Requesting a new Category

Is there a way to request the creation of a new category, analogous to how one would request the creation of a new board back in the old system?

Riffing of a post I saw on METAR, where someone noted that surely there was a crypto board. I actually don’t believe there is a crypto category. It’s enough of an investing topic (emerging segment? trend? craze?) that it might warrant having its own “board” - but I don’t see any way to request that a new “board” be opened.


How about this category –


That’s exactly it - but how would one find that category, or know it existed? Is there a way to search the list of categories, the way we would search for a Board name back on Boards 1.0?


Just use the search box on the top right and it comes up:


If we wanted to create a new category, for example a new Investment Analysis Club, what would be the process to request one?


Sorry for the double post. With the edit, I can’t delete altogether.

TMF1138, that’s helpful - but super counterintuitive. You get that dropdown if you type crypto but don’t hit enter - as in actually submit it for search. If you type crypto and follow it with an enter, you don’t see the category - you see only individual posts, and not the category listing:

So, now I know - but that’s really strange that you can only get the information from the search box if you don’t actually enter the search term.

Ok, the simple alternative is to just go to advanced search:

And then choose categories and tags:

Thanks! And although I’m one foot in the curmudgeon category of disliking change and being sore about losing so many of the old boards, I do appreciate that you guys have been on point helping all of us figure out how the new system works. You all have been super helpful and responsive, and I for one appreciate it greatly.


I simply searched the entire list for something that sounded relevant. If you are in desktop mode, then the center column will show you all the categories –

You can find all the tags here –
