Bienvenue! N'oubliez pas de lire les règles et de soumettre des photos de qualité.

Welcome! Don't forget to read the rules and please submit quality pictures.

Group Description

Do you know Montreal?

This is a very simple (and addictive) group game, where you post your photos taken on the island of Montreal, and other members try and guess exactly where it was taken.

A few simple rules must be observed to participate in the group:

- Quality of the photos: not necessarily works of art, but they must be clear enough and large enough to be guessed (i.e. some cell phone photos, just don't cut it!);

- The photo must contain at least one element which can be used to identify the locale. A photo of “grass growing” is not enough! But if in the background, there is a building or some other element, even blurry, then it can be guessed. Basically: use your own judgment;

- Always include the tag: “mtlunguessed” until it is guessed;

- When it is guessed, replace this tag with “mtlguessed” and place it on the Flickr map;

- Please make sure the title, description and tags don’t give away the answer (this seems obvious to us, but it happens!);

- There is a 2 photo daily limit;

- Please, do come back regularly, and check on the guesses people have made and answer them.

- Note to new members: go through a few recent entries to familiarize yourself with the functioning of the group and to see what range of difficulty is present. It goes from relatively easy to very difficult. But the very easy ones (e.g. The Olympic stadium), well, are way too easy;

- Photos not following these rules, can (and usually will be) removed from the group.


N.B. The inspiration for this group came from the Guess Where NYC group, and as such they deserve credit for the original idea.

Group Rules

(See English version below)

Montréal, vous connaissez?

Ce groupe est un jeu très simple (et qui crée une accoutumance) : on soumet des photos faites sur l’île de Montréal et les autres participants tentent de deviner l’endroit exact où elles ont été prises.

Quelques règles simples doivent être respectées :

- nous souhaitons des photos de qualité : pas nécessairement des œuvres d’art, mais la photo doit être assez claire et assez grande pour être déchiffrée (autrement dit, certaines photos prises avec un téléphone ne conviennent pas);

- la photo doit comporter au moins un élément qui est susceptible d’aider les gens à trouver l'emplacement (une photo d'un bout de trottoir ne suffit pas! mais si on voit en arrière-plan un édifice, une perspective, même un peu floue… là on peut réussir à trouver. Usez de votre jugement.);

- il faut toujours inclure le mot-clé (tag) « mtlunguessed » à une photo non trouvée;

- dès que la photo a été trouvée, on remplace ce tag par « mtlguessed » et on place la photo sur la carte géographique;

- notez cette chose qui nous semble élémentaire : assurez-vous que le titre, la description et les mots-clés ne nous informent pas sur le lieu de la photo (on a vu ça souvent!);

- limite : 2 photos par jour;

- s’il vous plaît, après avoir publié une photo, revenez régulièrement répondre aux commentaires des gens qui ont tenté d’en deviner l’emplacement.

Un mot de plus pour les nouveaux venus : jetez un coup d'œil à quelques photos déjà publiées dans le groupe afin de vous faire une idée du degré de difficulté auquel les participants sont habitués. Nous ne publions pas que des photos très difficiles à deviner; ça varie du relativement facile au très difficile. Mais sachez que si vous publiez une photo du Stade olympique, c'est vraiment trop facile!

Les photos qui ne respectent pas les règles du groupe pourront être enlevées du groupe sans préavis.

Note : Ce groupe a pour inspiration Guess where NYC. C’est à eux que revient le mérite de l’idée originale.
