It would be cool to have a "nerdy" category. There are plenty of hubs about geek culture that are placed in various categories. It would be cool to have a nerdy/geeky category to put it in... maybe a meme category as well.
I know etsy has a category called Geekery. Maybe something like that. Just a thought.
Awesome suggestion, melbel! I love to do geek crafts myself, so something pan-nerddom-related is very appealing! I'll put on my Hat of +5 Intelligence and do some thinking about how to implement your ideas. Stay tuned and I'll get back to you about the Topics I end up creating.
Hello again, melbel, I've created a couple categories based on your suggestion. The new Topics are:
-Arts and Design>Crafts & Handiwork>Geek Crafts
-Technology>Internet and the Web>Internet Culture
-Technology>Internet and the Web>Internet Culture>Internet Memes
You should be able to move existing Hubs to those Topics and start new Hubs in them now, but new Topics don't get their own Topic Pages on the site until they have at least 15 featured Hubs in them. The nice thing is that if you help us fill up those Topics, your Hubs will most likely show up on the first page when the 15-Hub threshold is reached. >^. .^<
I'm alerting Christy Kirwan, our venerable Topics Queen. She'll take care of it!
Thanks for the awesometastic suggestion, melbel.
Daaaaamn, skillet! That was way fast. Thanks!
Edit: Oh, I'm seeing two categories under technology:
internet trends and culture

what about a motorcycle and riding gear category instead of just the different motocycles?

Love the new categorization feature, but I have a suggestion for improving it...how about a "go back" or "up one level" button? This way if you choose a category and discover that nothing in that category suits your needs, then you don't have to start all over, just go...

I've noticed that there are some missing categories on HubPages. I'm hoping this is something that can be addressed so as to enable hubs which have transferred to cluster in a more appropriate wayCan I suggest we try and highlight the new categories that we'd like to see added.

How can I propose a new category?I want to propose a category for "History of Mexico."

Can you put all the religious, theology, atheist, etc.. stuff on a separate site, give it their own tab/page or something so the rest of us don't have to be hit in the face with it every time we come to hubpages.

Hi, I can't help thinking that it would be helpful to have the option for hubs to be linked to more than one category if necessary. For example, I wrote a review on a book about the TV show Mad Men. However, I was torn about which category to allocate this hub too. I ended up...
