Congrats and thanks to everyone. I am very glad that India participated in Wiki Loves Monuments. In my personal capacity as a volunteer, I used https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_State_Protected_Monuments_in_Karnataka to find that a photo of an place I'd visited was needed, and got to share a holiday snap: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bull_statue_on_Chamundesvari_Hill_in_Mysore.jpg It was a wonderful feeling to get to contribute something useful to Commons; thanks to WLM organizers and participants for setting up and maintaining the "here's what we need" lists and help pages! -- Sumana Harihareswara Engineering Community Manager Wikimedia Foundation _______________________________________________ Wikimediaindia-l mailing list Wikimediaindiaemail@example.com To unsubscribe from the list / change mailing preferences visit https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaindia-l
