Category:2004_Featured_pictures_on_Wikimedia_Commons[edit]

It is the only year-by-year featured picture category. Such categories do not help in sorting media meaningfully. 124.168.218.92 12:11, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

I can't remember why this was created, possibly because the early FP discussions weren't archived in the same way they were later and it was more difficult to find FPs from a particular year. Contrary to the assertion by 124.168.218.92, I would suggest creating a category for each year for finding FPs for a particular year. If "Such categories do not help in sorting media meaningfully" I suggest we also delete all the year categories that hold images defined by the the rather vague description "related to the year xxxx" Category:1900, Category:1901, ... Category:2009,Category:2010, Category:2011 etc. --Tony Wills (talk) 12:34, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
