Categorization[edit]

Hi, Dekart. Thanks for the categorization work you've been doing. Some quick comments, though:

  1. I've undid this edit as subtyping is a defining characteristic of OOP and probably shouldn't be hidden away in a subcategory with other kinds of polymorphism usually not used in OO languages;
  2. Regarding Category:Class (computer programming): some of the concept you place there might be applicable to Prototype-based programming languages as well;
  3. Regarding Category:Object (computer science): the eponymous article Object (computer science) discusses objects in a more general sense than the kind of objects found in OOPLs, so the purpose of the category might be might be misunderstood by others.

As you opted to ignore the community feedback, the next step is a broader discussion. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:28, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Please see my comments there. As a side note, please note that, "forget to answer to one message on talk page" doesn't imply "opted to ignore the community feedback". I found your message on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Computing somewhat insulting, e.g.: "...did not appear to be collaborative earier. Especially damaging thing...". I hope you don't often handle other editors in such way. Dekart (talk) 15:55, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
