    Hi guys,

    There's been an influx of analyst opinions recently... so we decided to try to track analyst predictions using the wiki. I had thought about a more automated system, but I think the wiki might actually be easier.

    Basically, the ideal is to create a wiki page for each analyst who comes out with predictions about Apple, list their predictions, dates, and in the end if it comes true or not.

    Any strong opinions on the names of the articles? I think it should be individuals rather than company names, since it seems the predictions come from individuals more consistently

    Examples:

    Analyst_Charles_Wolf
    Charles_Wolf
    Charles_Wolf_(Analyst)
    Predictions_Charles_Wolf

    etc...

    I'm down with the Analyst prefix, and we could have an Analyst directory page

    EDIT: on second thought, the "Firstname Lastname (Analyst)" might work better for linking from the front page... flows better.

    This is a great idea!

    Don't forget Andrew Neff and, if she is still covering Apple, Laura Conigliaro.

    I agree with the current naming scheme.

    Would it be worth making an Analysts category rather than using a directory page? Then we don't have to manually update it every time a new analyst is added.

    I think that makes more sense.
