A few days ago I've introduced direct upload links for all the
monuments without an image in the monument list. The link worked ok,
but I've noticed that the 3 biggest counties (by number of monuments)
were not displayed completely anymore due to the page becoming larger
than the maximum allowed article size . I reverted the direct
upload link, but the problem remained for Iași .
Since the problem is only going to get worse as the lists get more
complete, I am now wondering what my options are:
- ask the WMF for an increase in wgMaxArticleSize in ro.wp. Tempting,
but even if this happens before September, >2MB pages will still be
hard to load on older computers.
- use a short URL service to shave some characters off the URL used
for error reporting/image uploading. Might still hit the limit at some
- give up on the error reporting and/or direct image uploading (either
in all the counties or just in the ones where we hit the size limit).
This sounds like a hard price to pay, since we've received an
impressive number of error reports and I'm sure the direct upload link
will also be a success.
- further split the county list into several smaller pages. As you can
see, the list is already split into sections by letter, but putting
the sections in different pages would mean between 20 and 30 links,
which I believe could discourage people looking for a certain
I am not sure which of these options to choose and I am hoping for
some advice from you guys.
This year we got many questions from potential sponsors and partners about
the press attention we got last year. We did keep some overview, but not
really optimal. This year we'd like to improve on that but of course we
need all the help we can get. If you see a press mention about Wiki Loves
Monuments, please add it on
add a link there to a local page where you already keep that overview (and
lets copy that at the end of the contest).
Thanks a lot!
rexford put up a first draft of the ghana monuments list, on the
suggestion of alex wagner taken from ghana museums and monuments
would be the best next step that somebody knowledgable could at least
make one line of a table how this finally should look like? for the
number i guess we just leave it empty until somebody proposes a
workable numbering scheme, there is none official currently as far as
as a side node for wikimedia-gh or wikilovesmonuments
only-subscribers, this mail is going to the wikilovesmonuments list
... not sure if this works out to reply for people not having
subscribed both of it?

Subject: [Wikimedia-GH] Ghana Monuments List
To: Wikimedia Ghana Chapter planning <wikimedia-gh(a)lists.wikimedia.org>
Is this the kind of list that is required for participation in the
Wikimedia-GH mailing list
For wwww.wikilovesmonuments.ro , we're using the WMNL team. All works
fine, except for the "toolbar" at the top, which contains links
specific to... WMNL.
I searched all over the place but was unable to find where it is
inserted. Can anyone help me with that?
At the moment we are working on a collaboration with the Wikimedia
Foundation to get some goodies and merchandise internationally produced.
The production of larger amounts is cheaper then small amounts and would be
available for all participating countries. We are looking into getting
pens, buttons, stickers and maybe t-shirts: off course it will be up to you
what you would like to order for you specific country.
The costs would be limited to production costs: the WMF likes to support
WLM, by taking care of the shipping costs.
In order for us (Barbara Fischer and me) to contact the person(s) of the
organizing chapters directly about this, please make sure you're contact
information on Commons<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2012/Commun…>is
up to date.
The countries that have not yet provided their full contact information
(please add an individual contact for communication purposes) are:
* Belgium & Luxembourg
* Czeck Republic
* United Kingdom (?)

what would be the best authority for a monuments list in cameroon? the
only thing i could find was:
a second related question: in case there is no reliable "id", is it
allowed to create one for wikipedia?
I'm very happy that first Ukrainian lists was uploaded to Commons. Sorry,
I don't know to whom I must tell "thank you". These lists and especially
map arise a great interest in our community and now our work goes much
quicker! Please keep it work! It is really fantastic!
