Cat move[edit]

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose As defined in COM:CAT the goal of a category name: ... it implies that you'll associate a single subject with a given category. The category name would be enough to guess the subject,

The goal is not to make it short or make some sort of short term logic that says with that name we have not something that looks like it. Moreover the suggested name is wrongly capitalised.

According to the emerging Commons standard, which works for films, books songs, books, paintings ... is <Title> by <Author> or <Title> <(book/song/film/...)> if the author is unknown or not significant. So the correct category name should be As a White Slave by Nellie Bly. --Foroa (talk) 21:04, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

I totally disagree with Foroa. When a category concerns a work of art (novel, film, painting, etc), the category title should be the correct title of the concerned work of art. The author is mentioned only in case of disambiguation or possible confusion. But the author has to be mentioned twice : 1) an introduction of the category that explains what this category is about ; 2) the mother category of the author is added to the category of the concerned work of art.
In any case, the correct title of this book should be "As A White Slave", which has to be respected, whatever the decision is concerning the mention of the author. --TwoWings * to talk or not to talk... 08:12, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

OK, I'm sorry. I thought it was a mistake and that you meant "Nellie Bly's As A White Slave" as for "Nellie Bly has written this book untitled As A White Slave". My apologies. I withdraw the move request. --TwoWings * to talk or not to talk... 14:40, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
