Hehehe - just stating fact.  I guess a kind word goes a long way :-)

You need to login and then go to the page and you'll see all sorts of 'Add'
and 'Edit' links.  In short note the "Login" form on the right menu.  Also
keep in mind that any news you enter on that page will be reflected on
arabeyes' main page - so don't put daily status and try to make it as
general as possible and interesting to those not involved in the project.

Posting something akin to "Ossama K promises to put in 2 hours a day to
propel this project" is fine where-as "Ossama K doesn't know what 'akin'
means" or "Munzir O. had a car accident" isn't ;-)

BTW: Munzir congratulations on the baby !!

OK, that wordlist_status_bar has now been added for your pleasure.  Check
the status link on the project page.

I say start at the very beginning and compile a list of terms that are not
found on any dictionary and post them on 'doc' to see if others can help.
A great deal of things on there are location names and acronyms that might
not be known outside of the US and/or Europe.

It might also be better to note those non-found terms as fuzzy instead of
'not valid' or similar so that they are tagged appropriately.

The important thing now is to forge ahead and complete the tasks at hand.
Go nuts people :-)
