Improve HotCat

  • Problem: Commons HotCat only shows 5 lines at a go. When a category has numerous subsections (100-200 or more) to select from, this makes hitting the right one very difficult, as a tiny movement of the mouse scroll wheel and you flick past 20 or 30 subcategory names.
  • Who would benefit: HotCat users at Commons
  • Proposed solution: Make HotCat show 50 lines at a go, instead of just 5

  • Have you asked the HotCat developers to make this change? --Izno (talk) 04:27, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
  • I think that a good interface could be a centered floating menu, like the "merge Wikidata item" and the "add interwiki" menus. --NaBUru38 (talk) 18:16, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
