Description penubag 2009-03-24 02:34:42 UTC
It should be a MW default to be able to search for pages in two or more categories. There could be so many benefits to this feature. I could go on a rant on how 90% of all the article categories are useless because of the inability for any useful applications. 
It would be nice if I could specify a few categories like, "All articles lacking sources", "Physics", and "Aerodynamics" so I can effectively work on articles that I know something about instead of sifting through a million page category list of pages under "articles lacking sources". The toolserver category search only allows up to 2 categories so it'd be nice if this was a MW default as it should be. Thank you for time, I know this is easier said then done.
