Because we have one true subcategory, Housing, in existence, I'm thinking it might be a good idea to add the others and then dynamically list them using categorytree above the usual subcategory listing.
I propose the following (characters in parentheses are currently "missing" in the category name):
|Clothing||Equipment||Items by Level||Hous(ing)||How Acquired||Items by School||World Acquired In||Other|
Level (0)1+ Items
|Any School Items|
Balance School Items
|Item Card Giving Items [New]|
No Auction (Items)
Treasure Cards are an odd case. Most fit under Bought and Crafted.
The only Level 48+ Items are school specific pets.
I'm also currently trying to find where I saw a way to list large groups of articles in a click-able a-z style alphabetical list inside a large box. I was certain it was in the wiki:help, but I can't relocate it.
I'm also rethinking the whole "detailed category" thing I attempted with the Amulets. I stopped when I did because it's simpler to change a few than many. The few I did do provide exact lookups for those items, but the category list is longer than the article itself. There may be cause to add repetition and depth to the proposed categories, but it may be better to just keep to the above categories. Keeping it.
Solidifying at least these categories will go a long way toward the automation I'm trying to put together using the CreatePlates feature. Take a look at my sandbox and a work-in-progress template that I'm working on. It's currently protected to keep it from use for now, but if you have some expertise on these let me know on my talk page.
I would really like some feedback on these items. While I don't mind being the janitor, I really don't want to be a dictator.
