2 part question:

2.Want to create category:  Long One-Name Study. Would like straightforward directions. (The more I read helps, the more confused I get.)

Less is more!

  1. Categories:
    • You can remove Occupations by Name. That is a placeholder category that is not intended to be placed on profiles (see the category warning for more information).
    • For notables, and associated categories, you should check out the Notables Project for assistance and other additional requirements that may be needed.
  2. Name Studies:
    • It doesn't look as if a Long Name Study currently exists yet.
    • In order to make the best use of categories for the Name Studies, I would suggest joining the One Name Studies Project.
    • The general category would be [[Category:Long Name Study]] (this will be linked to [[Category: One Name Studies]], and if further research or categorization is warranted, you could also add [[Category: United States, Long Name Study]], linked to [[Category: United States Name Studies]] and [[Category: Long Name Study]].

Found a Profile with [[Category:Long Name_Study]] on profile it was Red so I added the Category to the [[Category:One Name Studies]] so it should be set
However, this has now put the profile onto a category page for the Long Name Study - but there is no Long Name Study.

You also put him in a Notables category by just adding [[Category: Notbales]]. I believe the preferred way to do this is like this, {{Notables}}. I went ahead and did that on this profile so you could see that the category remains but you also get the small icon on the profile.

If the profile is not managed by the Notables Project, then you should use the sticker: {{Notables Sticker}} (which I think gives him a category as well)
Good to know.  I will correct the entry I made and a few others.
