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 Education and Science > Teaching. I would love to see an Education Technology/Teaching With Technology category or a something along those lines.
Has anyone successfully suggested and seen a new sub-category added to Hubpages?
The rules are constantly changing, but I think at least 10 people have to write hubs in the same category, in order to make a new category. I also have trouble finding the proper ones for my writing at times.
I can't find what I need as a category when I get to "start a hub." A small list of categories comes up, and they are good most of the time, but sometimes not what I really need. Does anyone know how to look up or get other categories more suitable BEFORE you get the the point where you are ready to post a new hub? I know there's a big list somewhere, (and I am not sure exactly where, I usually just stay logged in) but don't understand how to get the needed title to the "start a hub" page. Thanks to anyone who cares to answer. Best of luck, Jonathan.
You can see the full list here.
As @Jean mentioned, there have to be a minimum number (20) of Hubs in a subtopic before it is listed other than on the full topic page.
If you can't find an appropriate topic there, then let us know what you are looking for and we may create it.
Thanks for the topic tree link. I forgot what it was called.
Well I mentioned a couple of ideas for topics in my initial post. They don't exist right now, but it would be great if they did. "Best Education Websites" is about the closest, but there is not really anything that relates to best practices for integrating technology in the classroom or ideas for how to use specific tools to improve teaching and learning in the classroom. Existing topics in this area are more suited to listicles.
We can send a request to have a sub topic added, but unless it has 20 Hubs, then the subtopic won't be listed anywhere other than the full topic page.
That being the case, it might make sense, for Hub visibility sake, to try to use an existing category.
Does "Teaching --> Lesson Plans" match up with your Hub perhaps?
Maybe something under "Internet and the Web (2,786 Hubs)"?
If you would still like "Best Education Websites" where should it fall in the existing topic structure?
Should it be under Teaching, Computers and Software, or another category?
This is not about the initial topic, but is related, and is about our self-created groups.
I'm wishing there was a way to "assign" a hub to more than one group, as there is sometimes overlap between two topics.

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?

I've been going through some of my old Hubs to update them but one thing I didn't think to check - until today - was which category they were in. What a shock! Several of my older Hubs were in totally inappropriate categories, which may be one reason why they weren't noticed for a...

Hello Everyone, I hope you all had a great week. For me it has been a very good week, my ankle seems to have healed perfectly -it even passed the high heel test- and my arm cast finally came off, just leaving me with a few sessions of re-education before I can start using my hand...

Is it possible to run this as a thread for suggestions for categories missing from the existing category listFor example - any chance of an "Art Business & Marketing" category under Arts and Design?

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 Beauty>Make-Up and Cosmetics>
