I have no interest in the forums. I just don't have the time and interest to have much chit-chat with people in online forums. However, I think my almost 10 years of contributing to the GIMPS project, nearly nine of those as primenet user S01822, is not newbie ground[1]. I'm sure that ixfd64 will ask appropriate questions and use a variety of factors to determine if I am someone who really wants to contribute to the wiki versus wanting to spam it. I will wait for he/she to follow up on my request and proceed from there.

A bit off-topic: I also have experience running MediaWiki and spamproofing it. You don't have to remove the ability for users to create new accounts. It's pretty easy to install some addons that prevent users from spamming your wiki. I went through this same issue with one of my own wikis. I'd be glad to help with advice and guidance there if the appropriate parties are interested.
