Best Answer
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 @

What are the guidelines for suggesting a new category?

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.
