It's great that we start having articles on concepts appearing in Tolkien's other fictional worlds! However, I have a concern if these should end up in the category-tree pertaining to Arda - like for example "Cat:Seas and Oceans" (for the Sea of Windless Storm) or "Cat:Cities, Towns and Villages" (for Wootton Minor and Wootton Major). In my opinion, it would suffice to place them all in Category:Smith of Wootton Major. Otherwise we need to rethink the category-tree of TG, which has a distinction between "Real-world", "Eä", and "Other fictional worlds".--Morgan 22:03, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

I agree that characters/locations from other stories shouldn't be in the categories with EÄ locations/characters. We also have Category:Locations (real-world) and Category:Characters in The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún, so why couldn't we just make a category like "locations in Smith of Wootton Major" as sub-category in Category:Smith of Wootton Major. --Amroth 14:54, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
Certainly, I think it would be possible to have further subcategories within, for example, Category:Smith of Wootton Major, especially if there are many concepts appearing in a particular book.--Morgan 17:23, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
I think that we should just throw them all in the main category (i.e. the Category:Smith of Wootton Majors); I doubt that further diffusion will be necessary at all. However we can always diffuse in future if needs be, but let's not make empty or next-to-empty categories now. -- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  18:08, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
