Site for Where is This? Identifying Places in pictures?

I propose a community just like https://www.where-is-this.com/, https://old.reddit.com/r/whereisthis.

Is there an existing community at one of those places that's looking for a new platform? Are there people who are likely to stick around to try to answer these kinds of questions? Peter Cooper Jr.‭ 5 months ago

On SomeOther site, this is part of Travel. manassehkatz‭ 5 months ago

I don't see this as being a viable community as a standalone site. What if this were added as a separate category on the existing Travel proposal? DonielF‭ 5 months ago

What's even the purpose of that site? "I found a random picture of a place on the Internet and now I want to go there"? Decent sources usually list where a photo was taken, by whom. In fact publishing photos on the Internet (or elsewhere) without permission from the photographer is legally questionable. Lundin‭ 5 months ago

"Where is this?" sounds like an interesting part of a community, but I'm having trouble imagining a community forming around just that.

More specifically, I could see this being part of a general puzzles community, or as part of a travel community, or -- with restricted scope -- part of Outdoors. In all of these cases, you would have a community of people who have already gathered for a broader reason, into which this kind of activity fits much the same way that challenges fit on other communities. (Several of our communities have weekly, monthly, or intermittent challenges related to their scopes.) Or, if there were a community for puzzles, this would sit alongside other puzzles that people post.

(I'm aware that Somewhere Else had a puzzles site, but I wasn't active in it and don't know much about it.)

I encourage you to add this aspect to a broader proposal, where I think it would be much more successful.

Outdoors will take these types of questions as long as the pictures are of the outdoors https://outdoors.codidact.com/categories/5/tags/861 Charlie Brumbaugh‭ 5 months ago

Hi Monica. Is this supposed to be your generic answer for garnering feedback, like https://meta.codidact.com/posts/278496#answer-278496? If so, please add me. PSTH‭ 3 months ago

  • I support this! I have at least 150 questions. I went through my old pictures and I want to know where many of them were taken! Am I just supposed to share my participation like this? How do we take this forward? What's the next step? - Chgg Clou‭

  • My family has lots of old pictures that need to be pin-pointed. I'll definitely ask questions. I can't promise answers though. — DNB

  • Sign me up! I'm itching to know the location of some pictures in my collection. Thanks! — Technologically illiterate‭

Can you please edit my entry to convey that I have at least 150 questions? I went through my old pictures and I want to know where many of them were taken! I'm stipulating a number so that you know you'll be seeing many questions from me! Chgg Clou‭ about 1 month ago
