In order to tidy up we need to get materials into sensible categories? So maybe we need to take a close look at Special:Categories :) To me this is almost as much in need of an overhaul as Meta - whatever else some focus here can only help? Maybe try and come up with some high level cats & then organise what there is into it - should there be cats equivalent to possibly new namespaces for example?

Having looked through it a bit yesterday one thing that could be usefully done here is to run through the "redlink" cats. Most probably should be in some other cat somewhere (or if there are enough members create the cat)? Cheers --Herby talk thyme 07:21, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Update: Majorly told me about this project - I think it is a very worthwhile endeavor. I did a bit of work cleaning up and sorting stuff in Category:Essays. Cirt (talk) 00:06, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Some days ago I've categorized or recategorized several hundreds of pages: As of 12:52, 25 July 2010 there are 1890 uncategorized pages; as of 06:00, 4 August 2010, there are 1316, of which only 65 are non-subpages (certainly to be categorized) and 503 are subpages of pages with less than 10 uncategorized subpages. There were pages without categories since 2001! Now we should check the most populated categories and the wanted categories to make content more accessible and to know better what content there's on Meta. --Nemo 20:39, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
