Suppose a keen newbie wants to do something good here and hasn't found the help pages but wants to. Idea: type "help" in the search box! Darn it - nothing! Oh, well, find another website that's more friendly.
But there used to be a more friendly result. Help was a page on this wiki, which redirected to Help:Contents, with all the answers any newbie could want. The redirect had been created by a responsible contributor who had been here for several years and had made hundreds of edits.
What happened? A relative newbie deleted the redirect. No reason given. Is that user-unfriendly or just plain stupid?
