Forum:More people categories

Tolkien Gateway > Council > More people categories


I would find it useful to have more categories for people. Personally, I would like to have:

  • Category:People by nationality (Wikipedia has "People by place")
  • Category:People by name (to have a nice index of all people articles on TG, similar to CAT:Publications by title)

Does anyone mind if I (start) implementing these changes? And - would it be possible for a bot to do these tedious task (I'm not so sure about what a bot can do and cannot)? --Morgan 16:40, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

You can have a bot add those categories to pages, but you'd have to sort them to |Surname, Firstname manually. I don't know if {{DEFAULTSORT:}} is enables. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 17:10, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
{{DEFAULTSORT:}} does work - I put it in (when I remember) on articles with accented titles. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 08:12, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I noticed in on Christopher Lee. Still, it would need to be manually added. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 08:45, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
