There’s (broadly) two types of users who stumble into this site. Those who need help and those who are equipped to give it. The Finding Help page is for the former, the Community Support is for the latter.
The Ubiquity installer actually links directly to this site (well, the old static one) on one of the slides, suggesting users needing help come here. That’s a good reason why we’re seeing a bunch of people asking for help here.
If you (or anyone) has ideas for improving that (or indeed any) page in the Documentation category, go right ahead. I made all the posts there ‘wiki’ posts so they’re editable by us all. I welcome edits to these pages as they have been static for some years now!
When we set the site up initially, myself and @nhaines high-level reviewed the pages just to remove references to Ubuntu Touch, Unity8 and some other outdated content. But at any point they can be reviewed again. It’s one of the reasons we chose this platform, to make it easier for our community to help keep these documents current and relevant.
I have also set redirects for all the old pages to the (hopefully) right pages on the new site. I just looked at each of the pages on the wayback machine and set the right targets for any inbound links to those pages, to topics in the documentation category.
Here’s the mapping I did. As with everything on this site, if anything doesn’t look right, let me know or change it yourself.
