Do We Need More Categories?

Upon writing my last post, I realized there are no categories for crime, horror, or older news.. Do you think it would be beneficial to the site to add these categories? I don't think "breaking news" or "random" are really the right categories to put a post about serial killers, and this is one of my main subjects of interest. These could also be pretty popular subjects that people search for. Do you agree with this, or are you pretty happy with the categories we currently have? I do realize there are surplus titles to choose from, but I would like to see these ones added. Pretty please MaeLou emoticon :smile:

These categories would be a good addition.

I think that a crime category would be nice. I used to write a lot about crime stories, but I haven't written much about that topic here.

I'd like to see science fiction separated from the paranormal as categories - history would be a good category too

I think instead of Breaking News, we could just change it to "News." I don't think a new story, whether it be crime or whatever should have its own category with as tiny as we are. We have combined some categories because of how little action each category was getting. Once we get bigger and have a major need for other categories, we'd like to add them.

I feel like even if an article doesn't exactly fit into a category, that's what hashtags are for. They allow for more specific categorization and people can find things a little easier.

I wanted a category for creative writing where flash fiction, poems and maybe short stories can be published. Also education would be a nice addition.

I tend to write mainly about personal things and there is a category for that and occasionally health/fitness so far I have not come across a post that I could not slot into a category but that may change in the future as I have not written much here yet

That sounds like a good idea.. I could put it into the news category then emoticon :smile:

I'm really happy with all we already have here on PP. I think the existent categories cover all our interests in matter of writing.

When it gets bigger, we can definitely separate SciFi and Paranormal again.

I also sent in a request for a category for house things like cleaning, decorating and such. Putting them in design just seems wrong. :)
