Addendum sit "utopicus, ut hic definitus" quia utopia seu u-topia primum solummodo "non locus" dicit. Quamobrem etiam libri 1984, Atlas shrugged et Animal farm - libri qui nullum locum habent - utopici habeantur. --Alex1011 09:22, 5 Maii 2007 (UTC)

In conformity with all eighteen of the other wikis that indisputably have a category about utopias (the five wikis written in scripts undecipherable at this keyboard excepted), this category should be abolished, and its contents should be shifted into [[Categoria:Utopiae]].

This is a category about Utopian literature, i.e. books about utopias. Its analogue in en:wiki is en:Category:Utopian fiction, which seems OK to me. I can't see any reason to delete it.
A category about utopias will, I guess, have entries for the names of the utopias and for notable features of those utopias, not for book titles. I'd favour creating such a category, as soon as we have articles about some utopias ... Ah, I see you already have created it. Fine. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 16:57, 29 Novembris 2012 (UTC)
The contents of Categoria:Utopiae came directly from the English wikipedia, but the overlap is puzzling, because most of the known utopias are found only in literature. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 17:12, 29 Novembris 2012 (UTC)
The general distinction is between a fictional thing ("Utopiae") and a genre or sub-genre of literature ("Litterae utopicae"): I think that makes sense? Continuing to think about it, if the name of the book is also the name of the utopia (Thomas More's is the most obvious case) we might reasonably consider our page to cover both bases and to fit in both categories ... which would be a reason for some overlap.
