Name[edit]

I think this should be called Category:FruitsPekinensis 03:36, 10 May 2005 (UTC)

Removing this category from pages?[edit]

Noticed that this category was being removed from many fruit pages. Anyone mind explaining why? -download ׀ talk 04:56, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

I removed about 150 odd tree species from the category. Prior to removing them the category stretched across two pages and was not a useful navigation guide. It was difficult to spot an article such as, say, fruit allergy since it was wall to wall with binomial plant names. There is now 85 pages and it is much more reader-friendly. Rather than being a category that is "mainly about plants that bear fruit, oh and a few other articles" it is now about "fruit". I had done the same with Category:Trees. I see little merit in adding thousands of articles to a category based on a very common characteristic. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 05:46, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
