Creating a new story failed and the error message didn't help

Hello there!


When I tried to create a story, I wondered: Shouldn't there also be sub-genres below fiction, not just below FanFiction? Anyway, I chose Fiction for now to go on, but there, I encountered an error which frankly puzzled me a bit.image.png.434b9079d29f5090a7049733bc2c5f8d.png

When I clicked on "Submit To Moderation", the error message on top showed up. So far, so good. But shouldn't one form field be marked with an explanation what I should change in it? Since that is not the case, everything seems fine, yet, I can't continue.

Can you help me with this? Thanks in advance!

No. That's not the purpose of a category in our system. (Fiction, FanFiction, Poetry, Non-Fiction, World Building, Special Event Fiction, basically).  All other categorization occurs through the deep genre/sub-genre categorizations.

I'm rather confused. The picture you included  tells you to go through each Step. And two different Steps have a showing you there is an issue on that step. 

Just follow the "How Do I Post A Story on GA FAQ"

Ah, sorry, I guess, I didn't create a new story since the new sub-category system 🤦‍♂️

I considered this button a "Proceed" button that would also go through the steps, despite its label indicating, it would directly submit the contents. Stupid me. 😬😅
