Subdivide categories[edit]

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:

 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).-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 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:
Article maintenance Template and module maintenance File maintenance Errors Article classification Pending action
Category:Citation needed Category:Modules with bad documentation Category:Broken images‎ Category:AutoUnsigned template used incorrectly Category:Conjecture Category:Pending deletion
Category:Cleanup Category:Modules with no documentation Category:Images requesting to be reuploaded Category:Fixme‎ Category:Disambiguation pages Category:Pending merge
Category:Dead links Category:Templates with bad documentation Category:Images violating copyright Category:History uses deprecated header Category:Editcopies Category:Pending move

Having an "Easy" category that doesn't really require much thought (like substing templates), for new users to start with would be good too. MajrTalk

FTB Wiki has a backlog page. I'm planning to do something similar on the Russian wiki one day, and we might be able to borrow the fundamental idea and adapt it to our needs. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 08:11, 26 May 2018 (UTC)
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.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 01:20, 30 July 2018 (UTC)
