Some people under "celebrities" have their own categories, like Jack Haley, Hugh Hefner, Dennis Quaid, etc., and only have one quiz in the category - what is the purpose of that? I am just curious.

When there are enough quizzes online to support a subcategory, one is created.

Sometimes quizzes are taken offline, hence the subcategories with only one quiz in it.

Aye. There are a lot of those, then. Thank you!

It's always a pity when something does not get its own category.

If everything had a category, this site would be extremely hard to navigate and keep updated.

Sigh. I was wrong. Satire IS dead.

I was just asking because it seemed to make little sense to give Dustin Hoffman (example) his own category when there is only one quiz on him.

Chances are there was more than one quiz when the category was created. The other quiz(zes) may have been deleted over time, for whatever reasons, and no one has bothered going in and removing the category.
