Is the community using some FB group, Telegram channel or Discord or some even more unusual
discussion location?

Obviously no.

Is a new photo differing in content (confusing for Europeans in the similar way as original
was confusing for people from Panama)? Then both should be present, one in the infobox,
one in the article text.

Is the new photo usable as illustration in both cases and differs by decoration 
(people are wearing different clothes etc)? Can you link an edit where it was reverted
(except cases where new non-european image was of a lower quality)?
