== Categories ==
As a Wikipedia user, I have noticed that none of your articles have categories. Did you know that categories exist in MediaWiki? If yes, is there a reason? I would like to start work on it.

:Woah, I don't know much about Categories. How would I add them? What are they for?
::[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Categorization Categories] are used to help organize pages. I also see that there are no help articles, in the absance if them, I will be using the Wikipedia [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style style guides]. --[[User:Midnightcomm|Midnightcomm]] 01:09, 23 April 2006 (EDT)
::<nowiki>[[Category:File Systems]]</nowiki>
:::Sounds good to me. We welcome your contributions.
:::Yay! I'm all for categories. I've started adding some (tools, licenses, OSes, ...), feel free to add more and categorize the articles. --[[User:Uwe Hermann|Uwe Hermann]] 15:03, 23 April 2006 (EDT)
::::How do you add categories? --SImson
::::: Usually you just add <nowiki>[[Category:Foobar]]</nowiki> somewhere at the bottom of the page, more info [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Category here]. For the tools, I have incorporated the category into the Infobox, see [[dd]] for an example. It looks a bit stupid in the wiki source, but keeps the wiki category and the "Genre:" classification in one place, which is important IMHO. Btw, you can sign your "posts" with "<nowiki>--~~~~</nowiki>" which will expand to username and date, just like on this post. --[[User:Uwe Hermann|Uwe Hermann]] 21:45, 2 May 2006 (EDT)
== Tools ==
Hi, a quick message regarding [[Tools]]: it's true that [[Tools]] was getting quite big, but I think one page which lists ''all'' tools with a one-liner description is actually quite useful. For better readability and so on, I suggest we use categories which breaks up the tools quite nicely, too. Thoughts? --[[User:Uwe Hermann|Uwe Hermann]] 15:26, 30 April 2006 (EDT)
:Well, there are so many different kinds of tools. I don't see the advantage of having tools about reconstructing MBRs on the same page as tools that do anti-forensics. Somebody who wants to see all of the tools can do a search for "Tools."
::Hm, true. Maybe there's a possibility to show all items in a category (and it's subcategories) on one page, that'd be nice and sufficient. Will check... --[[User:Uwe Hermann|Uwe Hermann]] 21:45, 2 May 2006 (EDT)
:::How do you get that nice User: stuff inserted automatically? Anyway, I think that putting the analysis tools all on one page makes sense. But not imaging tools, or steg-tools, or visualization tools. Thanks for the info on categories.
::::See above, simply add "<nowiki>--~~~~</nowiki>" (without the quotes) and press "Show preview", it will be expanded to your username and the current date... --[[User:Uwe Hermann|Uwe Hermann]] 04:03, 4 May 2006 (EDT)
