Most Wikis have a type of "community place" that is used to discuss policies, general needs of the site, and to find technical as well as editorial help. This is either done at a place called [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:VP Village pump] or at the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Community_Portal Community Portal]. Since in our case the Community Portal is used for other purposes I combined the function of those two sections into one.
