Category usage

Okay, so I've noticed some categories being added to the wrong pages. I'm here to discuss how categories are to be added to pages.

Character Pages

DO NOT add the category "Characters". That category is used to categorize all the subcategories for characters. Instead, the five main characters will receive "Main Characters" and "Season 1 Characters" in that order. People like Gavin and The Dad, who we know will be recurring will receive the categories "Recurring Characters" and "Season 1 Characters". Minor one-time characters will be in the category "Episodic Characters" and "Season 1 Characters". There is no "One-Time Character" category.

Episode Pages

Unless it is the season premiere or season finale, the only category on those pages should be "Season 1 Episodes".

Cast Pages

It is just like the character pages, but replace the word "Characters" with "Cast"

If you have anything to say, please let me know in the comments section below. Happy editing! :D

It's okay, I've handled it :) This forum is just a reference for people to use in the future so these mistakes don't happen again.

I haven't really started to actively edit on this wiki like I do with HIMYM wiki, I plan to if/when the show picks up. I was just wondering if we'd be getting templates on this wiki, for example Wikipedia templates that direct you to wikipedia pages. These are especially helpful when adding to "Allusions and Outside References".

Maybe. That's something to worry about later on though :P I was thinking about a template to add at the end of a character racap. One that says what episode the events happened in.

I wish I were better at templates, I think we should create them later on though, we should get some really good articles first.

This might be a stupid question but will we have categories like, males, females, relationships, married, and such? Those are some categories on HIMYM wiki, I don't know if you can put those categories in or even if you want to, but it's all up to Admins.

Well once the show launches and the Wiki gets big enough we will probably add categories liek that, but not too excessively.

Honestly, I think the females and males categories are stupid. It's simply not needed. We know that the character is male or female from their pictures. There might be categories like "Sally's love interests" and stuff, but I don't want there to be a lot of unneeded categories.

Yeah that's true
