I don't know if Category:SubGenius is really useful because it could include everything on this site! There's a Category:SubGenii for SubGenius individuals, so I don't think we need Category:SubGenius. Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 03:19, July 22, 2015 (UTC)

I agree. It does seem redundant. Pope Hilde (talk) 13:39, July 22, 2015 (UTC)
That category page says "This category is for articles related to SubGenii or the Church of the SubGenius." where as the SubGenii category page says "This category is for people who are dues-paying SubGenii ordained as ministers in the Church of the SubGenius."  So while it could be argued that the first are rectangles to the seconds' square, I would think it makes sense to trim the SubGenii from Category:SubGenius and recast it as *just* the official Church bits. Jzp-wikia (talk) 01:26, July 23, 2015 (UTC)
Can you think of a different name than Category:SubGenius? In the Discordian Wiki instead of Category:Discordian (which would include everything) we have Category:Pope (not popes because there's only one pope and we're all it). :) Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 03:22, July 23, 2015 (UTC)
I appreciate your suggestion, but to me that wouldn't solve the issue. If an article isn't "related to SubGenii or the Church of the SubGenius," then why is it on this website? I believe the category is redundant and not needed, but that is just my personal opinion. If most see a need for it, I won't challenge it. Pope Hilde (talk) 16:27, July 23, 2015 (UTC)
It looks like all three of us agree that Category:SubGenii doesn't need to be a subcategory so I'll change that. :) Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 01:42, July 29, 2015 (UTC)
Actually, I checked and Category:SubGenii is not a subcategory of SubGenius, so that's not an issue. :) Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 01:46, July 29, 2015 (UTC)
I guess you're right. Maybe see what articles that don't fit SubGenii would fit. Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 01:40, July 29, 2015 (UTC)
As Jzp-wikia wants articles that aren't SubGenius deleted from this site,[1], seems all three of us think the SubGenius category is unneeded. I'll see what articles don't have a category when it's removed and look for a new category. Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 02:35, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

Here's ways many articles can be removed at once. I'm not good with code so might screw it up but maybe somebody else can do it. http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:886132#6 Miley Spears Discordian American Princess to the Stars (let's talk) 00:47, August 4, 2015 (UTC)

It wasn't a lot of articles,only 140 or so. Job done; category is now empty. --Jzp-wikia (talk) 06:46, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
I blanked and deleted the category. Thank you very much, both of you! Pope Hilde (talk) 12:52, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
