This page gives the basic descriptions of the purposes of all pages that link to the community navigation template above.
The admin portal page is primarily for administrators since it contains links to tools which non-administrators do not have access to. If you wish to contact an administrator personally, please see our list of administrators.
The talk page is where admins can request help from other admins if they need help to settle a dispute or is unsure how to proceed with an issue. It is also used to discuss matters where non-administrators might have no real say, though these discussions are rare and should be kept to a minimum.
The community portal is where the C.Syde's Wiki community come together to organise and discuss projects for the wiki.
The development portal is where the community keeps up to date with minor updates and discussions about templates and general site maintenance.
The talk page is where you can announce what you've been up to, something you've noticed and to give other contributors a heads up!
The page is about how the existence of C.Syde's Wiki came to be.
The main page itself.
The administrators' noticeboard is where C.Syde's Wiki editors and readers can request assistance or input from members of the administrative team.
Matters brought up here may be discussed by administrators and editors, or may be referred as needed to the community discussions forum, the admin portal talk page, or another appropriate venue.
The administrators' dashboard is a centralised space that highlights the most important tools used by administrators.
Because only administrators and discussion moderators are able to view the dashboard, there may be some debate as to whether a replica should be included as part of the community portal navigation.
But because it is just a replica of the Special:AdminDashboard, and it is not the dashboard itself, it doesn't really seem to matter. This version can be accessed by all users.
The main forum index page is where the C.Syde's Wiki community can get an overview of the latest forums and community discussions.
The portals category.
A collection of pages devoted to the management of a specific topic or family of topics within C.Syde's Wiki; and, simultaneously, a group of editors who use those pages to collaborate on encyclopedic work. It is not a place to write encyclopedia articles directly, but a resource to help coordinate and organise the writing and editing of those articles.
The discussion pages attached to a project page are a convenient forum for those interested in that project.
