Cool Hugh :-) great ajaxi thing as well.
if you dont do this already it might make sense to also add

from your page yu say

"There is currently no a service to enable arbitrary contribution to
the contents. If you have significant data you would be prepared to
give us, then please conact us at the email below. On the other hand,
if you have time to help us provide such services, then please feel
free to offer your help. "

The easiest thing possible is certainly do these kind of queries


and integrate the results (but there is postprocessing to do on your
side) . While you do open yourself to spam in this way, you can always
blaime us for not filtering it out in case :-)
