Is there a reason why so many countries are missing from the drop-down lists on this site? I am trying to upload a kmz from Trinidad and Tobago, only to discover that it doesn't exist as far as the site is concerned. Looking at the list in a bit more detail shows that as far as the site designers are aware, there are 107 countries in the world, even though some of them aren't really countries in the formal sense (like Scotland). It doesn't have all the EU members, most of the Caribbean and Latin America is missing, and don't even get me started on the smaller Pacific states. Can someone please update the global country list?

The list only gets updated if there are a lot of files that concern that country.
So currently there aren't that many files for a lot of those countries.

Thanks for responding so quickly.

The only danger with this approach is that it depends on the definition of many (analogous to the question: how many hairs on a chin qualify as a beard?) It means that at the moment, there may be files waiting to be uploaded, but users can't do it properly as the country name is missing. Can I at least have Trinidad and Tobago added?

I'll Have to ask Mickey, He runs the website and only he can add categorys,

Also why not just put it under "!Other" and then if the category is added it would be moved.

An addition of the Baltic states would be nice too if possible? A lot of their major cities and town are turning Hi-Res at the moment and lots of interesting stuff is becoming visible.
