==Master Categories==
 
 
 
Pages must be in one of these master categories. This is done automatically if the <nowiki>{{person | born=????}}</nowiki> etc template is added.
 
* '''Admin''' - for internal organisation of the site, templates etc
 
* '''Award''' - [[Awards]], but only apply to the key pages for award series
 
* '''Bid''' - A [[bid]] for a convention

Nicknames for fans have some interest, but again would better be part of the fan's main page. So I think its clutter and would remove it. I now think they should be redirects to a bolded mention in an person's actual page. JRB
 
* '''Person'''
 
* '''Publication''' - A hidden category for all publications above.

* For something in a category that's too common to be in the main index, add a leading underscore.

JRB  [mlo: I see a good case for this, but let's discuss it a bit more first.  What do we do when we have something like most Eastercons that ought to have both "convention" and "_convention"?] Eastercons should have tag eastercon and not convention, can we think of other examples where Con X is particularly important?

* Remove tag websites, everything has a website. JRB [mlo: The idea was to tag pages ''specifically'' about websites.  Let's review]
 
* Add tag '''project''', for all those fannish projects to archive, catalogue change the world etc. Would cover many websites like SF Encyclopedia etc, so could take over from website tag. JRB  [mlo: ??]
 
* Work on pages with multiple meanings so we have no pages with incompatible tags merely because they share the same name. JRB [mlo: let's discuss -- I don't understand the implications of this]
 
* Now tag collector has gone replace with backlinks from the [[Collector]] article.  [mlo: agree.]
 
This could apply to all sorts of roles, editor, historian etc. JRB [mlo: let's discuss -- I don't understand the implications of this, though it sounds sensible]
 
* Publisher is currently half companies, half people. The latter is an anomalous role given we don't have editor etc. We could change publisher to '''press''' to be the counterpart to small_press, but its not a common term. It might be easiest to just ensure [[publisher]] is in people's descriptions, and have a backlink section as we do for editor, and not tag people. publishing_house/publisher is an alternative. JRB [mlo: I no longer think it makes sense for it to be a person -- there are far too many fanzines publishers! The question then becomes, does the remaining use warrant keeping it at all?]. I think we should rename small_press tag to be publisher, and keep the mainstream ones in that. They'd be overwhelmed, but that's good, and avoids our assessment. Get Thomas's view. JRB [thomas: tagging small presses with 'publisher' rather than 'small_press' makes sense to me. As for people, there is the borderline case of Graham Stone having published books as Graham Stone.][thomas: another alternative is '''imprint'''. It doesn't have quite the same meaning. A publisher may have multiple imprints. But users may tend to know publishers by their imprints rather than their business names (e.g., "Escape Publishing" rather than "Harlequin Australia", and "Tor" rather than "Tom Doherty Associates").]
 
* Change the novelty tags (food, catchphrase, nickname, obscure fact etc) into standalone pages prominent from the landing page. Obviously it would be nicer to have someone write on the history of nicknames, but we could just have the automatic backlist from a mention of the term. Not convinced that people finding one obscure fact would be hopping to others. JRB
 
* Either get rid of '''newszine''' (3 entries) and '''newsletter''' or populate them. Convention newsletters should really be folded into the con entries, the rest are just fanzines, which need to just reference [[newszine]] their text. JRB votes populate newsletter with convention newsletters, and make newszines fanzines.
