From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki



Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

Our overall goal was to capture and upload 40 pictures of features affected by climates in and around the Lagos State University, Epe Campus, Epe local government of Lagos, the features include such as Buildings, Local occupation - fishing and farming, Water bodies, Cloud, Sunset and Sunrise, Landscape, General vegetation and Means of transportation. However our participants were constrained by school activities We were still able to upload about 53 pictures on Wiki Commons

Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?

We were able to surpass our target goals in terms of participants and number of picture uploads despite the constraints

  • What did not work so well?

We were not able to capture all the features we outlined in our meta page as the environment had similar features in different parts of the location.

  • What would you do differently next time?

We would pick different geographical locations so we can have variaties of climatic features to capture. We would host the event for a longer period to accomodate the constraints of school activities affecting participants.
