For those of you who want to help out by adding categories to discussions, this is where we can help each other!

Thanks for adding this new discussion area, Tim! I'm going to copy and paste my recent messages to JR1, who has been helping add categories, for those who are interested in helping out with this.

Hi JR - Thanks for helping out with the categories! I wanted to mention that, if it's easier for you to add categories on the line under the last category, it can be done that way. I discovered, after I started this a week ago, that it was easier for me to do it that way, because I was copying and pasting the categories, and it was easier to highlight one line (in order to copy one category to the clipboard) than trying to highlight one category that was listed with other categories on the same line. It doesn't matter, though. Whatever's easiest for you. Thanks again!

JR - When I want to see what categories are already set up, I'll right click the word Categories at the bottom of most pages and open in a new window. Then I have to click on 250 to get a list of all of the categories on the same page. Adding Restaurants and Realtors was a great idea. What I do, after clicking on the red category link, is either type (in the empty box that opens up) "& n b s p ;" without the quotes and spaces or [[Category: Individual]] or [Category: LLC]] or [[Category: C Corporation]] or [[Category: S Corporation]] or [[Category: Partnership]] or [[Category: Credits]] or [[Category: Expenses]]...basically, I try to add a main category to the new category. Then the new category will be listed in the main category. I'll enter & n b s p ; if there is no category already set up to link the new category to, or when I'm in a hurry. Thanks again for your help.

For example, in the current inventory discussion: I added a new category called Inventory to the discussion. Then I added the following to the new Inventory category: [[Category: Sole-Proprietorship]] . When you click on Inventory at the bottom of the discussion, it takes you to the Inventory category, but the Sole-Proprietorship category now has a new sub-category called Inventory. This was the most confusing to me when I started adding categories...trying to figure out what went where, and it's still a little confusing at times. So, I try to add specific categories (Inventory, Restaurants, Fishermen, etc) to the discussions and then add main categories to the specific categories. By the way, click "Edit this page" to see how I typed the above category string into this message without it resulting in a link to the Sole-Proprietorship category.

Of course, Tim taught me all of this. He deserves all the credit for adding categories.

I'm new here. I see some users have state categories on their user page (except for Hawaii which is a community?). I'm from Washington State. How do I add that?

John's question, by the way, is addressed in FAQ #18.
