This is our top-level [[special:categories|category]] (and, mixing metaphors, our root category). Other wikis use terms such as "Browse" or "Fundamental".
+
 
+
This category may be used to categorize various topics on BluWiki, such as by people, places, religion, interests, etc. When it gets to have 20-30  subcategories, some of them may be more easily found if they are moved "down" one level to be subcategories of a remaining 2nd-level category.

+
 
+
'''To add pages or subcategories automatically''' to any category, add to them the following (preferably near the bottom):''
+
<nowiki>[[category:</nowiki>''categoryname''<nowiki>]]</nowiki>
+
 
+
 
+
'''All users are urged to see that:'''
+
# '''every "article" is in at least one category''' (and preferably two or more if at all applicable - this can be more flexible than subcategories can be, eg an article can be in a category even if only a small part of it is covered by the category; ''article "Russia"'' can be in categories "Europe" and "Asia")
+
# '''every category except this one is in at least one parent category''' (and may sometimes be suitable in two or more, provided that its subject-matter is wholly within the parent cat's scope; ''category "Russia" should not'' be in categories "Europe" and "Asia" because that will lead to circularity, endless loops, and possible duplication and other waste of effort).
