PeerInfinity, is it possible to change the name of this Category to "Theses" rather than "Conclusions"?  "Conclusion" has a tone of finality, and of claiming to speak for a whole community, that I don't think is appropriate; what should really be going here are theses that have been developed at length.  If it's possible to change the name of this category to "Theses", please do so. --[[User:Eliezer Yudkowsky|Eliezer Yudkowsky]] 09:38, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

PeerInfinity, is it possible to change the name of this Category to "Theses" rather than "Conclusions"? "Conclusion" has a tone of finality, and of claiming to speak for a whole community, that I don't think is appropriate; what should really be going here are theses that have been developed at length. If it's possible to change the name of this category to "Theses", please do so. --Eliezer Yudkowsky 09:38, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

MediaWiki doesn't have a handy tool to rename categories and automatically update all pages in that category, but since there are currently only 4 pages in this category, this is still an easy change to make. I went ahead and updated the four pages in this category, and replaced Category:Conclusions with Category:Theses. --PeerInfinity 19:48, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
