Make sure to ask them to not duplicate data sources. Don't analyze 400
URLs from the same site. Instead, analyze 400 URLS from different sites.

Make sure that they generate a machine-readable data file (tab
delimited, comma separated, or XML) and that you can show that data file
to the Microformats community. We need hard, demonstrable numbers so
nobody can assert that the data is not legitimate. More importantly, we
need to be able to verify any findings and prove their existence to
others in the community.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll update all the Microformalyze data
files tonight or tomorrow and upload your suggested changes to the wiki.
