The Prediction Registry is a central repository for tracking data regarding predictions and the people who made them. (The reasons why this is useful seem intuitively obvious to me, but at the moment I'm having a hard time explaining it succinctly in a way that doesn't sound hopelessly academic. Will try again later. --Woozle 13:28, 1 Nov 2005 (CST))
Please read About the Prediction Registry for details on the purpose and rules of the Prediction Registry.
