"885 Using Top Level category" meaning?

I adopted a profile of an ancestor of mine, [[Starling-222]], and when I checked my Suggestions Report I got the following message, "885 Using Top Level category."  Unfortunately, I don't know what that means.  It seems to have something to do with his American Revolution sticker.  Can anyone tell me what the system is suggesting that I do?

You need to update the parameters for the 1776 sticker:

Template:1776_Sticker

Also, be sure to add the word Sticker to the template.

Post back if you still need help.

This is the initial G2G announcing new 1776 Sticker to replace 1776

If the existing 1776 'sticker' did not have 'unit' in it, it is getting this Suggestion. Be careful because it is much more restrictive than it was previously.

Many had that suggestion this week. The way your current sticker is formatted, it is putting your profile into the category, "American Revolution." They no longer want profiles to go into that category (because it is "top level.") So, you will have to rework the sticker to get your person into the correct sub-category. See if these pages help...
