Wiki Loves Monuments
Wiki Loves Monuments 2011 is organised across Europe, with the European-level contest open for entries in the month of September. 169,150 images were uploaded in total. The contest caused a notable peak in the new editors statistics.
: Wikimedia Commons becomes the second largest community (after the English Wikipedia), in terms of active editors (5+ edits per month) and very active editors (100+ edits per month). (Commons:Village_pump/Archive/2011/11#Commons_and_the_September_report_card)
: MediaWiki 1.18 deployed to Commons and other Wikimedia sites. Over the following months this caused widely noted issues with picture rotation due to the new use of EXIF data to autorotate images - Commons:Rotation.
