Regarding the list of monuments, it will grow even during the competition
as the data entry is a continuous work for us throughout the year. We
heartily welcome Wikimedians from different parts of the country to work on
monuments protected by different local agencies and inform us in the event
talk page. We will find ways together to include them in the master list.
Just like previous years, we again promising to wrap up everything within
the expected timeline after the competition ends and we are going to keep
our promise again. :-)
Welcome you all in the competition,
(On behalf of WLM India organizing team)
