Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Multimedia and Commons/Variable size of Commons categories

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Variable size of Commons categories

  • Problem: Currently there is a strict restriction of 200 images per page of a commons category. For working, especially for housekeeping, but also for worling on articles etc. it would be very helpfull, if users could change the limitation of images.
  • Who would benefit: Every user who works a lot on Commons. Scrolling through 200 image pages of very large categories is time consuming and unnerving. In both cases, maintenance and looking for images.
  • Proposed solution: There are in my eyes two possibilities for logged in users: 1st is a mask, where users can free write the number of images they would like to see on one Category page. So I could say, I want to see 40, 50, 100, 120, 200, 250, 500, 788 or 1000 images in one page. Or, 2nd possibility: Commons set some standard numbers as button f.e. 50, 100, 250,, 500, 1000. Best would be in my eyes a combination of both.
