Welcome to Project:Categorization, which concerns the proper categorization of all content on Lotro-Wiki.


The Categorization Guidelines are found on this page: Help: Categorization. These Guidelines should be used as a reference for all categorization on Lotro-Wiki.


All Categories, which can be found at Special:Categories.

An organized overview of all major categories and subcategories is found beginning at the "Top Level Category"


  • The review of all categories and the Category tree structure is ongoing.


  • All major Categories are in place.
Additions to the bottom levels of the Category trees can usually be handled by the projects working on those categories.
Category updates are usually directly related to "Expansions" of the game by Turbine.

Work In Progress

  • Updating Documentation and Guidelines.
  • Efforts are ongoing to move pages found in top-level categories into their appropriate sub-categories.
  • Review of Category:Profession Items, as they are not being used properly. Right now Category:Crafted Items, seems to hold all Crafting related stuff including the Professions Component Items‎ Category which is really in the wrong place cause these are components used by the profession NOT produced Matthew.zellmer (talk) 20:23, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Review of static Category index pages (e.g. Deed farming locations and Bree-land Deeds) they hold duplicate data pulled from Category:Slayer Deeds and the like they are trouble because they are not dynamically updated like the regular category. suggest removal or integration into Category pages themselves Matthew.zellmer (talk) 20:10, 24 February 2014 (UTC)
Discussed topic with User_talk:Magill#Deed_farming_locations and User:Matthew.zellmer#Static_Category_index_pages will leave for other voices in case there is a desire to keep these pages. Matthew.zellmer (talk) 20:33, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
