I made a mistake and added USA to the end of my category, instead of just having the city and state.  Could someone correct that for me.  I don't have permission.  Thank you so much.

James,

Actually you do have permission.  Or more properly no permission is needed.  It is not possible to change category names.  So the only method is to create a new category.

The old category will still exist so you need to add a template in showing the correct name.

This is the template

{{Misnamed Category|correct category name}}

So just go ahead and do it over - create a new category as needed and when you have it add the template to the old one and you are done.

There is lots more information in the Categorization Project.
