There were 97 events on paper. I cannot recollect reading more than 10
reports. Practically we could say the number would have been around 20.Lets
leave that aside.On the scavenger hunt, Tamil community already has one for
3 month long duration[1], we are also planning for Central Sitenotice for
Indian IPs for 3-4 days in January. You could replicate the same, but be
sure to add volunteer support based on the scale, otherwise it cant
sustain,will have difficulties (Hey, didnt you learn that from
WikiConference! :D)

Steps required for photo scavenger hunt.

1. Customize Upload Wizard, test it.
2. Create help documents, FAQs / videos. [2][3]
3. Create PR using media / social media.
4. Monitor for copyvios, tag them manually post verification.

 -- We are still on process to learn more -- :D

The above activities took us around 30-45 days by a small community.
