This category came up in the Who's the Expert game recently. Every single question was about US elections, as has been the case every other time the category came up that I could remember.

I know the questions are heavily US-based because we have so many American contributors, so I thought I'd write a few quizzes about campaigns and elections in other countries to expand the question pool, since it's a topic I like.

However, when I looked for the place to put new quizzes, I found that "campaigns and elections" is a subcategory of US Government. So it's not possible to write questions for this category except for US elections.

Ideally I'd like there to be a global "campaigns and elections" category but I assume moving the topic out from under US Government is too hard. If that's the case, could the category at least be renamed "US campaigns and elections" so that we know what to expect when it comes up?

Thanks.

Lorance79 you have already posted this (word for word, or very nearly) in the 'questions and answers' section, and have been given various replies. I'm not sure why you have raised it again in this section.

This isn't the forum for it anyway so it is being moved.

@rossian

I've been having problems with the forum login for the last couple of weeks, so I haven't been able to see the boards properly. I couldn't see my earlier question on the board I posted it, so I assumed it hadn't submitted correctly. That's why I raised it again. Now that I know it exists elsewhere I'll go hunt it down.

If someone can close this thread that would be grand.
