You should list these as Category:Famous Persons, Carlos BoArthur

Well, given tha *here* not all rulers are Famous Persons outside their realms and their times... I have just seen a new category of World Leaders... not that I am too convinced, but I could go through my pages. Carlos Th.

Motion for Revamp

I think we should go through the list of "Famous Persons" and relocate them to world leaders and just plain "Category:People" if they're not so famous. BoArthur

Revision

I think that the category itself should be reserved for individuals not in one of the subcategories. E.g., Benedict Arnold should only be in Category:Famous Persons Nik 22:30, 5 January 2006 (PST)

Thirded. And besides, I think we shouldn't exaggerate with those categories. As far as I am concerned, creating subcategories is something that should be done only when the parent category gets too big, or when there is a very strong logical reason to create it. But in general, I still am convinced that we should avoid trying to make everything look like Wikipedia.
And indeed, we should decide what to do with the Famous Persons Page. I have a feeling that it is merely a remnant from the Old Wiki, which didn't allow categories, and that we don't really need it anymore. On the other hand, I'd like to keep it, be it for sentimental reasons. But it should be updated. —IJzeren Jan Uszkie┼étu? 07:16, 6 January 2006 (PST)
