I'm gonna start another subfolder for people's favorite placenames, so would anybody like to comment and tell me what their favorite placename is?

I tried to open the 3500 weird location names file. I get an error message that the file open failed and the comment that File has missing or bad root elements. Am I doing something wrong or is there a problem with the file?:slant:

It's not a problem caused by you. Once some files got "lost" and that causes this error message. Hopefully Spiderx22 still has the file on his local PC and can upload it :)

Here I'll reupload it. I only have a version in between though, so it'll look a tad bit messy.

Reuploaded. I think the problem was the spaces in the file name.
Added a few places while I was at it.

Am currently working on adding information to each place, but with over 3500 marks, it'll take awhile.
