Not sure if this qualifies as a 'bug', or maybe an 'oversight', 'error', 'mistake', or perhaps some other form of unfortunate occurrence, but the 'Beginner Basics' article appears to be blank / empty / devoid of content.
It appears to have been originally submitted in 2011 and last edited in 2013, so I would not think that it is merely 'under construction' or otherwise in the midst of an edit that would be the source of it's (then temporary) emptiness.

I believe that article uses html and is incompatible with the bbcode system. There used to be a "view original" button when we were transitioning all the older html-coded articles to the new versions.

That article was skipped because its layout looked the same as the rest of the site with all the blue bars and stuff. Also, it turns out it can't be edited. I'm hoping there's a way its format can be preserved. It certainly should be addressed. You get a blank page with no content when you click on "New Here?".

*looks at DL*
