Categories are an important tool on this wiki. With categories it helps to keep track of pages as far as if they belong to the writing area or the roleplay area. They also help to keep track of our Rating System and to whom the pages belong. When it comes to the rating system however, this will be one of the most important categories to be accurate. If you mark a story as PG-13, but the story clearly should have been Rated R, that mistake could result in deletion of the story and/or further corrective action.

The one category that will be the same for everything on this wiki is User Categories. For instance, anything that I have written, created or roleplayed (with the exception of in forums) will have the category BachLynn23.

Another important category that should go on all pages, whether roleplay or Writing, is the rating categories. You can read more about this here.

Going Over BoardEdit
