This is based on this thread, originally filtered through an html to wiki filter. An additional thread (already incorporated) or two might be helpful.


Status: The first three threads are now incorporated fully here.

I looked into using the Open Library, (Mefi thread), but it doesn't look up to the task.

I'm putting the IDs without a name in the profile in with the rest, under the username.

I don't intend to list editors, or people who contributed a chapter to a book. Possibly not people who only ever commented in one thread, too.
