Hi Folks, do we want to put a link to every page on the community portal or do we want to instead add a link on the community portal to Category:Home and start seriously thinking about what category / sub category to pace each article into and start building this out? --David Mathis 12:40, 6 June 2011 (CDT)

David, if you think that we have enough pages in enough categories to make that worthwhile, I would say fine. I was just holding it off until I began to see how it worked and we had some pages to make it useful. We will probably have a pretty bare portal page unless we can find something else useful to add. --Ted Vollers 12:53, 6 June 2011 (CDT)
I agree Ted. I think some of the most important links should remain on the portal page as highlighted articles that build the MBT foundation. I wasn't suggesting removing those. I was simply suggesting that at some point, as we create more and more pages, that page will lose effectiveness unless we have a place that people can go like Category:Home that organizes the pages into a logical navigable structure. I don't have the required MBT knowledge to know which articles are the most important for the community portal "frontpage". I will have to leave that up to you.
It's also worth noting that a page can be associated with multiple categories. Just add multiple category tags to the bottom of a page. The same goes for categories. A category can have multiple parent categories by linking it to multiple categories within the category text.
