Category:2005 deaths[edit]

It's only 2004, and we don't know who will die in 2005. How is this category useful?? 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


Done and done. It is a matter of chaging the sort key in the category tag of the article. Good catch! 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.
