[Wiki Loves Monuments] Reuploading

Yes, you are right, we can create a subpage automatically and presumably
update it easily.

Regarding the time issue, wouldn't that be limited automatically by the
contest duration? If the user does not replace the photo within the month
of Sep., then the mobile upload would simply participate on its own merits.

This feature would simply add an option to the normal mobile upload, so a
photo of the monument would still be uploaded. It just adds some
record-keeping ability.

Thanks for your feedback.
