This page lists proposals for categories people think we should use. They will be created if the majority approve. You can see the categories that currently exist at Special:Categories.


Yo-yo articles lacking pictures

  • Would it be a good idea to a category for yo-yo articles that don't have pictures? That way it would be easy for someone to come in and see what articles need pictures and they could see what yo-yos they have that they could photograph.


  • Rather than reviews, which should only have pages with yo-yo reviews we should create [[Category:Yo-yo]] with subcategories of [[Category:Dif-e-yo Yo-yos]] or whatever. We could then move the manufacturer info to the category page so people can see the info about the manufacturer and all the articles we have on yo-yos by that manufacturer. --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 09:10, 5 July 2006 (PDT)
    • I agree with this wholeheartedly. I've always found it odd that yo-yos were only represented as reviews. There's plenty of factual information for each yo-yo to make an entry on that worthwhile. ShawnF 17:08, 22 July 2006 (PDT)
      • I'm gonna go for this in the next few days then unless anyone else has any feedback. --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 09:56, 20 September 2006 (PDT)
      • Last call: I'm going to create this, any feedback? It'll take ages. --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 22:16, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

Expanded Reviews

  • In conjunction with splitting off yo-yos into their own factual entries, I think it'd be interesting to expand the definition of reviews to include other things. This could be cases, string, bearings, even stores perhaps (though maybe store reviews is too much a can or worms). I'm thinking the way to do it would be having a main Reviews category with subcategories for yo-yos and other stuff. That keeps the opinion-based content away from the rest of the site (moreso than if categories had their own subcategory called review). Any thoughts? ShawnF 17:11, 22 July 2006 (PDT)
    • String and bearing reviews would rock. Stores can change over time but a slick 6 string review will be useful in the future. Go for it. --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 09:54, 20 September 2006 (PDT)


  • There are a lot of great yo-yo sites out there, if we could have a few of the notable ones (especially trick sites) featured here that would be cool. We could then make the online stores category a subcategory of the website category. --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 09:10, 5 July 2006 (PDT)

Yo-yos and reviews

  • We need a 'yo-yos' category with 'buzz-on yo-yo' and 'yoyojam yo-yos' etc subcategories. This will allow us to separate articles with reviews from articles that just have information. --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 12:06, 12 May 2006 (PDT)
    • Ahmen. --Jaco 12:39, 12 May 2006 (PDT)
      • I agree that subcategories for each company could be interesting. That way company names wouldn't have to be in the name of each yo-yo's page. I guess I don't feel too too strongly on the name thing, but I'm just used to Wikipedia where names are kept small unless there's a specific need to disambiguate. ShawnF 17:14, 22 July 2006 (PDT)
      • Yeah, sort the yo-yos' articles into categories based on their manufacturer!AlexKenderYo (talk) 18:22, October 10, 2014 (UTC) 

Category pages for modular yo-yo systems

Category pages for Hardcore, De-Luxxe, and Screaming Eagle series yo-yos

  • I think that there should be a category page for yo-yos in the Hardcore series (i.e. FHZ), the De-Luxxe series (i.e. the Echo), and the Screaming Eagle  series (i.e. Barracuda) AlexKenderYo (talk) 15:51, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

Category page for yo-yos that were introduced at the WYYC

Proposals that have been put in place


  • The contests page is growing, I suggest we make it a category, with subcategories of national and regional contests. --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 11:36, 25 May 2006 (PDT)

Manufacturers Revisited

Reviews by manufacturer

  • We currently have to do the reviews page by hand, if we created subcategories of 'Yo-yos by manufacturer ABC' we wouldn't have to update that page anymore. --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 06:16, 7 May 2006 (PDT)
    • Something like Category:Yo-yos by YoYoJam with the category a sub-category of Category:Reviews? I like it. Although I do think the latter category is overused, a simple Category:Yo-yos would actually have my vote since the majority now has real data in them and not really player-subjective reviews. --Jaco 07:48, 7 May 2006 (PDT)
      • Good point, perhaps it should be Category:Yo-yos with sub-categories of Category:Yo-yos by YoYoJam. Reviews can be used only for yo-yo pages that actually have subjective reviews. --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 09:06, 7 May 2006 (PDT)
        • I'll go for that if the rest of the heavyweights throw their weight behind this. --Jaco 09:31, 7 May 2006 (PDT)


  • I think we should have a Yo-yo store category, with 'Yo-yo store based in certain country' subcategories. --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 10:36, 1 May 2006 (PDT)
    • Simmilar to Category:Manufacturers has my vote. --Jaco 10:40, 1 May 2006 (PDT)
    • I think the store category is a good idea. --lanceallen 11:09, 5 May 2006 (PDT)
      • HB has also given his support at the coffee machine, I'll make it happen soon-ish. --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 06:16, 7 May 2006 (PDT)
        • I'll start linking Category:Stores where applicable. Do we go with region like in the Manufaturers, e.g. Category:Stores in North America? We have a precendent for it. --Jaco 07:45, 7 May 2006 (PDT)
          • Then again, we have them ordered by country anyway, might be useful to keep it that way, e.g. Category:Stores in the USA --Jaco 07:52, 7 May 2006 (PDT)
            • Country I think, as that's the way it is at the moment and it works. --Wilfred (talk|contribs) 09:04, 7 May 2006 (PDT)
              • Cool, I'll do it now. --Jaco 09:07, 7 May 2006 (PDT)
                • Done, sorry for all the noise. I checked, each sub-category contains the correct amount and we match up to the original page. --Jaco 09:27, 7 May 2006 (PDT)
