The method is working very well, but is exposing some of the organizational problems that we have. Some of our books are miscategorized. Some parts of the category hierarchy are very messy or completely illogical.
We're looking for people with a good eye for consistency and a solid understanding of broad subject areas to help us organize a few places:
- Sciences. Our science hierarchy is completely messed up, and books throughout it are commonly miscategorized.
- Computing. The computing hierarchy is clearly one of those organizational systems that has grown organically in an unguided way over time. Some categories are very big, such as our generic "Programming" category. Computing books are the largest group in Wikibooks, and the one that needs the most attention
- Humanities. It's like a catch-all for the "soft sciences" books, and clearly isn't organized well.
- Miscellaneous. As it's name implies, it's like the de facto category for things that we just can't place otherwise. Most of the books in this category need to be moved to other places, and some new more-specific categories need to be created for these books
If you're interested in helping with some of these tasks, come on down to Wikibooks and take a look around. We'd be grateful for any help we could get.
