For me the current help documentation is a nightmare mainly because of its dipersion over dozen of pages. This is a huge disadvantage especially for newbies when looking for specific information. The minimum should be to have all help pages listed in one portal in order to have everything at the same place.
Then creation of help pages (help:XXXX) and wikidata pages (wikidata:XXX) can be done by everyone without any approval or discussion of the community. This leads to a lot of pages providing information but without any global structure and sometimes not reflecting the community usage.
My conclusions are the following:
- we need to define what are the pages recommended by the community as help documentation and reflecting the usage of this community.
- we need to organize these pages in an unique structure and to be able to have an overview of the pages in a portal. My proposition is to create a new topic list in Wikidata:Community portal regrouping all help pages and Wikidata pages dealing with help documentation.
- we need a Policy for creation of help pages and wikidata pages which forces to pass through a community approval in order to keep the global view of the documentation and to ensure that the documentation is reflecting the community usage.
