I am an admin at iCarly and Victorious wikis, and we have a problem with category spam and users adding incorrect categories to pages. Can Wikia develop a way to remove categories as easily as they can be added (without opening the edit form)? Possibly something similar to HotCat on Wikipedia? It would make our job of keeping the wikis organized much easier and efficient.

You can always have a bot do it. AWB can do it quite easily if you set the find to the category you want and replace it with nothing. Its not quite what you were asking for but it will work--GodPray  05:50,7/20/2011
