Earlier, I proposed moving Category:National Park Service to Category:United States National Park Service. That discussion closed with no consensus. Please see Category talk:National Park Service. I think that the main arguments for moving Category:United States National Park Service to Category:National Park Service are that it is more concise and, as far as I've been able to determine, unambiguous. Regarding the latter point, the names of some government agencies in non-English speaking countries are translated into English as National Park Service, but the name of the agency in the official language of the country is not National Park Service.

  • I agree with the move. Seems to be rather straightforward...I'm thinking that combining these categories into National Park Service should fine. Maybe toss this over to the Commons Village Pump to get more feedback?--MONGO 03:33, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. The organization name is National Park Service and not United States National Park Service (United States government probably invented the concept). The English Wikipedia uses the concise name, and there is no evidence that the concise name would be ambiguous in Commons. --Juiced lemon 07:44, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
