I think it should be moved to Category:en:Bones. --ElisaVan (talk) 08:59, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

Support, but let's call it "List of bones". There are a lot of categories like this that could benefit from less ambiguous names. DTLHS (talk) 23:43, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
No preference; it's not exactly ambiguous what either skeleton or bones refers to. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:07, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
I don't think it should be 'List of bones' because other categories (that I can think of) don't include "List" in their names, except the top level "List of topics". Why rename from Skeleton to Bones? What's the reason? - -sche (discuss) 03:59, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
Not moved. - -sche (discuss) 00:44, 26 February 2016 (UTC)
I support the move, though not everything related to the skeleton is a bone. So it's probably more sensible to create "bones" alongside "skeleton". The former would be a "set" category, the latter a "topic" category. —CodeCat 00:48, 26 February 2016 (UTC)
I'm sceptical that many people will realize or maintain that distinction in practice. OTOH, it does seem to fit what we already do (with Category:en:Cities containing only a list of cities, and not as far as I can tell any words related to cities, like [[city]]). - -sche (discuss) 03:03, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
