Empty Category!
Jan 25th, 2008, 7:08am
 
does everyone realise that there is still a category with NO cards in it? cry
 
I would like to make a card for this occasion but I don't know what the celebration is about! Huh
 
Can anyone tell me what is celebrated at "Dia de la Raza"?

I think it's the South American equivalent of Columbus Day - sometime in October.  I'm not sure how they celebrate or anything, so I would be at a loss as to what kind of card to make.

Hi Wendy!  I am sorry but I don't know what that holiday means.  I wanted to give you a tip that I use frequently when I am not sure about something.  I use google LOL, and I'll tell you what, it works for me!  Just copy and paste the word into google and search and it brings up all kinds of information about your search terms.   Cool

Here's a little about the holiday.
 
In Mexico, October 12th is a national holiday known as Día de la Raza or Day of the Race. This date is honored in other countries as Columbus Day and under other names; but the event it commemorates and the way in which it is observed have become quite controversial.

Lots of categories with 0 cards.  I think Corrie calls these "orphan" categories  cry
 
We have just updated our Card Categories list to highlight two things for you:
1. categories with 0 cards - in orange
2. categories you have cards in - in yellow
 
Take a peek:

Find some "orphans" that interest you and create away!
 
Please note the highlight colors do not print out at this time, so for now it's a look & see.  The category list is getting quite long which is good but doesn't print in a manageable format, we've noticed and it's on the list  Smiley

That's very helpful Mindy! Now it will be easy to find those poor little orphan categories and do something about them.  Smiley

Thanks so much for the info Austin.  
This was a difficult subject to find anything on.
 
Thanks Mindy this is so helpful.  I'm working on a yoga card now, and am going to sort out those other sports and categories just as soon as I can.
 
After all that's how I got my first sale; by adding to a light category!

Thanks Cara that's also very useful.  I'm a Yahoo person myself.  Obviously not so full of info as Google.
I'm still not sure if I will make one of these.
But I've been working on the sports categories lately
I've got a golf, bowling, skateboarder, snowboarder and yoga card approved so far
