Mortalpawn should been a wikimaster! He have reworked the mainpage into portals wich is now a LOTS easier for new users to navigate around the wikipage (no more big list of links). Waow, what a changes!

The Category tags is now a lots more in use (why did we not use it on rating pages to get these page automatic listed?).

I give Mortalpawn correct, the old "Contents/Index" now been phased out, and change the sidebar link to "Category:Index" instead. It simply easier to use this page, since users just can add a that tag into thier page, if needed (and then it automatic listed into the index page).

Otherwice I redirect the page into the new index in few days. But I guess the Admins should look into the first to checkout!

Look also on the talk:Main_Page link.

Nolinks on Content/Index is changed yet, but is now no longer in use.

  I went a little nuts over the last week making massive edits (several hundred I think).  However the new Portals and Categories provide the basic structure that should allow the wiki to grow.  The old structure was not properly supporting the size of the Wiki in my opinion.

  See the following page for the new Wiki structure:

  In addition to the sidebar change (Contents needs to point to [[:Category:Index]] now... I think we need to add a link to the Community Portal on some of the locked "About" and "Help" pages, since the community portal is the page that provides the overall structure.

  If you are creating a new topic - please link it into one of the existing portals and also include the appropriate [[Category:{Portalname}]] statement at the bottom of your new page (where {Portalname} is the name of the portal - see the community portal for more info).

  I hope you enjoy the new structure - now get out there and create some more content!
