Can I propose a couple basic guidelines as we continue this TOP Missing activity? I know this is late in the process, but . . .
* Try to avoid, dominating the discussion (I will check myself here as well)
* Clarify between fully-realized proposals and filling gaps/themes worthy of discussion
* Nominating a serial property, try to identify major components
* Re-editing your own recent post (to add info) instead of a dozen short posts make the pages a bit more manageable
In 2014 Meltwaterfalls, Solvigant, and Khuft really enriched the discussions and remain unheard for this region (granted we are only approaching day 3). There are also plenty of travelers who are less present because of their children, work and other challenges related to COVID-19. Let's be cognizant that at our current pace, we could have 40 pages of forum posts before we move on to the Latin America/Caribbean region. For people that are more busy at the moment, this becomes less fun and more of a chore.
In previous years we actually had a rules page! Rules Top 50
The primary rule we definitely have been breaking (me included) is nominating sites from your own country. I began the Europe and North American region Top 50 Missing with 9 proposals (7 from the United States). The ship has sailed on this. Restricting people from nominating sites from their country has pro's and con's, you might be preventing many insightful proposals from people with first hand experience, but the con is we may get a flood of patriotic proposals. At this point, the best we can do is limit our home country nominations to what we individuals feel are the best, gap-filling/unrepresented, most worthy sites for Top Missing. I have have been largely limiting myself to "Contribution to arguments where one has been "nominated"." and just summarizing what already has been proposed/approved.
