In the "World" category there is a subcategory titled "Military Matters." A quiz I wrote titled "Enigma and Bletchley Park Codebreakers" is (correctly) in the sub-sub-category "Espionage & Codebreaking," but that is in "Global Trivia." Please consider moving that entire sub-sub-category from "Global Trivia" to "Military Matters."

But espionage and codebreaking isn't entirely a military matter. For example, Robert Hansen (sp?) was a spy who conducted espionage on behalf of the Russians, but it wasn't connected to military.

Categorisation is never simple, or clear cut. That sub-cat has a bit of anything and everything in there.

Let's leave the quizzes where they are, and try this .. there's now a virtual link inside Military Matters to the Espionage & Codebreaking sub-category.

A virtual link sounds like a good compromise. Thanks for the action, George,

I just wondered, tongue in cheek of course, whether the location of this subject should be secret
