Why is the category offered never the right one?
When I ask a question, here. It comes up with a list of all sorts of random things, seldom anywhere near. Why don't we just get put straight through to part five at the beginning instead of having to press start over?
This is true of Hubs too - often you'll have to dig through to select the proper category and sometimes the subcategories aren't anywhere close to what you are writing about!
Having it jump straight to listing all of the sub-subcategories would be a problem though. There's just too many of them, and digging through those would be (even more) tedious.
It might be better just making clearer categories and proper subcategories, and cutting out the unnecessary or rarely used ones.
Maybe Hubpages will get on that in the future, as it's always constantly improving.
I would have expected it to learn. I tend to use only half a dozen categories and yet it never picks these but some very obscure ones. A challenge for their web team, methinks.
Good question - let's see what response it brings

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?

Is there a way to add some categories or sub categories, because the categories and sub categories already provided are not sufficient and in keeping with the vast range of topics one can write on? Do we have that...

How do you guys select which categories to post under? I find it hard to narrow it down.

Newb question: What would be the best category for an original piece of humorous writing? I was looking through the different topic categories, and I didn't seem to see an obvious choice. Thanks.Joan Hall
