Categories group articles under specific subjects, like the category "People" has a list of all personal articles, listing individuals in the Lexington's universe. Any article can be listed under more than one category, for example, a personal article can be listed under "People" and under "Officers" or "NPCs", etc.

You should endeavor to use the already existing categories on the Lexicon to group any articles that you create, since we are trying to keep categories at a manageable amount (let's not go insane, folks!). If you feel you must create a new category, please be aware that one of the administrators might delete the category for the aforementioned reason.

How ToEdit

To add your article to a category, simply put the following at then bottom of your article:


Example: Adding a personal article to the category "People", you would enter the following:

[[Category:People|NAME OF PERSON]]

Note: Keep in mind that articles are listed under the categories in alphabetical order according to the first word of the article name entered. So, when adding a personal articles to a category for example, remember to put the person's last name first (no comma is necessary between last and first name), so that listings can be accurate.

Currently Existing CategoriesEdit

We encourage you to find an appropriate category (or sub-category) from this listing to group your article under. However, keep in mind that an administrator might change that grouping if not appropriate. You may use almost any of the categories, except those that are reserved for administrators only.
