Which ones? And what advantage would they gain from being Help Pages?

minichessemouse - Ahoy there me barnacle!

The Alternative writing workshop page is in serious need of updating. most of the groups it mentions have mostly died out, such as the spav=ced out guide. Personally I think the UnderGuide as a whole needs a revamp and the entry ist in it needs clering out. but thats just my smiley - 2cents

Some good points there, mini. The Alternative Writing Workshop is on the list of pages that need updating, but I don't know enough about that part of h2g2. Unless someone offers to update it, your best bet is to bother the UnderGuide volunteers about it.

Just read through the AWW page, its more than just the UnderGuide apparently, but in the two years i have been on hootoo i have never seen the other groups there (with the exception of smiley - thepost picking or publishing anything from the AWW. I think even the UG is mostly gone, there arent many UG volunteers active anymore. I dont have the technical expertise to update things (plus my spelling can be 'interesting') but i see a lot of newbies sticking stuff in the AWW and then smiley - elvising when there are no or few replies. The AWW is stagnating and full of stuff that is just sitting there having no reviews, or nowhere else to go. Its a little lost review forum and its in need of some help.

The UG is still there, minichessemouse.

I actually helped to write the AWW, along with other people. If you think it's in need of an update now, you should've seen it then. You're right that parts of it are out of date. Fiction Central and the SoG no longer exist (and there was no reason for the SoG to ever exist, really). However, all of those had to be included in the original listing, mostly because when the UG sort of took shape, other groups were worried that they would be crowded out from the AWW, and we didn't want to send that message. Actually for a while, we had a very fruitful partnership with AGG/GAG/CAC-C (and I haven't quite given up hope on them).

There is a process to remove old entries from the AWW, called minesweeping (basically what the scouts do, but generally in a more massive way). If you're interested, you can always become an UnderGuide volunteer and help to revitalize the AWW.
