New Category Proposal

Opening or inauguration, are terms used when a public office, a business, private association or other have the official opening of a new location. Usually when this happens a party is promoted to have a opening/inauguration ceremony and normally someone important or famous is invited to make the opening/inauguration, and to mark the date is placed a small monument or a plaque that usually says something like for example:

 

THE BUILDING

OPEN (or) INAUGURATED BY

THE PRESIDENT

MICKEY MOUSE

1/1/1928

 

I find it fascinating to discover those, and see who was the person who opened /inaugurated and when it was.

I think would make a interesting category.

 

Here are some examples that I have photographed:

This was inaugurated on March 20, 2004 by Prime Minister José Manuel Durão Barroso (Today he is the 11th President of the European Commission)

This is a interesting one because it was inaugurated on June 24, 1996 by the Mayor of the Portuguese city of Guimarães (Today he his still the Mayor but this year is the last) and the Mayor of the Spanish city of Igualada (He was the Mayor from 1995 to 1999).

This was inaugurated on September 18, 1993 by Prime Minister Aníbal António Cavaco Silva (He was Prime Minister from 1985 to 1995. Today he is the President of the Republic since 2006).

Perhaps you have found your calling for where to place caches? I don't think we need a new category for this, but that's just my take on the situation.

What happened to this category? Did it not pass the peer review? How is it that only one member bothered to comment on this post yet more than a few commented in the peer review about the lack of discussion in the forums. Seems to me that the opportunity was there and no one took it.

It usually takes a few days after the vote is completed before the category is reviewed by Groundspeak.
