>*>I thought this is similar to a photowalk, where people instead of
meeting in a room go around and take pics. I stand corrected.

*The execution would be simple but needs a bit of spade work before and
after, especially with copyvio detection. New editors usually misunderstand
copyright policies and upload stuff that isnt their own work and it results
in commons being overloaded.

Similarly if you a customised upload wizard, categorising and tagging with
templates can be done automatically and will lower the burden on
uploaders.  Customisation of the upload wizard is easy but can be done only
by an admin in commons. Tanvir did it for us (go Tanvir!), so knowing a
commons admin eases things..
