Actually you can see all that stuff in the Codex history...
That aside though, I believe that the Codex should be as it is - a
repository for instructional information: not a place where people add
their contributions purely as a way to gain popularity or link juice for
their own websites. Some "contributions" amount to little more than a
link, to be especially harsh.
I'm all for a drive to document, and would help as much as I can (though
I'm more of a maintainer than a core documenter unless it happens to be
an areas that I know something about.) but I wouldn't like to see a
free-for-all where the effort is in fact to get your name attached to
as many docs as possible so that you become more popular.
 Using your in the general sense here, not your specifically.
 And again.
