What is the purpose of this category? In what contexts is it added to an image? Wondering, -- Infrogmation 15:06, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Roughly 2 years later, I have the same question. - Jmabel ! talk 02:42, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Until category intersections are available, I don't see much use for adding file pages directly. It is useful as a parent category for hidden cats that track pages using location templates such as those from Commons:geocoding eg {tl|location}} and others (like {{places by decade}} that emit microformat location data. -J JMesserly (talk) 17:28, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
