Godville Times sections

I'm delighted about this category, as I'd actually never discovered these gems! I hope, as do others, we might have someone's inspiration sparked for some more!

I notice that Wanted is included here, and it's not-like-the-other-ones. So, I wonder: should all the Godville Times sections with a GodWiki page be categorised here? They are currently included in Category:Backstage and included in the text of the Godville Times page, and so far just one is here. Or, is including the Godville Times itself enough, and leave each section out?

I'm inclined to the latter (keep Godville Times in the category, but not each individual section). I think it would dilute the category and distract from what's really great about it — the user-created journalistic content. --Djonni (talk) 14:10, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

Oh, if there are separate articles for other Godville Times sections that aren't included in the category, it's only because I didn't discover them in looking around for articles to add. My idea was that anything related to the Godville Times, along with any user-related journalism and anything else that qualifies as "journalism", would all be categorized here.
I don't think you can really "dilute" a category with only 10 articles in it to begin with. But if that were really a worry, we could always create a separate sub-category just for "Godly journalism" or whatever, exclusively. This category, though, is Category:Journalism, which IMHO any Godville Times-related articles couldn't possibly not fit into. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 05:18, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
Turns out there was only one other section with its own page so far, Daily Forecast, so any question of dilution is pretty moot. I imagined there'd be many more than there are. (I'm pretty surprised that the Bingo and Crossword games haven't yet earned their own pages, as popular as they are!) --Djonni (talk) 07:40, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
Well, depends whether you count the degree to which Omnibus List, and all of the "List of ______" articles exist primarily as a support system for people's crossword-solving ambitions. In a sense, about half of all the editorial activity on the wiki's core article content is made up of work on crossword articles.
But aside from that... it's a crossword, something universally understood that it's hard to really say a whole lot about, I guess. (Still, it is kind of surprising that nobody's tried to say more anyway.) -- FeRDNYC (talk) 00:10, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
