Endorsed Endorsed -- As the other organizer of this project, I want to say a few words as well. I am glad we are doing this again. This photo contest is one of the few projects in the country that engage people directly in exploring and documenting our cultural heritage, and certainly the only one at such a large scale. There are a few novelties compared to last year, especially the geographical coordinates and the inclusion of archaeological monuments. Taking photos of all types of monuments will make their conservation state known and will commit them to memory for future generations. Since I have written a couple of articles on Wikipedia on local monuments, I can say that the number of images illustrating them is still insufficient. Hopefully, this project will alleviate this shortage and will determine more people to write about them.--TotalAnarchy (talk) 16:31, 26 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Endorse. This is an important project that has the potential to improve the knowledge about the cultural heritage in Moldova and to provide an educational activity for future participants. --Sîmbotin (talk) 18:48, 26 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Endorsment from Turbojet (talk)[edit]

Monuments are an important part of a country's culture, defining its identity. Knowledge of them leads to better understanding between peoples and a higher level of culture among Wikipedia users. I believe these justify supporting the project. --Turbojet (talk) 13:20, 30 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

1. Why the proposal is important for your community and why you think the strategies chosen will achieve the results that are expected?

As the way readers consume content changes, multimedia becomes ever more important to Wikipedia to remain relevant.

2. Could you highlight any aspects that you think are particularly well developed: for instance, the strategies and activities proposed, the levels of community engagement, outreach to underrepresented groups, addressing knowledge gaps, partnerships, the overall budget and learning and evaluation section of the proposal, etc?

The project implements a well-verified recipe and has a very detailed and realistic list of objectives and evaluation metrics.

3. Could you highlight if the proposal focuses on any interesting research, learning or innovation, etc. Also if it builds on learning from past proposals developed by the individual or organization, or other Wikimedia communities?

As said before, WLM is a well-know recipe and this proposal includes learnings from past editions of the Moldovan Wiki Love contents.

4. Do you think the proposal is going to contribute in any way to important developments around specific Wikimedia projects or Movement Strategy?

The proposal is an incremental step in the neverending process of documenting areas of the world that are not well covered in mainstream sources.

5. Do you think if the proposal is coherent in terms of the objectives, strategies, budget and expected results (metrics)?

Yes, it has a very detailed and realistic list of objectives and evaluation metrics based on past editions of Wiki Loves contests in Moldova.
