Help panel: display on non-existent deleted pages in reading modes
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

This is just an idea.

An article written by an inexperienced editor is often deleted. Maybe we can offer the users a way to get helped by displaying the help pane on pages that were deleted in reading mode? Or maybe on all non-existent pages? https://cs.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Horst_admin is one example

what do you think?

Thanks, @Urbanecm (and thanks, @kostajh -- if you hadn't pinged me, I wouldn't have seen this).

I think this is a good idea. We've actually also been considering just showing the help panel on all pages. We'll remember this option as we address this issue of additional help panel exposure.
