Category:Madrasahs by country[edit]

  • As we know, when we chose the name of category, we behave according to the name in English Wikipedia not by my/your/his/her/our/their POV. I believed User:Foroa also always behave so. In this case, en:Madrasas by country, en:Category:Madrasas in Turkey have to be preferred in Commons. Although there is the artile titled en:Madrasah in English Wikipedia, categorization per en:Madrasas by country. The reason why they prefer madrasas for categories, as long as I understand, 'madrasas is more common than madrasahs in English language.
  • Moreover, the same user had removed interwikis of those categories, removed important sub categories such as Category:Islamic schools by country. I couldn't understand his/her harmful actions. I want to think that those his/her harmful actions might be caused only by his/her blind reverts, and might not have any intention to destruct Commons. So I recommend User:Foroa to behave calmly.

As we all know, category names should use consistent naming up to the top parent level. And we certainly don't change naming in the middle of a world wide category tree without any form of discussion, so we have to look at Category:Madrasahs as a whole. The category tree names are all in line with the top level en:Madrasah name (that has never been challenged); this has already be discussed in Commons:Categories for discussion/Current requests/2009/09/Category:Madrassas after a check on reference encycopedias to determine the prevailing word. --Foroa (talk) 09:01, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
