Hi all -- We think people are just as important as investing terms and company descriptions. The stories of management, notable investors, and other key financial people will definitly be important to readers as they make financial decisions. Even though it's still very underdeveloped, you can see the potential of each company page by checking out the Netflix page:

We don't yet have a template yet, but it's going to be really close to a normal term page. Obviously "Expanded Definition" is not good for people, even though I used it on my Reed Hastings starter page back in August:

Regarding timeliness Paul nailed it:
some Fool somewhere is going to know

In fact, that should almost be our tagline. :) We strongly believe the Foolish community is more active and knowledgeable than any. As events occur, it only takes one Fool to see it and be willing to add to our knowledgebase.


Another point related to Paul's post:
Additionally, there could be a mailing list or discussion board (this one even) where those who are not editors could join the discussion and mention to the editors that an update is needed.

You're ahead of the curve once again Paul. :) Non-editor contributions (via boards of some flavor) will help us keep our eyes open for pages needing improvement and will help us find new member editors.

David G and the rest of the team are very bullish on a board for each page, and we're looking at the best way to implement this given our current boards software, which is a bit outdated. Something like this is coming in a future iteration, though it will come after the public launch.
