Expanding the "Interventions" category

Now that the concept of interventions has been clarified (autistic, binary, triangular) on the main page for this topic, perhaps we consider creating sub-categories for the main wiki category of Interventions. No rush, open to thoughts. -- RayBirks 11:40, 12 December 2010 (CST)

I support this. Autistic intervention may be a rather small category, but binary and triangular intervention both have a fairly wide range of types and examples. Like you say, there's no rush now, but in the long-term, dividing up the category will help promote better organisation of the articles. -- Six 11:49, 12 December 2010 (CST)

Number 6, better organization (no matter how one spells it!) of articles is always worthwhile, though waiting here might be just fine. I was more on the teaching angle, that is, readers could see the differences very early and get those brain pathways opened up. Maybe the sub-category would look something like "Interventions (binary)". -- RayBirks 13:03, 12 December 2010 (CST)
Yes, that is another benefit of subcategorisation (or, indeed, subcategorization!) As a matter of subjective preference, I'd prefer to see the subcategories labeled like 'Binary Interventions'. -- Six 23:54, 12 December 2010 (CST)
"Subjective preference??? But...but...but that's just wrong!" (heh heh) Sorry, I don't get to make economic theory jokes very often.  :) -- RayBirks 06:44, 13 December 2010 (CST)
Just a nitpick, but for consistency in capitalization "Binary interventions" would be better. --Forgottenman (talk) 07:43, 13 December 2010 (CST)
Agreed. The capital I in "Interventions" was a typo. -- Six 07:55, 13 December 2010 (CST)
