Now is the time to work on lists, but it is also the time to recruit
volunteers to help you out. To help recruit people, we really need to
revisit the places where we explain what WLM is and where volunteers
can sign up. The portal pages per country are here:
I just created the WLM 2013 page for the Netherlands on Commons and
also just updated the English Wikipedia page for WLM here:
This page should be in all participating Wikipedias - since WLM won
the Guiness Book of World records, it's notable enough for a Wikipedia
I can only see it in 15 languages now, so if your Wikipedia project
doesn't have one, please consider translating the main lead and
linking to your local WLM website.

Israel will participate for the second time in Wiki Loves Monuments Competition.
Due to the holiday period (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Holy_Days), as was last year, we would need to postpone the begining of the competition in Israel, and as last year we would need to begin the competition on 15th September 00:01 local time and end it a month later on 15th October at 23:59 local time.

Dear Mrs. Wiki Loves Monuments,

in the international contest Wiki Loves Monuments 2013. We became part the
last year with 6185 potos.
Currently we are working on the organization of the local contest.

I am checking and collecting some data of WLM 2012 and I have found some
Take this example:
and this photo:
Even if the user uploaded photos only during WLM's contest, only 2
photos have been included in the contest because only 2 of them have the
template of WLM.
This is one case of some others of "inexperienced people" who used the
normal "uploadwizard" instead of the "uploadwizard" of WLM, even if the
WLM CH website addressed them to the correct uploadwizard.

For the very first time, the UK will be competing in the annual Wiki Loves Monuments competition in September. For the UK, this will be a community-led effort, with support from WMUK. A number of volunteers have already expressed interest in helping to organize the contest, but there is much to be done and many more volunteers are needed, both now and over the coming few months.
If you would like to contribute towards making our first ever competition the great success we expect it to be, please visit
and leave your name there. Even if you are only able to offer us moral support, or want to take part as photographer in September, please leave your details anyway. You need not be based in the UK to help.

I'm looking for a tools to get the statistic of the user that participate in the last edition.
What I would like is a way to enter the list of all participant for switzerland, and retrieve at least:
*the date of registration for each participant (new wikimedian?)
*the last edit of each participant (still a wikimedian?)
Thanks a lot to the one who saved me!
I use this email for mailing list only.
