[WMCEE-l] Own country

I think that we decided not to promote articles about your own country. 
People write about Greece in Greek or about Estonia in Estonian anyway - so there is no need for any additional motivation here. We have two countries each week - so if one of them is yours, you just promote the other one only. 
If there is a problem with Russia, I think we just need to find one more country to join CEE Spring and put them in pair with Russia. Better late than never - anyone still hesitating whether to join or not?

A question on the principle: each community will have one week when it 
is time for their own country. Usually, content about own country is 
most developed to begin with, so writing about it misses the point of 
this competition - improving coverage of neglected areas. Luckily, there 
is almost always at least two countries per week in the new schedule, 
but Russians won't have anything to contribute when it is their turn.

Should we just count articles about own country the same anyway, exclude 
such contributions, or think of something else? I was thinking about 
encouraging people to write about their country in other participating 
Wikipedias (if they know the language, of course) - so their 
contributions would count twice, both in their home wiki and in the 
other one.

Your thoughts are welcome.
