The short answer is that there's just not enough potential
for the whole Learn page and menu.
The general format for the website, is for the main menu item page to
be a brief introduction to everything else in the menu. But if we
take away the tutorials, look at what's left in that section - one
sentence. I seem to recall we did try it without the tutorials
listed, but the page looked really sad....
What's wrong with a short introduction/overview page? The whole point of
giving an overview is to be concise, if the "overview" page already has
a lot of content it's likely some of the less noticeable links to other
menu items will be overlooked.
Duplicated content as we have now certainly can't be the solution as
it's a maintenance nightmare and unnecessary burden for translators
(case in point: I've never even thought to check for tutorial links on
the "Learn" page - who'd expect them there if we have a dedicated
"tutorials" page? - and that's the whole reason for the broken links).
Except for the FAQ, which is a huge page, I'd probably be open to
condensing the entire Learn menu and its contents, into a single
page....maybe under Community? I've been wishing we could put the
Gallery as a main menu item, for a long time. And removing Learn menu
would allow for that. Maybe the FAQ could be a separate page under
I'd not do that for several reasons:
* Putting everything on one page is a mess and makes it hard for users
to find specific items.
* Community is unrelated to documentation. While the community creates
the documentation and certain tutorials it does not make them a
community feature like a gallery or a forum.
