Unfortunately, you cannot directly change the name of a category. However, you can use tools such as this one to instantly replace a category with another. If you can't get that installed, you can always do it manually.

Okay thank you.
So I guess it's impossible to erase the category as well?
That's correct. Only a small number of lifestyle communities (such as wikis for polical advocacy that really don't fit the fandom.com domain) will be moved to wikia.org. All other wikis will be moved to fandom.com .

Lol, thank you for teaching us this new word, polilical.
I'm extremely concerned about recent actions taken to take down wikis that exist to compile scenes considered fetish, ecchi and otherwise 'inappropriate' by some unknown false morality. Several wikis have either been shut down or suddenly told, without adequate chance for discussion, that they will be shut down. This has not been posted formally on any part of the community site, and the only explanations received have been questionable claims of going 'family friendly'. I am using that terms in quotes because any traditional application would include media that contain graphic violence or sex, which applies to featured wikis such as Psycho-Pass.
If Fandom is insistent on pursuing this course of action (which is as of right now pointlessly excluding people who were able to share passions on a shared resource) I would please ask that you at least better communicate why this is happening and post formal information about these new policies on the community wiki.
I appear unable to currently access my email so thought I would reply here. First I must commend the direction Fandom has decided to take, namely for staff to decide to get involved more with communities and be more accessible and helpful. Being staff since you are a part of literally every last wiki and a part of all communities, I can think of no one better than yourself to post a first Discussions post for the Yaoi wiki.
The message in mind was the very useful one containing links on what one is able to do in Discussions and further information on Fandom that was sent to various wikis, I hope the Yaoi wiki may have the same as what was afforded to the others. You a staff member posting this is important to show that smaller wikis are still kept in mind, as well as being a good example to people who come to the site to see staff are available if they require help. Not everyone knows there even are staff to contact if technical issues do arise for example.
With a LOT of wikis I would not expect you or other staff to contribute to article pages, neither would I become accustomed to asking on a whim for them to carry out something like this. Though the new direction does suggest you would be supporting wikis more at any rate so though I am likely the only one, even if every wiki requested this how fantastic is it that community involvement, supporting contributors and Discussions can all be done with a single copied and pasted first Discussions post. I however only ask this one off first Discussion post for the Yaoi wiki to set a good tone for the site.
Creating a better community experience, supporting contributors, I know I have come to the right person. It is always so nice to help others who come to you for help, encouraging a good supportive community spirit and having a best start for Discussions, a feature Fandom seems very keen to implement.
The Yaoi wiki is linked and it’s first ever Discussions post, Discussions that Fandom is keen to push, is all yours to score, thank you.
What are the specific obstacles to adding the first post for the Yaoi wiki? Not quite understanding why Fandom wants to add Discussions to all the wikis, has changed direction to be more helpful and more involved in communities… yet there is a heavy reluctance to do this for the Yaoi wiki.
There isn't a specific obstacle. We just generally try to be fair and give all wikis the same level of support. Some receive an automated staff ice breaker post when they're migrated to Discussions via a script. When a wiki enableds Discussions without that script, there is no automatic staff post.
In those cases, the communities themselves have requested Discussions, and there is someone around (an active admin like you) who can post an ice breaker, with all the links and information they consider most helpful for users of that community. We don't post welcome messages in those Discussions because we don't need to - you can! A welcome from someone who's actually personally connected to that community will always be better and more helpful than a generic staff post.

That is brilliant, then would you mind adding the first Discussion post?
As I say I've already posted the first ones for other wikis so would like to change it for the Yaoi wiki, more so since as with Maiden Rose newcomers are not familiar with Fandom as a whole at all.
Working on a case by case basis, the welcome from staff is better for this wiki, then with me that’s at least two different people having posted and of course the aforementioned helpful links for others to learn from.
Honestly its surreal, Mira, Fandom went through a significant upheaval emerging with a new direction for staff to be more involved with communities and be more helpful. What is with this grating hesitation to carry out that goal? How is typing out such a long message like yours better than copying and pasting your own welcome thing to help both the Yaoi wiki and Discussions XD
I mean with a single copy and paste you can state you have helped advance Discussions and demonstrated first hand that you are creating a better community experience and supporting them by helping me, the only time I'm requesting it.
It’s not a case of I'm not asking for much, I'm asking for nothing rather than providing a chance to help you carry out Fandoms grand new direction, seriously what gives?
Hi, an admin can issue a block whenever they wishes to do so. You can contact the admin over here at Community Central if you believe your block is an error; otherwise, wait out your block or contribute to a different wiki.
Do you know why CHIDIEStar got their account disabled? I don't need specifics however he made a new account claiming that it was an accident and, like a fish that just got released from a fish hook, I asked how it happened and they said they'd give evidence of what happened and then started talking about some drama that happened like a month ago that they admitted had nothing to do with the topic so I kinda lost my temper with them (long story short, this user and I have gotten into arguments over their own overdramatic outbursts a lot in the past) then they admitted that they closed their account because they were I guess still mad about the admins in the screenshot warning them to stop with their attitude.
