What are beachripples? The category seems to have been created as a subcat to Category:Sandripples, but now merely holds images of water waves on beaches. Crowsnest (talk) 14:19, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

ja, as the one to blame (I'm no native english), may be I did a bad choose - as it's not stable, we could remove it, if there's no specific english word für "sand ripples on the beach" - which geomorphologically differ from wind-made ripples and microdunes in deserts, as they are caused by water and wavelets (what might be "water ripples on the beach") - thats what I indended --W!B: (talk) 00:47, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
Hi W!B. How to proceed? My suggestion is: rename the category to "Sand ripples (beach)", and reshuffle the images therein and in "Sand ripples" (which category name should contain a space between sand and ripples). But I am open for better suggestions. -- Crowsnest (talk) 00:05, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
I created the categories Category:Sand ripples (beach) and Category:Sand ripples, and re-categorized files accordingly. -- Crowsnest (talk) 23:11, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

Moved to Category:Sand ripples (beach). --rimshottalk 14:32, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
