Write a blog post about banners competition experiment as part of Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 in Russia.
@Atsirlin I went over it and it looks good to me. One suggestion: consider replacing the second banner with a banner that contains a monument. That can help people imagine monuments in the context of banners better. You can even replace the first one (though I love Yosemite;).
How about we aim to post this one week to the contest, on September 7 or 8? (Thursday may be better, to give people time to read the post before the weekend starts).
@Ymblanter what is the title of the blog post? Also, when do you folks want to have it out? We can push it out pretty much any time. Re credits: Can you let me know how I should do it? We usually add a sentence at the end of the blog post in the following format:
(This blogpost was contributed by XX who is a ...)
You can provide as little or as much information as you want about yourself. Please keep the description to no more than 2-3 sentences. :)
@LilyOfTheWest Yaroslav will provide you with additional details. From my side, I would ask you to make an announcement in the mailing list and ask national organizers to add brief information about the banner award on their landing pages. I reached a few organizers personally, and they put such information on their landing pages, but many of the countries could not be reached.
@LilyOfTheWest, Leila, I added (at the same location) the title (pls feel free to change) and the contribution info. The sooner it comes the better, so far we only had a dozen submissions by one user from Azerbaijan (plus a bunch of submission for Russia, which were advertized separately). Thanks in advance.
@Ymblanter @Atsirlin thanks. Announcement on the way. Blog post is out at http://www.wikilovesmonuments.org/wiki-loves-monuments-banner-contest/
I'm missing a featured image to be shown on top of the blog post and on the landing page of the blog. Can you choose a good one for that purpose and share? Ideally, we want that photo to be a WLM past photo and relevant to the banners contest.
Would this one work:
I do not think we have banners made out of WLM uploaded featured images, or, at least, I would not know how to find them.
Sorry for the confusion. Me not knowing much about wordpress assumed that everyone other than myself would immediately know what a featured image is. If you look at, you see that your blog post is missing a photo (unlike the other posts). Our instance of wordpress refers to that photo as featured image. :) The one that you provided works well. I'll add it as an image to the blog post. Thank you, and sorry again for the confusion.
