Regarding the number of tips using :map, I'm not sure about the pertinency of this category.

The number of acceptable tips may be worse than what already happens with the current Category:Usage. IMHO, we'll have to limit the scope of this category to how :map works, and to rebinding special keys.

(Note: I'm using the talk page and not the mailing list to keep track of the choices we'll make accessible to future tips maintainers) --Luc Hermitte 14:23, 4 September 2007 (UTC)


I think you're saying that there is a potential for a very large number of tips to be placed in the Map category, because many tips mention mapping. And that would make the category pretty useless. I agree.

We could put a policy statement on the Category:Map page, something like:

Only add [[Category:Map]] to a tip if the tip discusses how the :map command works, or how to map special keys.
Many tips use mappings. We don't want each of those tips in this category.

Yes. That's what I was referring to.

The policy statement seems fine to me.

BTW, if we restrict this category to how it works (and how to workaround some keyboard issues), won't it means the category is a subcategory of Category:Scripting, and a subcategory of something else (Category:Usage?/Category:I18n?) ?
