OK, all things considered I think it's better kept 
separate, without the kanji.

The Google n-grams show it getting 26k (cf 皆さん/みなさん getting 50M between them). Looking at links I can see plenty involving gaijin, but also plenty of use by Japanese bloggers, etc. I guess it's a minor slangy sort of thing to say.
At 26k in the n-grams I don't want to ignore it. It could just be a note on the 皆さん entry, but I don't want to go overboard on really a minor variant.) If it comes to the crunch I guess it could be left out altogether.

on 2nd thoughts, do people actually say "みんなさん" at 
all? With the さん there, it seems like it can't really be 
read as "みんな". I don't think it should be merged back, 
but I don't think it needs its own entry either.

The first 3 hits I get for "みんなさん" are all foreigners 
asking if it's correct, with native speakers replying it

I agree with Rene.

This was raised by a (native speaker) teacher of Japanese, who found students were taking the entry to mean that みんなさん was a legitimate reading of 皆さん. They weren't really paying attention to the "ik" tag. I could have held the line about the "ik" but I felt it was better to be responsive.
If no-one else agrees, we can switch back, and I'll let him know.
