For the greek language, a list of 100 articles was prepared, however a user
took an initiative and added some more, so now we' re at about 130, hope
that's OK.

It was hard finding all-new subjects that had solid foundations as articles
in en (not having problems, having references etc), so for the largest
wikipedias in some categories the main task will be expansion and not
creation of articles.

We'll be ready with the rules and post them at Meta tomorrow, they will
most probably be exactly the same with last year, with the sole exception
that each user can only win in one category, to avoid having users "sweep"
many categories.
