What would you like to do?
When you come across questions that have no place in WikiAnswers, there is a place where we store them. The button to your left marked "trash" will access a menu for all the c…urrent categories that are available to supervisors in which to put these questions. If in doubt about which of the categories to use, be safe and put it in the "trash completely" category. Should there be a question about it, the supervisor of that category will move it. Once you have trashed the question you are unsure about into the Harmful Questions to Delete category (trashed completely) it is advisable to consult a Supervisor who is well learned in trashing procedures. Why shouldn't the inappropriate questions be deleted instead of merged into a protected category? The reason we collect them in one place is so that subsequent people who asked that question will be routed to an appropriate answer. If the alternate wordings are deleted then when they are asked again they will become separate unprotected questions. At that point, until a supervisor catches it and merges it again (added work for the supervisor) the new question could be answered with objectionable or harmful information! A current list of the catch-all categories and/or questions being used on WikiAnswers is listed below. You can also view the Catch All Questions category page for a listing. WikiAnswers Catch-All Categories Use the trash/catch-all pop-up by selecting Trash for a question or alternate to move a question into a catch-all category. When non-supervisors attempt to view a question in one of these categories they will be redirected to the answer to one of these questions: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What is inappropriate subject matter for WikiAnswers Miscellaneous questions that are inappropriate. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What questions do not have enough information to be answered on WikiAnswers?

Nonsense questions that add no value to the site into this question. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why is cyberbullying not allowed on WikiAnswers? Questions like "Is (name) gay?" or "Is (name) an idiot?" for people who are not celebrities. These should be questions containing only a first name. Questions containing non-celebrity first and last names should be trashed completely. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Can you show pictures or photos of inappropriate subjects on WikiAnswers? Questions asking WikiAnswers to show images of inappropriate subjects. Do not classify questions that ask for an image just because we cannot legally or technically post them a picture - instead, reformat the question into "Where can you find pictures of (subject matter)?" http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What should you do if you are contemplating suicide? Questions about how to commit suicide. Please note that if the question is asking about suicide statistics, suicide prevention or signs of suicide, it does not need to be trashed.

Yes, it's called "Questions about WikiAnswers" and this question is in that category!
WikiAnswers does NOT have a category relating to how to commit suicide; the category is part of the Catch-All Category. Questions on the subject are added to the related quest…ion below, which provides some important links and commentary on Suicide Prevention.
"WikiAnswers Local" is a placeholder category for questions about certain countries. No new questions should be added to the main "WikiAnswers Local" category.
No, not yet.
There is no specific 'Jokes Category' on WikiAnswers. But there are two categories called the 'Humor and Amusemet Corner' and 'The Most Amusing Questions Ever Asked On WikiA…nswers' where you can post cheesy questions or silly, but not inappropriate questions. (See related links for a link to the categories)
The "Math" category with eight Supervisors.
No, not yet. There are currently (June 2010) only a handful of questions on this topic. If there are enough questions to warrant opening up a subcategory, we will be happy to …do so.
To have a category, there must be a certain number of questions belonging to that category, usually a minimum of 100. However, many categories are not 'stand alone' subjects a…nd could be properly addressed in another category. As new subjects emerge Answers.com reviews the categories and adds to them.
The categories that are open only for supervisors are the catch-all categories. Note: 'Catch-all Questions' the category, not the catch-all categories (e.x. 'Adds No Value') i…s able to be viewed by regular contributors and regular contributors have the ability to add questions there.
See 'related links'.
I would say 'uncategorized'. It has lots of questions and they are always being moved to and fro.
All standard Wikianswer rules apply to the topic. Usually, all new answers will be reviewed to make sure they are acceptable. Because there are many supervisors for this categ…ory, if you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to message us. Please refrain from using links in your answer unless you really NEED to. All answers with unnecessary links will be deleted. Have fun and be honest, all contributions help the community.
There are many categories because people ask many questions. WikiAnswers creates new categories every day.
Right now, it looks like the Blufr category is the least popular, but that changes by the day, or depending on the time period you are looking at.
Chris Whitten, the founder of FAQ Farm, which later became WikiAnswers, was most likely the supervisor of the first few categories on the site. Others who would have been supe…rvisors of the early categories are Crystal, Neila222 and RoyR.
As of August 27, 2011 here are the Primary and Secondary categories, 144 in total, without supervisors: Veterinary MedicineZoology or Animal BiologyReal EstateAntique & Class…ic CarsAuto Parts and RepairsCar BuyingCar RentalsCar SellingMiscellaneous VehiclesSafe Driving TechniquesTransportation AccidentsEntertainment & ArtsCelebritiesGamesMuseumsBakingCerealFood PreservationPoultrySeafoodAging and Life ExtensionBeautyDoctorsMedical InsuranceMedical RecordsMedical TechnologiesMilitary MedicinePublic Health and SafetyPulmonary HealthSexual and Family HealthAmateur RadioAntiquesBreyer HorsesDie-cast ToysDollsKaraokeMilitariaMovie and TV MemorabiliaOutdoor ActivitiesRockhounding and Mineral CollectingSports MemorabiliaTrading CardsChina Dishes and GlasswareCleaningFurnitureHome AppliancesHousehold HintsLandscapingMovingParty PlanningPersonal Safety and SecurityPest ControlPostage and ShippingRentingSwimming PoolsWater Fountains and PondsHumorous LanguagesPredictionsWord Play Puns and OxymoronsBankruptcy LawBusiness LawChildren and the LawCivil RightsCourt ProcedureDrugs and the LawHuman RightsInternational High CourtsLaw SchoolLaws and RegulationsLawyersUS ConstitutionUS Supreme CourtHistory of WritingLearning a New LanguageSlogans and MottosCheatingMarriageStalkingAgnosticismAlternative ReligionsComparative DenominationsComparative ReligionsEastern ReligionsProphetsQuakersRegional ReligionsZoroastrianismScience ExperimentsShoppingBlack FridayCar BuyingCouponsDuty and CustomsFurnitureGamesGift GivingQVC ChannelStore HoursTobacco and Tobacco ProductsSportsAthletes' Personal LivesAthletic Coaches and ManagersBadmintonCricketCurlingEquestrian SportsFantasy SportsFishingFootball - CanadianKayakingMiscellaneous SportsMountain and Rock ClimbingRacquetballSkiingSnorkelingSnowmobilingSoftballSpecial OlympicsSports RivalriesSports Video GamesSurfingSwimmingTable TennisTarget ShootingVolleyballWater PoloWater SkiingWeightliftingElectrical WiringElectronicsInternetRoboticsAir TravelCar RentalsCruises and Ocean LinersDistances and Travel TimesHotels and LodgingLuggageNational Parks Reserves and MonumentsSpecialty TravelTollsTrain TravelTravel Insurance I am sorry if this list has a few errors or duplicates, I did my best to provide a complete list.
