    In case you have not noticed, there is now an AC wiki at the top of the page. A great start but always more can be added. Some things are still being worked on I believe. Have a look and let us know what you think please? I see some edits have already been made :) (Thanks ExpertFlyer Voice - my spelling mistake :eek:)

    Thanks to tomh009, rehoult, AmericanGirl, Mikel, and milchap for their efforts on the wiki to get us going and to all future contributors. A tip of the hat to tomh009 who I know pushed for this to come to life. Thanks Tom!

    Hope this helps those searching for information.

    Look for this at the top of the page - you cannot miss it :)

    I like this format better than having stickies taking up space on page one of forum in that other place. Thanks for the heads up on the wiki.

    And that's exactly what we need. Our goal was to create a framework and a starting point, but there is a lot more knowledge in our forum membership than we had.

    If anyone feels that we need to add additional wiki pages, please let me know ...

    If only there was an offline edit capability it would give me something to do on some of my flights.

    How do you get changes made to the Wiki? I just noticed something missing under the "Lounge Access" section of the AC wiki. CIBC Aerogold Visa cardholders also have this option available to them for MLL access.

    In the top right corner you should see an edit button. Everyone should be able to edit a page.

    But it's so pretty -- I wouldn't want to mess it up. ;) Just finishing a nighshift at work, so not enough time to do now, but maybe tonight if someone else hasn't already gotten it done.

    I tweaked it a little bit. You actually have to buy their Club Travel Privileges card for $189/year -- it's not automatic access.

    Excellent - thanks for the correction and for tweaking - best you did the final edit as you have the knowledge! :) Thanks again.

    And that's exactly the idea behind a wiki -- anyone can contribute his or her knowledge to it (unlike a sticky thread that requires the OP to update it). Thanks for your help on making it better!

    Wiki page on Expiring miles has been updated to show the Aeroplan page area to find both your 1-year expiry and how to request your 7-year expiry, as well as show the sample email reply from Aeroplan.

    It's not obvious how one can edit the wiki, or is that privilege way above my status? The reason I'm asking is that I wanted to adjust the status benefits page, which currently says that Prestige gets luggage tags, but in fact they don't. (I was Prestige for the first 8 months of this year).

    Thanks for wanting to assist in the wiki! :)

    Everyone should be able to edit the wiki as far as I know (history shows who edited what) -- in the top right corner of a page there is an "edit" link ... what happens if you try to click on that?

    Once you edit it, before you save it, you can preview it to ensure it is satisfactory for you...

    If that does not work then I defer to tomh009 who originated the wiki.
