Orphan categories[edit]

I think you are wrong to say topic categories are not subcats of set categories. Most company categories have a wide variety of articles in them - about people, products, law suits, controversies, and almost all topic categories lead to subcategories of people and organisations. Categorisation is messy. Rathfelder (talk) 09:26, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

Exactly so. Topic categories such as Category:Buzzfeed will generally contain set subcategories, but not vice versa. Eg Category:Media companies of the United States should only contain articles about companies and not contain any people or other non-companies. (Clearly various editors have added eponymous categories in error but there is no need to compound the error.) Oculi (talk) 09:50, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Well we cant leave Category:BuzzFeed as an orphan, so how shall we categorise it? I dont see that eponymous categories need special treatment. Many, maybe most, categories have an eponymous article. Why should this be treated differently from, for example, Category:Marvel Comics? Rathfelder (talk) 10:12, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
That's why we had Category:Wikipedia categories named after websites as a parent (which was not originally a maintenance category). I can't think of any correct parent for Category:BuzzFeed. Eponymous categories should not be listed as 'uncategorised'. Oculi (talk) 10:30, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
