This page is dedicated to discussions about the contest "Wiki Loves Monuments" in Canada. Discussions may take place in French and English. Click here for an automatic translation.



Je suis néophyte dans l'organisation d'un tel évènement, et même un peu débordé avec tous les projets du Comité Québec et le CA de Wikimédia Canada... alors si vous avez un peu de temps à consacrer à l'organisation, n'hésitez pas à contribuer aux pages de « Wiki Loves Monuments 2012 Canada »!


I'm new to the organization of such an event, and even a little overwhelmed with all projects of Quebec Committee and the Board of Wikimedia Canada... so if you have a little time to devote to the organization, feel free to contribute to the pages of "Wiki Loves Monuments 2012 Canada"!

Merci pour tout ce que tu fais ! Lâche pas la patate. Si tu vois quoi ce soit que je peux faire pour t'aider lâche moi un wack sur ma page de discussion ou sur Skype. Présentement, j'aide Fralambert à populer les listes de lieux patrimoniaux sur Wikipédia. Il faudrait d'ailleurs avoir une section ici qui liste les listes complétées sur en et sur fr parce qu'en ce moment nous avons seulement des liens vers les lieux historiques nationaux à moins que le concours ne touchent que ceux-ci ; c'est ce que la FAQ laisse entendre. Amqui (talk) 03:54, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
Et ben franchement, la job la plus importante est celle que Fralambert et toi faites en ce moment! Faudrait inclure Skeezix1000 dans nos discussions car c'est lui qui travaille sur les listes anglophones, et c'est lui à la base qui m'a écrit pour que le Canada s'implique dans WLM en 2012.
Pour ta question des sites, à la réunion de Washington, nous avons décidé que l'Amérique du Nord allait seulement se concentrer sur les sites nationaux pour cette année, ce qui est déjà une masse de travail considérable et un nombre de cibles important.
Pour ce qui est d'une section qui recense les listes complétées sur en et fr, je vais la démarrer ci-dessous. Merci pour ton aide, c'est apprécié. Benoit Rochon (talk) 22:31, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
J'avais pris l'initiative de créer cette liste . Elle regroupe tant les listes sur en que fr, mais elle inclue les lieux patrimoniaux classés aux niveaux provincial et municipal également. Amqui (talk) 00:05, 6 April 2012 (UTC)


Que pensez-vous d'inclure les rivières du patrimoine canadien dans notre liste ? Amqui (talk) 23:35, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

C'est une très bonne idée. Par contre, pour 2012, je pense que ce serait mieux de se concentrer sur les listes nationales. Lorsque que l'organisation de WLM sera mieux rodée l'année prochaine, on pourra ajouter les sites provinciaux, les rivières et autres listes patrimoniales. Qu'en dis-tu ?

The Montreal Gazette video about Wikipedia Takes Montreal.

I've encouraged editors at en.wp to join us, by leaving a note at en:Wikipedia talk:Canadian Wikipedians' notice board#Wiki Loves Monuments 2012 Canada, and have left notes on the talk pages of a few contributors that might be interested. Any other suggestions for increasing the number of participants? --Skeezix1000 (talk) 22:39, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

No big ideas, but you should invite en:user:InverseHypercube, who is active here and on en, and likes image work. The Interior (talk) 22:43, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
Great suggestion. If anyone else knows other contributors that should be invited, please do so/mention it here. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 23:13, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
One thing I did for WTMTL was an official lauch with a press release. Result: 294 inscriptions, 112 showed up, even with the hurricane Irene who was not invited! Maybe we should prepare this? Anyone good in English willing to prepare a press file, I'll put it in PDF and lauch the event after "Wikipedia Takes QC" on June 16th. What do you guys think? We also bought the domain, and sooner than later, I'll prepare something like ... Let me know what is best... Benoit Rochon (talk) 21:53, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Well, you brought me in, though it looks like the NHSes in the immediate vicinity of Calgary have images. Shame I don't travel much anymore. If this was about 5 years ago, I could probably have gotten every missing pic in Alberta myself... Resolute (talk) 23:05, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Also, for bringing more participants in, perhaps create a userbox (probably, here, at EN and FR) that editors can put on their userpages? Resolute (talk) 23:10, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
Benoit, both your suggestions are fantastic. I was more thinking in terms of getting more people involved in the earlier organizational stages, but as always you are thinking two to three steps ahead of me. Resolute, grab your car keys and get going! Joking aside, the infobox idea is a good one. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 12:52, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
The other suggestion is to see if we can get some support from Parks Canada and/or the CRHP. If nothing else, CRHP has an active Facebook presence, and they might be willing to post a notice about the event on their Facebook feed in the summer. We should also consider our own Facebook/Twitter accounts, if only to better communicate with people registered.--Skeezix1000 (talk) 12:56, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
I strongly agree with the last comment, having our own domain for the event is great, but a Facebook page can do miracles nowadays. Amqui (talk) 11:34, 3 May 2012 (UTC)


Sorry I am so slow to pick up on these things, but it just occurred to me that it is August (already! where is my summer going?) and less than a month before this event commences! I see Benoit has produced a beautiful official site. What else needs to be done. I can think of various things, but I do not want to step on anyone's toes. Has the scope of the event changed? --Skeezix1000 (talk) 17:21, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

I anwered by email couple days ago... Benoit Rochon (talk) 21:53, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
