**Move country page content into a new subcategory/country page.  Sometimes this may serve as introduction to the language pages of a country as well.  We may be able to list language pages on this page later using an extension.
 
**Move [[:Category:Individuals]] pages to [[:Category:Bios]] pages and retitle them with Firstname Lastname (instead of last first).

- '''Note on naming conventions''': Hi Mark, I do not agree with the use of CamelCase, which is machine language, though you could write your name "Firstname Lastname". However, the existing convention, taken from the library and documentation world, is "Lastname, Firstname". Since there are already hundreds of entries in that format, please let's stick to it.
 
 
 
# Write a page on naming conventions.  Currently people are named two ways - for refernece LastName, FirstName and for editing the wiki FirstInitialLastName.  For working within the wiki however, people will not be writing LastName, FirstName, too difficult. Maybe FirstInitialLastName, but more naturally is just your name. [[MarkDilley]]
