TLDR; What can we do? (expecially for someone like me who isn't admin on enwp and don't really know Nepal).

That sad:( I'm not sure what I can do. Here some remarks (not sure if it helps) :
* why go on enwp (which is notoriously complicated, and more and more so) and not on newp - it would seems more logical and it's probably easier there ?
* some list have not been deleted https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:List_of_Monuments_in_Kosi_Zone ; indeed it's empty and look abandonned :/ I've looked to add photo and other improvement but my knowledge of Nepal. Can someone give some pointer and example of what can be done and how?
* as always on Wikipedia, the problem is source... Is there any avalaible source for these lists?

Hey all,

A while back we discussed the lists in Nepal. Unfortunately someone at enwiki deleted them a few days ago (see some notifications here) because the 'draft has not been edited for six months'. A requirement I at least wasn't aware of. These articles were moved from the project namespace to the draft namespace last year, after this discussion

Right now, a discussion is ongoing how to resolve this on admins noticeboard, because apparently it's normal to delete 200+ pages immediately, but restoring them requires discussion :) Some helpful suggestions and actual help to turn these drafts into normal mainspace lists would be appreciated. 

I assume it should be possible to turn these lists into encyclopedic lists, given that there's a good reference available (see the main list of lists). An introduction similar to that of Indian Monuments should also be doable. 

Any takers?
