Category:Barges on the Weser River[edit]

I started this category yesterday. Today I saw there was Category:Barges on the river Weser. I thought Category:Barges by river consistently favored the wording I chose -- but it is actually inconsistent. I am not wedded to the wording I chose. Mainly I'd like other's opinions on whether consistency was important. Cheers! Geo Swan (talk) 14:17, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support Your category naming was correct. If the parent category is Category:Weser River, all subcats should then refer to the "Weser River". Wow - that whole category tree is a mess. We need to pick one name and stick to it, and avoid colloquialisms ("Islands in the Weser‎") as well as category names that are not proper English/are unclear as to what the subject is ("Maps of Weser‎"). Problems such as this usually arise when categories are created using English words but using the word order of a foreign language. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 20:29, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
