Killing off the Development page

Post by AF » 15 Jun 2015, 16:08

I intend to kill off the development page. I may be the one who got it put up there but with the addition of Wiki, and the lack of maintenance, it's redundant and doesn't work how it should.

Instead I'm intending to rename the wiki menu item to "Development Wiki", and remove the Development menu item, so that we can instead focus on improvements to the main wiki page.

I'm also thinking of removing 'Help' for the same reasons and renaming wiki to "Documentation", thoughts?

:thumbsup:

A single entry point for all docs sounds great. Personally I'd declare the wiki "technical documentation for content and engine developers" and start purging stuff like 'how to play' or 'strategy and tactics', but I guess that might be a bit aggressive.

Strategy and tactics already has no connection to the development part of the wiki. But the wiki also has general stuff to help new players, and its worth keeping generic rts help there, I think, but non-generic strategy and tactics should be inside games own wiki page/section.

I guess FLOZi knows most about the wiki entry points.

I'm all for restructure of the current navigation links and pages in the name of simplicity. I also think "Report a bug" should be moved.

What do you guys think about dropdowns? We could keep the important pages easily accessible without flooding the primary navigation.

I would arguably just keep the 'Wiki' link. Call a spade a spade.

Great, once my current PR on GitHub is merged I'll make the change
