That is very cool - I like your category tree structure and I am very
impressed that you are able to keep empty categories on Commons without
having them speedily deleted! How did you do that? Also, since we said the
monument lists reside on the home wikipedia, we created a page on Commons as
a portal to all of these lists here:

The Poland page is not there yet. I assume because you made the categories
that you didn't make this page, but you could make a page containing an
overview map of the major categories that links to the categories.

Out of curiosity, now that Wikimedia Germany has over 16000 signatures for
the Unesco petition, have you considered supporting that initiative? Has
this even come up in conversations with the NHB? I noticed that the Italian
Wikipedia is advertising a big banner on their homepage this week (maybe
last week too, but I just noticed it this week).

> I am delighted to announce on behalf of the Wikimedia Polska Association
> that this week we have finally signed an official agreement on
> partnership and cooperation with the National Heritage Board of Poland
> (NHB), which is the main state institution dealing with protection of
> cultural heritage monuments in the country. Wiki Loves Monuments is now
> under an Honorary Patronage of the Board (yay!).
> Both parties to the agreement have obliged themselves, for instance, to
> inform about each other's projects; thanks to that obligation, news on
> Wiki Loves Monuments will be published on the NHB's homepage
> (<http://www.nid.pl>) and information about the project will be printed
> on all advertisement materials (posters, leaflets, invitations etc.)
> produced for the European Heritage Days.
> Moreover, in accordance with the agreement, we have received the full
> registry of monuments in Poland which will uploaded on Wikipedia in
> (most probably) a few days' time. I believe this to be an amazing
> milestone for our Wikiproject.
> The Wikiproject itself has significantly developed since our meeting in
> Berlin and now we have 40 *active* and enthusiastic members who are
> working on our lists of monuments, adding coordinates and pictures --
> this makes us the most active Wikiproject of the Polish Wikipedia.
> Furthermore, we have prepared a yet-unfinished category tree on
> Wikimedia Commons
> <
> http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Cultural_heritage_monuments_in_Poland
> >
> as well as a categorisation template with a full English translation
> <http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Zabytek>.
> We are also in the process of securing a media patronage and,
> hopefully!, an Honorary Patronage of the Ministry of Culture and
> National Heritage, for which an answer we should receive in the next few
> days.
> That would be it, if anyone has any questions, I am more than happy to
> answer them.
