Usage and development history[edit]

  1. Wiki Loves Earth 2013 in Ukraine - no jury tool was used, but the need was very clear
  2. Wiki Loves Monuments 2013 in Ukraine - the team tried international jury tool (wlmpa), but the ui was not comfortable, there were problems and delays with configuring, and it did not support features like distributing images among jury members. So the first version of WLX tool was written (10.14.2013 - large and gallery modes, select/reject rounds)
  3. Wiki Loves Earth 2014 in Ukraine, Nepal, Ghana, International jury
  4. Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 in Ukraine, Czech Republic
  5. Wiki Loves Earth 2015 used by 16 countries
  6. Wiki Loves Monuments 2015 - used by 18 countries
  7. Used by smaller number of countries starting from year 2016, due to highly advertised Montage and stability/performance issues and lack of features in admin UI in WLX at that time
  8. Used for Wiki Loves Earth (international level), Wiki Loves Earth in Ukraine and Wiki Loves Monuments in Ukraine
