Category talk:Useful images
A few questions and comments about this new type of category:
- Should we rename the general name of this category, to something such as minicommons, image pool, or otherwise?
- Should we start the categorization now, e.g. Images of plumbing parts, or wait until we are at critical mass (let's say one or two hundred images)?
- I see this category for images such as general construction parts and tools. What else makes sense to go here, i.e. what else would be reused often in other pages?
- We should definitely use this space to encourage the use of commons:Main page for images that are likely candidates of reuse.

Categorization of images should begin now.[edit source]
I believe the categorization of images should begin now. A category of "useful images," won't actually contain any useful images unless they are organized in categories which make it easy to locate needed or wanted images quickly and easily. Yes, categories may start out barren, but will be fleshed out more quickly if image categories are identified off-the-bat. The categories' establishment, and especially their emptiness, might be the impetuses that inspire their population. Plus, can't these specific categories be placed in a larger "useful images category?"--Aaron 22:44, 25 October 2006 (PDT)
