Here's my idea, and I think we will need a separate thread for this:

As I understand it, the only semi-official site we have for information on Avatar is the Pandorapedia website hosted by 20th Century Fox.  As we know, some (much?) of the Na'vi in there is incorrect. 

Would it be possible for those who are part of Learn Na'vi to collaborate with Karyu Pawl, James Cameron, and Fox to correct at least the Na'vi on the website?  Is this an offer we (not me! I don't know enough) could make to, say, Paul Frommer, who might be able to contact the others for permission? 

Would anyone in Learn Na'vi be interested?
and this page :)

On the Avatar meeting in Berlin Paul said, that he was surprised by ASG. After Avatar launch, he was told that ASG is available, he did know it so he bought it at Amazon - and wasn't happy about Na'vi names used in the book. And Pandorapedia seems to be based on ASG. If I remember correctly, he contacted authors to make correction, but I don't remember if something happened...

The ASG and Pandorapedia were (in my opinion) a rather poorly supported attempt by Fox to cash in on the franchise early on while they could. Both have been pretty much ignored by them, since. Lightstorm has a guy responsible for the online aspects of their various franchises from the production side, but there hasn't been an effort to revise anything yet.

Reviving this thread isn't really necessary since any efforts to correct the online material will have to come from LSI.
