Text for the UK[edit]

Please help get UK listed buildings ready for the start of the Wiki Loves Monuments competition on 1st September!

In September the UK is taking part for the first time in the international photography competition Wiki Loves Monuments. Participants will be invited to submit pictures of listed structures of significant importance (eg grades I or grade II* or equivalent), as recorded by English Heritage, Historic Scotland, Cadw and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency. The main external website for competitors can be found here, and you can leave a message there if you have queries about competing. Do please join in, and let people in your local area know of this excellent way in which both existing and new Wiki users can help improve the encyclopaedia by contributing photographs of local listed structures. What about organizing a local Wikimeet to attract new people?

In preparation for the start of the competition on 1st September there is still quite a lot of work to do, and we would like to ask for the help of members of this wikiproject. Your local and expert knowledge will be invaluable in ensuring that the lists of eligible structures are up to date and correctly formatted. If you look at Listed buildings in the United Kingdom you will see how many structures are included. If you then follow the links, you can get to the detailed lists for your area. Alternatively have a look at the WLM planning table. Can you help to ensure that the lists for your area are up to date and well presented?

Some of the lists have been semi-automatically generated from data provided by the official listing organizations. These use pre formatted templates (eg EH header) which will make it much easier for competition participants to upload their photographs to Commons as an automated process. Please don't change the template structure, as we need to ensure that the templates are properly compatible with the WLM standards that are in use worldwide. The format will allow a bot automatically to collect the information and to put it into the international Monuments Database.

The data still needs the attention of local editors:

  • The "title" may need wikilinking to a suitable article name (whether we currently have that article or not). If there are several buildings in one street all of the wikilinks point at an article about the street; however each entry has a separate line in the list.
  • The "location" column looks and sorts better if just the parish or town is included (& wikilinked).
  • The "date completed" column sometimes has eg "C19" for 19th century, and "C1850" for c. 1850 when the date is uncertain - these need to be corrected manually.
  • The "grid ref & lat & long" (which is occasionally missing) may be given to 8 characters — only 6 (grid ref) or 5 (lat & long) are really needed.
  • Clicking on the "list entry number" should take you to the data sheet for that entry on the official database which can be checked if needed for details.
  • The image column should have a picture added if we already have a suitable image on Commons. (N.B. if you are going to be taking photos yourself for inclusion in the competition don't upload them until September)
  • References may be added according to normal WP practice.

For further information, please see Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments 2013 in the United Kingdom.

If you have any queries, please post them not below but on the Organizers' help page on Commons.

Anything you can do to help improve these lists will be much appreciated.

Helpwch ni i gael ymgyrch Cymru'n barod ar gyfer cystadleuaeth Wiki Loves Monuments ar 1af o Fedi

Cynorthwywch ni i baratoi i gael eich hardal yn barod ar gyfer y gystadleuaeth Cystadleuaeth Rijksmonument (Wiki Loves Monuments) ar 1af o Fedi. Dyma'r dyddiad pan y bydd gwledydd Prydain a gogledd Iwerddon yn cymryd rhan yn y gystadleuaeth ffotograffiaeth fyd-eang hon - a hynny am y tro cyntaf erioed!

Gwahoddir cystadleuwyr i gyflwyno lluniau o adeiladau cofrestredig pwysig (Gradd I neu II*), fel a nodwyd gan CADW. Os oes gennych gwestiwn, gadewch nodyn ar y dudalen Sgwrs. Neu beth am drefnu Wicigyfarfod i ddenu defnyddwyr newydd? Gall y lluniau hyn ychwanegu'n fawr at y gwyddoniadur mwyf yn y Gymraeg.

Mae cryn dipyn o waith i'w wneud cyn y 1af o Fedi a charem ofyn am help, yn enwedig aelodau'r wici-brosiect hwn. Beth am wiro fod y rhestrau adeiladau cofrestredig er enghraifft yn gywir? Dilynwch y ddolen i'r rhestr am Gymru, ac yna i'ch hardal. Gallwch ein cynorthwyo i'w fformadu mewn dull gwell os dymunwch neu eu cyfieithu i'r Gymraeg. Beth am ei gyflwyno mewn ffordd mwy effeithiol?

Mae'r rhestrau wedi eu creu mewn modd lled-otomatig, allan o ddata gan CADW, sy'n ei gwneud hi'n haws i'r cystadleuwyr uwchlwytho eu lluniau i Comin mewn dull otomatig. Mae safon y templadau hyn wedi'u cymeradwyo ledled y byd gan WLM, felly peidiwch a'u newid os gwelwch yn dda. Mae nhw'n caniatau i fots i gasglu gwybodaeth a'i hychwanegu'n otomatig i fewn i'r bas-data.

Dyma sut fedrwch ein cynorthwyo gyda'ch gwybodaeth leol:

  • Fwy na thebyg y bydd angen dolennu'r "teitl" i erthygl gyfatebol (neu erthygl y gellir ei chreu). Os oes mwy nag un adeilad yn yr un stryd yna dylai'r dolennau wici hyn bwyntio at yr un erthygl ar y stryd; bydd gan bob adeilad ei llinell ei hun yn yr erthygl.
  • Mae'r golofn "lleoliad" yn edrych llawer gwell os mai cymuned neu dref a nodir yn unig (gyda dolen wici).
  • Mae'r golofn "date completed" yn cynnwys "C19" sy'n golygu canrif 19 (y bedwaredd ganrif ar bymtheg) a C1850 yn golygu circa 1850 pan fo'r dyddiad yn ansicr. Mae'n rhaid gwiro'r rhain.
  • Mae'r "grid ref & lat & long" (sydd ar adegau ar goll) weithiau'n 8 llythyren/digid a dim ond 5 (lat / long) neu 6 (cyfeirnod grid) sydd eu hangen.
  • Mae dewis "list entry number" yn eich cymryd i'r ddalen briodol o fewn bas-data CADW, lle medrwch wiro'r manylion priodol.
  • Os oes gennym ddelwedd priodol yn Comin, yna gallwch ei hychwanegu yn y golofn ar gyfer delweddau. Ar y llaw arall os ydych yn dymuno tynnu lluniau fel rhan o'r gystadleuaeth yna PEIDIWCH a'u huwchlwytho tan fis Medi.
  • Cynhwyswch gyfeiriadau a ffynonellau yn unol ag ymarfer da Wicipedia.

Am ragor o wybodaeth, cymrwch gip ar Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments 2013 yn y DU.

Neu os oes gennych ymholiad, postiwch nhw ar dudalen y trefnwyr yn Comin.

Gwerthfawrogwn yn fawr unrhyw gymorth gennych.
