[Wiki Loves Monuments] [WLM announce] Categorization of images

Hi all,

as you may or may not know, the bot 'erfgoedbot' (run by multichill)
categorizes images to more specific heritage categories, once they have
been uploaded. For this, it goes into the root of the category tree
(usually "category:Cultural Heritage monuments in XYZ") which has been
added at upload, and based on the templates used in your lists it will try
to find more specific categories.

How you can help:
* Add {{Commonscat}} templates to your lists, linking to the right category
in Wikimedia Commons.
* Clean up images left over in the category after the botrun (the bot runs
in the European night)
* Expand and maintain the category tree.

See for more information:

Your help here would be very valuable, because I've been told that if the '
leftovers'  become too many, it will slow down erfgoedbot (100+ it already
has an impact) and that is of course something nobody wants! Also, the
leftovers are usually either a mistake in the structure (something you'd
like to correct), or a mistake by the uploader, making a typo in the
identifier or just making it up. Keeping those numbers low, should help you
maximizing the number of valid submissions in your country!

Thank you for your help!
