Opportunity of tagging as World Heritage Site single landmarks belonging to one site[edit]

There is currently a discussion on Talk:Istanbul#Istanbul_World_Heritage_Sites about the opportunity of tagging as World heritage site a single landmark belonging to a site. Interested users can join. Alex2006 (talk) 11:26, 17 April 2015 (UTC)


I've replaced many images on the page with three: one each representing cultural, natural and mixed heritage site. If someone thinks there are better images, he is free to replace them. But, please, do not add more images. Large number of images decreases the readability of the article, and we can't place images of all sites in the article. So, we have to decide what number of images to include, and I think 3 is OK. Vanjagenije (talk) 12:18, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

@Vanjagenije: Hello, We should keep those photos. They were in small size, no need to remove most of them. We can create new gallery section below and can keep some of those pics there. Yes, we can't keep photos of all sites here, but there are more than 1000 World heritage sites and we are keeping very selected of those, not all 1,000. So we can create gallery. --Human3015Send WikiLove  13:46, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
@Human3015: They were small, yes. But, the column of images was much longer than the text itself, which was quite ugly (on my display, and I have a wide display). I'm not sure why would we need a gallery. We have separate lists of world heritage sites (like List of World Heritage Sites in Africa) with images of all sites. Why having gallery here? And how to decide which images to place? Vanjagenije (talk) 14:35, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
@Vanjagenije: Thanks for your reply. See, we need images in this topic, I will say why. This is a parent article on World Heritage Sites which gets around 2000 views daily. This article should be representative of the World. I know lists for different nations exists but they are given in template below, no one see template. Common reader don't look in template. I am reading Wikipedia since 10 years but it is since I joined Wikipedia 6 months ago I get to know about templates and Wikimedia Commons. We should think about common readers who read on mobile in which template of all list many times can't be visible. So this article at least should contain pics of different sites from all continents and of all religions. There as Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Christian etc related sites, we should choose some of each religion. Also look for continents or regions, like Latin America, Arab World, Africa, South Asia, East Asia, Australia, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America etc. 2-3 sites from each region. This article should be World Class. --Human3015Send WikiLove  15:15, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Official web page[edit]

@Taesulkim: Why are you replacing the official web page of the World Heritage program ( with the web page of the Unesco center for Virgin Islands ( That makes no sense. Vanjagenije (talk) 14:48, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Panoramio is World heritage[edit]

Panoramio is "World heritage image memory of mankind". Please go online again. (talk) 21:32, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Agree. Hopefully the Wayback Machine has most of it archived. Maybe somebody else crawled all the images too and maybe people will start uploading to Wikimedia Commons and other open source localized image platforms instead. --Fixuture (talk) 15:00, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
