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 !

Vandalism or irrelevant submission in WLM?

Hi All,

What measures are in place to cope with vandalism or irrelevant
submission to WLM?

I recall that last year we only had a few photos uploaded by mistake.
Some people commented that deletion is not an appropriate measure and
photos should be allowed to remain on Common.  So, we just removed WLM
templates and categories.

Here is an example from this year.

He makes submission to both Ukraine and Thailand.

JuryTool

Hi all,

We're having a little problem to manage the jury tool app and I was wondering if someone else besides David Narvaez have the know-how to help us?

This problem is not related with WLM, we're working with another contest.

Kind Regards,

Hi!

I am an OpenStreetMap contributor and I blogged about using an OpenStreetMap-based Android App with which you can directly navigate to the cultural heritage monuments. Also I described how these can be mapped so that they appear on special Historical Maps.

WLM/WLE Participants' Survey 2014 - Help needed!

Dear all,

 

A couple of weeks ago I updated the questionnaire for the participants’ survey to fit both WLM and WLE and adapted the timeline for 2014:

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2013/Participants%27_Survey

 

Now I’m looking for someone to help me with the technical issues:

-          Setting up the survey tool (the last two years a script was used that was programmed by Platonides who also provided the technical support)

-          Preparing the questionnaire for translation

-          Exporting/importing the questionnaire for translation (last year we used Translatewiki for this)

-          Sending out the invitation messages

-          Exporting the data from the tool

 

Who would be able and willing to give a hand with this?

 

Cheers,

Beat

Deadline to send in 10 winners

Hello all!

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

It would be better to only ask for such details once people have won;
that way, there's less at risk if there's a data protection breach.

Re: Warn people without mail address -> bot ?

Hi,

I have a bot if it necessary (I should ask a permission to run this task before).
But there is a ready to use tool for this in MediaWiki, which is available for Commons administrators: Special:MassMessage

Best,
Samat

Is there any botmaster there that could do something to leave an automatic message on participants talkpage to warn them ?
