Yeah, good try. I guess http://moon.google.com/maps?ll=-43.3,-11.2&spn=20,20 gets filtered?

yeah, the submit form will only accept URLS starting with "http://maps.google.com/"; i was trying to trick it :) looks like kjfitz adjusted it after the fact (with a super-sekrit tool that doesn't do that check)

I adjusted it. Managers have edit capability to the link text with no validation. But... with great power comes great responsibility. :)

And we're still debating whether to add additional categories to moon entries, or to segregate them in the single Moon category to avoid confusion.

And the admission tool should accept moon links now.
