Hi all,

To the majority of our local organizers: Congratulations for launching the
WLM campaign in your country! You have now officially made it to the second
day of the contest. :) So far, we have received more than 5500 uploads from
415 uploaders, and almost half of the uploaders have registered for an
account after the competition has started. This is very nice! Although not
all of these newly registered uploaders are necessarily newcomers, quite a
few of them may well be! :)

Since few people have asked this in the past 24 hours: There are many
tools, services, and tricks you can use/do to monitor your campaign. Here
are two of them:

* If you are interested to watch the stream of recent changes in your
campaign, you can check it by going to
where Country is the name of the country you're interested in. (For
example, for Georgia, you can go to https://commons.wikimedia

* If you are interested in some overall and country-specific statistics,
you can use https://tools.wmflabs.org/wikiloves/monuments or https://tools.
wmflabs.org/wikiloves/monuments/2016 .

* And while you're monitoring your contest and uploaded photos, if you see
there are pictures that have missing categories or don't have all the right
categories, please add those. Adding the right categories can help with the
discovery of these images later on.

If you have any questions, please use this guide
to learn where to ask your question. If your question is urgent, please
reach out to Romaine or myself on Google Chat/Hangout or freenode IRC
channel #wikilovesmonuments.

Good luck! :)
Leila, on behalf of the WLM international team
