Category:1330s mountainsEdit

Confusing category name Jmabel ! talk 01:35, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

It seems to me that this and similarly named categories are very confusingly named. Normally, when we have a category "1330s whatever" it means that it was created in the 1330s (decade). In this case, "1330s" refers to the number of meters. I know of no precedent (in Commons or elsewhere) for using an expression like this in the English language to refer to height. I believe this should be renamed as Category:Mountains between 1330 and 1340 meters; similarly for all other similarly named categories. - Jmabel ! talk 01:39, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Are there any other height-based (or weight-based, etc.) categories to use as an example in naming this? --Philosopher Let us reason together. 12:29, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

While the moves probably would be an improvement, there aren't enough participants here for me to feel comfortable moving that many categories. Feel free to renominate, where it's likely to get seen by more than three people. Sven Manguard Wha? 01:12, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
