Merge abilities help page with abilities dashboard
Where to find information about the abilities, is currently a bit confusing. There are too many pages. The help page for abilities, as well as the dashboard, present pretty much the exact same information, although the table on the dashboard is more informative than the list on the help page. I suggest replacing the list on the help page with the table currently sitting on the abilities dashboard, and then remove the dashboard altogether.
|Abilities help page||Abilities dashboard|
There is however one issue with this; the abilities dashboard serves one more purpose other than showing one self's abilities; it's also used for viewing the abilities of other site members. For instance, my abilities are listed here, by specifying my account's ID in the URL (
for=8046). This URL is available on each user's profile page, with that argument included in it.
I see 2 workarounds:
Allow specifiying an account ID on the help page; this will show the entire standard help page, the table for the user with the given ID, as well as a title over that table, which says what user this list is for. The table title is omitted if one's viewing one's own abilities.
Redirect to the help page (
/help/abilities) when attempting to load the abilities page for oneself (
/abilities), and otherwise show the current dashboard when visiting it with the account ID of another user (
