I propose we delete this page. I wrote it; it is mostly about the past and about architecture decisions nobody cares about now; and nobody has bothered editing it in about a year (because it's so meaningless now). Ritcheymt 22:03, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

I will fix the pages that link to this one and then delete the page. --Fran 13:09, 16 March 2009 (UTC) It appears the section about Disambiguation is the only place where this topic is discussed. We need to make sure this content is preserved elsewhere before we delete this page. --Fran 22:13, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

There is now a substantial article on disambiguation. You may wish to review the potential for merging information from here to there before deleting this page. --Steve 19:33, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Actually, I think it is helpful for "late comers" (or "later comers") to understand the path that lead to the current implementation. A portion of the article might be deleted, but the rest re-titled "History of the FSWiki Organization, Browsing, and Categories" or something similar. Legacy issues are a significant part of on-going dialogue. Because this is the first item that comes up in the search results for "Category," I read the article, and now better understand several comments/conversations and product features. (And I would be one of those users that would appreciate having an option for hierarchical categories...) Lise 03:13, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

I like your reasoning for the page to be kept and not deleted. Therefore, I have restored the page and added a move request. One reason I elected to make this change was that I've recently seen on other Talk pages that a history of the development of the wiki should be documented before all the original players are no longer available. This page is part of that proposed history and as a result the page should be preserved. --Fran 19:32, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
