Additional Categories for Article Websites

Have you started an Article Website and are trying even pleading with authors to post their articles there?

Do not feel bad about your failures as an Article Website Webmaster.

For instance How about a; "Miscellaneous" category, kind of like a holding tank for all those articles which do not fit and all those authors who write alternative crap, or lets be nice alternative wisdom articles. Even I myself sometimes feel when I write an article which is an original idea, that it does not belong in a given category, often an opinion about the human endeavor or because I am merely throwing out a crazy idea, which might not even be fully feasible, thus science and education is really way out there? Maybe a “Sci Fi” category, after all there are lots of weirdoes serching UFO subjects and Conspiracy theories. Other sites do not want these nuts writing articles as it gives their site a tainted look and besides they are doing a disservice to science? A miscellaneous category would prove to be a most interesting category and would get a lot of traffic or you could develop a: "Innovations and Concepts" category, for Futurists and thinkers to get their ideas out.
