Description Rotem Liss 2006-05-02 16:41:32 UTC
When using simple lists of articles, we can link to articles which are not
exist, and someone may write them. However, in categories it's not possible, and
we have to list the articles which are not exist in the category description
page, above the articles themselves. I suggest to create a tag or something
where we can list these articles, and they will be shown in the category as red
links. It may help a lot to the writers.

Not sure about this idea as it changes the fundamental attitude to categories;
the current system is built around the whole concept that pages define their
parent categories; categories do not define their members.
