[Wiki Loves Monuments] 'evaluation'

It's un unclear.
A god shot on the market costs more than 50 dollars.
Everything in high quality is a benefit.
So the aim is not to calculate a cost per shot but the relation costs
Basically the delta.
If there is the need to evaluate the success considering the poor relation
costs per upload, there is no sense to have a photo contest. An editathon
will produce more results.

>> 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

>> This is an example of divergence between the real aim of the projects and

>> 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

>> 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".
