It is your duty as participant to ensure that your image has the right 
monument id and in the right format (in this case, wrapped between 
"{{ASI Monument|" and "}}"). Should you fail to do so, you may be lucky 
and have your description fixed by someone else (and thus the image 
would participate). Or it could be that nobody fixed your image/care to 
look up the id for you (and it wouldn't). And in the worst case, a 
volunteer may see it has a wrong number, think it's not a monument and 
remove it from the list of participants.
As the uploader, you are the best suited one to find the identifier for 
the monument you have photographed.

Yes, of course you can upload as many images of the same monument as you 
wish. Several angles, several sides of the building, include different 
views of the inside in addition of the exterior. A monument is much more 
than a single photo.
(On the other hand, if you have 30 identical shots, you may want to 
choose a single one for upload)

Thanks for participating in Wiki Loves Monuments
