A big part for me deciding where I want to contribute was this page on the Boinc wiki:

According to the bottom of the page, it was last modified a little more than a year ago and has no publications from 2013 and only a handful from 2012 (as opposed to what looks like 20+ per year before that).

I was hoping it was like normal Wikipedia and I could make an account and update it myself, but adding accounts is not an option. There is no contact information there so I don't know who to contact. The more this page is updated the more work is shown off and the more attractive Boinc is.

Can anyone help with this?

We have blocked off account creation on the wiki due to excessive spam infestations. It was becoming more than a day job for three people, to remove all the crud from there. We just couldn't keep up.

If you want an account, you can ask David Anderson for one. His email address can be found on the personnel page on the main BOINC web page.

But a lot of the publications there were added by the project administrators, many of whom already have an account. If they don't see the need to update the list, then where are you going to get the information from?
