User:DexDor/Finding miscategorizations Information

From Wikipedia
< User:DexDor  (Redirected from User:DexDor/FM)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:DexDor/FM

This page contains links to a category intersection tool ( Petscan) to check whether there are pages at some combinations of namespace and high level categories. For a table showing which combinations of namespace and category are valid see User:DexDor/NSCat. For more information about how pages become miscategorized and how to fix them see User:DexDor/FHL.

The table shown below (in which the rows roughly correspond to the columns of the NSCat table) includes links to a category intersection tool that can identify any pages at certain combinations of namespace and category.

Category/ies [a] Namespace(s) [b] Query Notes
CA User PetScan This tends to find a lot of sandbox subpages that have been (prematurely) placed in article categories. It also finds user pages that are violations of WP:USERNOCAT ( example fix) and user books that are categorized as community books. If the query could be restricted to only find non-subpages or to only find pages that have not been edited for a period (e.g. a week) it would be easier to identify pages that are priority to fix.

  Template Petscan This query looks at a particular content (articles) category and excludes stub templates (Stub templates are in stub categories which are in article categories).
