Most upload campaigns (if not all) use the WLM-is-running template, so
they will automatically stop adding {{Wiki Loves Monuments 2012}} at the
closing date.
Change to the sitenotice and campaign headers (to the thank you message)
need manual action.
As Strainu points out, we don't want to disable the upload campaigns at all.

It is programmed to stop at 2012-10-01 10:00:59 UTC.

+1 That "you're out of time" signal will boost some late uploaders.
We should prepare the phrase and start translating it right now.
