So, currently we have Category:1000 sets, 2000 sets, etc, then when it gets to five digits, it's 10000 sets, 20000 sets, ie going up by 10000 instead of 1000. Since LEGO's changed over to a five-digit numbering system, I propose we go up by 1000 for five-digit numbers as well now. NightblazeSaber 23:32, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

  • So we'd end up having categories like "Category:72000 sets" and "Category:39000 sets". I'm not sure yet, we don't use this method for three-digits. -Konicle2 23:36, September 13, 2012 (UTC)
    • Yeah. The point of it is basically so the sets are grouped in groups of 1000, not 10000, making it easier to navigate. NightblazeSaber 23:38, September 13, 2012 (UTC)
      • But there would be roughly 100 cats, assuming they use 1000 all the way to 99000 in the 5 digit system. - nxt
  • Just realized - if this happens we would have to create a lot more List of Set References pages too. -Konicle2 15:49, September 14, 2012 (UTC)
  • All of them? I'd rather not, I find them a great source of redlinks and thus far more useful to navigate sets than clicking on categories. -Konicle2 19:49, September 14, 2012 (UTC)
  • Okay, I guess. --Berrybrick (Talk) 18:53, September 14, 2012 (UTC)
