'Wildlife' in the zoos[edit]

For Wiki Loves Earth Moldova, a new prize will be awarded for the best picture of wildlife of protected areas. Do you think it's a good idea to except photos of animals in the zoos from this prize category? We have a couple of zoos in Moldova and both are protected areas.

  • I'm ok with open range where they are protecting and conserving the animals in their natural, native environment along with natural flora. Oppose to Zoos where they are captive and on display even those with more elaborate harmonious barriers like Singapore Zoo or places like w:Taronga Western Plains Zoo where the animals also include exotic species.

Upload Wizard[edit]

Wiki Loves Earth will start in June. You may still share your images, but they will not be eligible for the competition.

It should be May or on May 1. -Filipinayzd (talk) 15:43, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

@J ansari: That's because India is not participating this year. I've seen that you added India on the list. Do you wish to organize India contest this year? Also, I communicated one of the board member of Wikimedia India regarding this before the contest and he said they are not going to participate this year because there was some problems related to last year but I don't know much. @Antanana: would know better about this. Thanks. ~ Nahid Talk 19:32, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Central Notice and Statistics for Croatia[edit]

Hi @Romaine:, we have changed the text of the our Central Notice, but there is still the old text in use. I can't see Croatia in statistics here and here. Thanks! --Fraxinus (talk) 21:53, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Fraxinus, The different text has been implemented two days ago.
The statistics tool seems to be last updated in early May. I just updated the source. I do not know how long it takes before the tool itself is updated.
The Watchlist should work, as all images of Croatia are in the world wide contest category. Romaine (talk) 01:52, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Hi Romaine! Thanks a lot for your efforts! I appreciate it!--Fraxinus (talk) 19:39, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

@Bachounda: I just fixed it. The mistake was made by the local team on Commons:Wiki Loves Earth 2018/CentralNotice, and also I had not seen it. Romaine (talk) 09:00, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Structured Data on Commons and Wiki Loves... campaigns: wishes for UploadWizard?[edit]

(Apologies for cross-posting.) Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons (SDC) will become available in 2019. With SDC, Wikimedians can add data from Wikidata directly to files on Wikimedia Commons.

Benefits include multilinguality of Commons files (users can find and describe files on Commons in many languages), and machine-readable data with better APIs, that offer more advanced possibilities to build applications like Monumental.

In the not so far future, you will also be able to organize Wiki Loves... (Monuments, Earth, Africa, Art, Love, ...) campaigns on Wikimedia Commons with structured data. (This is entirely optional, but maybe some of you are already keen to do this, especially if you already have source data for your campaigns in Wikidata!)

In the course of 2019, the SDC development team wants to improve Wikimedia Commons' UploadWizard to support the campaigns that want to be powered by Structured Data 'new style'.

Do you have ideas and wishes for this? The team wants to hear which structured data features you want to see in UploadWizard, and we are now organizing a consultation about this over the next two weeks. This page gives more context, and links to where you can leave feedback. We're collecting this first round of input until April 17, 2019. Many thanks in advance for all your ideas!
