You see, topics are organized by categories, and when people what to know some sth from some spesific “area”, I would like to give them a reference link.
When I want to ref a topic, it’s very easy to give out the url of that topic and the url will not be changed no matter whether the topic is changed to the other category or not. Like sometimes one topic will change place from “Support” to “FAQ” category.
But, sometimes, the subcategory place will also be changed, only at that time, the category url will be changed, like form
Like when you ref the support category, you have https://meta.discourse.org/c/support And when you want to ref the subcategory wordpress, you have https://meta.discourse.org/c/support/wordpress But if someday the administer change the wordpress from being the subcategory to a main category, the ref will be https://meta.discourse.org/c/wordpress Or if the administer change the wordpress to be subcateogry of community, the ref will be https://meta.discourse.org/c/community/wordpress
Although that category name itself is not changed, but the reference link is changed, and the raw link will only lead to some “Oops, seems the webpage does not exist” message.
Should we just give the subcategory an unique url? Or do we have to ref the link of “About this category” topic?
