Categories and BadgesEdit

So here's an observation and a question. Badges can be earned for adding articles to Werewolf: The Apocalypse. I've been checking to see when the points come and adding an article to a sub-category of Werewolf: The Apocalypse gives no points toward getting the next badge. It must include a Werewolf: The Apocalypse tag. This means that a contributor can do massive work within the category & get absolutely no benefit from it except that of having added in general to the wiki and there are obviously a limited number of articles that can go into the one category. Why is that and is there a way to fix that? Why are WTA Glossary and other such things not included in the category? Bro David (talk) 00:01, June 25, 2018 (UTC)

Well, I must say this question certainly has shed some light over your actions since you joined the wiki, for now I understand even your excessive micro editions... Anyway, you're right, that's how it works. And no, there's no way how we can fix that. As for the benefits you'll get from continuing to contribute in the articles despite of this fact, is the improvement of the wiki I guess. I'm sure your ego can survive without these badges - just like everyone else has been doing for years. Russel Hammond (talk) 00:40, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
Considering most of my work has been in Changling where there is no badge of any kind, my ego is hardly the major issue. Every display of what changes says what section was changed and so I was trying to change sections at a time. Bro David (talk) 02:41, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
This is admin specific and we as regular users have no control over it (see https://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Achievements). I suggest if you want more badges or a more accurate portrayal of our topics among them, you take the issue to one of them. Sharth (talk) 15:11, June 25, 2018 (UTC)
This is a problem I have seen as well. However it's apparently only the case for WTA. My contributions to subcategories of other game categories do count towards badges.
