The admin noticeboard is a central page for moderators and administrators to be notified of issues that require their attention. Anyone can directly contact any site managers, but posting here increased visibility to the issue and it may be addressed more promptly.

Sign (using four tildes: ~~~~) when posting an issue or use the signature button at the top of the edit box. Indent replies with : for easier page readability.

Use of category pages as hubs for content discovery

I have been trying to clean up and update various pages recently, particularly navboxes and categories relating to the build menu ingame. I've also combined the "objects" pages with the categories they belong to. I've primarily done this to avoid duplicating content and linking - I find it simpler to navigate, and it avoids having a "hub" page showing up in a category next to individual items.

If there is value in keeping "objects" and "resources" separate at some point, then we can break them apart again. However, I think that grouping related items together using the tables that have been used so far under different headings is adequate. This structure should be perfectly fine for the foreseeable future.

I acknowledge that this has effectively cleared edit history & attribution, however, I felt that as the pages themselves are still quite barebones that it would be best to do this immediately. Feel free to revert my changes, I've been fairly good about keeping edits broken apart.
