Hi all,

congratulations with the awesome result! Personally I feel that especially
the number of uploaders is a great victory.

I found it intriguing to go through some of the Indian submissions.
Relatively many people of the Indian participants seem to be protective and
aware of their copyright, using watermarks (while clearly they have
released it - so that is a big win!) and I think that some of the Indian
monuments are extremely popular. There were some monuments with over 200
seperate submissions!

Now if you want to help still... that would be very welcome! The submitted
images still have to be added to Wikipedia. As you may remember, lists of
monuments have been created for each state (and sometimes smaller
territories). Maarten Dammers (User:Multichill) has created a bot to
identify photos of monuments in those lists that have no picture yet. You
can find the list
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_India/Wiki_Loves_Monuments/Unused_ASI_Monuments_images
 here.

The list contains photos and a link to the list where the photo could be
inserted (under the photo). The number under the photo is the identifier
which is also used in the tables.

I found it most helpful to open the list in edit view, and process all
monuments state by state. Then I would go to preview mode (to be able to
compare images and choose the best if multiple are available), and every
time I placed an image to a monument, I would remove all photos of that
monument from Multichills page. At the same time I would insert it in the
list after the image = . Remember: you only have to insert the filename,
not the "File:" or any wiki markup. For example:
| image = Bull statue on Chamundesvari Hill in Mysore.jpg

Your help is greatly appreciated. There are about 8000 pictures to go
through (hopefully this equals several thousand individual monuments!)

Best,
Lodewijk
