    Category tips and where to put them

    Investment

    • only to be put on pages that really needs it (i.e. pages with no infobox, incomplete details, no descriptions, etc.)
    • Not to be put on short but complete pages

    Cleanup

    • Only to be put on pages that really needs fixing (i.e. messy pages, wikicopied information, too many bias, too many unnecessary information, etc.)

    Short-Lived

    • Only to be put on countryballs that lasted 3 years or less
    • Countryballs that lasted 4 years or more are no longer considered short lived so the category Historical Countryballs suffices

    Ancient Countryballs

    • Only to be put on countryballs that lasted 1 BC and earlier
    • Countryballs that lasted starting from 1 AD and beyond are no longer considered ancient so the category Historical Countryballs suffices.

    Color categories

    • Add only 1 category type on a page
    • Add the correct color type
    • For example on Franceball, add only the category Red Blue White and not Red, Blue, Blue Red White, White Blue Red.


    Others

    • DO NOT add misspelled categories
    • DO NOT add categories that will only be on one page
    • DO NOT add gibberish categories
    • DO NOT add small lettered categories
    • DO NOT add random categories to pages
    • DO NOT add deleted categories
    • DO NOT add new categories (unless consulted with a wiki staff)
