Stories of Erastus Centaur

User:Erastus/Summer Job

This is the first story in what became the Professional Animals universe. I wrote one other story (which needs a rewrite before submitting) and a few other authors tried their hands.

A few helpful notes for you. User pages (like Your Own) don't get categorized. Your stories should be placed in a category using a name of your choosing. (ie: add [[Category:Erastus Centaur]] to them). In order to try and be a helpful admin I've fixed up the categorization problems and done this for you, as well as adding Your "Author" Category as a sub-category of Author. If you've got any questions, just ask for help and one of us will respond. ShadowWolf 20:25, 21 July 2007 (EDT)
Actually (and apologies to Erastus for hijacking his user talk page to discuss larger-scale organizational issues :) I'm thinking it seems logical to categorize author's user pages under category:author. That would give readers an easier way to go directly to author's home pages, rather than having to first go to one of their stories and then following a link (assuming the byline is linked). To keep the user pages from mixing with story pages we might recategorize the existing subcategories of author to category:stories by author, but I'm not sure whether that's actually needed just yet.

Template:My stories

Hi, just thought I should drop a note here since I imagine most authors won't be regularly checking Help:Templates for updates. I've finally added a template that I should have created long ago, a tag to put on userpages to facilitate linking to your personal story category; Template:My stories. If you want, just stick this code at the top of your userpage to create a standardized little box with a direct link in it: {{my stories|category=Erastus Centaur|name=Erastus Centaur}}.
