Just a quick few replies to points and queries in this thread so far. (I've got to get back to finishing a mini-project for a Masters degree I'm
doing in my spare time).
I hope that members of ATS enjoyed this thread and (more importantly) that my article has helped highlight the existence of
the Tinwiki on ATS

Yes, the list is based on frequency of discussion in 963 UFO/SETI books that I went through during 2003-2006.
The relevant list of books, and each of the relevant references, is included in my
1,800 page UFO Chronology
, which I made available as a free download on the
Internet last year.
I'm not sure what you mean by "TW hits". Is this is a reference to hits on relevant pages on the Tinwiki? While it may be possible to compile the
relevant statistics based on views of each page of the Tinwiki at some point, most of the relevant pages did not exist when I started writing my
article. Only one or two of the relevant "Top 10" photo cases had a page on Tinwiki. I created the others quite recently. (Tinwiki is still very,
very incomplete - hence my desire to help promote awareness of it on ATS and encourage participation by more members of ATS).
AccessDenied – Item 7 in the list should have the date of 16 July 1952, as Dhatz has pointed out. The right date is given in the Tinwiki page I
Tezzajw – No offence to Iron Maiden fans was intended, but I still don’t like Iron Maiden’s music. Why listen to them when you can listen to a
musical genius like Britney Spears?
Zorgon – I'm all too aware that most of us (including me) have very limited time to participate on ATS. However, some members clearly devote a
considerable amount of time to participation in discussion on the forum and to research relevant topics - I'd just like to see a slightly higher
proportion of that time spent on editing the Tinwiki.
Timelike – I'm sure there are quite a few astronomical, and other, errors on the Tinwiki. The only way that these will be corrected is if more
members look at the Tinwiki and edit anything they know to be wrong. Perhaps you could be encouraged to make a relevant edit yourself in relation to
the errors that you mention?
