You should also communicate with the Agency for Inspection and Rebuilding of Monuments in
order to "let them know" that there is going to be a contest, that can greatly

When this list is published on Wikipedia and you'll have some info that it is ok from
the Agency for Inspection... you and the moldavian community of ro.wiki (since as far as I

Předmět: [Wiki Loves Monuments] WLM Moldova
I am Gheorghe A. Iordachi, active user and administrator on Romanian Wikipedia.

spreading the info in Moldova, and are willing to organize the contest themselves.
So what do I start with? I got the monuments list in a parseable format

Looking forward to a successful collaboration.
