Why are help pages uncapitalized while pages in the main namespace are capitalized?
Shouldn't we decide on something...

I know this reply is very late, but should we move them to their correctly capitalized names?

Just bumpin' this up a bit so more people will see it in Recent Changes

I think they should be moved. On a side note, I noticed that a lot of help pages don't have capitalized sections either. Should we update that?

Now i'm just like, whatever.

@ErnieParke: Sure, it would probably be better to update the sections.

I'm going to capitalize all of them over the next few days, here's a list of the ones I've completed:

Details to Make an Article

I was wondering if I would be allowed to put some details about each section such as what each section is about and put notes next to the links talking about them.

There are different standards for different pages. I recall Veggie saying he'd take care of it sometime in the early to mid summer, but he's a little overdue.

Should there be some references on help pages linking to pages on the main MediaWiki website? I haven't seen any references here, so I'm not sure if they actually should be in this namespace.

What would you need references for? We don't need to verify any facts on this page, but to show how things are organized or done on the Wiki.
What sort of links were you thinking of?

Not really anything in specific - I was just wondering if they should be here, though.

Help! I don't know how to use references!

Okay so I read the Welcome page but I didn't understand what references are, or how to do it, or what a footnote is, or how they work! Can you help? Can you use different explanation for this! I'm really confused!

Should important pages like these have shortcuts? It would be better for people who need help in CP.

@Co0lcr34t10ns — It already had 2. They're S:HELP and S:HOWTO.

I meant the help pages themselves, not just the contents.

@Co0lcr34t10ns — I see. I do agree that the important help pages like Editing Pages do deserve a shortcut, as it would be nice to not type out the entire thing.
Purin2022 Mini User Icon.png Purin2022 | 💬Talk | 📝Contribs | 🐱Scratch 21:40, 1 February 2024 (UTC)
Alright, I'll go ahead and add them.

I should mention that these edits are bold and you should feel free to BRD.
