Something I noticed while looking at Category:DeviantART Wikifurries. The pages seems to list itself as its own subcategory, resulting into an infinite loop of subcategories.

And it isn't the only one eiter. I noticed the same thing in at least Category:Anthrocon Wikifurries and Category:Califur Wikifurries.

Also, I feel that DeviantArt Wikifurries should propably be a subcategory of Category:Wikifurries. As a very recent user, I did not feel confident enough to start fidding with the category pages, so I tought I'd just point it out here. --DJ Pirtu 20:03, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

You're right. The issue was that the category boxes automatically included the page into the category, even if that page was a category itself. I've solved this for now on most of our pages by substituting the template with the text of the template, and removing the category from that. Another possible way is editing the template to figure out the page namespace and not display on category pages, which I did at {{User Anthrocon}}. A third way is to just not have the template on that page and use the image instead.
As for the second part, it is. You just didn't get to the D's. Confusingly, it sorts both categories and normal pages, so you have to click "Next 200" to see the rest. :-) --GreenReaper(talk) 08:20, 9 December 2007 (UTC)
