- FreedomVerification, Builder, Translations: I would say these are projects, so I think it's more logical to put them under Projects.

I did consider this, but they are projects which have moved past 3 or 4
pages sitting round the wiki. They have the potential (and in the case
of FV already does) have lots of pages, and so i thought they could live
by themseves.

I don't think the number of pages is really relevant, except if there are practicle reasons. I try to look at it from the perspective of a new user/contributor, who would probably find the distinction between freedom verification and other projects a bit odd.

- IRC: it's a community resource, so why not place it under Community? (Same goes for mailing lists.)

I left them because they already existed.
If you think they should be merged into other areas thats worth

If you're going to clean up the wiki, you might as well go all the way. :)

I'm also thinking of merging these pages:
Main/CurrentProjects and Main/HowToHelp

CurrentProjects is a dry (and possibly overwhelming) list of things to do. HowToHelp is a friendly invitation to join the community. It has items that aren't really projects, like joining the mailing list. I think it's better to make HowToHelp more inviting (more entry-level tasks, like "Put a button on your blog") and more visible (on the homepage, Community-page or in the menu).

I should add a 'cleanup' page where we can add things we think are out
of date - CurrentProjects is certainly a good example.

Good idea. A clear list of what needs cleaning up in the wiki could also provide an easy entry point for new people wanting to contribute.

And want to rename these:

And move these:
Main/CurrentProjects to Projects/Current

Is it useful to have a current projects page? Are there projects that are not current? Is it clear which projects are actively being worked on (a.k.a. current) and which aren't?

It used to be HowToHelp listed all projects, and CurrentProjects listed
things that were being worked on.

I see. Like I said earlier, I think we should keep HowToHelp as the friendly invitation. If it's mostly clear what projects are being worked on I'm in favor of CurrentProjects, if not, then it would just be confusing. Maybe we could have a guideline that project leads or deputies should regularly update a news section for their project, so we know which projects are active, with the added advantage that we get an idea of the progress that's being made.
