Page size

This page is large. Probably should be split into smaller, more digestible topics. It's almost doubled in length. --JeffLane 16:30, 29 December 2011 (PST)

Actually before I did the makeover, I thought about partitioning the page into several other 'sub-pages', maybe only putting the table of contents box on Help:Editing, then create Help:Editing/Page_Creation, Help:Editing/Editing_Toolbar, etc with their own information. I didn't do it because I didn't want to change the layout TOO much at once. —Mattshu 17:01, 29 December 2011 (PST)
It would seem to make sense to start with retaining the basic page creation and syntax, and then link to pages containing all of the specialized notice and entity templates. --JeffLane 18:08, 29 December 2011 (PST)
How's it look now? —Mattshu 18:42, 29 December 2011 (PST)
Definitely an improvement. --JeffLane 12:17, 30 December 2011 (PST)

Renaming pages

Is there a way to rename a page that has already been made? For example, I want to make a page for the 2014 standalone game Insurgency, but the original HL2 mod (a different version of the game) already has a page called Insurgency. I want to rename the mod page to something like "Insurgency (Mod)" so that a new page can be made called Insurgency. Is there a way to rename a page?

There is a move page feature. I'm not sure if it's restricted or not, but it's there. If you click the arrow next to the add to watchlist button (the star, up at the top bar, next to edit) there will be an option called move or similiar. - Dr. Orange (talk) 15:19, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
