This page is so out of date it is ridiculous.

I don't think Wipipedia should keep redirecting people to Wikipedia as a resource:

  1. Wikipedia is beginning to fall into disfavour and some people are deliberately avoiding it now.
  2. Wikipedia help structure changes every now and then and we have no way to keep up with it.
  3. There are so many wikis around that it is no longer the case that if you want to edit here, you have already learnt some of the basics on Wikipedia - or want to.

We could redirect to pages at media wiki, where the content is probably more stable (and stale), with our own 'easy' versions here. The only slight issue with that is that the Meta interwiki link seems to have dissapeared, so we can't do things like [[Meta:Help:Reader|Reader Help]] to get to .

Increasingly, the Wikimedia software is being amended and ours isn't. I have tried to use features such as <poem></poem> and <ref></ref> from Wikipedia and they don't work here. Thus we can't rely on Wikimedia help files.--Taxwoman 17:16, 17 May 2008 (BST)
<poem> is part of 1.14 vertion of mediawiki. and <ref> need the cite extenton --Roguebfl (talk) 08:05, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
