I have a suggestion for Terry. Is it possible to create new category in quizzes related to PLANTS. As the category of ANIMALS is present therefore there should be a category of PLANTS too.

Botany IS plants.

features 2004, may I ask you to just check. There are TWO threads asking Terry to start a plant quiz section. You started both threads. I just asked why.

Sue943, I can also say zoology is animals. However, Botany is plants but Botany is a branch of biology and here we can only ask about Biology of plants.

What I am saying is that the category exists under the heading Botany. Place your plant quizzes there.

But i think so that it should be separated from Sci/Tech. Everyone has equal rights and there should also be equal rights between ANIMALS and PLANTS.

We make categories in Funtrivia based on need, not on what one subject 'deserves'. We have many quizzes submitted on Animals, and not as many on plants. If we saw that the Sci-tech category was getting badly out of balance, with many more quizzes, by a wide variety of authors, in Botany than in any other area, we would consider starting up a Plants category. Personally, I can't see it happening. People are just more interested in Animals that they are in Plants.

I think if we create a quiz about plants on any topic then you will put it in Botany either it's related to botany or not. But when you create a PLANTS category you will also create its sub-categories!

Features-
Can you please tell me what quiz, exactly, you cannot create under the current structure and find a home for it? Not only is there the Botany category, as mentioned, but there are quizzes on gardening and garden plants in Hobbies.

I do not generally create subcategories in a category unless there are more than 60 quizzes in the category. The more subcategories we have, the harder it is for people to find quizzes.

The Botany subcategory is already further subcategorized into Angiosperms and Gymnosperms, Forestry and Plant Conservation, General Botany, Mycology,
and Non-Flowering Plants. What further categories, exactly, do you think we need?

Yes, and we also need new categories for the fungi, protists and monera, don't we? Or, if you're feeling old-fashioned, we could instead have a "Minerals" category.
