What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

The Help Center went through a very major face lift recently and got a new URL.

All sites are now linking to it by "help" link both on top and in the bottom of every page.

However, the footer contains "contact us" link as well which leads to the old help center.

Doubt it's on purpose, all roads better lead to Rome. :)

Yes, but which Rome? I have lots of bronze broadswords that I could stand to sell! –  Andrew Barber Jun 5 '13 at 6:46

@Andrew you're right, silly me! Updated my post now. Any Vorpal Sword to sell? ;-) –  Shadow Wizard Jun 5 '13 at 6:52

We are aware of the problem and we consciously left it in for now.

It's a temporary measure while we simplify the old help center into a real contact us feature.

There are forms there that we want to keep but as a separate entity.


Edit: it's now done

Thanks. As for "contact us" why not simply meta.stackoverflow.com/help/other? –  Shadow Wizard Jun 5 '13 at 8:20
    
@ShaWizDowArd The functionality of the old help center is due partly to the fact that it lists the most common issues people contact us about. Some of those things are problems users can solve themselves, so we do want to provide on-site instructions in those cases. For the rest, it speeds things up on our end if emails we receive have a clear title that identifies what type of issue is occurring. As Sklivvz said, we're looking to simplify things a little on that page to make it easier on everyone. –  Laura Jun 5 '13 at 13:31
    
It's now fixed, feel free to mark status-completed. :) –  Shadow Wizard Jul 23 '13 at 13:49
