Category:Small images[edit]

Category has a purported criterion for inclusion which is not clear from category name. Suggest rename to something like Category:Images up to 500 pixels in length (the supposed current criterion), since "small" is too ambiguous a term (small number of pixels? small number of bytes?). Note the four similarly-named subcategories:

all of which have the additional ambiguity of whether the "small" refers to the image or the object it's an image of. I'm directing CFDs for them to this entry, as well. - dcljr (talk) 00:28, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

I agree with new names. --Butko (talk) 10:15, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
Ok then we do so. But I would propose a categorization for example like Category:Coats of arms by pixel size‎ and then Category:Coats of arms up to 500 pixels in length, Category:Coats of arms up to 250 pixels in length. (Also for me personally are 500 px not small.) -- πϵρήλιο 13:00, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
No need to change. That limit might shift over time. Personally I would limit it to a smaller surface (50 K pixel). 500 pixel length is misleading if the height is the critical dimension. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Foroa (talk • contribs) 10 April 2012‎ (UTC)

This category should have a template like {{thumbnail}}, otherwise it is difficult to manage. -- πϵρήλιο 10:32, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

I put really the point of this category in question. Almost all coats of arms of the largest online collection of the world would in here (put in {{ngw2}}). Where is the sense? That although I have set down the size from 500 to 250px. -- ΠЄΡΉΛΙΟ 15:38, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
