It is not my intention to split *all* wiki pages.
I splitted ProjectsUsingMercurial and TipsAndTricks.

I do find TipsAndTricks much more easier to edit as it is now.
The larger tricks made it very difficult to main.

I am also available to help editing TipsAndTricks, if that's the
problem.

So, could you please explain what you intended to do on TipsAndTricks
and why/how you failed?

I'm not going to revert right now, but will hold off from editing the wiki for
now.
