Help:Categories

From NewgonWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Categories are the central functioning unit of [[Category:Official Encyclopedia]]. Almost every article on the Wiki should be added to this one category.

Articles will also be added to subcategories of [[Category:Official Encyclopedia]]. All of these subcategories are added to Official Encyclopedia by adding [[Category:Official Encyclopedia]] to their wikitext. Each article should be added to at least one subcategory of [[Category:Official Encyclopedia]] and one of its own subcategories. This will help us avoid atrophy of content as readers progress through the "category tree".

Before proposing new categories, we should imaginine what categories our encyclopaedia may need to use in the future. For example, if we have one book review, and this looks like becoming a regular feature, book reviews should be a category. Not all of the categories listed below necessarily exist. To see if a category does exist, please check Special:Categories, adding [[Category:Official Encyclopedia]] to greenlinked (inactive) cats to activate them.

Rationale:

Proposed cats are listed below in groups for easy insertion.

A category is appropriate for an article if the article contains relevant material and its name would look sensible in the category. Unless mentioned (as with "General"), the first category on the cut/paste list is a subcategory of OE and the following ones are its own subcategories:
