Question about disambiguation[change source]

Hi, saw you just created a disambiguation page for Brum. Just consulted Category:Disambiguation pages on EN as I want to learn how to do it. Along with creating or picking categories and merging suggestions, I'm not very good with this, so I would appreciate your guidance. So if I were to add {{Disambiguation}} on top of an article I want to create a disambiguation, it will then create that category? Or do I need to set that up as well? Many thanks. — Infogapp1 (talk) 22:37, 8 August 2020 (UTC)

@Infogapp1: I think we like to keep it simple here with as few categories as possible. This is a question better suited for Auntof6. In terms of the disambig pages themselves, it is usually sufficient to copy them from enwiki with attribution and sometimes a little simplification. IWI (chat) 22:54, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Understood, that's why I'm not creating any categories as (1) I'm not sure how to even create them in the first place (2) I'd rather stick to impving existing articles for now. I only asked because I saw you added a disambig for Brum and I wanted to know how to do it (if it's easy to do, haha). I'll certainly take a look at EN formats where needed. Thanks — Infogapp1 (talk) 22:58, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Infogapp1: I'm not sure whether you are asking about disambiguation or categories. They don't usually mix. Disambiguation pages are not categorized except for the categories added by the disambiguation templates. I'd be glad to help you with creating either disambiguation pages or categories if you can be more specific about what you'd like help with. --Auntof6 (talk) 23:25, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
@Auntof6: Oh no, I was only mentioning I'm not very good with categories and merging. So, if disambiguation is just as complicated, I'd probably stay away from doing any of them for now. Appreciate the offer and I'll certainly reach out in case I need to do it down the line. Thanks to you both. — Infogapp1 (talk) 23:30, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
@Infogapp1: Disambiguation is not complicated. The hardest part is deciding whether the disambiguation page should be at the base name, or if one of the listed items should be at the base name. We can look to enwiki for that. --Auntof6 (talk) 23:33, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
Makes sense. I'll look at EN for examples in case I run into similar cases. Thank you. — Infogapp1 (talk) 23:36, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
