How can I get to the correct "basket" for {{Unsourced|South Africa}} before the source-a-thon starts on Saturday ...?: (WARNING: THIS IS A MISNAMED CATEGORY AND SHOULD NOT BE USED.)

See my feed here and the instructions to my team members here.

?!??! Isnt it just that people add the wrong arguments to the template?!?!
Thanks Magnus! Indeed once again just a mere slip of the hand. Though it would be handy if the template would light up red then in the bio, as usual when one adds an incorrect template.

Its red when the category doesn't exist but as it exist it will not be red


  1. ask Chris for a function to delete Category so they become red instead looks like no problem...
  2. maybe faster to ask AleŇ° for an database error when profiles links misnamed or non existing categories

Correct category

Start at Unsourced and work your way in. OR

Click on the category on a profile that has the category already and it takes you to the full category.

Thanks Anne, I know where it is. Have been adding profiles to it the whole day.

The issue was that I made a typo and got to a category with more profiles in ... read the message: (WARNING: THIS IS A MISNAMED CATEGORY AND SHOULD NOT BE USED.)

And yet there were 4 profiles in that category. As Magnus explained - this template however does not show up red though, so no warnings ...
