Since that is our first participation in an international photo contest, we
discussed locally about ways to have more information about what is working
well, the results and the real impact on commons of all our efforts around
Wiki Loves Earth here in Brasil.
So, the Brazilian User Group studied and specified a tool, developed by
Danilo (Danilo.mac on pt.wiki and member of the user group as well) to read
database information and generate a complete report about the Wiki Loves
Earth, including all participating countries listed on commons.
The tool is hosted on the server wmflabs.org
under the URL
Through this tool you can have a general idea of what is going on: number
of photos uploaded, photos used on wikis, number of uploaders(with complete
list and registration date by country) and the percentage of many
information, including uploaders registered in May 2014 during the contest.
I guess that tool can help each country to define metrics to evaluate your
local efforts/results and can be useful for other local contests as well.
That's our first time organizing this kind of project and we are learning a
lot, until now we received 1.040 photos with 94% of uploaders registered in
May 2014(167 new users for the Wikimedia Commons in 12 days).
Now we are planning a bot to provide guidance and keep in touch with that
new users after the contest ends.
