Category:2005 deaths[edit]

It's only 2004, and we don't know who will die in 2005. How is this category useful?? 66.245.70.89 17:55, 24 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Keep. Just leave it alone, another 40 days or so and we will just need to create it again... :) --Sortior 22:32, Nov 24, 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. I agree with the fact that in about 35 days we would have to make it again. CMC 23:18, Nov 24, 2004 (UTC)
  • No doubt the category will be useful relatively soon. However, I might point out that someone has already added articles to this category, (Berkeley Software Distribution, for example), and while this is mildly amusing, it could attract more nonsense. Jonathunder 20:00, 2004 Nov 25 (UTC)
  • Wasnt' this already listed here? Empty: Re-Delete. -- User:Docu
  • Keep Remove it? when we know it will be needed soon? to quote Kenneth Williams' last words: what's the bloody point? jguk 00:30, 26 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. I'm with Kenneth Williams. :o) — OwenBlacker 21:24, Nov 26, 2004 (UTC)

De Lorean, John Z. Appearing under the "L" category[edit]

Sorry, still fairly new to Wiki so don't know how to change this to have him showing up under the D's and not under the L's

Thanks!

Done and done. It is a matter of chaging the sort key in the category tag of the article. Good catch! 205.206.123.248 18:06, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Cross-categorization possible?[edit]

Pardon the probable wiki-ignorance, but by chance I found one of the YYYY deaths pages (not this one) and was curious about why it wasn't a subset of a parent Notable Deaths node.
