just about the technicalities: I tried the main page with 2-3 topics and the
result was "no such title". Categories I did not venture into, because to
find the right wording/spelling requires familiarity in our lingo and I had
in mind to educate the innocent(ignorant) by passers outside Brunoistic or
Schmidthuberistic  use of vocabulary (and myself also).
Those 'blog=like' concentrates of one's positions on topics will be much
better than the spread-and-cut remarks in reply-posts containing 6 - 3000
preliminary texts ea. While I find it useful to let the prerequisites run,
it makes it difficult to concentrate on the issue on hand - way above. Or:
vice versa.
I think the use of this 'wiki'  would reduce the redundancy and increase the
reasonability of the list by knowing what we are talking about.
(This last sentence refers to myself).

I think what you started is of a huge benefit to all of us.
