Was I wrong to set up a separate One Place Study for Pittsylvania County, Virginia

I set up the One Place Study for Pittsylvania County, Virginia, and since people are now changing that category to {{Category: Pittsylvania County, Virginia}} was it wrong to do a one place study on the  whole county?

All I see is "Category: Pittsylvania One Place Study" which should probably be deleted as a category.

The correct way to set up a One Place Study is outlined here.

The proper name for your one place study would be "Pittsylvania County, Virginia One Place Study."

Winner winner, chicken dinner!

Also, if you added text like "This category was set up as part of the Pittsylvania One Place Study to group ______" to the new category page, then the intent would be clear. People in categorization (me) can't read minds (even though I'm a mom!) and understand the use of the category. It looked like a wrongly named place name to me and I renamed it.

Deb's right though, OPS has specific instructions.

You can see all the Virginia counties listed here:

I set up the One Place Study quite some time ago before there were One Place Study group rules.  I knew, however, there was Virginia had a Pittssylvania County listed in it with no lone listed in it.  Obviously, if Pittsylvania shouldn't be a OPS group then everything listed as such needs to be changed.
