Cool! And a goal to strive for - 400 contributions! Will that be measured in keystrokes, words or complete entries?

Not really sure. Maybe edits over a certain number or characters, say at least 200?? Or maybe just any edit?

O, please any edit, by just adding or deleting countries in a specific region that will be at least 20 already for me....;)

Which will be easier to track - characters or words? (I'm taking for granted that spaces don't count because they aren't a character but are a keystroke.) Everything I have just typed equals (approximately) 222 characters, not counting spaces but including punctuation.

(I'll stop counting now...) I don't think just counting any edit is an equitable way of measuring one's input. (Sorry Michael!) One member will add a goodly amount of material while another may only make small editorial changes (say one or two words) over and over. (Think Grammar Police... ) Both would be credited with the contribution, but which contribution gives the biggest bang for the buck?

Isa now refrains from typing any more corny metaphors and leaves before Michael counter-attacks with edits!

tway, the Montreal guide is exactly how I'd expect it to be written; good stuff! The only thing I could see someone falling over is "Montreal ... has the most fashionable and hip population", although I know it to be true

I wrote the fashionable and hip population quote. People in Montreal are way cooler than any other people in Canada. it's fact. You can look it up.

Boy Michael - for someone who reluctantly went kicking and screaming into the wiki area, your name is plastered all over page 1 of the "Recent Changes" section. (Now, tell me it's not addictive once you get started!)
