  1. Would like to hear points of view on how to measure effectiveness of these contests. In WLM and WLE we've got many beautiful photoshopped pics as winners, their use for Wikipedia is doubtful sometimes, but still we award them. Am also eager to take part in open discussion. --Olena Zakharian (talk) 18:11, 26 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]
