  can you describe a bit which parts of Matlab Central you want most ?
As Josef says, Scipy uses mail forums, ask.scipy.org,
stackoverflow ...
to answer questions pretty fast. Do you / do other users want

- package reviews / comments / advertising --
    for new users, for experts ? Examples from Matlab ?

- overviews of major areas, along the lines of Wikipedia articles
    with links to detailed doc and recipes ?

I believe that Scipy experts get more points for new stuff
and for answering questions than they would for either of these.
Matlab has a different reward system:

    "I believe in Art, but my manager believes in money,
    and who am I to argue with such a baboon ?"
