Proposed merge to Category:Demolished buildings[edit]

I don't think the proposed merge is such a good idea. I agree that there is much ambiguity that needs to be addressed, but this isn't the best way. Demolished implies that the buildings were deliberately destroyed, and does not include buildings that burned, collapsed, were destroyed in a war, or were otherwise lost.

Former does not imply that the buildings have been destroyed. --Foroa (talk) 12:02, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
Merge and Move request declined. Former buildings covers a larger range than demolished buildings, its subcategory. --Havang(nl) (talk) 11:28, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
