You have two breeds of guides
1) well funded with dozens of paid editors and relationships with

Well, I think there are loads more types than this, really. If anything,
I'd say the most widespread type (at least in London) is the "me too" guide
site that essentially just lists the names and addresses of every business
in town and provides very little added value - basically just a vehicle for
ads and affiliate links. TBH this is what cityultima looks like to me,
though I may be missing the point.
I would be more than happy to help in keeping the
london guide alive,
but as the mailing list shows there does not seem to be anybody withing
open guides who is free to keep it going.
What is your particular interest in OGL? Do you have any plans for it
other than adding cityultima links to it like you tried to do on RGL?
I would rather see OGL completely shut down than see it turn into a linkfarm.
