Just wondering what you think about the "Dragon Mates and Offspring" category? I'm not sure how I feel, as I am an advocate of decreasing the amount of categories we have. There's a ton! On one hand yes, I can see the usefulness, but on the other ... do we really need it? Is someone actually going to use it to look up all the Mates and Offspring? Thanks for you thoughts.
Honestly, I'm not sure either. We already have the categories Mothers, Fathers and Baby Dragons, where all the articles from "Dragon Mates and Offspring" fit into. I, too, am aware of the massive amount of categories and I remember the "Category Clean-Up" that you and Woolly Howl did about 2 years ago. It feels like the categories will always be a weak spot for our wiki. Anyway, I think the category is mostly unnecessary, but it wouldn't hurt to have a third opinion. I'll reach out to Clodaghelm.
Since we're on this topic, I've been thinking about some categories which feel a bit overkill, specifically the "[Media name] Dragons" and "[Media name] Characters" (e.g. "How to Train Your Dragon 2 Dragons" and "How to Train Your Dragon 2 Characters"). The dragon species have just the first category, while the dragon characters have both categories. I was thinking that the "Dragons" category should be changed to "Dragon Species", so that the characters won't be included too.
Yes, I also feel it is overkill or too much overlap. Not sure which to ditch and which to keep though. It does seem appropriate to get rid of "[Media name] Dragons" and "Franchise Dragons", since all the articles in those would fit into one or the other of "Species" or "Characters".
