Is there a way to add multiple profiles to a category simultaneously?

Just wondering-

Is there a way to add multiple profiles to the same category simultaneously?

(kind of like bulk privacy changes)

It can be very tedious to add a category to a large number of profiles...

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

There are no ways for mortal profile managers to do this.

I suspect that some of the Bots that have been developed especially in use for military categories could be modified, however this functionality is not available to everyone, and should not be it as they can be very destructive.

If you add the tag categorization to your question members of the categorization project might be able to suggest an approach.

Just cut the Category once then edit, paste and save for each profile and before you know it you'll have 1000 contributions for this month. And that's the way some play the numbers game. Somehow keeping your eyes on the goal makes it a bit less boring. NOTE: check the first few to make sure that you're pasting it correctly or you'll have to redo it. That's not fun!
