Everything must be easy to find[edit source]

  • Some links will take you away from this set of pages, but everything must leave it easy to get back.
  • Minimum path length vs uncluttered pages. I am trying to achieve this on a main page with 5 main branches by using collapsible boxes and transcluded subpages. It may work. · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk): 13:39, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
