Purpose of this category

Before someone starts pointing out how this might be an unnecessary category, please take a moment to think about it. Not only does this category ensure that this wiki's content is "symmetrical" across all languages (no exception to English), it is also a place to categorize some top-level categories such as Glossary, Modding, Feedback, Steam, to name some. I think it's not only a sensible option, but a necessary one in what regards to documentation maintenance.

To think the fact that all the links on the navigation bar and main page directly lead to English pages implies that English is (implicitly) the "base" language for the wiki is slightly chauvinistic. Just stating my reasons, you are free to object and present your reasons as well. :) --Etset 05:15, 22 Feb 2008 (PST)
