I activated surname pages but they don't work ! What did I wrong ? Fred Bergman 21:31, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

You have to be more specific than "don't work". Do you mean that pages are not immediately appearing in the category listings? That is normal, because updating the category listings is a "background" job. See Special:Statistics, "Job queue" (more explanation at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Job_queue). The short answer is that when you create a new surname category, it typically shows up as empty, but sometime (hours?) later the expected pages appear in it. Thurstan 22:17, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Okay, I'll wait for appearing, but 10 hours ago I made among others Kelderman, van Raaphorst, Vlietman, Tietz, van den Brink and now it doesn't appear yet. I thought it had to appear immediately, because the first I made (Lieftink) did appear with 3 names immediately. Fred Bergman 06:11, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
