Eg. [[Category:Veteran]] or [[Category:Veterans]]?

[[Category:Prime Minister of Canada]] or [[Category:Prime Ministers of Canada]]?

[[Category:Painter]] or [[Category:Painters]]?

Currently, most (but not all) of the categories to which this question applies are plural. Also, Wikipedia categories are always plural. So those two points make me vote for plural. :)

I would say plural... I wouldnt put you in a category of awesome person, but awesome people... because its a list of people, you are just a part of it ;)

Either way consistency is key...

I vote plural, though
lol! Best. Example. Ever. :P
I'd say this question is now settled. Please add it to the style sheet. Thanks!
