PostPosted: Sun Nov 05, 2006 2:57 pm    Post subject: Category Updates Reply with quote

I'd like to start keeping a log of updates to the category system. New categories added, restructuring to existing categories, etc., maintenance on the category system itself and not just general sortin & cleanup of pictures into appropriate existing categories.

Other category staff, if you take time for significant work on the category hierarchy, feel free to post your updates as well.

This does not include specifically requested new categories which have already been discussed in this section.



~ November 2006 Summary ~

New: Movies > Disney > Emperor's New Groove
Found many pics.

New: Movies > Disney > Hercules
Found about two dozen pics.

New:
- Comics > Original Comics > Covers
- Comics > Original Comics > Pages
- Comics > Original Comics > Characters, Fanart

These three to help organize the section. They are also accessible from Anime/Manga > Original > Doujinshi.

New: Games > Action (Platforming) Games > Okami
Found ten pics for this game, several of which were misplaced under Anime/Manga. It's not much now, but should be enough for a newly released game.

Cartoons > Disney and Movies > Disney
General cleanup and merging of duplicate categories. They are still accessible from both locations.

Anime/Manga > Original > Doujinshi and Comics > Original doujinshi
Merged their contents and locked against future submissions, to encourage use of their new subcats.

~ December 2006 Summary ~

New: Cartoons > Dragon Booster > Fan Characters (OC's)
Found enough pics of DB fanchars to warrant a new category. Probably a contest or something....

New: Cartoons > Teen Titans > Characters (The Titans)
To organize fanart of the series's five protagonists and make category selection easier.

New: Cartoons > Xiaolin Showdown > Characters (The Xiaolins)
To organize fanart of the series protagonists and make category selection easier.

Cartoons > Teen Titans
Sorted & moved various character subheadings.

Anime/Manga > Original > Doujinshi
Merged all contents into Comics > Original Comics. It was a surprisingly complicated process.

Books > Eragon and Books > Eldest
Sorted under a new subheading for "Christopher Paolini", the author of both.

Furries > Misc > Taurs
Moved up one level, is now Furries > Taur.

Cartoons > Hanna-Barbera
Found a lot of Smurf fanarts (mostly by one user) and moved them to this heading.

Comics > EJR Comix
Sorted out and pruned after failing the Google test (# results: <1,000).

~ April 2007 Summary ~

New: Furries > Animal-Eared
- The kemonomimi categories have been added and are available for submission. Further details are explained here.

Furries > Anthro > Cats (Nekos)
A broad review of this section showed that most of the content in its (gender-based) subcategories more properly belong under the new "animal-ears" heading instead of under Anthro. With the "catboys" and "catgirls" now relocated to their new home, the gender distinction is no longer useful for the Anthro section and has been pruned.

New: Cartoons > Invader Zim > Fan Comics (doujinshi)
I'm almost surprised the Zim section didn't have one yet.

Cartoons > Spongebob Squarepants
Added several categories for fanart, fan-comics, and OC's. This should account for all types of Spongebob submissions, so I've locked the Spongebob heading itself against further submission.

Cartoons > Invader Zim
Reorganized the Zim category similarly to the Spongebob category, with one section for fanart of official characters, one for fanchars/OC's, and one for Zim fancomics.

Furries > Anthro > Cats (Felines)
Sorting still in progress (40 pages still to review). The older "male/female" subcategories are still available to browse, but have been blocked against submissions.

~ May 2007 Summary ~

Not much work done this month, but:

New: Anime/Manga > Naruto > Characters & Fanart
A general-purpose section for Naruto fanart submissions so that we can clean up the Naruto master heading, as it's a pretty BIG section with a lot of pictures still left unsorted. All of the existing character-specific Naruto categories have been moved under this heading.

Games > Sly Cooper series
Reorganized this section in the same manner as the others, splitting by character fanart, crossover fanart, OC fanart, and doujinshi.

Anime/Manga
Descriptions for all series starting with B. Whew, only one more letter to go!

Anime/Manga > Original
Sorted this up to the top of the Anime/Manga listing, because I'm tired of rejecting original art submissions misplaced under the "Other not listed" heading.

Did I mention finishing all the Anime/Manga series descriptions? Yay.

But, in other news:

Anime/Manga > Dragon Half
Pruned to prevent misuse by users who apparently (still) don't understand that "Dragon Half" is an actual anime series and not a category for original dragon art. On my latest check, only ten out of 14 pics actually belonged there, barely enough to warrant this category to begin with, so while I hate to do this to a longstanding category, it is now removed.

Currently documenting all the series headings. Anyone up for a Nickelodeon group heading?

Some general cleanup and character sorting. New headings for Mario dojinshi and Daisy fanart.

Lately I don't generally work on the category system without a request for it, but:

New:

Games > By Title > Fallout
Definitely a case for adding this series to the list.

Pokemon > Fan-made Pokemon > Original Starters
The content's probably a little thin for now, but Eevee isn't the only distinct theme among fakemon art. Users who create their own fanonical regions tend to create their own trios to go along with it.
