Ed, you should add:"World Guinness Recordman for Creating Wiki Pages". ;-)
Luigi and Rich, yes either you or I can create one for you. We discussed it internally, and we didn't think of a reason not to do it. If you do it, let's add the note about the User Pages (and the "User Page" tag). Thanks!
As it is a wiki, technically anyone could create a 'user page'. Whether that is encouraged would be up to the Wiki Ninjas.
Is it possible for any TechNet Wiki Contributor create his/her user page or is it up to you?
Ed, you are great guy.
Congratulations Ed for all his work for the community TechNet.
