You still might want to consider deleting any program pages that lack content, so that people can add them easily as they want. Otherwise, this looks like a great resource!
We've expanded on the idea of an econ admissions wiki and and have created EconSpace at www.econspace.org. Many thanks to ewaysurfer for all of the technical support; it's been a great collaboration so far. I've tried to add a decent amount of content and have already transfered over everything from the old wiki. The site is running off Mediawiki, so editing is exactly the same as on Wikipedia.
Regarding the site, I encourage all of you to contribute. As I've said elsewhere, the reason for making this site a wiki is so that many people can make contributions - large or small - and keep adding and updating information. EconSpace really will become what everyone makes of it. And since I've mentioned shifting priorities before as a reason that econ websites typically die off, I'll also say that I'll be adding less content for the next few weeks as I begin studying for my comprehensive exams (starting today, if you're curious). asquare's post the other day about the site for undergraduate admissions is a great step forward for high school students, and I hope that EconSpace can fill that void in general for the economics field and profession. At a minimum, it should become a resource for information on PhD admissions and the job market. No matter what, this will be the resource we collectively create.
As for the department pages that are currently up (as of 7/6/07), the following pages have content (most of which is nothing but placement records):
SUNY- Stony Brook
The rest of the pages were created and have links to them because I added the basic sections for additional information. In retrospect, I probably should have left them blank so that it was clear what pages have real content (blue link = content, red link = no content).
Finally, we're still looking at ways to make the site evolve. If you have recommendations, feel free to post them here, send a PM, or post it on the comments section of the wiki.
Moderators - Can we make this thread a 'sticky'?
There have been a few requests for data advice recently, so I added a new page to Main Page - Econspace listing some of the data sources that were mentioned. If you have any more favorites, feel free to bring them there. I've also added a "library" which contains links to some free (and legal) economics books (mostly texts), which you might also like to add to.
