  • Wanted to give you a suggestion for your categorizing of some of the characters.  If you have two categories: "Royalty" and "Royal family members" don't put any one person in both categories.  Just make "Royal family members" a sub-category of "Royalty" and only put the royal family members in the "Royal family members" category.  We should not be multi-categorizing single pages when only one category is necessary since it is a proper sub-category of ones above it.  Do you understand what I mean?

    • I have not been putting family members in royalty. But I like the idea of a sub category within "Royalty". I do see what you mean aswell.

    • Okay, I'm glad you see what I mean and like the idea.  You actually have been putting family members in "Royalty"  Here is an example of one you did:

      http://witcher.wikia.com/wiki/Alicja_Trojdenidka

      This person is in both the "Royalty" category and the "Royal family members" category which is redundant.  I might also suggest looking at making the "Queens and consorts" category a sub category.  


      This is an example of someone in both categories below:

      http://witcher.wikia.com/wiki/Clarissa_of_Toussaint

      This person is in both "Royalty" and "Queens and consorts" categories which is also redundant.

    • Ah sorry forgot but as you see I did create a "Queens and consorts"

  • I would like to suggest that you choose either Royal family members or Royalty rather than have both since they both seem synonymous.

    • That is also a good alternative. I don't see anything severe in the reaction (assuming that's what you meant). As I said categories are not articles. Regular readers of the Wiki won't read categories, they'll read articles. I don't know right now if the content of those category pages are also present somewhere else on the Wiki, but if they are, that's good - if not, those contents should be put into an article instead. And I think it goes without saying that if you change the structure of the categories you made or rename one or another, then you will also have to edit the articles you categorized into them, avoiding future red links and simple bad editing. Again, others can do it too, but as far as I can tell there's enough extra work for other editors as it is.

    • Right so go with making "Royal family members" a sub category- what is the extra work for editors?

  • Thought I'd let you know that the wikia chats crash sometimes, so if the place is suspiciously quiet or you can't send any message, then it's a good idea to refresh the page.
