I presented two proposals in good faith that were consistent with other regional structures to G2G for approval. They created controversy and neither got to the vote. They never succeeded. In fact they are still open. To the best of my knowledge there was no formal rejection by SA Roots Project. Nor did that Project make any substantial counter proposal and seek G2G approval. Ergo South Africa does not actually have an agreed category structure for locations that I am aware of. Thus if users choose to categorise locations on their South African managed profiles they can only do so within the existing framework.
I shall continue to add town and city categories at the landing level to my South African profiles, and there are many, trying as best I can to fit into the de facto unapproved category structure, which is not of my making.
I want to make it abundantly clear, I am working South African profiles as a WikiTree member in my own right, and not as a member of the Categorisation Project. In fact I have done very little categorisation work as a project member.
If categorisation is so irrelevant to genealogy, i.e. "bunch of time wasting non-genealogy which will have to be redone somewhere in the future" as suggested, then I wonder why there is such concern about the categorisation being done by South African WikiTree users. It’s not actually irrelevant, by the way, it’s is a common feature of information wiki systems and the sooner we have a G2G approved structure for South African locations the better.
Is this a grudge issue, or is there a genuine concern about there being no agreed structure? Can we not try and find some common ground here? I am happy to rejoin the SA Roots Project and be part of any subcommittee to address this very important issue. I am actually very flexible... at the end of the day I want to see a South African Regional structure for locations that we are all comfortable with. In the meantime, if one has issues with what I am doing, kindly address these with me.
