Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

For example, if I paste the link http://stackoverflow.com/help/on-topic in a comment, change the anchor text to "Help Center: What topics can I ask about here?" I think this should be done the same way as when a link to a question is posted in a comment, question, or answer.

This is already available to a certain extent. All you have to do is append the last part of the URL to the magic [help] comment. The [help] comment is converted in to a "help center" link automatically.

So,

Obviously the comments are site aware, so if you make it on meta it'll point to the meta help center.

[help/on-topic] is converted to : help center. – Lix Aug 22 '13 at 19:18

Your comment seems to be precisely why this fails to answer the question. He doesn't want it converted to "help center". That's ugly, non-descriptive, and grammatically incorrect. – Cody Gray Aug 23 '13 at 4:35
    
@CodyGray I agree, I think the anchor text needs to be specific for on-topic vs off-topic instead of both merely saying just "help center", and if I don't find a question about it here on MSE or MSO, I'm going to ask for that as a feature request. – user163250 Jun 22 '14 at 21:40
