Category names

What standard should we have for category names? Only the first word should be capitalized unless it's a given name, as precedence for that is well established on the wiki. However, should they be plural or singular? I don't care much either way, but currently most categories are singular. Wikipedia uses plurals though.

I've just installed the extension ReplaceText, so it won't be hard to update the existing pages to whatever standard we decide on. ~ Meneth (talk) 23:22, 21 April 2013 (CEST)

If the category title refers to the contents of the category, then it should be in the plural. For example, if it is a category that contains strategy guides, it only makes sense to call the category "Strategy guides". But a category name like "Community" can be singular, because the category contains articles relating to the concept "Community", and not articles on individual communities.
