Objects lists[edit]

Hi everybody. I don't understand how is required a photo in the objects list. A lot of spanish monuments don't have photo in public domain..., I think that this field should be optional or recommended... Bye, --Elisardojm (talk) 11:01, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

I think this is to list whether the monument already has a photo, but I could be wrong. GoEThe (talk) 11:10, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
Hi, it would be required to have a field for the photo - it is of course not required to have the field filled already. If there is no photo yet, you would just have an empty field. Effeietsanders (talk) 20:22, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Source of the photos[edit]

Hi! I have another question. I haven't found where the requisites of the images are. E.g. Could be uploaded an image from a free site? A minimun quaility? Monuments that already have a photo also are included? Can anybody participate with photos made by another person or institution? I think these questions have to be clear at this page. Regards. --Millars (talk) 11:09, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

To keep the rules simple, we did not allow to upload photos made by other people or websites. Only self made photos - otherwise you get complicated situations where you have to proof that you are allowed to upload them etc, and then Wiki Loves Monuments no longer makes sense. It would be helpful though to contact these websites as a general thing, but that would not be part of the contest. Effeietsanders (talk) 20:24, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
But that isn't on the page. It could be confusing. I can imagine that photos have to be taken by me, but I don't find it anywhere. --Millars (talk) 21:17, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing it out, I hope I clarified it. Effeietsanders (talk) 21:47, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

unique id required?[edit]

this does not exist or is not known for each cultural heritage monument. Where not known, an unique address (muicipality, street, number) should be allowed as an alternative. --Bjs (talk) 07:40, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
