Possibly we culd delyte categories named after things (ie. Category:Eponymous categories). ¯\_(ツ)_/¯MJLTauk 07:56, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

First phaseEedit

 Base Category ___
   YEAR + 1    ____\
 Base Category      \_______   DECADE
                    /       Base Category
   YEAR + 2    ____/             ↑
 Base Category                   |
                            Alt Category

Base Category - Births/Deaths/Establishments/Disestablishments.
Alt Category - More specific than a Base Category (ie. Companies established in DECADE or DECADE establishments in Scotland)

I'm generally against having Alt categories by year, but I think I have begun to come around to the idea we should have the four base categories by year regardless of size. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯MJLTauk 07:21, 19 Dizember 2019 (UTC)
