Which languages of Wikipedia have best organized category
trees? I know the German Wikipedia is different. It is
often hard to make interwiki links to its categories, but
most of the rest seem to build on quite similar ideas.
I'm fashinated about categorization, but IMHO the trouble can't be solved
with an efficient, easy tool for category intersection, If such a tool
(something like optimized DynamicPageList ) would exist, the problem could
be solved with an "axial" categorization, t.i. some "trees" of
dealing with only one "topic", where well defined sets of items, selected
for many "axes", could be retrieved by intersection. I call those "axial
categories" as "catwords", ti an hybrid between categories and keywords.
See (if you can understand it)... here: [[File:Catwords graph.png]] on
Commons. Jus a layman, DIY thoght... don't expect a high level work.
But, to run, this approach needs a rule: an item MUST be assigned to anyone
of "parent" category in the tree. Just the opposite of current rule: assign
any item to the most specific one.
