- Support The first participation of Burundi in Wiki loves Africa is very encouraged Elmh
- Support. I am very happy to see you join !!!! I might say that you may be overly optimistic about the number of pictures (500+). Be aware that it is better to have fewer images of good quality than many images of low quality. Typically avoid 20 shots of the same scene just to increase numbers is not such a good idea. Just my thinking. Also, if you can afford it budget-wise, and if technically feasible... consider a roll-up banner for the group. Make it "as not-time dependent" as you can, so that you can reuse it in other circonstances. Anthere (talk)
