Well, sir, general cowork: Contributions, extensions, new topics (maybe). (Can not understand much from your question, though. It' s a theme-centered wiki, obviously!?)

No one knows who you are, so he wants to know what your area of expertise is. Most people typically have one thing that they really want to fix, and he was trying to figure out what yours is.

Are you a programmer? Can you write a highly optimized FFT?

Or are you good with number theory, and want to contribute (say) to the Aliquot sequence page?

Or perhaps (say) you want to add something to the Twin Prime Search page?

What will your contributions be?

Hi, my name is Sutton Shin and I would like an account on the Mersenne Forums.
My plans are to remove unhelpful text and write an article on possible things people can do to speed up prime finding process.

Default question

How in the world are you expected to create a new wiki page? Would I be banned if I tried to reorganize the wiki main page? It looks... disorganized

I agree that MediaWiki isn't very user friendly when it comes to creating new pages. One way is to simply enter the URL of the page you wish to create (e.g., http://mersennewiki.org/index.php/New_page).

There is no need to be concerned about getting banned as long as your edits are in good faith (i.e., not vandalism). Don't worry if you do accidentally b0rk something; it's very easy to revert back to a good version.

Look at the discussion for the main page that I did a while back. I was hoping to make the graphic clickable, but that never happened (there are too many modifications to the wiki software.)
