it sounds exciting that you're so interested in rolling out Wiki Loves
Monuments even broader. I would encourage you to share those thoughts at an
early stage through the general WIki Loves Monuments mailing list:
others know about it too, and can help or advise and share their
As a sidenote: in case you would need a mailing list for a country's
WLM-organization (not idea how suitable WikimediaZA mailing list is for
that) please let me know, because I could probably get you one on

Hi Lourie and Maarten
I would really like to attend this meeting, but the only times are
afterhours, and I have a small child. Is it possible to do 4pm during the
week of the 12th?
Please let me know as we were already quite far advanced in thinking about
how to roll out Wiki Loves Monuments across Africa, and have some exciting
news to share.

Thanks for sending out this message Maarten. I am actually currently busy
going through all my Wikimedia emails and were about to send one out about
our meeting. Thank you for contacting Lodewijk, we really appreciate it. I
think that a lot of people will enjoy this competition and that there is
definitely the possibility for success in the South African context. I
checked on the Doodle event, lets see who else is available to meet with us.

*Subject:* WikiLovesMonuments SA: first meeting
After my chat with Lourie two weeks ago, I discussed a possible
WikiLovesMonuments with Lodewijk. He was one of the guys that organised the
first edition in the Netherlands, and he really helped me organising the
edition last year in Belgium. The competition will go global this year:
Europe, India, Chile, Canada, USA, Russia, Israel, Philippines, are sure
they will participate this list (full list of particating countries <
). And he was looking forward to see South Africa join the competition!
More information on the competition is on Commons:
can find a proposed organisational timeline <
that will help us with organising the event.
Maybe we could meet to chat about the possibilities, and see if we can
find enough persons that are interested? I had already a first chat with
Lourie two weeks ago. I propose a meeting, again in Cape Town: see the
