I just thought I'd share what happened on my profile page...there's a topic called "Spitting" there, under which my two spitting Hubs are listed. I just think it's kind of funny, because I don't think "Spitting" is any kind of Hub topic or category, and it's no group that I created.
So that brings up an interesting point...there are group categories that we can assign to our own Hubs, and then there are the new categories that we can choose from...and then there are topics, designated by HP, to which our Hubs are assigned without any input from us.
Does anyone here find this categorisation system a little confusing? I would be happy for some clarification.
Here's how it looks to me...I can put my own Hubs into groups that I define; then HP does something to put my Hubs into their topics; then I can categorize my Hubs according to the new category feature (which is an awesome thing...a giant step in searching the content of HP). With all of this data relationship thinking, how does it all play out?
Excellent question, and something that I have been wondering for a while, glad I wasn't the only one!
I'm thinking that maybe the profile page categories make themseles up...for example on C.C. Riter's profile page, there is a category entitled "Tolden" which I have never heard until here, in his "Tolden Goad" series!
Off topic, but amusing to me...this is post #123 for me!!! *lqtms*

I've searched the topic tree ( http://hubpages.com/topics/tree# ), but can't find a category for a celebrity make-up tutorial. Would it be possible to create one? It should be a sub-category of Fashion and...

I'm new, so I have what may be a dumb question. I've noticed that some people have their hubs organized into general topic areas on their profile page. How do I go about doing that?

Is there a way to suggest new sub-categories for hubs? I write a lot of articles for teachers to help them integrate technology in the classroom, but I can't ever find a category that directly relates to that other than...

This is a problem since the forums get to heated up or are very in apropriate. I wrote a hub about my grandparents and their wonderful relationship in response to a hubmob challenge so it was automatically catagorized....

What's the best way to pick the topic category for your hub?Is your hub exposed to more potential readers if you pick the general category, or is it better if you get more specific picking the...
