Category:LitwinsEdit

Propose this category for deletion for the reason that it has no subject, because Litwin is just Polish (and formerly also Russian) for Lithuanian. --glossologist (talk) 08:34, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

There are articles ru:Литвины, en:Litvin, pl:Litwini w znaczeniu historycznym, uk:Литвини. --Лобачев Владимир (talk) 11:52, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, I'm pretty aware of that. Unfortunately they don't make this category any more valid as they describe the historic usage of the Slavic-language ethnonym Litvin/Litwin which doesn't exist in English and doesn't give any clear criteria for a categorisation, which is the most important. --glossologist (talk) 12:19, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
Symbol keep vote.svg Agree with the deletion. This category just makes no sense. GiW (talk) 17:12, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

So do you mean that there should be no separate category for "residents of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania" ? Where should they go then ? --Foroa (talk) 06:55, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
So by this logic "residents of USSR" should go under category:Ruskies etc.? Please don't invent things. 更迅速 (talk) 14:43, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
Perhaps such category may exist, but certainly not under the name "Litwins", plus at the moment all that category contains is just three 19th century (i.e., post-GDL era) paintings. --glossologist (talk) 13:31, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
