Category:Entry point (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View log)


  1. Many are probably not entry points anymore, (there's also Category:Entry points which is a redirect to this category but contains articles). Christopher (talk) 15:04, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
  2. ~ FluffyRatTomato t 10:00, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
  3. Much like our pointless Priority system — this seems like an 'entry point' for editor overhead, if nothing else. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 09:14, 30 May 2017 (UTC)


  1. Since we don't have server access, this is how I tried to determine an "entry point": [1] Modify the following URL to get a depersonalized Google search: https://www.google.com/search?q=search%20terms&pws=0 [2] If the RatWiki article is near the top for a search term, I'd call it an "entry point". That said, the two categories should probably be merged. Herr FüzzyCätPötätö (talk/stalk) 16:42, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
    What does the "&pws=0" bit do? Christopher (talk) 18:21, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
    Depersonalizes the search. FuzzyCatPotato!™ (talk/stalk) 01:05, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
    I wouldn't class everything that's near the top as an entry point, if we're the top result for "I AM A DONALD TRUMP AND 2 + 2 = 5 I ALSO LIKE MARSHMALLOWES AND HAPPINESS AND CHEESEBURGERS" (we're not, I checked) would you class it as an entry point? I doubt many people would Google that. Christopher (talk) 19:42, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
    For an actual example An archive for your userpage at archive.is is the top result for this but I wouldn't put your userpage in entry point because of it. Christopher (talk) 19:46, 9 May 2017 (UTC)



Shouldn't we filter out those that aren't entry points anymore and then find out if the category needs deletion or not? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 20:21, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

The problem is only someone with server access can tell whether or not something is still an entry point. Tmtoulouse is AWOL and David Gerard (who I believe is the only other person with server access?) isn't nearly active enough to police every removal or addition of the category.
