Category:2010 movies[edit]

  • Listed for deletion on April 4, 2005. Consensus was to Delete. The following discussion took place and should not be modified.

Speculatory category that contained only one article (on the alleged 2010 The Hobbit movie) that is currently on VfD with consensus leaning heavily towards deletion. Radiant_* 12:09, Apr 4, 2005 (UTC)

Delete. The anonymous user who created this category seems convinced this movie will be released on December 1, 2010, too. I just had to delete a reference to this in the year article for 2010. Way too early and speculative; this movie hasn't even been commissioned yet. 23skidoo 13:54, 4 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • comment I suppose it would be OK if there was a verifiable and trustworthy reference, yes? Courtland 05:35, 2005 Apr 5 (UTC)
  • For an article, certainly. For a category, no - if a category has only one or two entries, then it shouldn't exist. Radiant_* 07:51, Apr 5, 2005 (UTC)
    • I agree that categories with 1 or two articles are unfortunate and unfortunately more common than desired. However, this particular category is certain to grow, no question of that, so it is merely a matter of timing. When is early too early? Hmm, that actually brings me to voting.

Keep per comments immediately above. I do not support creation of categories just because they might be needed, but if there is an article or two that can fit in a category that is certain to grow, there's little harm in including that category, in my opinion. Courtland 03:27, 2005 Apr 6 (UTC)
Delete. Even if this category was useful, it'd have to be renamed to Category:2010 films. Xezbeth 05:32, Apr 5, 2005 (UTC)
Delete—too far ahead to be reliable enough for documentation. I don't think we should trust anything farther ahead than the next calendar year. Postdlf 16:42, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Merge all future year-release categories into Category: Films yet to be released or similar. Assuming this movie is going to be made it will presumably be released sometime. Grutness|hello? 05:17, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Delete Anything can happen within five years, so let's wait for 2010 to come, first. Linuxbeak 03:32, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)
