TopicsIt is often completely arbitrary why we have one category and not another.

For the most part, we try to let new sections grow naturally. We've been finding that it's better to divide up general categories that have become too large than to set up relatively empty categories from the start.

That said, if you would like to actively participate in a category and could help us get it started, e-mail us at Wiki s @ s.com.

When on the category home page (not the category topic page) you should see all the answered questions. To get to the unanswered questions in the category there is a link to unanswered questions above the name of the category. If you are not seeing a list of questions you probably are looking at the topic page instead of the category homepage and will need to use the browse categories page to get to the category homepage instead.

"WikiAnswers Local" is a placeholder category for questions about certain countries. No new questions should be added to the main "WikiAnswers Local" category.

If you go to a category homepage there is a link to Unanswered questions above the category title in the top left. If you do not see this you may be viewing a category topic page instead of the category homepage. The easiest way to get to a category homepage is by clicking on "browse categories" in the left-hand toolbar and then searching for the category.

You can't do it yourself, but there are links all over the site to contact the administrator and ask for a specific category.

There is no set number of questions, but there should be approximately 50. Beyond this the main requirement is that there be a participant who is enthusiastic about participating in the topic area, and ideally, supervising it.(See the Related link for the form to request a new category.)

In WikiAnswers there is a category called 'Quakers' it is a sub category of 'Religion and Spirituality'.

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.

Yes, there have been very many incidents in the past in which someone has posted a question to WikiAnswers that refers to an unspecified topic or category.

We do have the category Questions About WikiAnswers and a category Questions about Answers.com Questions get put in misc or uncategorized when a user does not choose a category.

This question is in the WikiAnswers category for example sentences.

There are only 2. 1. Make sure the category you'd like to suggest does not already exist. 2. We ask that you do a search of all WikiAnswers questions pertaining to the topic of the category you'd like to suggest. If more then 100 results come forth that relate to that topic then it's worth making a category for. How to: Select the "Search" option at the top-right of any page on WikiAnswers, search in "Questions" and type in the category you'd like to suggest. Let's say the category you'd like to suggest is Pizza, type "Pizza" in the search bar and if 100+ results come up, it's a category worth suggesting. After that, you may contact a Community Assistant and they will consider that category for creation.
