this specific UNESCO program.

Every wiki should have a Tomasz!
I just came home from work and noticed that you have already added most of the goodies to Commons. Cool - thank you!
We agreed that I should add the notes to Commons and send a mail with the results so I will of course add the rest of the notes!
I will add them to the same place as you (link below) so they should be online soon.
Thank you all for a awesome meeting!!!!

I've just copied our Etherpad notes to the Wikimedia Commons WLM
namespace -- they're here:
We might want to have the 1000 lines-long (WLM-meeting) as well as the
WLM-tech notes moved there -- if anyone's willing to volunteer for the
job it would be appreciated :-)

Thanks for all for setting up and building quorum on this meeting, it
was great to know the faces behind WLM. As an extra, we also had the
opportunity to know some of the technical core behind the whole
mediawiki, which was just perfect.
I'm wondering if anyone took photos, and could share them in some place?
just changing the topic a bit to make sure discussions dont get confusing.
Wiki Loves Monuments is a contest with a federative model. Every country
will organize their national contest, and will submit their top-10 to the
European contest. Depending on what works best in your country, you can put
the focus a bit more on one or on the other in your communication.
You can probably find some helpful information on the concept page on
This page is not updated after Berlin, so I appreciate any help there from
I hope this answers your question, Ilario?

just got a message from Vicenç Riullop from the Catalan competition
that they launched their website:
Nice work guys! They're using the same theme we're using on the .nl
site, so if anyone still needs to set up their own local site, feel
free to use the Dutch theme:
I just got home from Berlin. I really enjoyed the weekend in Berlin and
I'm looking forward to doing this great European project with all of
you. It's going to be a lot of work, but the result is going to be
I hope you all are as excited as I am. Spread the excitement in your
community for example by posting about Wiki Loves Monuments and this
weekend at your local village pump.

First of all, I would like to say that I really enjoyed meeting many of you
in Berlin this weekend and apologize for leaving without saying goodbye. I
was expecting to meet up with you on Friday after dinner in the hostel, but
that didn't happen and when I left Saturday everyone was still asleep.
With that said, I am looking forward to seeing the Europa Nostra article
coming out soon. As I was browsing through their website, I came across
I think we should really consider applying for this in category 4: *EDUCATION,
TRAINING and AWARENESS-RAISING *. The deadline is October 1st, so we have
until the end of the contest to write this up.
The award is 10000€ which could be used to cover our costs if needed or
cover costs of next years contest.
The application form is quite extensive, but I am sure that if we make it
wiki-style and use the material we have already produced, it will not be
What do you think?
I have two questions regarding this contest:
1. Is a local chapter needed for organizing such a contest locally or
could it be done otherwise?
2. Is it still possible for a new country to register?
I just noticed that someone is also speaking at the UGC4GLAM workshop,
see http://dme.ait.ac.at/ugc4glam/program.html . That's of course very
nice, but it would have been nice if it would have been anounced on this
list too. Or did I miss someting?
Could anyone please share the slides?
