Category talk:Naval Bases

I seem to have created something bizarre.

Naval Bases shows as red, I click on it, category does not exist, so I create a category. I then find that I now have a category which has a sub-category of the same name.

Strange!

Where did I go wrong?

You went wrong by creating a pointless and unnecessary category? Categories are ideally created to be expanded upon. There's no point in having a category that's not going anywhere. Places and Postings is sufficient for this specific category you had in mind.

As things stand at the moment, there's way too many categories - and a few notable absentees that could do with creating.

Nope, there were already 6 ships in this non-existent category, that's why I tried to create it.

T_T

Same thing happened when I tried to categorise, "Cadet Forces."

I haven't figured it out yet, either.

BF, please see category Awards and Decorations. Exactly the same problem there, 22 members, but the category doesn't exist. We're not just making categories up for fun. T_T

Agreed. There's some odd stuff going on. I've categorised stuff that didn't have an appropriate cat and it in turn has duplicated the new categories! I'm off down the pub!
