Can I use the namespace "Help" unique to my Wiki? Either the namespace "Help" will always be linked to the Wiki Help?

The Help namespace mirrors the Shared Help at by default. But you can add something of your own to your wiki's mirror if you like. It will show up on top of the Shared Help article.
You can also opt out off the Shared Help entirely. Then it's all up to you. I'm not aware of any wiki that does that however and it's not something I would recommend.
If there's an article in the Shared Help that looks incorrect or incomplete, you can edit it! is a wiki like any other after all. A word of caution though: The Shared Help is heavily monitored by Wikia staff and edits that take the help wiki in a direction that's orthogonal to their plans, might not be appreciated.
It seems to be unproblematic to add new pages to your wiki's Help namespace. Creating new pages - like adding an intro to existing ones - has no effect on the Shared Help. --  pecoes  08:44, May 01, 2012 (UTC)
