Re: What to do with historical crew and flag categories?
If the crew and flag categories are obsolete, then why are the pirate categories still under active maintenance with no objections heard?

And why are the categories obsolete when it hurts nothing to leave them in place? Articles can be in multiple categories at once. We don't have to sacrifice tagging articles as "Emerald Ocean crews" just because we want to keep them in "Hunter Ocean crews" or "Sage Ocean crews".

Categories are intended as an aid to reader navigation. If a user of YPPedia comes to us and says "how can I find a list of all crews that existed on Sage at the time of the ocean merge?" we can show her Category:Sage Ocean crews. (Category:Defunct Sage Ocean crews also exists, and I have seen no movement to depopulate or delete these categories.)
