is Instagram compatible with Creative Commons?
Can I upload *my* Instagram pics on Commons (so could it be used for WLM)?
Please consider that I'm not suggesting Instagram pics are good for WLM
(they are filtered and all, probably not very suitable for illustrating
monuments on Wikipedia)
but is a legal matter.
In preparation for Wiki Loves Monuments 2022, I would like to invite you to
our next WLM office hour on Sunday March 27th, where we will focus on the
possibilities of using Wikidata for Wiki Loves Monuments.
During this office hour we will have a short presentation by Éder Porto
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Ederporto> about the difference
between having the lists on Wikipedia and the data in Wikidata, what is
needed for you to import existing or new data about build heritage into the
database, and examples of tools to work with the information on Wikidata as
for instance for keeping the data up to date and creating automated lists
After the presentation we’ll have ample time for questions and answers. If
you have questions about WLM & Wikidata, experiences you would like to
share, or are just curious about the topic, please join us for the call.
When: Sun. 27 March, 15.00 UTC
Where: Google meet, link will be shared about 24 hours before.
We would appreciate it if you could indicate your interest for this Office
Hour on this page on Commons

As every year, Wiki Loves Monuments International Team will be applying for
funding to WMF to support international prizes, project admin support,
technical maintenance/development of tools such as Montage, translations
etc for the period of July 2022 to June 2023.
We have published the key questions and points
from the proposal that is to be WMF through the Fluxx portal (post which it
will be moved to Meta-Wiki by WMF staff), and the proposal is due by 14
April. We welcome the community to review and share any
feedback/suggestions on the talk page
