It looks like "Business As Usual" runs Monday, Aug. 29, to Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2016. Yes, no, maybe?

Dunno about all that...

But, "DOD" should probably be moved to "Department of Defense", given the Real Life header, and etc?

Yes. And it was.

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.

Wonder if we should split "President of the United States" and "Vice President of the United States" into the individual people...

But they don't appear much... Make the people into Redirects to their jobs?

Maybe treat it similarly to a state or other government agency, provide a short blurb linking to Wikipedia for each post and mention what's defined as different for the WU? If we were maintaining a wiki on the US political system, there'd be no way we could redirect George W. Bush to both POTUS and GOTGSOT at the same time.

How's that different from how it currently is?

I guess we can section off each person more clearly...

----

Category:Florida...

How do we deal with the redlinks for locations like "Alabama" and "Georgia"? Since those are Categories too... Do we just redirect to the categories?

I forget if we ever kept any inter-category linking, instead of eventually making it go to an actual Main page...

----

People should be stored at the deepest categories of a type, right? So "Reilley", should only be in Topeka, instead of Topeka and Kansas, as that's the deepest Location category?

General rule of thumb is: is there anything interesting to say about the WU version of <whatever>, as opposed to the <whatever>'s entry on the Wikipedia? If not, it shouldn't have its own entry. It still can have a category, though. Or a redirect to the Wikipedia.

Since text can be added to Category pages (See Ohio or Florida ) it's likely to be a good idea to take care of that as we go along. Not too many North Dakota or Maine supers so far.

How many readers in Germany can name all the major cities in Kansas? It's probably better to give the users searching for information a chance of success whether they remember the city or the state.

Category:Teleporter is being used, but doesn't exist.

Move all of them to Warper, or is it a category we wanna keep?

----

Not sure why "Poe Room Assignments" calls "Striatura Blu", as "Blue Streak (student)"... Should we move her to that??

Oh, Elrod is the one that added it. Hmm. *shrugs*

It has 4 members, which is why I mentioned it in Powers.

It would be useful for "who can manage this?" questions, as a subcategory of Warper.
