[edit] Characters category

Great job on all those edits! Just had a quick thought. Maybe for an Elf such as Legolas (and all other characters) we should put in a Category:Elves category, and then that category we put into Category:Characters. I suppose we could have Category:Characters display a list of all the character articles as well as sub-character folders, but it may get redundant. Then again as I'm writing this I'm starting to change my mind...heh --Hyarion 15:04, 24 April 2006 (EDT)

That would be a great idea .. its simply hard to add all the pages of the sub-categories to the top category too. --Rion 15:17, 24 April 2006 (EDT)
I agree, maybe for now what we can do is focus on the most specific category (Even replacing the Elves category for the type of Elf, etc). If we want to broaden it up later then they will already be categorized so it will be much easier. If you have any specific group of articles you'd like categorizing just let me know and I'd be glad to help. --Hyarion 15:20, 24 April 2006 (EDT)
Ok but we should decide the categories now and before we start categorising everything .. don't you think so too ? So i start making a list of all "top categories" we need .. and all subcategories --Rion 15:25, 24 April 2006 (EDT)
Yes that is probably our best bet. I listed all the current categories (as of the weekend) at Index of categories. --Hyarion 15:27, 24 April 2006 (EDT)
Thats cool !! Only one question .. what about Locations .. that can be about everything from landforms to Buildings .. oh yeah and im killing the lakes and falls and oceans and move them into bodies of water or shall we make another subcategory there ?--Rion 15:33, 24 April 2006 (EDT)
Don't get me started on ambiguous words :p I would say Buildings would be better classified as Structures and Locations would be below Realms, though where Cities or Regions etc lie I know not...let's pass on that for now until we can get a more precise answer. Bodies of water is a great idea. If we want to narrow it down later we can but that works great for now. --Hyarion 15:38, 24 April 2006 (EDT)
Woah that index is a great help .. i start working with this now ..so whats the code for the subcategories now ? for example Grey Elves subcategory for Elves etc. ? .. oh yeah and Towers would be under buildings i guess .. ohh nevermind .. read your post above again .. now i really understand what you mean :)--Rion 15:45, 24 April 2006 (EDT)
