Remove from marked for deletion?

There’s still a reason to keep this category. For one, the {{infobox}} template still tries to categorize pages here. Secondly in most cases, infoboxes that do not use data rows are considered an error. We have the “nocat=yes” parameter to remove purposeful infoboxes which lack data rows, so I see no point in removing the category, or the categorization.

After all, if this category was only supposed to be for {{quest}}s and {{tavern}}s, why do Category:Quests and Category:Taverns also exist, neither of them calling Category:Articles which use infobox templates with no data rows their parent category?

Wikipedia:Category:Articles which use infobox templates with no data rows itself says

Administrators: Please do not delete this category even if it is empty! This category may be empty occasionally or even most of the time.

Unfortunately, yeah, I agree — this category is a fairly important maintenance category, and it should probably be kept. The addition of |decat=yes to {{Quest}} and {{Tavern}} will just make it easier to keep empty, heh 😊 -- Djonni (talk) 03:59, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
Since I feel that this is uncontroversial, with apologies to WardPhoenix I'm going to go ahead and undo the mark for deletion. If one day we find this category is no longer required, we can mark it for deletion again then 😊 -- Djonni (talk) 08:04, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
Well, the category was created alongside the {{quest}} template, because i couldn't find how to fix it back then. But if you think the category is still necessary "just in case", feel free to keep it. It's not like mass deleting of categories would suddenly be done anyway x) --WardPhoenix (talk) 13:13, 25 November 2019 (UTC)
