User:Lysander/Rethinking categorization

From BoyWiki

What are some ways to do categorization on BoyWiki?

  • Reinvent the wheel. Each time an article is created, take the time to explore the current categorization scheme for a category that the topic might fit in, and use that; or else think of a new one, if the category doesn't exist yet.
  • Mimic Wikipedia's categorization scheme, but don't create a new subcategory until an existing category already has x articles. (What should x be?)
  • Mimic Wikipedia's categorization scheme whenever a new page is created, but delete any empty categories when a page is deleted.
