Wiki Loves Monuments comes to a close


A couple of days left, Wiki Loves Monuments has already harvested many, many good pictures for… Wikipedia? No, for everybody. The mark of 110,000 pictures has been reached, and maybe they will be 150,000 by September 30th. One can expect a last rush at the last day.

We learned that all 111 monuments of Andorra has a picture, that the young daughter of Achim Raschka might be the youngest contributor of all, that the Polish have organized expeditions to the less populated parts of their country. I hope that later we will have a nice handbook with good practices and some anecdotes.

Like those about the German authorities and their incapabilities (at large) to provide good lists of monuments. Many were dated, some even hand written…
