Email me, andI'll see if I can jog your brain a bit. I have received many edits on profiles and research. Deadline for those edits is Wed, Jan 20. We are getting rave reviews from the staff members who are checking in our progress. Lets hope that our friends in Atlanta have some time soon to surf our Wiki. I think they will love it!
