Pjotr'k, I think I understand why you've been adjusting all the pages categories; to avoid repetition on the category pages themselves. However having the multiple categories on each page is a useful navigation tool, for instance: The Klingon page now has a single category, Klingon, so if someone was on the Klingon page and thought, "hmm, I wonder what other species live in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants" they now have to go to Klingon category, or find that category by some other means, which maybe isn't that awful but it just makes things that little bit less convenient. Do you not think you should have at least discussed this in the community portal before going ahead and makes such substantial changes? -- 8of5 17:40, 18 July 2006 (UTC)
- Maybe you are right. I believe I have done the right thing, but will take it up in the community portal. See you there! Peter R 17:42, 18 July 2006 (UTC)
