Category talk:DEC Boards

Limited usability

This category is not, I think, very useful. If one tagged every article that described a DEC board with it, the cat would include hundreds of boards, with no way to select the ones one is interested in. (The MediaWiki software has no way to search for articles that are in e.g. both Category: DEC Boards and Category: QBUS Serial Interfaces; so adding the first category to them wouldn't add much to one's ability to find them - which is, after all, the whole point of the category system.)

One could set up a whole new category structure of things like Category: QBUS Serial Interface Boards, and include all those sub-categories in the Category: DEC Boards category, but that's just going to mostly duplicate things like Category: QBUS Serial Interfaces; so, no benefit for the extra work.
