Andrij, you might want to edit those lists to only include numbers for the
ones eligible for photographs, and leave out the numbers for the ones that
should not be in the competition.

About the Kiev monuments: Yes, we need to tackle these issues because
you're absolutely right, we don't want to create a larger problem than the
one we already have.

About North Dakota: It's amazing to me that for a state over 500 kilometers
wide and with fewer than 700,000 inhabitants they would argue about whether
or not they should allow stubs to be made for NRHP monuments. You would
think they would be happy to create a monument article for everything that
fits the NRHP description. Now they seem to be arguing about whether
geocoordinates are useful. There is something rather comical about the
responses. It reminds me of the movie Fargo.
