I also think even though a very fun topic, this is actually the top missing list. it just needs an update. Anyway, here are my picks:
Salento and the Barocco Leccese
Ludwig's castles

Jerash seems to be a "winner" here, it is on 6 out of 12 lists.

I only have 36 TWHS, and only in Europe. Reviewing my list, I'd only select 3 that I think would be a great addition to the WHS list:

- Knights Fortifications around the Harbours of Malta
- Salento and the "Barocco Leccese"
- Sites funéraires et mémoriels de la Première Guerre mondiale (Front Ouest)

I've visited 34 TWHS and while I think a good nomination file could be pulled together to make over half of them contenders for a place on the list I think I'd have trouble selecting ten that definitely deserve it.

So my top five would be:
- Padova Urbs Picta (Italy)
- Torres del Paine National Park (Chile)
- Pharaonic Temples in Upper Egypt (Egypt)
- Ellis Island (USA)
- And then either Lake Titicaca (Peru - though preferably as a trans-national nomination with Bolivia) or Minoan Palatial Centres (Greece)

After perusing many of your favorites, I must say Jerash Archaeological City (Jordan) does seems to be quite exceptional and conspicuously missing from our 2014 Top Missing list. Another site mentioned by several of us is White Sands National Park (USA)

Several of you mentioned very deserving nominations that our community identified in 2014.

Including in Top Missing List (2014)
Pharaonic temples in Upper Egypt from the Ptolemaic and Roman periods (Egypt)
Dzongs: the centre of temporal and religious authorities (Bhutan)
Sacred Titicaca Lake (Peru/Bolivia)
Minoan Palatial Centres (Greece)
El Nido Taytay Managed Resource Protected Area (Philippines)
Westhoek: places of memory and monuments of the Great War (Belgium, France)
Sites Mégalithiques de Carnac (France)
Cenotes of the Yucatan (Mexico)
Torres del Paine National Park (Argentina)
Shwedagon Pagoda (Myanmar)
Early Chicago Skyscrapers (USA)
Petrified Forest National Park (USA)
The Qutb Shahi Monuments of Hyderabad Golconda Fort, Qutb Shahi Tombs, Charminar (India)
Padova Urbs Picta (Italy)
