Category talk:Authors by alphabetical order

From Wikisource
Jump to: navigation, search

Please provide an easier way of getting at the various lists (authors, dates, genres). Currently you have to keep clicking down (again and again) many seemingly empty or nearly empty categories, and you get nowhere and give up. Also the categories give misleading information about what your destination is, since they say that something only has for example 2 categories, which does not seem promising and makes the user give up. However these two categories may contain the long list of many authors that you are seeking.

It would be far better if for example, the user seeking to browse a list of authors did not have to click down several empty levels to get to any names, but was presented with a page full of authors whose names began with "A", and with links to the Bs, Cs, etc. And the Abs, Acs etc. if required. 89.242.112.19 11:48, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

There is a discuison at Wikisource:Scriptorium#Why_are_the_lists_of_authors.2C_etc_so_hidden_away.3F on the topic. JeepdaySock (talk) 16:27, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
