Are you interested in the Categorization Project?categorization.gif



This project exists to bring together WikiTreers who want to help manage the category hierarchy and encourage categorization.

The project goals are:

  • Category maintenance: Assisting Projects with correcting errors in category names and adding wanted categories to the hierarchy;
  • Category oversight and collaboration: Facilitating category oversight and collaboration between Projects and interested Wikitree users; and
  • Category vision: Ensuring that the whole category structure from top to bottom is coherent, easily accessible, and that guidelines are documented and published.

On Joining

  • After answering our G2G post and joining our Google group, you will be awarded with the Categorization project badge by one of the leaders.
  • Look at our To-Do section to see what discussions are currently happening, what categories can use your help being moved or built, and other areas in which you can help. Maintenance Categories always need work.
