When creating subjects, you will have the opportunity to create/select a Parent Subject that will help members with navigating and browsing the database. A Parent Subject helps relate to other subjects that are a higher level in the hierarchy of potential categories. Basically, parent subjects help members browse up the relevant subject tree and widen their search.

Here are some more examples - 

  • For a Series, it will be the Brand that makes the series (but if it is, for example, a series of Freddy Mercury pins they can also be added to the Freddie Mercury subject)

  • For a driver, it will be their racing team (or possibly the 3 teams he drove for)

  • For a designer, it will be the brand that they worked for.
