    If I understand what you're asking for, wouldn't this require that you have multiple domain lists, one for each category, so that items added to each separate list are properly added to the correct category?

    Or would you somehow designate your domain list as corresponding only to one category, which means that all domains added to that list would automatically be members of that category? What happens if you want to block a domain that belong to a different category? How would you add it to your list without voting to miscategorize it?

    You are correct,  we would have a domain list called "Games" and any domain added to that would be voted to be tagged as Games.

    We currently have separate domain lists for a few categories such as games and video sharing, mostly to help us remember why it was blocked as the domain name can sometimes be misleading. We also have some generic ones that it wouldn't work for, such as "Allowed for Teachers" and in that case we wouldn't link it to a category tag.

    ContentKeeper do a similar concept from memory, you would have local category lists that would be uploaded to CK for review to be included in the global category lists.

    Ok, you must be referring to the Umbrella line of products. In the free and Enterprise products that I'm currently using I only have two lists for each network: Blacklist and Whitelist. This idea certainly wouldn't work with those products, but if does indeed Umbrella allows for multiple lists it might just work.

    The most difficult part that I'd see with this would be to somehow link up the lists with a specific category. It might be best to prepopulate with fixed list that directly corresponds to a specific category, but that could lead to a lot of clutter with lists that many might not use. Once the list was created and linked a mechanism for automatically voting for a domain that is added could be worked out, along with a way to not rescind a vote if something was removed from a list.
