But I do get what you're saying! So, in the case of 'General Regions' like Newnes it should be a normal 'article page', the article page should though have the code at bottom of the linking to [[Category:Newnes]] so that the main article is visible to anyone looking through 'General Regions' for interesting articles. The article within Newnes on 'Firefly Canyon' will be visible from Category Newnes, but not article!!!
That's right. The article about Newnes is about Newnes - ideally it will have a few links to "Popular Canyons in the area" and "popular walks in the area" in the article for instance, but for someone to see everything in the area, they will need to go to the Newnes category.
Remember, this is just a temporary setup. The long term goal is still to make a database driven - map based system where people can simply look at a region and see all of the options
A category like the 'Blue Mountains' doesn't have to be blue for users to view all articles with the Blue Mountains - But it does have to be blue for Blue Mountains to be visible within 'New South Wales'......
OK, I didn't realise that.
**So basically users just concern themselves with filling the article up with lots of information, and OPTIONALLY can create a separate category if that applies and if they understand how to do so... Someone (like me again) can come along at a later date and 'Create the Categories' and link them to 'BIGGER Categories'.......
Yep. The important thing is that people feel like creating an article is an easy thing to do. Most - the vast vast vast majority of - people will find the articles 1. Through Google, then 2. Through the inhouse search tool.
Browsing through the categories will actually be the least used method of finding articles, so it really isn't that crucial. It is a great feature to have, but until we can have something mind blowinginly brilliant like a completely interactive map system, it won't be used too much.
That is why the focus at this stage should really be on simply adding more and more articles - more articles = more content for Google, = more people finding TDMSKP and helping it to grow. So, the best thing I think that can be done at this point is still just adding information articles about the various sports and venues from wikipedia (and then adjusting them for TDMSKP context), and extending from those articles into other areas.
Even short, not very helpful articles, can really help.
For example, we don't even have an article on Uluru at the moment. How hard is it to create an article "Uluru is a large rock in the middle of Australia which is very attractive to tourists"
just to get the ball rolling. Now there is content there which can be improved (taking the scary bit out of the equation - the 'Create a page' step.)
If we start building it this way, with a mind towards structure, then the structure will build itself reasonably easily I think.
