Should Ask.com add another category to the "Report as" button?

I think they should add "Wrong Category".

I was searching in the "Art, Design, & Photography" category just now and there are three questions that were clearly not listed in the correct category: one about a girls period, one "Why is Justin Bieber so famous?", and one "Who's going to watch to walking dead tomorrow?"

These are clearly not in their respective categories and were NOT the type of question I was looking to answer which is why I chose to search "Art, Design, & Photography".

Now I realize that sometimes a mistake can be made when posting, but if they had "Wrong Category" as an option, it could at least be noted, then the question could be filtered to the correct category.

You know, that sounds like a good idea.

LOL! So you think it would be a good idea?
Report as
Yeah... I don't like the idea going to the music category and finding Justin Bieber there...
Report as

Actually, that's a really good idea. I see that sort of thing all the time, and quite frankly, it's getting annoying.

It is annoying, people are just too lazy to choose a category.
Report as
Very annoying. I do not know if the person posting is purposely not listing it properly or if there is a glitch, but if we can notify Ask.com, then it can be re-filtered.

That's a good idea. Propose it to them in the "feedback" link.

Ynp this sort of thing falls under the Community Guidelines category and you can report it that way. Honestly it doesn't really matter what category you choose however as ALL reported content goes to the Mods to be reviewed, the categories just help us when something is in a grey area to decide what the issue is

I have reported this on the two questions I listed in my post, yet they are still in the Art, Design, & Photography category. This happens a lot and I always report it. Nothing gets changed to the proper category hence the reason for posting this question. But thank you for responding.
Report as
sorry about that sometimes when it is busy someone might not think to check the category, so in that sense yes this would be a good idea, We try to change them if they are wrong as they come in but again when it gets busy things slip through. :( You can go to the feedback forum (link at the bottom of the page) and request this as well, if enough people do they might do it. :)
Report as
I have done that as well. Thank you.

I think it would be good, but not too necessary. funny question topics that does seem too be the top things people comment on now.

speaking of commenting I can't comment either
because Im definitely a spammer(sarcasm)
