Category:Post-on-sill (poteaux-sur-solle) Construction[edit]

Purely a problem with the category name; we need a category for this topic. First off, "Construction" shouldn't be capitalised. Secondly, the French portion is misspelled and apparently wrongly pluralised; it's fr:Poteau sur sole, not Poteaux-sur-solle. Thirdly, I've never before seen a bilingual category name; either we should go with the English "post-on-sill", or we should decide (like en:wp apparently has) that the French term is common enough in English that we should use it here. Therefore, this should be renamed: either Category:Poteau sur sole construction or Category:Post-on-sill construction. I don't care which way we go, but we need to pick one of them.

Agree. This category should be moved to Category:Poteau sur sole construction, since it is mostly french colonial architecture that uses this construction technique. Fungus Guy (talk) 03:24, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Moved to Category:Poteaux-sur-sol construction as per the enWP category name. --rimshottalk 07:22, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
