Categories aren't seeded
I followed the instructions [here](https://collab.codidact.org/posts/280451), but even after running `rails db:seed`, there aren't any categories.

Console:

```
moshi@Alpha:~/qpixel$ rails db:create
Running via Spring preloader in process 11391
Created database 'qpixel_dev'
Created database 'qpixel_test'

Checking via console:
```
moshi@Alpha:~/qpixel$ rails c
Running via Spring preloader in process 11500

irb(main):001:0> Category.all.to_a
  Category Load (0.6ms)  SELECT `categories`.* FROM `categories` WHERE `categories`.`community_id` IS NULL
=> []
```

Clearly, the categories haven't been seeded. What did I do wrong, and how do I fix this?
