The idea is to have a more-or-less closed set of broad topics to give some structure to the Sasopedia. Without this, the list of "Topics" would be too long and the overall structure too flat.
The Top-Level Topics, taken together, are pretty comprehensive. Any article or narrower topic should fit naturally into at least one, and more often two or three, Top-Level Topics.--Howles 08:51, 25 May 2008 (EDT)
Earlier discussion ...
I think this page is too crowded and too "flat" (lacking in hierarchical structure). In particular, I question having articles tagged directly to the Topics category. Beyond that, I think it's better in most cases to have at least two category levels between a Sasopedia article and the Topics uber-category. Toward that end, I've edited the Hierarchy of Categories page to suggest a bunch of top-level categories which I think cover the subject matter; obviously, suggestions and additions from others are welcome. The idea is that people would be discouraged from adding to this set and encouraged instead to find or develop categories one or two levels down.--Howles 22:09, 28 February 2008 (EST)
Should we have a Testing category listing in Topics? Or does it best belong somewhere else? Such a category could be used for pages like Tips:Use the OBS= Option to Save Time While Testing (or the read more page it links to. --Don Henderson 15:23, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
