"lists of lists"?!? Is that all? Maybe we need "lists of lists of lists". I think that the user will be confused. Can be just get rid of this? -- Fplay 08:34, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Suggestion to merge in Structured Lists[edit]

I've been trying to figure out what a Structured List was supposed to be. If no one steps up with a better definition I have no problem with merging them. --JeffW 04:08, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

What page are you referring to? Could you maybe provide a link? I couldn't find it. 18:57, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

I contend that this is a reasonable category to be self-referencing. As per Wikipedia:Categorization: "However, acceptable loops also exist. Self-referencing systems such as the meta- fields naturally create cycles that provide many examples." This category is obviously a list whose members are also lists, and therefore falls under the category of lists of lists, which happens to be itself. -Heartofgoldfish 07:35, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

Except that only articles are considered to be "Lists" not categories. All categories are lists of course but it would be ridiculous to include every category page on this page. --JeffW 04:10, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Misuse of LoL category[edit]

I think there is some misunderstanding about what articles belong in this category. This category is for lists of lists - that is, the items in this category are lists that contain other lists. It is not for any List_of_* article. Many of the articles in this category do not belong here. -- 15:29, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Very true. The articles contained here should contain the lists of various lists, not lists in and of themselves. Though why would we need multiple pages containing lists of lists. Shouldn't one suffice?--Russoc4 (talk) 03:50, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps this article should be renamed List of Lists of Lists? —Preceding unsigned comment added by ZappyGun (talkcontribs) 14:40, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Bot Request[edit]

Obviously all of these should be here. So if anybody can be bothered it might be a good idea to write a bot to put all of those pages in this category. (talk) 10:39, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Should List of Lists list List of Lists as List of Lists is also a List?[edit]

For completeness sake, the artical List of Lists really should list itself under the initial L. Anyone to object? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:26, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

should we add the list of all lists that doesn't contain itself?[edit]
