Category:Miscellaneous engineersEdit

  • This sub-category was listed for deletion on April 9, 2005. Consensus was to Delete. The following discussion from CFD is now closed and should not be modified.

"Miscellaneous" is ambiguous. There is currently only 1 article. — Instantnood 07:26, Apr 9, 2005 (UTC)

  • Keep It's obviously intended to be ambiguous, and to serve as a waypoint in the creation of new subcategories as necessary. It serves a useful purpose when you are in Category:Engineers and this fits under "subcategories" along with other specific branches, which are not all-inclusive. It also gives people unsure of the subclassification a logical place to put them; somebody will probably eventually put it in a sharper category, if it is noticed in this subcategory.

  • Delete I don't see any logical difference between putting an article in this category vs the parent category:engineers category. Also violates BOTH of the guidelines at WP:CG#When to use categories (although it is amusing to imagine an article which should obviously be in this category - perhaps it would start J. Doe was a miscellaneous engineer from a miscellaneous country who lived in a miscellaneous era of history ...). -- Rick Block 16:36, 9 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. No need for a "miscellaneous" category - just put those entries into the parent. --Azkar 20:24, 9 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. I think Miscellaneous should be a banned word in category names. I can't think of any case where just leaving it out wouldn't be better. --ssd 13:26, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. Ssd took the words out of my mouth. -- Linuxbeak 03:34, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)
