unique identifier for the monument

(starting a new thread, that way it's easier to find)

the identifier of a monument usually originates from the 'authority' (the government, usually). There are some good examples here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2016/Lists_of_monuments 

If that doesn't answer your question, please let us know!

Best,
Lodewijk

Great!!!

One of the questions that I need this platform to answer for us is in the area of ID for monument.

Where does the ID comes from, is it the  WLM or from the originating country of the monuments.

Best Regards.

Glad to see participation from both Nigeria and Peru! I hope you'll feel welcome to ask any questions you have on this mailing list - we have a bunch of experienced organisers from a wide range of countries here, so many may have dealt with similar issues.

Present and Future of Wiki Loves Monuments

Hi there!

At Wikimania Jean-Fred and I held a presentation about Wiki Loves Monuments, which you can now find on Commons: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Present_and_Future_of_Wiki_Loves_Monuments.pdf

The etherpad for that session can be found at https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/wlm-future - I hope most of the questions were answered, but there still might be some topics that we want to discuss further, especially what role the WMF could or should play in Wiki Loves Monuments.

There's also WMSE's presentation on WLM and preserving heritage sites on Commons in case you missed the very interesting presentation: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:How_You_and_the_Rest_of_the_Wikimedia_Movement_Can_Help_Preserve_the_World%E2%80%99s_Cultural_Heritage,_Wikimania_2016.pdf

If you have any further questions regarding the presentation please don't hesitate to contact me.

Best,
Philip

Publishing sources of WLM Judging/Jury Tools

It seems that we have two Jury tools deployed on Tool labs without source code published - German's and Israel's. It violates Tool labs policy (although not enforced and largely ignored) on having source code of the tool available. It also prevent others from trying to use, investigate or adapt useful ideas from that tools. As I published the source code my tool I finally have a right and would like to ask to publish sources of two other tools :). There was also Brazil's tool, but it's not used recently and the it's source code was published somewhere.

Regards,
Ilya

Guinness World Record?

Hey folks,

A few years ago, we managed to set the world record for the largest photography competition in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. We still hold this record with our 2012 competition

I was thinking, as a little bonus on WLM 2016, would it be nice to try and break another record? The competition will be hard to break if I look at our previous submissions, but there is another record that might be interesting: the largest digital photo exhibition. The record currently stands at 115,117 and seems breakable. 

Based on what I read, this might be a bunch of LED screens all displaying a slide show of photos at a publicly accessible place. We could do this during some kind of event, and simply show all WLM submissions from the international competition. 

Anyway, is there anyone, or a chapter/local team that would like to consider organising something like this? If we want, we could even make it a 'travelling' exhibition. It would require a lot of screens, a nice occasion to display them, a bit of software to show the photos and collecting evidence. 

Best,
Lodewijk

WLM and the international team

Hi everyone,

Greetings from the WLM international team. :) We're excited to work with all of you this year to bring more of the world heritage to our projects. You will hear from us more in the coming weeks about specific action items we'd like to work with you on, but in the mean time, we'd like to share with you a list of items that you should be aware of:

* While we share specific timelines soon, it's worth to point out that the contest will take place in the month of September.

* Check out Who's who and familiarize yourself with the international team. We expect a couple of more additions to this list in the coming week or so, but other than that, the list is stable at this point. :)

* All tasks related to WLM 2016 that the international team should work on will be tracked in Phabricator, under the Wiki-Loves-Monuments (2016) milestone. If you have a task that needs our attention, please tag it with Wiki-Loves-Monuments (2016).

* We are excited that so far three new and many old-timer countries have signed up to participate. If your country's name is not on the list of definitely participating countries, we want to see that changed if possible. So, please reach out to me off-list and we will do what we can to help you participate, especially if you reach out to us soon.

* We are collecting specifications for further developing a jury tool for WLM. If your country has used a jury tool since 2014, please let us know about your experience with the tool through this survey (Before clicking the link, please note that this is a survey on a third party site): https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1olQD3Ec4DA__-MS1xgdvD8YAyzsfI3K6HFaTjlzprTY/viewform by July 9, AoE.

* We are looking for at least one individual who can help us with communications (on the blog post and beyond) before, during, and after the WLM contest. If you are up for helping us, please ping me.

* We are also looking for an Arabic speaker who can help us with our communications. If this sounds remotely interesting to you, please ping. me and we can figure out the time commitment. :)

If there is anything else we can help you with, please don't hesitate to ping me.

Best,
Leila, on behalf of the WLM international team

Grant submitted

Hi WLMers
the grant for 2016 has been submitted.

Have a look and give suggestions:

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:PEG/Wiki_Loves_Monuments_international_team/2016_coordination

What's new this year? We added a small budget to develop a jury tool or (better) to improve someone already existing.

Kind regards

Exciting plans to share on wikilovesmonuments.org?

Hey folks,

Tomorrow I'll be posting a blog post about the wiki loves monuments exhibition at Wikimania, and I thought this might be a nice opportunity to ask if anyone else would like to share a story at the international blog. If you'd like to do this, please get in touch with someone from the international team or me. Unless someone tells me otherwise, I'll just be bold in accepting stories :) 

Try to make it interesting to the world, make it visual etc. For example, I'd love to see a story about the Belgian freedom of panorama as soon as that becomes effective - we could talk a little on how also more recent Belgian buildings can now be photographed. But I can imagine more countries wanting to share their successes, or what they're planning this year? Or perhaps a few monuments under threat? 

Anyway, be creative, and get in touch. If you doubt if your topic is good for the blog, just email this list. 

Best,
Lodewijk

Ask questions for grant

Dear all
Today I have meet Kacie to know something about the grants changes and the impact on wiki loves monuments.

The biggest point is that the grants will change after the 30th June. The rapid grant (until 2'000 dollars) is at the moment the most feasible solution but probably insufficient for some communities.

Some questions come up, so Kacie Harold is really so kind to have a session to solve questions about grants for local wiki loves monuments organizers.

She will be available in the afternoon in Pietro Pensa square (in front of ex museum hosting now community village).

Please come there tomorrow and bring with you your questions.

Use this opportunity to prepare a great grant!
