Helpdesk

Hi,

Just as a reminder, do people have the helpdesk on commons on their watchlist (
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments/Help_desk )? I just answered
two questions there.

Regards,

André

There is a deadline

Hello all;

We still need more help to translate the WLM map to all languages in this edition.[1]

But I'm writing this e-mail because I have seen in English Wikipedia mainpage the news about the destruction of two temples by ISIL.[2]

It would be great if the essay "There is a deadline"[3] is translated to more languages during September.

Thanks

ErfgoedBot status

Hi all,

ErfgoedBot is running again and the Monuments database was updated.

There are still issues going on that are being sorted out − in particular, several countries have not been harvested properly (see [T110420] for list). 

Please report (best by filing a task on Phabricator, or by emailing here or me directly) any problem you notice with the Monuments database. 

Cheers,

Update: The license of the upload wizard changed to 4.0

Hello all,

In all the upload wizards for Wiki Loves Monuments since today CC BY-SA-4.0 is used, instead of 3.0. This change has been implemented as 4.0 is the most updated license that is promoted by Creative Commons.

What should you do?
Please check your documentation for the mentioning of CC BY-SA-3.0 and change this to CC BY-SA-4.0. Please also note that localised CC BY-SA-xx (with the xx the country code of your language) also changes to CC BY-SA-4.0 (without the suffix!!).

Examples:
CC BY-SA-3.0 changes to CC BY-SA-4.0
CC BY-SA-3.0-at changes to CC BY-SA-4.0
CC BY-SA-3.0-de changes to CC BY-SA-4.0
CC BY-SA-3.0-es changes to CC BY-SA-4.0

Also:
CC BY-3.0 changes to CC BY-4.0


Don't forgot
Don't forget to read the requirements for local organisers.

Greetings,
Romaine

Preparations international for Wiki Loves Monuments started: info for local organisers

Hello all!

At the end of this month Wiki Loves Monuments is organised for the 6th time! To make that possible I am as in previous years responsible for the upload wizard and the CentralNotice banner.

To make it easier for local organisers, I have created a page about what the international team expects from the local team. This is described on: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2015/Organise

*** Please read the requirements! ***
For who Wiki Loves Monuments has organised before, don't forget:
* Add there as well how the international team can reach your local team.

Deadline of sending in the 10 winning photos is again 1 November!

Let's make a great contest!

Romaine

Translations needed for Latvian, Malay and Brazilian Portuguese

Hello!

Also this years Wiki Loves Monuments is organised in multiple countries around the world. To maximize the ability that local people can participate, because they only need to know their own language, the upload wizard and CentralNotice banner is translated in the local languages where the contest is organised.

Local users are working on the organisation of Wiki Loves Monuments, but they need help with some translations in Latvian, Malay and Brazilian Portuguese.

You can help if you speak one of these languages!

Go to the following page and translate the lines mentioned into the local language: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons_talk:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2015/Upload_campaigns

Thanks!

Romaine

WMF Grants for Wiki Loves Monuments

Hi All!

If you need financial support for your local Wiki Loves Monuments contest for prizes, events, etc., you can apply for a Project & Event Grant

Grant proposals for Wiki Loves Monuments support should be submitted as soon as possible, but no later than August 17th. This year, we hope to avoid the large numbers of grant requests received after the contest start date.
