What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

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. –  Cupcake Jun 22 at 21:40
