Okay. Everything's been pretty good here, aside from a couple Wikia Contributors that had to be blocked because they deleted all information from a page section by section. That implies deliberateness to me.
Hey there, mind if I bother you for a moment to ask if you know how to remove category tags from wiki pages? I can't seem to find a way to do it. (And don't want to look through the trainwreck that is Wikia documentation)
I do know that category tags are embedded as part of articles in Wikipedia proper, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

Thanks got it. For some reason it didn't show up anywhere on the page (Source), but I could get to it from the Visual Editor. And for some reason "__FORCETOS__" magically popped up in the source code afterwards.
I may not be an admin, but I would just like to suggest for you to not delete red links that people add. (Or exist otherwise for other reasons). Those links are there for a reason. (Such as when I added links in anticipation of the Mutation page I was going to create, which has now, incidentally, been created)
By the way, is there some sort of a gathering for the community, where we can discuss pages and edits, and general direction of the wiki? Haven't looked around yet, probably there just gotta find it.
I was wondering if I could make a page on the "unknown" disease type that will be coming out in the future. It would be something like "this is a yet to be announced plague type that will be added to plague inc sometime in the future. In the special plagues catagory it is listed as 'Unknown: coming in a future mutation'" or something along those lines. Then there could be a section on theories about what this plague type could be. Anyways, I just wanted an admin's opinion before I made it, as I don't want it being seen as useless and deleted.
Well, I suppose if someone fairly new to the game wondered what the "unknown" disease was all about, it might help to fill them in, especially if a hint ever was dropped about what the disease would be. It would be like bringing the blog posts speculating about it more into the mainstream area of the wiki so that they were more easily accessable.
Okay, maybe you're right there, although I was mainly talking about in the comments, not the article itself. But still, shouldn't we have an article on every aspect of plague inc? It feels to me that if we don't have any information on it at all, then there is sort of a hole in the wiki. I suppose that instead we could just add a section on it on the "special plagues" page, instead, if that would be better.
It depends on what the body of the article would contain. I think if it were to be made, it should just fill in on what the disease type means and how it is reserved for future special plagues like the Simian Flu, Neurax Worm, and Necroa Virus once were. I'd prefer if any speculation existed, it would remain in the comments of the article rather than in the article itself.
Okay, I've created a rough page , hopefully it's all right. The problem is, I'm having a bit of trouble with the links, so I'm not sure the one I put in will work. If not, type in "Unknown Plague" in the search bar and it should come up.
Okay, thanks. By the way, this is completely off topic, but when people say "country X has seven research facilities," they mean that the country has seven of those blue cure research bottles, correct?
