Three new challenges to get done soon:
- While we have articles on every US President now, most of them are just stubs, and need a lot of work. Please make sure the articles include dates of birth and death (if applicable,) dates in office and any wars that happened during his term. Please include a picture if you can. For the first picture we prefer his official Presidential portrait or photograph; other images can be added in the body of the article.
- Also, don't forget the ladies - the First Ladies, that is. We only have a few articles written on them,.
- Many of the articles on US states are still stubs. Let's get them all expanded to a reasonable length! We need at least date of statehood, the latest population figures, the state capital and largest city and something about the economy. If the state contains any major tourist attractions it would be good to mention those too.
- Let's get an article done for each state capital. Articles should include at least the population of the city, the date it was founded and a tourist attraction or point of interest in the city. Also please include, at a minimum, a photo of a significant part of the city or a map showing its location within the state. Only four state capitals have articles so far; let's all try to do at least two or three.
We now have lists of important articles that Ameriwiki needs to be a valuable encyclopedia. It would be great if everyone, as well as working on articles that interest them personally, could try to fill in the many gaps we have at the moment. The Top 10 and Top 100 required articles now all exist, but many are stubs and are in need of expansion. We can also get REALLY ambitious and start on the rest of the massive list that Colonel Sanders has found for us.

A Suggestion on User Names
The internet currently seems to be suffering from a plague of spambots. To assist in their detection at Ameriwiki, it would be a good idea for new users to avoid usernames that resemble those used by the bots. So if your name really is Filberto Wildebeest then FWildebeest, FilbertoW or even FilbertoWildebeest will be just fine, but if you add a three-digit number to the end of it you're going be instantly blocked. If this happens don't be discouraged; just email an admin, explain what happened and we'll rename your account for you.

Aristotle (384-322 BC) was a Greek philosopher and student of Plato. He was born in Stagirus, a Greek seaport. His father, Nichomachus, was the court physician to the Macedonian royal family. In 367, Aristotle was sent to Athens to study under Plato. After leaving Athens, he did some traveling. In 338, he returned to Macedonia to tutor Alexander the Great. He then set up his own school, the Lyceum, at Athens.
