monuments of the neighbouring regions of Austria. It would be nice to have more international Wikipedia-text-cooperations around WLM next year.

CentralNotice deactivation & deadline submissions

Hello all!

For those countries who end today, I will deactive the CentralNotice in the 30 minutes before the closing time.

Reminder:

The deadline of sending in the 10 winning photos is: 1 November.

You have the full month of October to have the jury decide which photos are the 10 winners.

You can add your 10 winning photos yourself to: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2014_winners

If your prize giving ceremony is later then 1 November, you can keep the 10 winners of your country a secret until you have hold the prize giving ceremony. But then you need to send the 10 winning photos to me (Romaine) with the date of when they will be published.
If there is any delay: inform me!

If your country has a different contest period, we need to have your 10 winning photos at the latest on 15 November.

Romaine

Banner for last day ?

Even if late, is there any plan this year to change the message for today to urge people to upload their pictures ? I don't know very well how centralnotice is working and if I assume that if I change the text on this page https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2014/CentralNotice it won't be updated in the central notice automatically.

BTW, on french wikipedia, everybody gets a notice for WikiFranca, I've already warned Romaine on his talk page but if someone can fix it for today, it should be nice (I think it's related to the priority of these two campaigns)

Thanks.

WLM Statistics Beyond October 1

I am sure most of us use the following statistics page:
http://tools.wmflabs.org/wlm-stats/
It is excellent and very helpful.

I noticed however that the statistics for previous years stopped on October 1, despite the fact that Israel ran the competition later. This year the problem is much more acute: we have a number of countries running it later, two as late as November 1. Is it possible to extend the statistics page to capture post-October 1 statistics?

Thanks,
—Yan (Ynhockey).

Be part of the most epic data collection and analysis of Wikimedia programs!

Dear Wikimedian friends and colleagues,


tl;dr We have just launched our second round of voluntary reporting. This is the most epic data collection and analysis of Wikimedia programs we've done so far as a movement, and all program leaders are invited to take part. :-) You can do so here: https://wikimedia.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_0B3azKpdZ7ggCtD (or get in touch with the L&E team for support).


As we did in the Fall of 2013, we invite community members leading and evaluating Wikimedia programs to share their data with the rest of the movement (i.e., Edit-a-thons, Editing Workshops, On-wiki Writing Contests, Photo Events, etc.). Last year’s data was collected and analysed in a series of reports that was the beginning of telling the Wikimedia story of impact: the incredible work of over 60 program leaders implementing 119 programs or projects in 30 countries across the world. This helped us start building a set of good and best practices for effective programs across our movement.[1] This year’s data drive will be critical to help us continue to do and learn better from each other.


To best prepare, program leaders can review the reporting items [1] and start gathering that data you have filed away about your programs since the last reporting round. We are looking for data on programs completed any time from September 1, 2013 through September 30, 2014. You can ask questions directly on the reporting form preview [2] or on our portal talk page [3]. If you are planning to report and may need support from us, do let us know so that we can help in any way needed.


When ready, you will find the reporting collector at:

https://wikimedia.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_0B3azKpdZ7ggCtD


We also welcome your data in different formats. For example, if you have already reported data elsewhere, we are happy to work with you to make the process as easy as possible. Message eval-AeOJrEpdGNeGglJvpFV4uA@public.gmane.org and we can work out the easiest way to include your data.


We are expanding the number of programs covered in the reporting this year, and extend the reporting window longer for some new programs, GLAM, and Wiki Loves Monuments. See the schedule below for timelines for reporting for each program type.


Data submission deadlines by program:


Due by October 20th

  • Edit-a-thons/editing parties

  • Editing Workshops


Due by November 3rd  

  • On-wiki Writing Contests

  • Photo Events (Wiki Loves Earth, WikiExpeditions, WikiTakes, etc.)

  • Wikipedia Education Program


Due by November 17th

  • Conferences

  • GLAM Content Donation

  • Hackathons

  • Wiki Loves Monuments (2013 and 2014)

  • Wikimedian in Residence


Remember, reporting is voluntary but the more people do it, the better representation of programs we can make. This voluntary reporting allows us to come together and generate a bird’s eye view of programs [4]. We want to understand the impact of programs across different contexts, to examine both more broadly, and more deeply, what works best to meet our shared goals for Wikimedia and to, together, grow the awesome [5] in Wikimedia programs!


On behalf of the Learning and Evaluation team, thank you for your time and support in this initiative.


Warmly,

Anasuya

Wiki Takes... Leuven - photo tour 28 September 2014

Hello all,

The team from Wiki Loves Monuments in Belgium and Luxembourg organises on 28 September a Wiki Takes... photo tour in the city Leuven (Louvain) to make photos of the local cultural heritage. Leuven has a large number of monuments of what we have no photo of on Wikipedia. Still, we would like to make visible on Wikipedia which monuments there are in this city.

On 28 September, we therefore set off to take this city on photo. In several groups of 2 or 3 people, we follow a route through the city to photograph the monuments. Each group gets a list of monuments on that route. More details will follow on the day itself. Afterwards there will be an opportunity to have a drink paid by us and talk about the day.

See for more information and signing up the website at: http://www.wikilovesmonuments.be/w/index.php?title=Photo_tour_28_September_2014

1 000 000

Hello,
we've been talking on french WLM mailing list after one member showed that this year was the year the 1 000 000th WLM picture had been uploaded. Taking categories from previous years and counting using csv file from this year (after having excluded irish pictures that were uploaded before 1st septembrer and are still in the csv file), I find that 1 000 000th pictures should be :
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hel_Dworzec_Kolejowy.JPG

We could argue about unchecked files, files that shouldn't be counted ... and there should be other millionth picture but if everybody agrees I think we should communicate about this specific file as the millionth one. Are there any organizers from Poland on this list that can confirm that this file is ok for their competition so that we can communicate ?

Thanks !
