    Overview & Pattern Breakdown of Proposals

    One of the primary methodologies for identifying people's relationships with abstract concepts is by the use of categorisation by Design Patterns. Patterns have thus far been derived from Task Force members' favourites pages. Many (in fact almost all) of the proposals do indeed fall within certain clearly discernible patterns, and a brief breakdown of these by pattern type is set out below. Not all Proposals fit neatly, and a certain amount of shoe-horning has necessarily taken place, and some Proposals fit neatly across multiple Pattern types; where duplication occurs, a Proposal will be marked accordingly.

    This is not a static list, please add proposals as they are identified and create new and modify existing patterns as need arises.
