I saw this inconsistency but let it lie. My position stated in the by location category scheme was that preposition use favours that which is currently existing unless there is some ambiguity. It really wasn't challenged so I'm not sure it is the correct statement. In any case, if there is no objections to your proposal, I'd be happy to write the MakBot code to perform your conversions. Or you could have oregeno bot do it I suppose. Whatever. Ping me in two weeks if you'd like to accept the offer.-Mak 19:50, 5 August 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for the offer. There are a lot of other concerned categories which are not listed (example : the subcategories of the states of the USA).
The logic here is quite simple : natural things are of the location, while artefacts and other human affairs are in the location. Sunrises and sunsets in a specific location are not native, because you can observe such events near everywhere in the world. --Juiced lemon 15:24, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

The same problem with sunsets/rise-Cats (all except one are "of country-name"):

Alphabetical order[edit]

For some reason the categories "Finland" and "Iceland" are not in the alphabetical order. Who knows why please change it, thx.--Edroeh 22:52, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
