I am working for Wikimedia Germany together with Nicole and am currently
helping out with the Wiki Loves Monuments project.
Right now I am trying to find the cheapest way to order all of the T-Shirts
in one place and have them send to the participating countries by the shirt
Hopefully the negotiations will be done within the next couple days and the
T-Shirt printer can start doing his job.
In order to send them to you, we will need adresses.
My request: Please send me a delivery adress containing:
- Street & house number
- Postal Code
so we can start sending out the shirts as soon as possible.
We are planning on sending about 20 shirts to each country. If you think
that is not enough / too much for you, please also contact me.
Thanks for your cooperation in advance!

Berlin-Charlottenburg unter der Nummer 23855 B. Als gemeinnützig

in september, I helped my hometown uploading pictures and small movies
for Wiki Loves Monuments. The pictures are here:
... and the 26 videos are in the category that Maarten created:
I would like to help the people from the museum further by enriching
these pictures with annotations. One of my argument when "selling" the
project was: "It will be useful to see what pictures people really find
interesting... or even what *part* of a picture they are really curious
So I set up a small "clickmap" experiment with 12 pictures:
Click on a link, click on the detail of the picture you want to know
more about, this will be recorded and used for producing "clickmap" of
You can check the clickmaps here:
A few questions:
1) do you think a generalization of this experiment for other pictures
would be useful?
2) is it Common do have several annotations for the same picture? Any
"edit wars" here?...
Thanks in advance for any feedback!
When I explained a sponsor that the Sagrada Família is the most photographed monument in Spain with 175 photos submited by 38 participants, then raised and obvious question: which are the monuments in Europe with most submissions?
Anyone can play some magic in the database to find it out?
I just closed the participant surveys. I will run a primary analysis
on them the coming days and will email you some preliminary results. I
will ask for help later interpreting the comments and getting back to
people where necessary.
Minor point: I got only 1 respons in hungarian. I assume this is
because the survey bot didn't run to the hungarian participants yet. I
suggest to run this after all, but with a seperate survey - to avoid
contamination of the international outcomes & lessons.
Found by a German ORTS member:
Related to Germany but I think interesting for other countries with
freedom of panorama too:
Summary: An house owner filed a suit against a company because it uses a
photography of her house in an advertising campaign for Black Forest
ham. But the house owner lose the case because the image was taken from
public ground. The court confirmed freedom of panorama.
I am delighted to confirm that the Board of Wikimedia Poland has
generously agreed to cover the costs of producing 500 calendars showing
12 best photos from the European stage of our competition as chosen by
the European jury.
The calendars will be printed on a high quality A3 or A4 photographic
paper, and will consist of 13 pages, including the title page. We will
have the possibility to design them from scratch and are currently
looking for a graphic designer and a DTP specialist -- volunteers are
hereby warmly welcomed :-)
Wikimedia Poland will pay for the said 500 calendars; in order to
collect your orders, I've designed a Google form, just as it was
designed by Nicole for the T-shirts. Please fill the form giving all the
required information, as stated at <http://goo.gl/b2T20>.
As we have to divide those 500 calendars between 18 participating
countries, we plan to send 25 calendars to each country; you will be
able to order more than that, but you'll need to pay for the additional
number. The shipping costs will be covered from our European budget.
The exact cost of the orders will be given after we collect orders from
all countries; please try to fill the form in the next three weeks, as
the deadline is Wednesday, November 9, 00:00 (UTC), so we can have the
time to button up the whole thing before the results of the European
stage are announced.
The order form, again, is available at <http://goo.gl/b2T20>.
