Since the wiki has grown big, the original categories are limited. Here is an open list of suggested categories you should add to your page. If you come up with a new category that you thing we should add to the wiki in order to properly organize pages please feel free to let us know.
These are the categories which give a general idea of where your page should be located.
- Characters: for the characters (duh). It doesn't matter if they are from the show, Original Characters or chesspieces.
- Story: for the stories (obviously).
- World: for the articles that explain the chessgame of the gods' universe. This includes pages about species, history, nations, magic, places and more.
- Meta: for the rules and articles that don't deal directly with the chessverse.
- All: this is a category to help us keep a record of the pages and make sure there are no "lost pages". Since I (Weeeman) have learned how to find lost pages this category is no longer necessary.
These are some suggested categories for any character page:
- Pieces: for the characters that are chesspieces.
- OC: for characters that have been created by a chessverse author.
- Show: for characters from the show, such as Fluttershy and Princess Luna.
- Fanon: for characters that have been created by fans that are not authors of the chessverse, such as Button Mash or Nyx.
- Canon: for characters that have been added to the canon timeline. Deuterocanon also count as canon since they appeared at some point.
- Prequel: for characters that appear in the prequel stories, such as Megan and Faust.
- Noncanon: for characters that are not canon to the other stories, such as Havoc.
- God: for characters that are players of the chessgame, such as Discord and Faust.
- Cancelled: for characters whose stories have been cancelled.
- Deuterocanon: for characters considered deuterocanon, such as Griffin the griffin.

These are some suggested categories for any world page:

Since the meta category is small there's no need to add subcategories. This is an improvised list of categories so if you want to add new ones send a PM to either Weeeman or Thethhron on fimfiction explaining why you think your category should be added.
