    Apologies Emma, I've only just seen this comment. Glad you liked it. Not much uptake as yet, but I haven't really promoted it directly to them. I have now set it though to automatically post comments when geo or date suggestions are made and are awaiting approval (as you saw here) so I suspect more people will become aware of it. So far there have been 316 geo suggestions and 182 date suggestions across all Commons images, but over a half of these remain unapproved. I'm just working on some functionality that would allow you to set challenges, for example to create a set and then promote those amongst your users. Would that be of interest? You can of course already promote a link to any individual image in the form www.whatsthatpicture.com/flickr/commons/photo.php?photo_i... (using the image ID from the photo page url) or to a search on your images, for example www.whatsthatpicture.com/flickr/commons/search.php?q=&... is all your non-geotagged images dated pre-1900 (I can see some quite obvious ones I could get started with!)
