I think there should be a Portal page (sans the :xxx) that explains how
all the Portal:xxx pages play together. After all, anyone who is at the
Portal:xxx stage of finding things is probably new, and an explanation
of how the Portal:xxx pages work together must be useful.

That would be Help:Portal, but in general navigation between portals should
be self documenting (intuitive). IMO, if it has to be explained then it is
failed design.

Also, as you move to the different Portal:xxx pages, the menu of other
Portal pages on the sides change in a not-so-very-useful (to me anyway)
way. I did not note any logic to it. Other Portal:xxx pages came and
went. So you could get to other Portal pages sometimes from the links on
the right, and sometimes only by navigating back to some other page that
had the Portal link you want.

It should be always from the links on the right and those links should be
always in the same place. I like to have that navigation right at the top and
that is how I change portals when I have time.

Problem is that there is related content that should go first and then all
other places that visitor may want to see, and of course there is always
something else that is "the most important" for the particular topic.

There are also design issues that are not solved and I hope that we will do
that before a lot of content is added :)
(Otherwise only scripts will help us to fix problems.)

BTW, any detailed input is welcome, so that we can see what to do.
