Categories[edit]

Why is this category a member of both a parent and a child category? It's a member of Category:Wiktionary:Sub-projects and Appendices and Category:Appendices, which is also a member of Category:Wiktionary:Sub-projects and Appendices. If the same category rules as used on Wikipedia apply here as well, then this should not be. --日本穣 03:10, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

I don't think we've had the opportunity to get quite as far along with categories as Wikipedia has. We don't have many rules regarding them at all. What Wikipedia rule in specific are you referring to? I know they don't like "circular" category definitions, but I don't see what is wrong with this, even by my weak understanding of their rules for categories. --Connel MacKenzie T C 03:32, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
The rule is basically this: if an article or category is a member of Category A, and Category A is a member of Category B, then you should not categorize the article or category under both Category A and Category B. You should only categorize it under Category A because being a member of Category A automatically makes it under any categories to which Category B belongs. Does that make sense? --日本穣 04:14, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
I've taken care of this in my spring clean of the category tree. --Dangherous 20:24, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
