As usual, I am User:Gwern.
On the side-topic of a mailing list - I really think that is too
heavy-weight. We want people to create a login (for the ML) and go
through the ML, just to get wiki access?
A view I've long held is that wikis only work because they are easy to
contribute to. When you ask someone for a favor, you don't make them
jump through hoops. Even trivial extra steps cut down the # of people
willing to do it.
There must be methods that put as little a burden on eager would-be
newbie editors. Just posting the emails of people with
account-creation abilities is the easiest way I can think of.
