Template:Finding your way around
To understand MeritBadge.org, it is easiest to think of this website as having two types of pages: pages that are part of the encyclopedia itself, and pages of the community (used by contributors to help build and operate the encyclopedia).
To find your way around the encyclopedia, either enter a term into the search box on the left side of the screen, or go to MeritBadge.org's table of contents.
MeritBadge.org's community pages include instructions, help pages, policies, guidelines, discussion forums, places to make requests, pages to report problems, and user pages. These are all pages which we use to develop the encyclopedia and to communicate with each other in that mission. Some directories to help you find your way around the community are:
- MeritBadgeDotOrg:Department directory - what gets done where.
- MeritBadgeDotOrg:Community Portal - MeritBadge.org's hub of activity. It includes announcements, news, ongoing projects, and task lists. This is where to find out where your help is needed most.
