Now a high profile page[edit]

This page is now linked from the "Categories" link in on the left hand side of the categories list at the bottom of all pages. The traffic has now increased and no doubt the vandalism will also increase. Please stick it on your watchlist. -- Alan Liefting (talk - contribs) 05:59, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Now given indefinite semi-protection. -- Alan Liefting (talk - contribs) 19:49, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Now that the help:categories article is linked to from "Categories" it is impossible to find the list of article categories. I do hope they revert this decision. The result is hopeless. -- spin|control 03:14, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

@Doktorspin: I think it was Special:Categories? It is accessible thru the Special pages link to the left. I am curious to know what you use it for. It seems to be of little use to me and of even less to readers (which is who this page is for). -- Alan Liefting (talk - contribs) 06:55, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
@Alan Liefting: Thanks for the pointer. Just hope I'll remember it next time. I have created a small but odd collection of pages and each page needs a good range of categories where possible in order for it to be representative of good Wiki style. I try to find relevant categories for articles I notice that are under-supported. The more relevant categories an article has, the more connected it is and the more easily locatable. There are sadly many Wiki features that are hard to find and now add to this the category list which has been made harder to find. -- spin|control 13:33, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
