Main Wiki link goes to a strange place


Main Wiki link goes to a strange place

The main link to the Wiki in the Documents menu at the top of ldraw.org goes to Category:Articles, which redirects to User:Mikeheide/Bookmarks. I think it would be better if it linked to the Wiki's main page (or wiki.ldraw.org, which redirects to the main page).

I deleted the reference snce the wiki is listed elsewhere in the menus.

Just for explanation so nobody is angry or confused:
That was caused by an yet-incomplete cleanup by me which I started and was not finished with yet, so it was my "fault":
To me, a "Category:Articles" did not make any sense at all, because every page in a Wiki is an Article.
So each and every page would have to carry [[Category:Article]] in it, which would be just redundant.
I checked what articles were in that category and noticed that in it just a small handful of pages were present,
some special selection which, when checking their history, Mike had created.
Such a small, manually picked selection would be tedious to maintain and would not automatically grow.
Compared to that, a category automatically grows when an article is added (like Category:Terms or Category:Software or
Category:Tutorials). I noticed that that selection was a "things Mike didnt want to lose". That's why I moved it to
User:Mikeheide/Bookmarks. It can still be cleaned up further.
I had spent Easter monday to do some spring cleaning in the Wiki, and it still can need some more Smile

Yes, that's good, that should be the default landing page.
That's also where you get when you click the big red top left Wiki logo.
