Placeholder / Back

Hi Blondin!
I saw you created multiple placeholder pages for the Current Business And Marketing Resources article. These all contain a link named "Back", which links to named article. I'm not sure if it is a good idea to call it that way, since a user will assume s/he's getting back to the page s/he was before, which isn't neccessarily the case, when the page was linked at another page than the Current Business And Marketing Resources article too. In case you'd like to stay with the "Back" scheme, I'd consider something like "Back to Current Business And Marketing Resources" instead, which contains more information for the user.
Another suggestion would be a category for these pages. Like Category:Current Business And Marketing Resources.
Last suggestion for upcoming similar projects: The creation of placeholder pages might lead into confusion. When a link in the Wiki is shown in red, anyone (who is familiar with Wikis) recognizes that there is no page "behind" that link and therefor avoids clicking it. While, in case a link is blue, people become snoopy and look, just to see a "this page is not ready yet" text. Both (red link and describing text) carry the same information, but the red link is more obviouse for the user and easier to filter. They don't have to click, wait for the page to load, read, get back, repeat... That way, it's also easier for you (the contributor/creator) to keep track which pages are already done and which still need to be created.
I hope some of this was useful for you and am looking forward to the upcoming additions to the Wiki =)

Easy Sync

Heyas Blondin!
It looked like Education Related Articles and the Education Related Articles section in Education were supposed to be the same? If so, I added an inclusion of the first page into the second, so you'll just need to update the list on the first page and it will automatically be updated in the second page to. In case they were not meant to be the same, please revert my edits. =)

Hm... just looked at the last edits of yours and it seems there are more pages thought to be like this?
I'm not quite understanding why there are these duplicates hosted but in case you'd like to sync them, you can use the same markup. E.g. add {{:Government Related Articles}} at the Government page, etc.
