Description Stefan 2005-11-15 09:22:40 UTC
This is no bug, but a feature Request (Everytime i click on "bug/feature
submissions", i end here ;))

For now, you can list the articles by category. For example: "George W. Bush" is
in the categorys "Presidents of the United States", "1946 births" and "People
from Texas". When i look in one of these categorys, i see many many articles,
but finding "George W. Bush" is not easy.

My feature request is, that you can select in what category a article must be.
In my example you select, that you only wanna see any articles, which is in the
categorys "1946 births" and "People from Texas" and "Presidents of the United
States". So, the list is much clear and i can find the specific article, i am
search for. Of course, the example is not the best, but i should show you, what
i mean.

You want to be able to narrow a category view by looking at the intersection of
multiple categories.  Possibly even a boolean search.
I think wikinews has an extension that can do something like that.

Something like this might also eliminate the need for overspecific categories,
like [[Category:LGBT murderers]], recently voted on
