Any idea why when I go to edit this page, I get a nearly blank screen with Categories Fan Works across the top? I'd like to add the QL con, "Leap Back." Mrs. Potato Head 18:12, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

You can't edit category indexes. They are assembled automatically from all pages that have the category tag. You need to make an article and add the category to it, then it will be sorted here.--Ratcreature 18:16, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
Gotcha. Thanks Mrs. Potato Head 18:53, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Just noticed we don't have a standard disambiguation for convention pages. (con), (convention), (Fandom convention), etc. I'd like to see (convention) as the standard disambig, with fandom name added in only if there's more than one con by that name. y/n?--æþel 05:07, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Adding subcategories for classification of Cons in Fancon and Procons?

After creating the article for Fan run I noticed that most of the articles featuring conventions do not use a consistent labeling in type if a convention is fan run (ergo a Fancon (in my definition: not for profit)) or a Procon (=for profit). Sometimes it's labeled as fancon or procon, sometime it's "fan run" with guests", sometime it's "non-profit" pro con etc. I would like to suggest to have to new subcategories for the Category:Conventions page so that the people can categorize them accordingly. Cons that started as fancon and then become procons could be categorized in both categories. I look forward to you input. WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 12:16, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

sorting of subcategories

The logic for how subcategories are sorted here seems inconsistent. If we don't go with just letting the categories sort under the first letter of the category name, I'd put only the con-related activity subcats (Con Zines, Panels, Meta) under the asterisk and let all the types of conventions sort under the category name.--aethel (talk) 04:33, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

Just read my own note and the sorting on the subcategories was still inconsistent, so I have updated it accordingly.--aethel (talk) 14:33, 15 August 2021 (UTC)
