Admin - Categories and SubCategories

Hey guys,

[Sorry this is a day late; I completely forgot to do my weekly educational post yesterday.]

This week I want to talk about one of the topics that tends to confuse people the most: how we sort stories into categories and subcategories. With many awards programs stories are nominated specifically for some grouping - Best Vignette, Best Slash, Best Ft. Aragorn, whatever. The person nominating the story nominates it for one of these categories, and then the nominated stories receive votes and are ranked within those categories.

That's not quite how it works with the MEFAs. Collapse )
