Categories[edit source]

The Category attached to an article should not, in general, be the same as the title of the article.

A category is just a way of grouping several articles on the same theme.

In most cases the articles you have written should all just be in the category Polynesia, unless you have a large number of articles on one topic e.g. Hawaii when you could put those articles in the category Hawaii and place this category itself in the category Polynesia (i.e. a sub-category).

To do this simply type [[Category:Polynesia]], including the brackets, as the final line in each of your articles. bromaelor 20:06, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

To this end, I wanted to share with you ...CONTINUE
