Many of these blanks are available on the alpha pages. Why not add the content while you're at it? Otherwise, you're just sloughing off the work on someone else. I guess blanks are a good incentiviser to get people involved, but I'd love to see some effort put into adding content rather than question marks.

How about saying thanks for a hundred hours of painstaking labor, and not act like you deserve thousands more?--Robot 10:26, 20 December 2006 (PST) (deeply offended)
Sorry man. I didn't understand you were on a deadline with having the book. Just do what you've gotta do, and I'll let you do it. I'm sure the blanks will get filled in. I guess I'm seeing this from the perspective of a visitor to the wiki who's not there as a contributor/editor, but someone looking for information. We have to remember that this wiki is a published, user-facing document -- now --, not something we're working on behind the scenes and then rolling out. From that perspective, it seems to me that a user seeing a bunch of question marks wouldn't see much value in visiting the wiki. The value is for collective commentary. So, as a user (and I assume this will be the highest volume of visitor), I think seeing content or, if no content, nothing at all, is better than seeing mostly entries with just question marks. Feel free to continue this discussion in a friendly way, and I will do the same. WikiAdmin 11:34, 20 December 2006 (PST)

Robot, I, and I'm sure most everyone else, appreciate the tremendous effort -- It's way the hell more than I've been willing to put into it. My question is, what's the standard for inclusion? I mean, couldn't someone just look up "tannery" (588) in a dictionary, or even infer from the suffix that it's a place where stuff gets tanned? Seems like if we just to wait till someone actually had something to say about a given phrase, then a higher percentage of useful, juicy stuff'd get in. In any event, you're clearly one of the heroes of the forum for all your contributions. Thanks a million times for each of those hundred hours & keep up the good work.
