Help Pages Lost in the Wilderness

This help page, like so many others, would be much more useful if something -- anything -- actually linked to it.

Seriously. This is a big, big problem on this wiki: help pages are nigh impossible to find. Whoever's set these things up needs to chain the damn things together. -- Repowers 15:17, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

I set this page up to meet a specific need. I'd be happy to link it into an exiwting structure... if there was an existing structure. We have 3 separate fairly-stubby Help/intro pages. Merging them has been on the collective to-do list for more than a year. -Derik 15:49, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I keep meaning to get around to that and not quite doing it. The original help structure was written almost entirely by me and is contained in just a handful of pages in the "Help" namespace, linked together by Help:Contents which is linked to in the sidebar of every page on the wiki. Since then some older "Transformers Wiki" namespace pages were rediscovered and worked on, and others have been built. But there is no unifying structure for the new stuff, and a lot of it is redundant with the Help pages. I will try to recommit myself to sorting it out. Does anybody have an opinion on which namespace we should use? I think all the policy/help stuff should be in the same namespace. I personally prefer "Help" because it's short, but I'm not deeply attached to it. Considering the Community portal is stuck in "Transformers Wiki" namespace, perhaps that would be better. Unless we can move it. I don't really know. --Steve-o 21:15, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
That reminds me... Weren't we going to change the name of this place from Teletraan-1: The Transformers Wiki to Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki or Teletraan-I: The Transformers Wiki to match the correct spelling? --FortMax 21:50, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
We cant' do that, you have to put in a request for a wikia tech to do that.
I think we're planning to put in such a request in order to change our local timezone (Rhode Island instead of Switzerland or whatever,) figure out which spelling we prefer, make a note on my User-talk page and I'll add that to the request when it goes thru. (Note: I vote for just 'Teletraan I,' no subtitle, but i don't expect to win that.) -Derik 22:31, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
