Does this page need to be improved?

Firstly, shouldn't this page be moved to Help:Categories? I think usage of plural form of nouns is more common to ArchWiki and will be more consistent with other pages.

Also, I've found this article not very helpful since it's not clearly describes some moments like:

  • That in MediaWiki categories are simply pages of "Caterogy:" namespace, that are just handled in some special way.
  • Explanation of adding/moving page to categories is too complicated: I think it's enough to explain that the simply editing a list of "special" category links in source code does all the magic, whenever the category page actually created or not.
  • Where to place category links in source code? Need to provide some generic example containing Template:Lowercase title, interlang. links and Related articles block.
  • Stucture of categories in ArchWiki: hierarchy of "maintenance" and "thematical" categories; some notes about common root category (Category:Languages) and language-specific root categories (ex. Category:English).
  • Some recommendations about when the new categories should and when shouldn't be created. How user could find appropriate category for its newly created article?
  • References to MediaWiki documentation.
