To make education program resources and documentation more findable

Whether manually or with some magical wiki tool (or bot), please add categories, the same categories, to all education portal pages.

There are now several new and updated subcategories for Category:Wikipedia Education Program:

TFlanagan-WMF raised the priority of this task from to Needs Triage.
TFlanagan-WMF updated the task description. (Show Details)

I added several pages into both categories. Not sure if it's complete, though, as they're not currently super find-able. haha, hence the point of doing this. Don't want to mark this as complete because there are surely tons of pages missing.

Jami-WikiEd triaged this task as Low priority.
Jami-WikiEd set Security to None.
Jami-WikiEd moved this task from Backlog to Claimed / in progress on the Education-Collab board.

@Jami-WikiEd: I just want to say: WOW! :)

A visit to Outreach wiki's recent changes feed earlier this month left me amazed and humbled by the amount of work you'd done on this task.

You added so many categories, in fact, that I actually felt compelled to do math voluntarily just to quantify it!

True fact #1: These edits got you contributing on Outreach wiki again -- and you hadn't been active at Outreach wiki in almost 11 months.

True fact #2: These edits comprise more than two thirds (+66%) of your total edits at Outreach wiki ever.

That's just awesome, and so are you! I'd award you a Phabricator Barnstar if I could, but we don't have one... yet... ;)

In the meantime, thank you, Jami; this helps so much.

P.S. @Esh77 created another category-related Collab task. I'm pinging her here since these two tasks seem related.

Thanks @Base for updating the task description. I was just about to do that. :) As per our conversation offline about this category seeming to be an artifact of the old portal structure. We agreed that it was a duplication of efforts and decided to eliminate it. Going forward, we'll just use Category:Wikipedia Education Program. Hooray for simplification! I just wish we'd decided this sooner! :]

@Base and @Jami-WikiEd, can you please give us an update on the status of Category:Wikipedia Education Program?

@Base is there a bot that can cross check the number of subpages of Outreach:Education? It would be great to know if the number of pages in the category equal the number of subpages on the portal without having to check and count them manually. :\

@Jami-WikiEd: Hi! This task has been assigned to you a while ago. Could you maybe share a status update? Are you still working (or still plan to work) on this task? Or is there anything that others could help with? (If you do not plan to work on this task anymore, please remove yourself as assignee (via Add Action...Assign / Claim in the dropdown menu) so others could work on it.) Thanks a lot!

I did work on this 4 years ago but did not have any plans to do additional work (it was unclear what anyone still needed to be done). I'm happy to remove myself.

Declining this task per T247235. Feel free to reopen and assign to yourself if you plan to work on this - thanks!
