Category talk:Roads in the Czech Republic by type

- Oppose renaming to Category:Roads in the Czech Republic by type. "Type" of road is an unclear word which can mean many different views (as material of the surface, a disposition of lanes and tracks etc.), while a category of road (kategorie pozemní komunikace) is an exact and official term. There are four basic categories of roads: dálnice, silnice, místní komunikace and účelové komunikace. Some of them (especially "silnice") are subdivided into classes (třídy). Btw, category names using the words "by category" referencing to Commons categories seem to be weird and improper. --ŠJů (talk) 01:37, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
- As far as I know, there is no other category that uses the words "by category" however that was the first thing I thought about when I saw the name of this category. It may be a correct term, but I think we can make it clearer in the context of our category system. Streets, highways, etc. are types of roads and it can apply to countries that don't have any kind of official classification. If you don't like type, what about "by classification"? Or even "by category of road"? Rocket000 (talk) 02:16, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
- Roads by category of road? It's a pleonasm as "Ships by name of ship" or "Rivers by country of river".
- I suppose that every country has its specific categorization (classification) of roads (and ways). Classification of one country is only approximately comparable with classification of other country. There exists hardly some country which have neither official classification. But you are right that besides official categories there exist also un-official types and subtypes (e. g. "street" is not an official type in the Czech Republic but only an urbanistic term which is partly approximating to "místní komunikace" = "municipal road"). You are right that such mixture of official categories and classes and un-official types can be called "types" together, then I Support your proposal. --ŠJů (talk) 21:30, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
- Alright, I moved it. I'm still not entirely happy with the name, but I can't think of anything better. It includes more than just roads (like Category:Bikeways in the Czech Republic). A technically correct name would be "Land transport infrastructure" but that's a bit much ;) Rocket000 (talk) 14:30, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
