Special:PrefixIndex/Category:Types_of shows many categories with plural, like Category:Types of restaurants or Category:Types of roads. At Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2011_July_6#Categories_of_types_of_things, the consensus was to retain plural form, as could be seen. Brandmeistertalk 13:47, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
I read that CFD as no consensus either way, due to WP:ENGVAR, not a consensus to use plurals. – Fayenatic London 14:49, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
Then it's moot, without valid reason to oppose until a new consensus to consistently use either plural or singular emerges, if any. Brandmeistertalk 15:07, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
More to the point, it's moot, so it does not meet the criteria for C2C (see above). – Fayenatic London 18:18, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
Under C2C, the established naming convention for that category tree is Category:Drinking establishments, which can't use singular form, while the subcats in Category:Categories by type also use plural. Brandmeistertalk 21:01, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
Category:Drinking establishments rightly uses the plural, per WP:CATNAME, but for categories beginning "Types of", the plural is already in the word "Types". "Types of drinking establishments" might sound right to you, but it sounds wrong to others. Hence, there was no consensus at the CFD in 2014, and this is not speedy-able now. – Fayenatic London 14:10, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
