Could not see it yet, they're working on that maintenance they announced.

by the way, with the error message there is a Wikimedia logo with the wording that you can change that to your own image. Might be a good idea since there is a Java code term in the Wikimedia image right now.

Apparently, whatever bump they had removed my changes.

The new page is at:

Clarification

I added several questions to the Talk page on the wiki to get clarification.

Okay, my question is whether we should post here or in the Wiki Talk. It seems like there should be some consistency.

I took a very quick look at the Talk which means that I just skimmed it. I do not have time right now to read it, but want to give my initial thoughts while I have them in my mind. I see that it is talking about the US / State / County structure. What about down another level like the city level too?

From a quick structural point of view, I would agree.

I am taking us on a little side road. Right now, we have quite a few categories. For example, Alabama, Alaska, United States, etc. It appears that the Alabama category is a sub-category of United States. Is there a way to not view Alabama on the main category list, but only a sub-category of the US? It would make browsing by category easier (and more managable) especially when thousands of categories may exist. If that is possible, I think it would be nice to have a Country category, that has United States, that has Alabama.
