Categories help to group wiki pages which are related to each other so it's easier to find them and navigate through the wiki. Together with Templates this also makes maintaining and updating wiki content easier.
This wiki uses as few categories as possible but without making categories include too many pages. An example: the different Scorpion Stingers (Scorpion Stinger, Angry Scorpion Stinger, Red Scorpion Stinger, Black Scorpion Stinger) are grouped as Category:Generic Item. They could also be grouped as "Category:Scorpion Stinger" but with this practice the wiki will end up having too many categories. Also just marking them as "Category:Item" would spam this category with far too many pages.
Please do NOT add new categories to this wiki unless you discussed it with the team. In the past the wiki was flooded with unused or obsolete categories and thousands (!) of pages were rearranged to build a decent wiki structure. But of course feel free to suggest new categories or changes on old ones, either in the Talk page or in our general wiki discussion forum thread.
You can add a page to a category by adding this at the bottom of the page:
So for example "[[Category:Player information]]".
Note: a lot of Templates automatically add a category to a page when they are used in one. For example when using Template:Useable Item in a page it will automatically add Category:Useable Item to it, so you should avoid adding that category a second time. Always check the templates you use, they are usually well documented.
Adding a link to a category works different. Since "[[Category:Category name]]" adds a page to a category without linking to it you need to add a ":" at the start, like this:
So for example "[[:Category:Player information]]" becomes "Category:Player information".
A list of all all categories can be found here: Special:Categories.
However, below listed are again all categories but also with explanation about what they are used for.
