/me is confused. What does that mean? Do you mean that you don't want to change the list chronologically, or just at all? Or does it mean that you want a clear record of who added what? That's doesn't sound right as you can keep those noted with update remarks. I'm so confused.

    Clear record. Hope that clarifies, but by way of explanation:

    I did not chose to edit suggestions from others into a node I created because that would be tantamount to plagarism or fraud. And yes, I could put edit markup in while aligning other contributions chronologically, but that might make the list less easily readable... and should OGB decide to use this one, would almost certainly make doing so more work for him.

      But why not just put a record on the bottom of what was added, and by who?

      What is OGB? I was going to post your poll idea today (and it would be less work to do so if all the options were in one node), but I noticed some links were broken e.g. the Turbo Pascal one, or likely to break soon e.g. the Z80 one.

      Also the "K&R" link goes to the 1988 edition, so it may be better to link to Wikipedia where possible. If you fix the links, it can be used in the near future.
