    I added an entry on super q-Schur algebras in hopes of luring people over from a MathOverflow question.

    It might be good to provide a link back to MO?

    I have no idea about the subject, but added the link you provided :)

    Cool, Ben, thanks.

    I believe if this practice is followed, a site like MO interacting with a wiki -- one producing the questions and piece o answers, the other archiving the polished answers -- the result would be very worthwhile. Much more than both sites together but on their own would be.

    On the other hand, despite some effort I think so far not a single user from MO who followed a link to the nLab (and we know from responses that a few have) has left any traces here.

    Adding pages to the nLab inspired by stuff on MO with links back to MO, might help integrate the communities. If you want something, give it away. If we want MO to link to the nLab, we should make links from the nLab to MO.

    It's not that I want so much that MO links to the nLab.

    I would enjoy if people who found a useful bit of information on their MO question after following a link to the Lab would in turn add other information they got at MO into the Lab.

    It would be great if there is were a wiki that systematically accumulated all the knowledge and information that flows through MO, currently without being properly retained there.
