Greetings all,

I am fairly new to this board, posting wise, but have enjoyed lurking here for many years, on and off. I recently read a comment in a thread here on the Houdini thread that said "you guys are better than Wikipedia", and that spurred an idea: Some of the more affable forum dwellers should start a wiki on the on the history of Detroit. With all of the knowledge found on this board, to be able to retain that in a more easily readable format than bulletin board/forum postings would be spectacular. Perhaps Mr. Boileau could even bake it into the site here and make it available for forumers only. I would love to take on a project like this, but I have 3 year old triplets instead. :-)

I am open to any ideas, or for anyone to steal my idea (if it hasn't been mentioned in the past already...I don't want to take credit if 15 other people already had my idea). I would rather see it accomplished by someone who has the time and energy to devote to it, rather than another project wasting away on my overflowing shelf.

Thanks,
Sean Harper

On a related note, some of you more knowledgeable members should go clean up the Detroit entries on Wikipedia.

Like where they have a photo of Rev. Ed Rowe where David Bonior ought to be?
