I've never heard of Wattpad before, but it seems to have been (be?) a platform not just a software and almost a genre.

Nominator's rationale: delete per WP:OCEPON, the category only contains the eponymous article and a subcategory. Marcocapelle (talk) 07:36, 17 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oppose. This category includes a subcategory about her generals. Because the category doesn't cover exactly the same topic, it isn't eponymous. See this text from WP:OCEPON

A category that covers exactly the same topic as an article is known as the eponymous category for that article (e.g. New York City and Category:New York City; Mekong and Category:Mekong River; Abraham Lincoln and Category:Abraham Lincoln ). Eponymous categories should not be created unless enough directly-related articles or sub-categories exist. However, this should not be done simply to reduce the number of categories displayed in an article.

Nominator's rationale: Overlapping category (WP:OVERLAPCAT) and maybe WP:OCEGRS; I'm also nominating this one. When I searched looked that the page for Aphrodite, she didn't have anything written about being LGBT. And the more I'm thinking about this I am inclined to propose deleting the entire tree as none of the gods listed have LGBT as a defining characteristic as far as I can tell. Mason (talk) 21:53, 29 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delete all. Besides WP:NONDEF, honestly, this category looks like nonsense, as Marcocapelle said in their comment. Maybe there's material for a category along these lines, but this isn't it. Edward-Woodrowtalk 13:18, 30 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
BTW there's another discussion regarding Category:LGBT deities. AHI-3000 (talk) 23:07, 30 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • What does "LGBT god" even mean? Does it refer to his own sexuality, or is he a god to be worshipped for LGBT issues? The articles in the category barely touch upon the subject. This is probably better for a list, in which a detailed description can be given of any type of LGBT relationship. Marcocapelle (talk) 06:31, 30 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delete all per WP:NONDEF. –Aidan721 (talk) 13:16, 30 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delete all albeit for a different reason. I think being LGBT could well be a defining characteristic. However, this category seems to be currently haphazardly applied to any god where any story exists with vaguely LGBT theme, or unknown other reasons (some modern group writing stories implying that?). Most mythologies don't have a single authoritative source on a deity's deeds, so things like Zeus having contradictory aspects really just means that people in city X had different stories than people in city Y. This makes it very difficult to figure out which attributes are "core" and which are closer to, say, views of specific denominations of a religion. SnowFire (talk) 14:57, 30 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • @Bearcat: you should presumably contribute to this discussion too, since you are the main contributor in the discussion about the parent category. Marcocapelle (talk) 06:09, 3 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I originally closed this discussion, but the more I think about this the more I started to disagree with my own close so I have withdrawn it and am commenting instead. The elephant in the room is that the proposed target for a merge (Category:LGBT deities) is currently at CfD itself. There is support for deletion of all three categories here, but zero support for deleting Category:LGBT deities at its own CfD. I think that the best course of action at this point is to close this as no consensus / keep for now / put on hold, pending the outcome of the aforementioned. That way, we can have a discussion with the knowledge of what the options are for the two categories nominated. HouseBlastertalk 00:11, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Zero support for deleting Category:LGBT deities is incorrect, especially when "delete" and "listify" are taken together. But it does make sense waiting for closure of that one before closing this one. If Category:LGBT deities is not closed as listify/delete then this discussion will probably take another turn too. Marcocapelle (talk) 07:09, 14 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • @Marcocapelle: I could have been more clear: there was no support for outright deletion. "Delete all" !votes imply "do not merge/listify/etc. anywhere" (at least to me). HouseBlastertalk 01:43, 21 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nominator's rationale: Underpopulated stub category without evidence of approval by WikiProject Stub Sorting. As always, stub categories are not free for just any user to create for just any topic on a whim -- there have to be at least 60 articles to file in a stub category before its creation is warranted, and because of that size bar they have to be authorized by the WikiProject before they can be created.
But this wasn't submitted for approval, there's only one article in the category, and there's absolutely no prospect of getting to 60 articles since even the Category:Palestinian scientists parent tree only encompasses 47 articles total across itself and all of its subcategories.
I'm agnostic on whether the templates need to exist or not, as they can always just sort pages into the parent categories -- but a dedicated category for them can't exist until there are at least 59 more articles in it than this. Bearcat (talk) 12:41, 16 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nominator's rationale: I'm not 100% sure of this, a bit complicated. For context, "Koryo-saram" means literally "Korean person". I previously proposed (and it seems likely to pass) that Category:Koryo-saram be renamed "Koryo-saram people", to make clear that it's a people category and to distinguish it from Category:Koryo-saram society. And for other categories like Category:Literature about Zainichi Korean people, the term "people" is used.
Tl;dr if we're already allowing "Koryo-saram people" and other categories use the "x about y people" pattern, should this also? toobigtokale (talk) 03:26, 16 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
