  • Sighs* This is my first time ever using any wikipedia ish thing.

I heard people sometimes write articles about other people, so I decided to write one about myself.

I've screwed up I'm sure.

Here's the main article. Amaroq Wolf That one is fine, but I made a sub article outlining the magic he uses in RP. Magical System I couldn't get it to link back to the Amaroq Wolf one via the category. Nor could I get the link in the Amaroq Wolf to link to the Magical System without turning red.

I finally figured out that I had to make the page in Amaroq Wolf:Magical System. So I did, but now I can't delete the previous article.

So now the link in the Amaroq Wolf article links to the sub article, but the sub article category doesn't link back still. It just goes to a category page, when I thought that I had already made it in an Amaroq Wolf category simply by specifying it as Amaroq Wolf:Magical System.

So now I've got one article about my character, and two articles about my Magical System, one in the wrong place, and one in the right place, and I'm not sure what to do about it. And the category in the sub article still shows red!!

I'm getting kind of frustrated now, and I'm just going to leave this alone before I wind up screweing this wierd system up anymore than I already have.

First off, subpages are typically indicated with a / (for example, User:Siege/Effective_descs), not a : (a category indicator). Categories are for grouping a number of pages which have something in common (such as Category:Wikifurries, which provides a list of all the WikiFur users who have pages about them in the Main namespace).
That said, I have to agree with the comment on Talk:Amaroq_Wolf:Magical_System about the magical system, that something of that depth which lacks relevance to furriness is more appropriate as a personal page. The summary you already have on the persona page is sufficient. Perhaps the full explanation could be moved to your User page instead.
