We have made changes to the common pages as per your recommendation:
I had called The Fine Arts Department - Ministry of Culture on Tuesday
after I arrive in Bangkok. A formal letter has been sent to them by
express mail on Wednesday. The approximate turnaround time is one
week to one month. Getting the list is trivial and they said on the
phone that they are very happy to provide it free of charge as soon as
the letter is "formally" received by respective department. However,
in the same letter, I take the opportunity to invite them to be a
partner (send a judge, providing prizes or help spreading the news).
The collaboration part is expected to take more time and further
For a domain name, there are several options as you mentioned.
.in.th - This requires an individual ID. It is the simplest but unprofessional.
.co.th - This requires registration documents (Juristic person or
trademark) in Thailand or from overseas. What documentation can you
.or.th - The requirement is similar to .co.th but a bit looser.
However, I don't think we (unregistered movement in infancy stage) are
.THAI - It does not require anything but not available yet. No one can
provide a firm date that it will become available
However, all of these are equally difficult. May I suggest
instead? You could do this for other
countries too and redirect them to proper sites. (or vice versa)

Thanks for the update and enthusiasm, it was good
meeting you last weekend
When it is more common in your country, .org.th or .com.th is of course
similarly OK (I assume you have a similar situation as in the UK, which uses
.co.uk / .org.uk)
In Amsterdam we already shortly discussed the reformatting of the existing
Thai monument lists (on th.wikipedia), could you link this as well from the
page on Wikimedia Commons? I also see that you copied the timeline from the
Dutch competition. Probably it is best to copy the updated timeline on
. Please bear in mind this is still a 'perfect' timeline, for a perfect
world. As you started later, it is to be expected that things happen later,
and that you may have to skip certain steps.
Please find the information in the link below.
Registration of wikilovesmonuments.th is not allowed. (THNIC admits
.th registration only third-level domain under seven groups of
predefined second-level domains. Strict registration rules make the
risk of cybersquatting extremely low. There is currently no chapter
in Thailand and small grant may be asked.
The rationales behind Wiki Loves Monuments in Thailand is twofold:
* we wish to recruit more volunteers
* we wish to start a high-impact outreach activity that strengthen the
movement to pave the way for chapter registration.
