There are some protected templates, such as ''outofdate'', that ''don't'' have a category. This in part defeats the point of the templates, since looking for ''outofdate'' articles and fixing them is a lot harder without a category listing. While this isn't directly related to what's been discussed, I mention this because it merits attention. [[User:Time|Time]] 20:20, 11 December 2009 (EST)

Note about missing template categories

There are some protected templates, such as outofdate, that don't have a category. This in part defeats the point of the templates, since looking for outofdate articles and fixing them is a lot harder without a category listing. While this isn't directly related to what's been discussed, I mention this because it merits attention. Time 20:20, 11 December 2009 (EST)
