Category talk:Factory Calibration Procedure

Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is an experiment to see whether it is practical to put a category tag on files so we can get an autogenerated list of files of a certain type. It is clumsy because the category tag is in the discussion page, so the autogenerated index links to the discussion pages of the files, not the files themselves. This might be confusing to somebody who isn't familiar with how Mediawiki works. Maybe having a blurb at the top of every file discussion page will avoid this confusion. For example: "This is the discussion page. Click on the File tab above to get the actual file." Does this seem like a good direction, or it the whole thing too hacky to be worthwhile?

I don't get it - why not categorize the files themselves? I just did that for Tek 3l5 fcp aug 1967.pdf, see this category page for the result (it lists pages and media under separate headlines). --Peter (talk) 12:17, 5 June 2019 (PDT)

Sounds great. I wasn't aware that one could edit the File: pages. I'll start adding the Factory Calibration Procedure category tag on all of the factory calibration procedure scans. Kurt (talk) 13:05, 5 June 2019 (PDT)

Ah, I see. Well, we never had too many categorized files - Category:Coaxial connectors and some others being the exception. There is a system report for uncategorized Files, BTW. --Peter (talk) 23:20, 5 June 2019 (PDT)

I'm thinking of also tagging them with at "Needs OCR" category. Seem reasonable? Kurt (talk) 17:49, 6 June 2019 (PDT)
