I'll begin - editing wiki now.

editing wiki now.
Done with edit. Added column for links.  As of now I added link for MB Plat. Not sure if forums allow non dansdeals.com links. If not then it should be removed.
If they are allowed, I have put in dansdeals links wherever possible.
For PRG, Delta, and blue cash/preferred i put up the Creditcards.com links as those are better than the default links on http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=8028.0, and there is a dansdeals.com link for them anyway.

Thanks. You're learning quick how to edit. I like the idea but didn't do it yet because I wanted the wiki editor to be too cluttered before its mostly filled out. Anyways, now is a good time time to start adding links, though I may suggest linking up the name of the card itself to the sign up pages. And by the "link" category we can add the threads on ddf that discuss the card.

Yearly spending bonus (e.g. PRG = $30K = 15k MR)
That and retention bonuses (6K SWA points, cat 1-4 Hyatt night, 2 club passes on United, etc)
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Done for now.  Still a ways to go with the links and retention bonuses, but I'm burned out and my spreadsheet finally finished calculation so I gotta get back to work.

Dan - by retention I assume you mean built in yearly bonuses and not PUTPAC for retention?

Sorry Dan, I didn't realize it was a profitable link.
