Wikipedia:Categories for deletion/Category:Wonders of the World
The following discussion comes from Wikipedia:Categories for deletion, where it is currently listed as unresolved. It may be reviewed again in the future in the light of evolving standards and guidelines for categorization. 22:15, 24 Dec 2004 (UTC)
- Basically we have one person arguing that the category should be kept and two arguing that it shouldn't. Since no one else is weighing in, the consensus is vague at best. Let's re-examine this one later. -[[User:Aranel|Aranel ("Sarah")]] 18:10, 25 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Unless this category is restricted to a very specific list, by turning it into, for example, Category:Seven Wonders of the World (and listing only the ancient list given by Antipater of Sidon), this category will be inherently always POV: who's to say whether any ancient structure qualifies or does not qualify as a "Wonder of the World"? —Lowellian (talk)[] 17:40, Nov 17, 2004 (UTC)
- Agree. Delete -- Kpalion
It was me who originally created the category. I just listed the explanation for this on Category talk:Wonders of the World.
- Basically I thought it would be useful for navigation. I think that the POVness can be easily solved by making a requirement that an object appears in any list by any author that is either titled "...Wonders..." (such as Seven Wonders of the Medieval Mind) or is obviously about wonders (such as the list of historic civil engineering landmarks by the American Society of Civil Engineers).
- I also don't think it should be deleted before we run into some real (not hypothetical) heated debates about whether something can be considered a wonder of the world.
So I think it should be kept. Paranoid 20:52, 17 Nov 2004 (UTC)
- Is this still live? If so, I believe this category to be inherently POV, and so vote Delete. — Asbestos | Talk 11:58, 19 Dec 2004 (UTC)
