Forum:Image Upload Categories
I have been doing some work to try and get a better category structure for our images. I have done some work with the image category heirarchy and you can see how it looks now from the main Category:Images. Of course, if you have any feedback about these categories, please let me know or feel free to make the changes yourself.
I wanted to request an update of the categories listed on the Special:Upload page. I think the list there is looking a little stale and I'd like to propose an update. I'd like to update the MediaWiki:Licenses page which lists the various image categories. I think if this list were updated we would have a better chance of getting the images in the appropriate category right when they are uploaded, instead having to go back and recategorize these images after they are already in use. I have a rough draft in my sandbox of how the new list of image categories might look.
I'd like anyone who is interested in this to feel free to modify that list so we can get more useful and updated list of image categories for the upload page. When we have a consensus as to how we want this to look I'd be happy to translate it into the MediaWiki code, so that an admin can easily update the page that codes the list for the upload page. Check out this page and let me know what you think.

- That's way too many categories for the drop-down list. I would prefer if only the more common ones are listed. The uncommon ones can be re-categorised manually, IMO. 12:15, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
I took out some of the less often used categories. The list is at 49 in the main section and 29 in the skills subsection. About what size should we have this list? What other ones should we cut out? Again, if you see a category that you don't think fits on the list be bold and delete. I want people editing this list if possible.18:37, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
