The Category field of UploadWizard doesn't enable to go through the category tree up and down
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

UploadWizard lacks a function similar to HotCat to enable to go through the category tree up and down (↓), (↑). That causes that uploaders use categories as keywords instead as structured categorization system and cannot find appropriate categories easily.

@Aklapper: If nobody is capable to make functionality of UploadWizard at least comparable with the basic upload form, UploadWizard should be suspended and the normal upload form should be set back as the default one. Half-baked UploadWizard impedes and complicates proper categorization of new uploads and supports bad habits and misapprehension of uploaders. That is utterly counter-productive.

That sounds like a valid meta-level discussion for a multimedia list and is unrelated to the question about this task. Assuming you don't plan to work on this then.
