Hello there! We are conducting a survey to better understand the user experience in making a first edit. If you have ever made an edit on Gamepedia, please fill out the survey. Thank you!
Seeing as there are many categories here, and there will only be even more in the future, I would propose to divide most of the categories into subcategories. To make it easier to tell which are subcategories and which are maintenance categories, subcategories would have a sort key of "*".
Some ideas would be:
- "Article maintenance" for categories dealing with the content of articles, such as Category:Verify or Category:Stub.
- "Template maintenance" for categories dealing with the content of templates, such as Category:Templates with no documentation (currently only two categories, but it could get more, such as a category for deprecated templates)
- "File maintenance" for categories related to files needing work, such as Category:Broken images or Category:Images violating copyright.
- "Errors" for categories related to improper template parameters and other template errors, such as Category:Missing achievement or Category:Pages with script errors
- "Article classification" for categories containing pages where there is not a goal to empty the category or the category cannot be emptied without further information or development. Some examples are Category:Upcoming, Category:Conjecture, Category:Outdated, and Category:Soft redirects
- "Pending action" for categories about pending requests such as deletion, moving, splitting, etc.
- Support: Bringing this back up again since the category now has 70 subcategories and is rather cluttered. In addition, I think some of the categories can be combined (e.g. Category:AutoUnsigned template used incorrectly and Category:Unsigned template used incorrectly, "Testing needed" with "Verify", etc).
- Some categories also seem to be broken or unused (e.g. Category:Fixme doesn't seem to be used anywhere and was only mentioned twice in talk pages); and Category:History uses deprecated header has nothing even though Special:WhatLinksHere/R has quite a few results (from history template using deprecated headers). -Sonicwave (talk) 18:42, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
- Support. Started organization in my my sandbox, and will try to finish later today (I'll be busy within the next few users though).--Talk to me 19:01, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
- I've started a table, but it's nowhere near finished, so anybody's welcome to add the rest of the categories or move some of the categories in the table as they like. All I have right now is the layout and some basic examples:

- I went ahead and split it up - there's been no objection; so instead of waiting 3 1/2 more years for more people to respond, I went ahead and boldly took action. There are some categories that remain uncategorized if anyone wants to help out with that, and I mostly just followed Knight's proposal, so subcategorizing even further (such as the "Easy" category Majr mentioned) might be a good idea.--Talk to me 01:20, 30 July 2018 (UTC)
