Can we have some visible comment on the wiki page for encouraging writers? Something like:

"Editors/writers are welcome. If you would like to participate, even with a few words, do not hesitate to contact .... <email>. Write protection was introduced because of increased Wiki spam. We apologise for the inconvenience."

Idea behind such comment is to let people know, that the wiki is not locked because only "the privileged ones" should add contents. It looks like that now. That would degrade whole purpose of the wiki. The comment should make it obvious that "all people with good will" are welcome. Feel free to paraphrase the message.

Communication with webmasters/current wiki editors is kind of authentification, even weak, but better than nothing. Therefore the message will still not encourage spammers as they would be identified.

On the other hand, it is nice to see "brave ones" asking for write permission last days :-)

Or is it not necessary to have such message? What do you think?
