Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Categories/Limit which namespaces are allowed in a category on the category page itself/Proposal

Other languages:
  • Problem: In order to avoid unwanted pages from polluting categories intended for other namespaces, we waste our time and effort manually removing or commenting out [[Category:...]] and coding templates so that they add categories only in certain namespaces.
  • Proposed solution: A magic word or extension tag to be used inside category wikitext that determines which namespaces are allowed (or not allowed) in the category.
  • Who would benefit: Readers and editors
