Question away!

  • I don't see a category or subcategory that covers a certain subject. How can I create or suggest one?

Categories and subcategories are created automatically when someone inserts a category tag at the end of their article, pointing to a non-existent category. So, for example, if you wanted to make a category 'Folklore and Mythology', simply put [[Category:Folklore and Mythology]] as the last line of your article. Note that putting this tag at the end of your article also automatically inserts a link to that article on the new category page.

If you think that the new category is actually a sub-category of one of the main categories, then do the same thing on the new sub-category page that has just been created. That is, go to the sub-category page for "Folklore and Mythology" (there should be a link at the end of the new article you created above), and edit that page, putting [[Category:Higher Category Name]] at the end of the page (I actually think Folklore and Mythology is a top-end category...but I thought it worthwhile going through the process in case anyone needs to make a new subcategory).

Please try and fit articles within the current categories - if it doesn't fit under a sub-category, then often it can go under the top-end category as a 'general' associated topic. If you make a new category don't be surprised if the article is moved to an existing one (if it fits). New categories should only be created as a last resort (in the case of 'Folklore and Mythology' though, I think it warrants its own category).

Note that for new categories to show up on the front page, I need to add them there - so if a new category is created but doesn't show up on the main page, leave a message in my Talk page.
