Quote from: "The Starchild"
"Enties" and "People:" are listed as categories because there is some article somewhere that claims to be in those categories.  

I removed them by finding the articles that had the typos.  Lucy Lane had a line that read [[Category:Enties]] and another article had [[Category:People:]].  Once these were both corrected, the categories disappeared.


Im a terrible two fingered typist - what can I say? :roll:  Cheesy

I was musing over this as I was writing Mongul's entry. A great number of people and villains that Superman meets are extraterrestrial in origin. I suppose it's natural, since Big Blue himself is an alien. Maybe it might be good to have an "Aliens" category. This is a cue from The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe.

What d'you guys think?

If we have too many categories then it becomes useless. Since nearly everyone is an Alien, it's not really needed.

I think having an "Aliens" category is too Earth-centric a point of view.

How do you delete Subcategories?

Man the help section is useless. It only tells you how to add but not how to delete anything.

Just remove all references to it and it should go away.  If not, let me know exactly which categories and/or subcategories need to be cleaned out and I'll look around.

Maybe the lesson here is to not go creating new categories at the drop of a hat?  Smiley
