We have a Characters category that seems to be missing a lot of characters. Anyone who updates a character page should add the appropriate categorization in addition to other work they're doing. --Ted C 15:28, 25 October 2006 (CDT)

I have fixed it to where we have sub-categories for characters who belong in those races, and those that are left don't really have a race or sub-category they belong to or they are they are very important/well known characters. --Dwarf Lord 16:42, 25 October 2006 (CDT)
This is when it gets tricky. I try and imagine myself as the visitor and which way would be the easiest for me to navigate. There are two main circumstances: All characters under one category or all characters under subcategories. I'm not sure if putting the "main" characters directly into the Characters category is the best idea because who are we to judge which characters are more important? I think another option might be to list each character in both the Character category, and their specific Race subcategory. This way a visitor can either navigate via the races links or view the whole list. This might be our best option. --Hyarion 17:32, 25 October 2006 (CDT)
