Relationship to category "tree"

Sam has suggested to me that this index might be replaced by the category structure. I think both can coexist quite happily for the foreseeable future. The index is manually created and can therefore be structured and formatted in a way that overrides or improves on categorisation.

However, all users should be encouraged to see that:

  1. every "article" is in at least one category (and preferably two or more if at all applicable - this can be more flexible than subcategories can be, eg an article can be in a category even if only a small part of it is covered by the category; article "Russia" can be in categories "Europe" and "Asia")
  2. every category is in at least one parent category (and may sometimes be suitable in two or more, provided that its subject-matter is wholly within the parent cat's scope; category "Russia" should not be in categories "Europe" and "Asia" because that will lead to circularity, endless loops, and possible duplication and other waste of effort).

Not looked around much in the last few days; this may have been overtaken by events.

I agree with these suggestions, feel free to make the changes necessary to implement them. If you wish, use whatever means reasonable to encourage users do as you have described above. --Sam Odio 20:36, 11 February 2006 (EST)

promoting bluwiki pagez?

is there any other form of promotion for my page besides being listed in the directory? It used to be one of the most popular pages on bluwiki. --NERD42  EMAIL  TALK  H2G2  PEDIA  UNCYC 10:14, 3 April 2006 (EDT)

Big PD campaign

Sorry about this, it is NOT vandalism... please delete all the pages, and preferably my account!Microchip08 10:40, 7 January 2008 (EST)

Usernames cannot be deleted on a wiki (not without a lot of trouble). Just stop using your username. Community Portal is not the best place to ask that question. You can easily find a sysop and ask them on their talk page (though we all watch this page). It's enough to put {{pd}} on them, a sysop will notice without you asking ;-) I would rather not delete your templates though because they're useful. Would you mind if I merged them somewhere (ie one of the BluWiki: pages) and gave you credit? � Nathan (talk) 10:45, 7 January 2008 (EST)
Do what you like - I'll probably be back ;-) Microchip08 11:38, 7 January 2008 (EST)
