[Wiki Loves Monuments] 'evaluation'

To specify what I am saying:
In the paragraph "Content Production and Quality Improvement" it's not
mentioned any paragraph about the quality of the photos.
It's a photo contest and the photo contest gives a prize to the best photos
not to the biggest uploaders.
This is an example of divergence between the real aim of the projects and
the measures of the evaluation.
Probably there is a misunderstanding in same place.
A god shot of a professional artist doesn't cost 0.90 dollars.
To measure the success the best approach is to consider that a god shot can
costs around 50-100 dollars.
Replying to people that agree that the measure is to cover articles, I
agree with them but I also agree that there is no sense to have bad photos
even if these photos are not "descriptive".
