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.

::::: 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)

Hi. We have some spambots advertising "Chinese antique furniture" on the wiki. Could also be real people, since they've gotten over the captcha, but I doubt they understand plain English. How do you generally deal with such people here? Or better said, is there someone we're supposed to notify when something like this happens like flag the article as spam or something?

Well, I guess you'll see it when you log in anyway, just thought I'd give you a heads up before it gets indexed and all that.
