* I think the meta-categories are fairly self explanitory, we want all categories to be sub-categories to those four. [[User:Vlademir1|Vlad]] 21:58, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

* The Main Page has been cleaned up, with the extrainious chit-chat movet to [[Talk:Main Page|it's talk page]].
  
* I'm adding a category <tt><nowiki>[[Category: Fan Community Figures]]</nowiki></tt> for people who are known for their service to fandom, for example, James Bowman for his [http://dariafans.blogspot.com Daria Fandom Blog].  People who are also writers or artists who have done community support work should go here as well.  Examples: Kemical Reaction, for her maintaining [http://glitterberries.com Glitterberries], Michelle Klein-Haas, Martin Pollard, etc.

* The meta-categories are now up and finalized, all categories should be subcategories one of these four, or of another that is a subcategory of these four.

* Two things:
 
# Category links for characters should use sort keys so the characters appear on the category pages in order by their last name, while displaying their name on the category page as <tt>FirstName LastName</tt>.  For example, the  category link for [[Michael Fulton]] would be <tt><nowiki>[[Category: Fanfiction Characters|Fulton, Michael]]</nowiki></tt>.  This appears to be the standard for Wikipedia category pages; see, for example, [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:American_composers the Wikipedia page for American composers].
 
# CINCGREEN had an extended Wiki version of his [http://dariaencyclopedia.blogspot.com Daria Encyclopedia] on-line once, but it was taken down due to...'reasons' as Ms. Li would say.  I believe there is a backup somewhere, and I'll try to get it back on line somewhere.  For stuff not covered at [http://outpost-daria.com Outpost Daria], I think it's the definitive resource.

* I added a section detailing my proposal for Categories and organizing them to [[user:Vlademir1|my user page]], there is also the starting stub for a Guidelines proposal, which I will add to early next week. [[User:Vlademir1|Vlad]] 04:32, 6 April 2007 (EDT)
 
  
 
* A section has been created for A.U. versions of canon characters. It is right now set-up as a sub-category of the [[:Category:Fanfiction Characters|Fanfiction Characters]] & [[:Category:Canon Characters|Canon Characters]] categories. If you belive it should be listed as a main category, the name should be changed, or anything at all, feel free to [http://www.dariawiki.org/wiki/index.php?title=Category_talk:Alternate_Universe_Characters&action=edit discuss] it.
