As the Gerontology Wiki continues to expand, we need to alter/expand categorization in order to serve the primary purpose of categorization, which is to group similar topics/continuities.

I note that Lowell K. Bridwell died in 1986, so he's added to the "1986 deaths" category. But he died at 62.

Going forward, we need sub-categories for supercentenarian deaths, or something like "1986 supercentenarian deaths."

The Gerontology Wiki is for all facets of gerontology, and as such, the focus on supercentenarians eventually will be lost. And that's O.K. The main reason that the focus is currently on supercentenarian material is because much of that material was being recently deleted on Wikipedia.

In the long run, the Gerontology Wiki will include coverage on all aspects of gerontology.

As such, we need to properly prepare for category expansions, sub-categorizations, or category splits.Ryoung122 (talk) 19:25, February 8, 2016 (UTC)
