As a suggestion of topic... It would be really great if we could have a fix
for lists of monuments & cultural heritage produced from Wikidata at
Wikipédia via Listeria, after the great disruption caused by Listerias last
update which removed the possibility of sorting the lists by geographical
subdivision. This kind of list used to be generated with ordered
sections for every municipality in the district list, which were then
ordered inside by civil parish & monument name, making the process of
finding monuments in a given place very easy. The "fix" available on
Listeria is to add a query for every municipality - in our case 308
queries, which is not an option. This disruption caused by that Listeria
update - which very much ruined that tool in this aspect - is having a
considerable negative impact in the participation in the contest, and it
would be great to have an alternative (either existing or new).

It’s time to pick up the WLM Office Hours again. During these office hours
you can expect to talk with other WLM organizers about different aspects of
organizing the WLM competition.
We’ll start this year off with a first block (in 2 time slots to allow
optimal geographic coverage) on the research for DEI en are looking forward
to discussing issues of accessibility and disparity of resources, changing
local cultural contexts related to monuments/heritage, government or
bureaucratic restrictions to participation, and other such issues that
hinder inclusivity and diversity in WLM.
Please join us on the weekend of 29 and 30 January for an exchange of
experiences, after a brief introduction/presentation by Mesha (a researcher
that supports the international team). Whether you have experiences to
share, or are just curious about Wiki Loves Monuments and the research,
please join us for the call.
When: Sat. 29 Jan 9:00 am (UTC) and Sun. 30 Jan 18.00 (UTC)
Where: Google Meet
We would appreciate it if you could indicate your interest on this page
12 hours before the start of the office hour we will share the link for the
call on this page.
On a final note: the international team will be planning more office hours
again and we have some ideas about the topics that could be covered, but we
of course would like to hear if you have ideas about this! Wikidata,
organizing your first photowalk, or the jury process: what would you like
to talk about? Let us know.
