Things I work on

Category work

  • Look through category structure for places where things can be simplified or standardized. This can include:
    • For categories that have only one page, either recategorize that page or put more articles in the category
    • Where there is a category such as "XXX by country", make sure all the entries in that category are also under the relevant country, and vice versa
    • Make new subcategories where there are enough pages to justify it
  • Look through Special:WantedCategories to see if there are either categories that should be created or articles that should have any categories changed or removed.
    • Note: When I started on this, there were over 2000 categories in this list. Now there are fewer than 300. An important reason for working on this is that some pages (articles, categories, etc.) have only redlinked categories. Those pages don't show up as uncategorized, and it's good for them to have at least one bluelinked category.
  • Check sort keys to be sure articles sort correctly in each category
  • Pages in stub categories and cleanup categories should also be in regular categories.
