Very well.  *On this page here*, I do not understand the following:

o What does the status "Invalid" mean?   This was my original reason for looking for help.
  Meanwhile I've used a search engine to find the answer, so don't answer, 
  just add link to http://news.launchpad.net/general/of-bugs-and-statuses beside the Status selection list.

o When I do not understand something, where do I look for help?
  The only help-related link visible to me is hidden in the lower left corner.
  The link states that it leads to information on how I can help to improve Launchpad.
  However, I am looking for help on how to use it, which is something completely different.

Ah, you have context-related help available?  How do I find it?

task you were interested in);

My order of preference is:
o Context-relevant help
o Help portal
o You are here: No easy-to-find Help (alias "use a search engine")

No link to help.launchpad.net from launchpad.net
