We are making a few changes on the Support site search to create a more complete experience for users like you. These changes are currently available in our search at http://support.esri.com/.
Wiki.GIS.com is an encyclopedia devoted entirely to GIS information. From basic terms to more complex content, the Wiki has a wealth of information that is user-generated and is constantly being updated.
ArcGIS Ideas is a portal for users to submit ideas and improvements about Esri products, which are in turn voted on with the possibility of implementation. This gives our users the opportunity to have their voices heard.

As always, the Esri Support site is always evolving and improving, so don’t forget to hit that Feedback button with any other ideas you might have.
