I assume it's the same with our wiki though I haven't actually checked myself, but usually editing the MediaWiki interface pages requires admin rights. We really don't want people stuffing around at will with the main interface. I also agree with Andrew about the Billabong page. It's meant to be a page where people can make suggestions and ask for help or whatever and we don't want to make it harder for people to find the central discussion/help page if they need it. I don't see how it not being used much makes a difference. There's only a small number of people who even have accounts with edit rights and the website is still very young so you could justify removing just about all the sidebar links by saying they're "not currently used much". As Andrew said, we want to build the membership and as the active members grow the central discussion page will become more useful and important and in the interim it's there for anyone who needs it.
