Questions / decisions for discussion

Which categories are in active use and which are outdated?

Category names tend to use underscores rather than spaces to separate words.

Actually, is this true anymore? Does it make a difference to performance, readability or links either way? --Mia (talk) 12:03, 8 March 2015 (PDT)

Categories change log

As categories are added for individual items they occasionally need tidying up.

I've 'Units with women's personal narratives' to the more general Women_in_WWI. --Mia (talk) 11:52, 8 March 2015 (PDT)

Things that need to be done but aren't quite neat tasks yet

  • Update categories used to reference 'units' rather than 'battalions' for future flexibility (and see if there's a better way to apply categories to new pages)
I've installed to change Battalions_without_personal_narratives to Units_needing_personal_narratives --Mia (talk) 04:36, 17 December 2014 (PST)
  • Add a WYSIWYG editor - the one currently used on Wikipedia doesn't seem stable yet and might conflict with other extensions used. --Mia (talk) 04:36, 17 December 2014 (PST)
  • Track down missing images (presumably after upgrade to 1.24) eg those without thumbnails on Special:ListFiles --Mia (talk) 16:21, 26 January 2015 (PST)
  • Sort out various pages reporting script errors in Category:Pages_with_script_errors --Mia (talk) 16:21, 26 January 2015 (PST)
