I would like to advertise use of categories.

Categories are the way to find articles on wiki based web pages.
It is automated way to index them.

This doesn't exclude or eliminate need for manually maintained indexes, but makes content accessibility maintenance easier.

How to categorize articles?
Look in list of existing categories
http://en.opensuse.org/Special:Categories
http://de.opensuse.org/Spezial:Categories
http://fr.opensuse.org/Special:Categories
etc.
and try to find one or more where article fit.
If there is none make your own.

"I don't want to make mistake", "How to select category to fit the best", "How to get feedback" and many more questions were my concern for a long time, but on wiki (any wiki) there is no such thing as making mistake, at least not permanent.
Sooner or later someone will find it and correct.

Putting "Browse openSUSE" link in the left frame or/and top line of every page would improve users ability to find, read and edit wiki content.

I would like to see your opinion (this includes Core Team - wiki administrators).

Rajko.
