Prize for most uploadsEdit

Whether there is a separate gift for the person who uploaded the most photos.--Soghomon Matevosyan (talk) 13:35, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

This question was originally asked on Category talk:Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 and moved here. Effeietsanders (talk) 23:15, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the question, Soghomon Matevosyan. In some countries the person with the most photos or the most unique monuments uploaded, gets a special prize. However, on the international level there is no such prize. This is because this kind of prizes can only be organized in a specific context with more or less similar circumstances. A contributor from Germany has very different opportunities than a person participating in India (with much fewer monuments). So please check out the specific country pages of the countries you're interested in, to see if they offer such a prize. Effeietsanders (talk) 23:17, 29 July 2017 (UTC)


Hi my name is Geoffrey Kateregga, I am part of the Wikimedia Uganda User Group and we would like to participate in Wiki Loves Monuments 2017. Please let me know if we can still be added to the list of the Definitely Participating countries and what we have to do get on the list.

@Kateregga1: Hey Geoffrey, thanks for your question! Yes, it is still possible to add your country, you'd be more than welcome! You can just add your country here, and I'd be happy to give you a bit introduction in a video call (hangout/skype) sometime soon, if that helps. You can find some explanations here. If you send me an email, we can plan a quick meeting. Effeietsanders (talk) 21:26, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

Wikidata and Upload WizardEdit

I'm reaching out to you for some guidance on how to incorporate our Monument Data which is now in Wikidata with the Upload Wizard. In previous years, we had no data on Wikidata and manually input information of each monument into the Upload Wizard. Is there any easy way to incorporate the two? Any guidance you can provide would be helpful. Shannon Eichelberger (talk) 19:16, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

@Sameichel: Hey Shannon, we will take care of this. Can we do a hangout next week? I will show you how the flow will work. Cheers, Yarl 💭  02:35, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
@Yarl: Hi Yarl, that's great news!! We can certainly arrange a meeting next week. I am free at anytime from Monday-Wednesday and after 16:00 UTC+1 on Thursday and Friday. Let me know what day/time suits. Cheers! Shannon Eichelberger (talk) 19:23, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
