So, why does {{Cat2}} need subst:? It works fine without it, and using subst: just lengthens typing time. Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 16:21, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

It keeps the coding consistant with every one of the 1300+ pages (not including everything outside of mainspace); It makes everything much more obvious in the coding, which is a good thing, because the more obvious the coding is, the easier it is for new users to understand what to do; you know how many new users screw up both link templates and categorization? This would make it exponentially harder for them to understand what to do. We don't weant editing to be hard, we want it to be easy, so they aren't scared away when the get yelled at for screwing up, and they would screw this up so much... need I go on?

Subcategories and categories

Does a category belong in the same article as its subcategory? Because it looks to me like Category:Pokémon cards is ridiculously huge. --Raijinili 13:29, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
