Not a valid topic, Category:Sign languages is a language family category -- Prince Kassad 17:49, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Looks valid to me. Compare Category:fr:Languages (or any other xx:Languages cat listed atop the page [[Category:Languages]]). I'll say keep (unless someone can explain why not).—msh210 20:24, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
The difference is that Category:Languages is a topical category, whereas Category:Sign languages is not. Compare it to Category:Turkic languages, where we don't have Category:fr:Turkic languages etc. either. -- Prince Kassad 19:58, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
If Category:Turkic languages is not topical then why is there an entry in it? These all seem topical to me. Why do you think that Languages is and the others are not?—msh210 20:35, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
This is an erroneous categorization and should be removed. The Category:All languages with all its subcategories is reserved for language categories only, so we can categorize the languages on Wiktionary by language family, country, etc. Actual entries on languages are only supposed to go to Category:Languages. -- Prince Kassad 20:48, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Kept, and separating the two categories into Category:Sign languages and Category:All sign languages per precedent. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:20, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
