If you wanted to encourage a 'game
mechanic' in Commons, I think
you'd want to make it first of all a friendly competition to 'catch them
all' and secondarily a competition to get better quality photographs. I
think the ideal Commons photographer would be a person who's interested
in some specific category (say going to concerts and snapping pictures
of musicians or taking pictures of birds.) To support this there's a
need for tools that make it clear where the holes are, both in the
sense of "We don't have any pictures of X" or "We'd like to get
pictures of X".
Problem is that this is in practice a far better fit for wikipedia
where such lists are generated in passing than commons.
