The Alienist Wiki:Category Guide offers an insight to the preferred categorization on The Alienist Wiki.

What's a Wiki Category?Edit

A category is a group of pages with a similar theme, such as characters, books, or places. You can add a category link to any page, and it will automatically be listed on a category page with other similarly linked pages. Categories help organize the community and make it easier for readers to find related content. Ideally, every wiki page should be in at least one category. A category page itself can be in another category. So, for example, a wiki might have a category called "Characters" with sub-categories for "Minor characters", "Dead characters", and "Main characters".

At the bottom of each page, there is a set of 'Related Pages' images to help guide visitors from one page to another; these are chosen based on category tags on each page. The more specific the category tags are, the better these suggestions will be.

How to add categoriesEdit

There are two types of ways to add categories to an article.

  1. From the page: Go to the bottom of the article and click on the "Add category" box. Type in the correct name and hit "enter," then select "Save."
  2. While editing: Go to the top of the article and click on the "Edit" button. On the edit screen, on the right-hand side, you'll see "Categories." Type in the correct name and hit "enter," then select "Publish."
