Master Categories

Pages must be in one of these master categories. This is done automatically if the {{person | born=????}} etc template is added.

  • Admin - for internal organisation of the site, templates etc
  • Award - Awards, but only apply to the key pages for award series
  • Bid - A bid for a convention
  • Bidding - Convention bidding races
  • Club - clubs and writing groups and writing workshops
  • Conrunning - The mechanics of running a convention, famous incidents
  • Convention - Conventions, festivals etc.
  • Fancast - Spoken fan publication
  • Fanfund - Fanfunds
  • Fanhistory - Articles about what fandom is like, including reminiscence.
  • Fanspeak - fannish words and concepts. Some overlap with publishing and conrunning.
  • Group - for closed groups, like filk groups, small teams
  • Locale - A geographical place, typically a city
  • Penname, Nickname - Former as authors, latter as people [mlo: Is this a useful distinction? It's clear enough, but is it useful?] Pennames for pros should be invisible redirects. Nicknames for fans have some interest, but again would better be part of the fan's main page. So I think its clutter and would remove it. I now think they should be redirects to a bolded mention in an person's actual page. JRB
  • Person
  • Publication - A hidden category for all publications above.
  • Publisher - Companies, not people. Both large concerns and small presses
  • Publishing - The mechanics of producing books, fanzines etc, cf conrunning for cons.
  • Show - Fannish musicals, plays, films etc
  • Store - Place to buy things, bricks and mortar or online
  • Venue - Building that holds cons, or a slan shack house.
  • Website - websites
  • Misc - Anything else, as all pages should have a category
  • None - Pages the admins don't want to have a category, generally because we don't want to index them

  • Mundane - Someone outside of the SF community, like a scientist or actor (scientists who are fans do not get the Mundane category also)
