One more American quirk - "Monuments" here
means lots of things here -
but is probably most associated with what we've been calling "public

So while most of us probably understand how "registered historic
places" fits in with "Wiki Loves Monuments" it seems just a bit off.
Any chance of getting a new title next July??!
This applies in the UK too, where I suspect it was a significant
factor in the initiative not taking off, this year.
"Wiki loves buildings", "...architecture" or even "...listed
buildings" (the latter very UK specific) would be more descriptive.
