Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Currently you can write [help/on-topic] in a comment, which changes to help center, and there's some other similar help short-links (see this).

But not all of them work - [help/someone-answers] doesn't change to help center, it just stays that text (and no, I wasn't trying to force accepting an answer down someone's throat, just elaborating on someone else' hopelessly underspecified comment).

Can we change this so all [help/...] links changes to
[help center](

It should be fairly trivial to change it to the applicable link only if that link exists.

Or is there a reason we don't want to do this?
