My first reaction to the Metro contest is that they have an awesome "jury
tool".  Check it out - maybe we could try for something like this for next

2nd - They have a claim to be the "World's largest" however tentative, and
we have a better claim.  We could ask them to cease and desist making the
claim, but they would likely just ignore us, and there's nothing we could
do about it.

A possibility would be some sort of cooperation for next year with Metro,
i.e. their very large readership could contribute to WLM.  With our limited
(but extensive) lists, that would likely be very difficult for them, but
maybe with a different competition on our part something could be done,
e.g. "Wiki Loves Your Hometown"
