Thank you, Lodewijk. I have passed this message on to my Thai team.

Two questions:

1.  I have seen a number of submissions without IDs.  Will there be a
bot to notify the participants automatically - asking them to correct
their submission?  When should we notify them? (asap or every week or
just once at the end of the submission period?)

2. Not only ID are not provided, some of these are off list and will
not be eligible.  The photo is valuable to common though...
Here is one example:

There are things that need to be changed:
{{Wiki Loves Monuments 2013|th}}[[Category:Cultural heritage monuments
in Thailand]] ==> definitely removed... It is not on the list.
[[Category:Uploaded with UploadWizard]] ==> Probably okay to stay?
[[Category:Uploaded via Campaign:wlm-th]] ==> I am not sure about this
one... I think it can stay for historical purpose?
