This is about truth in advertising. If a link for a board in v3 is
called "Tutorial" and all it has is the v2 status, the link is
completely worthless and we might as well remove the link. I will not
rename the pages, but the misleading links need to be fixed.

So why not be honest with the reader in the first place and call the
glorified status pages "Status"?
