Okay, my email and WSC's original email related to the primary
function as defined at <http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/WikiLove>.
Requests for help are probably better handled by something other than
a heart icon at the top of every user talk page. I would say that the
appropriately named Help link at the left of every page is more likely
to be used for this.
