Adding pages to categories

I noticed you've been trying to add some pages to categories. You got the right idea, but use the square brackets, like [[Category:Example]]. Then it should work out nicely. Feel free to join us on Discord for instant help with editing. :) --Ravanel (talk) 22:26, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip! I think I tried all the other brackets but not those yet, now I know why it didn't work :) --Gail-Merilin (talk) 11:54, 18 March 2018 (UTC)
Ha, I see you've gone berserk on fixing categories. Nice! --Ravanel (talk) 20:43, 18 March 2018 (UTC)


You've been promoted to Ninja. Congratulations! --Ravanel (talk) 22:26, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

The mystery of bracket types: another function unveiled

Hey again, I'm back with another tip! When you see {{:Category:something}}, this is (generally) not a screw up, but it is code to make page content appear on other pages. This trick is called transclusion, and it works for both categories and normal pages. So before you change any of those brackets, make sure you understand what it does (use preview), or you might be removing vital information from a page! :) --Ravanel (talk) 20:39, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know! I'll make sure to double check those instead of miscorrecting them, sorry for my own screw up haha :) Gail-Merilin (talk) 20:55, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
Don't worry about screwing up, you're doing great! --Ravanel (talk) 23:04, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
