Hmm, I thought the Macromates wiki is open-access...? I'm able to edit it, anyway. If it's restricted, I don't remember how I got access. Anybody know what the policy is for their wiki?

You don't like the theme and so the community should band together to build a second, redundant wiki? Just use GreaseMonkey (or something similar) and problem solved.

I thought you were asking for contributions to a community wiki. That's quite different from a "personal resource". There are already sites like that, such as http://tm2tips.tumblr.com/. Also I don't think being a control freak is compatible with the wiki model. It's nice that you want to share your work, but I still don't see the point of a community wiki when there's already an official one.
