* I have to agree with you, Eriorg. It would be much better to fix the existing help page than starting from scratch. (Also, it irks me to see 'ifwiki' instead of 'IFWiki' in the title, but that's a minor point.) I don't see that a redirect gains us much; I'd rather just point Ron to the real help page, and then delete this one. I'll edit Main Page slightly so that there's a link from Main Page to Help:Editing too, in case he looked there, didn't see anything, and assumed there was none. -- [[User:Dswxyz|David Welbourn]] 05:48, 11 January 2009 (PST)

Is this page really necessary, when there's already the Help:Editing page? (Note: How to edit ifwiki could still be a redirect to Help:Editing.)

I know that latter page is far from perfect -- it often mentions Wikipedia instead of IFWiki -- but I think it'd be easier to modify it than starting a new help page from scratch.

Another advantage of Help:Editing is that there's always a link to it ("Editing help") when we're editing a page. --Eriorg 04:50, 11 January 2009 (PST)
