I would like to let you know , how this Index page formed.
At the very beginning, I just use the Special Page's function , All page
Name space :Main
Then put every link into Index page.
Because of wiki is a system , anyone can edit and create a new page . It
growing up everyday.
So, after this , my routine job is check the "Recent Change " everyday ,
put the new page , into Index page.
I can tell you what the way I used, to make most of page organized.
But I don't think I can arbitrary judge these pages is outdated .
I 'd rather say, some are popular and others are not.
