Category:Churches in the canton of Beuzeville[edit]

Inappropriate category. Same goes for Category:Churches in the canton of Bourgtheroulde, Category:Churches in the canton of Cormeilles, Category:Churches in the canton of Bourgtheroulde, Category:Churches in the canton de Montfort-sur-Risle, Category:Churches in the canton of Pont-Audemer, Category:Churches in the canton of Quillebeuf, Category:Churches in the canton of Routot, Category:Churches in the canton of Saint-Georges-du-Vièvre. The files in it are often only categorized with this category, nobody that does not live in the canton knows what cities and villages are in it. That means, if someone writes an article about one of the villages in the canton it's possible, that he won't find the photo. I know that Category:Churches in Eure needs diffusion, but since it is a location category, why not rather categorize them by villages, like in Category:Cities and villages in Eure, example: Category:Churches in Bernay and Category:Churches in Brionne. I would be willing to create the new categories (Churches in nameoftown).--Stanzilla (talk) 10:51, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Well, there are many images in the category Churches in Eure. And there are also a great number of villages in this département (not less than 675!). On the French Wikipedia, name of canton is indicated for each French village : so it is not difficult to find to which canton belongs a village, and so find an image if any. Anyway, I have already loaded many images of churches in Eure, and if another category is introduced, I will only indicate Churches in Eure. Best regards.

Yes, I know there are many villages but I would be willing to sort them all in categories per commune, because I don't think they can be found by other people, if they are in canton categories. It is somehow contemplative for me to make categories and sort photos, so I wouldn't mind to do that. It wouldn't be difficult to find churches by commune categories, even if we had 675, because it's alphabetical. I really have no idea what towns are in which cantons and would never search for cantons if I need photos for an article of a commune, and nobody puts photos of churches in articles about cantons. The photos are stored here to be put in articles, or not? Yes, I know you are a very active contributor and I appreciate that. Regards,--Stanzilla (talk) 22:36, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
It is not forbidden having several categories for the same image. So, add your own categories if you want, and as many as you want, but do not erase the categories I put, because it is useful (for me) to determine which ones are lacking, and thus completing the collection. After all, what happens if the so called user doesn't know (and doesn't want to know) in which département - even in which province or country - a village is situated ? You might better have the 36000 villages of France or 350000 (?) villages of Europe in one category. Gérard Janot (talk) 07:02, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
Well, to be honest I think Churches in Eure doesn't need a diffusion by location, because the images should have a category of the commune the church is situated in anyways. A subcategory of cities and villages in Eure, and that would be the location category. Another location category would not be needed. The diffusion Churches in Eure needs is by patron saint, style and/or century. But okay if you say the canton categories are "user categories" just for you, so you know which images lack, then I'd prefer they wouldn't appear in the normal church-category tree at all, but be categorized as Category:User galleries or Category:Churches in Eure by Canton (as a subcategory of Churches in Eure). But okay the second, I won't ask for their deletion or moving or whatever and just add the proper categories. It would be great if you wouldn't change other churches categories, you can add your "user categories". And I'll add commune categories and patron saint/century or style categories whenever possible.--Stanzilla (talk) 10:05, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
Oh and there's no problem about 350000 categories for communes, because every commune should have a category under the Category:Cities and villages in Eure (and other départements respectively) anyways.--Stanzilla (talk) 10:17, 31 October 2011 (UTC) And there's already a metacategory called: Category:Churches in France by city.--Stanzilla (talk) 10:34, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
Since there is only Template:Category definition: French commune and not for cantons, I am making a simple metacategory Category:Churches in Eure by canton that doesn't include a navigational template. I hope you'll like it.--Stanzilla (talk) 11:34, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
