Commons:Wikis Take Manhattan

Wikis Take Manhattan was a "scavenger hunt and free content photography contest" event in New York on October 4, 2008. This event is a sequel to our earlier Commons:Wikipedia Takes Manhattan effort. This page is for planning and organising the free content media that arises from that event. (For planning the event itself, see the Wikipedia page.)

The Wikimedia end of this event is being organized by User:Pharos.

After the event, participants handed in their photos to the organisers. The organizers are uploading the images to Commons under a single User:WTMuploader account, using the {{WSTM}} template.

Photos by particular people will be arranged into sets, such as "Category:Images from Wikipedia Takes Manhattan by John Doe".

The images will be given generic names such as "Wikipedia Takes Manhattan by John Doe 4 of 23", and descriptions will be later filled out.

Templates being used: {{WSTM}}, {{WSTMid}}, {{WSTMtag}}, {{WSTMredirect}}, {{WSTMcat}}.

Two types of images are being uploaded: subject photos and context photos. The subject photos will be tagged for the Commons galleries they will eventually be integrated on. The context photos, which are fun but don't have educational value, will be in the user sets, but not in the normal Commons galleries.

For a background discussion of these types of projects, see Commons:Photo scavenger hunts.
