How about making this "Recreation and Sports" and then we'll include games as a subcategory? Or just make Sports and Games a subcategory (or separation subcategories) of recreation? I kind of like the second one - it seems logical that sports and games are under recreation... --Aerik Sylvan 23:30, 13 Apr 2005 (PDT)

I think sports is probably a "Universe" level category (see DMOZ). We should figure out how recreation relates to sports and to everyday things like hunting and fishing. Maybe they can exist side by side in the universe. I don't see one being placed under the other.

Okay, I can buy Sports as equal to Recreation and belonging in Universe. (I was thinking, when I read your reply, one rationale might be that Sports is a huge business too - not "just" recreation... another might be that Sports is a big part of peoples lives). I don't want to automatically copy DMOZ's categories, but if the DMOZ structure makes the most sense for something, then of course let's use it! I've also been looking at Google, Yahoo, and Wikipedia (which is very different). Let's put "Games" under Recreation though, as I think it can more consistently be considered to be a recreational activity.--Aerik Sylvan 23:58, 14 Apr 2005 (PDT)

Recreation - Boardgames

I see Boardgames as being separate from the previously listed "Home Gaming and Entertainment" subcategory. There is cross over, as there is with any "hobby". In addition to boardgames, there are also Card games, Miniatures and Role Playing games. Do we see these as independent under recreation, or should there be a broader category "Games" with all of the above as subcategories?

My 2 cents would be to put "Games" under "Recreation" (makes sense) and then subcats (like "Boardgames") under "Games". --Aerik Sylvan 00:41, 1 Jul 2005 (PDT)
