New Netherland Descendant Sticker not meant to be used?

If I add the New Netherland Descendant Sticker to my page, it adds a red-link and empty category, and my page is the only one listed on the 'pages using this template page' (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:Whatlinkshere/Template:New_Netherland_Descendant_Sticker). Is this sticker not meant to be used? If so, can it be removed from the sticker list?

Apparently the category that the template adds hasn't been connected to the hierarchy.

Hopefully a project member will see your post and have the problem fixed soon!
Thanks!

I decided I wanted as many stickers as possible...now to work on some genealogy so I can add the Mayflower sticker :).

Where did you find the sticker you used? I'm the project leader for New Netherland, and I am not aware that we had adopted the sticker you describe.

I figured it out. I created that sticker as a draft. I didnt know it would be visible, but apparently an invisible element of the parent template put it in Category:Stickers.

The sticker is not designed to add profiles to a category.
Well yeah different than the one I have on some of my managed profiles
