What is a category?

A category is a Reverse Index to related Wiki pages. Instead of a category page containing forward links to pages of that category, page authors can put a reference to one or more categories on their pages. By clicking on the title of a category page, Wiki will list the pages referenced to that category.

For instance:

Someone adds the category title 'CategoryComicBooks' at the bottom of a page. When someone clicks the link to that category, they are taken to that category's page. That page may or may not have a more detailed description of what pages it applies to (wiki users are, of course, encouraged to provide those descriptions), but in any case, if the title of that page is then clicked, Wiki will provide a list of all pages having that category's link in them.

To see a list of all categories, click the title of this page. To view the list of categories in alphabetical order, click the LikePages link at the bottom of this page or try . What follows on this page is a list of some categories grouped by subject.

Some easy rules for editing this page:

create a category only when that category is really needed (be picky)

create concise descriptions (as few words as possible)

create useful descriptions (don't merely repeat the category name)

keep everything in alphabetical order

only after dealing with all the Back Links (hundreds, sometimes thousands) do you delete or rename a category

only when it really makes sense do you put entries into multiple sections
