Kremlin Towers[edit]

Category:Spasskay Tower[edit]

Wrong spelling. The correct spelling is Spasskaya Tower. See en:Kremlin_towers#Spasskaya. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 06:52, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

There's no need for discussion, is it? --Ikar.us (talk) 16:12, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Category:Nikolskay Tower[edit]

The same.

I place rename requests for both on User talk:CommonsDelinker/commands. --Ikar.us (talk) 16:30, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Category:Diagrams,_charts,_graphs_by_theme plus four related empty categories[edit]

Please delete, the discussion here has ended, so its time to act! --WikipediaMaster (talk) 15:50, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

This deletion request includes also the following four categories that have been cleared!

Also related and marked for deletion: Template:Diagrams charts graphs

--WikipediaMaster (talk) 15:55, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

  • Delete categories, keep template. The template is strictly for the easy listing of diagram categories needing to be cleaned out of charts and graphs. The template is currently only on talk pages, and saves me time in duplicating and updating the info on several talk pages. If the template is deleted then I will just have to manually copy and maintain the list on several talk pages. Deletion of the template will only increase the time required. It is much easier to delete cleaned-out categories (and their subcategories) from one template, rather than several talk pages. I can recreate the template in user space if it is a problem in its current location. --Timeshifter (talk) 23:39, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Category:Banknotes by country[edit]

There is now two different kind of categories in this category: Banknotes of country and Bills of country, but I think that this two should unify into one. I'm not sure which is preferable. --moralist (talk) 10:14, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Bills and Bills by country have been merged here. Banknotes is the remaining category, category:Bills is far too ambiguous. --Foroa (talk) 10:22, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Okey, so the "Bills of country" should be moved to "Banknotes of country"? //moralist (talk) 10:31, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
I'll try to organise a move of all these bills by the end of the week. --Foroa (talk) 11:02, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! It shouldn't be too hard, pywikipedia-bots can move entire categories. //moralist (talk) 11:06, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Category:Science and technology by country[edit]

The subcategories in this category should have similar names. I propose a move from Science in blablabla to Science and technology in blablabla --moralist (talk) 11:52, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

In theory, science and technology are two separate and distinct things. In practise, they are often inseparable, especially at the research, institutes, government and education level. So fully agree to harmonise in one single merged "science and technology" category. --Foroa (talk) 14:15, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Merge would be good. Any reason this one hasn't been done? - Jmabel ! talk 02:36, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Merged and harmonised

Category:Architectural elements by period[edit]

Delete this category + all of the subcategories. Useless category tree --Multichill (talk) 13:43, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

That seems a lot of overhead to categorise one singe image: Image:Lucignano san francesco.JPG. The question is if it is realistic to be so precise in dates. --Foroa (talk) 14:24, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

O crap, dozens of similair categories were created see Commons:Village pump#categorization madness?. Multichill (talk) 14:42, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
I have created a new category with a better lemma: Architectural elements by century and have emptied this category which is already covered by Category:Architectural elements by style so we can garbage it. --Kurpfalzbilder.de (talk) 23:16, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Deleted, as empty and obsoleted by the other two categories.--rimshottalk 10:50, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Category:Visit Nice[edit]

I completely fail to see how this would be distinct from Category:Nice. --Jmabel ! talk 23:51, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Agreed, also there is a lot of gif and animated gif... Why ? - Zil (d) 19:46, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
It seems that User:Agora1950 started creating a kind of illustrated streetmap of Nice, and this category contains all the "accessories" for this webpage, content images as well as information icons.
The icons should be removed, the photographs moved to Category:Nice, or distributed to more specific categories.
--Ikar.us (talk) 10:17, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
I agree to empty this category and then to delete it. I have started to categorize the images by Streets of Nice and, when there are significant buildings, by individual categories for the buildings. P.s.: The category Palais de Nice schould be also checked
--Ceterum censeo capitalismum esse delendum (talk) 22:17, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
I see two possibilities:
  • Move the images to the Nice category, but before that, uncategorize the image that would not fit in the same category.
  • Do the first option, but also create an user category for the user who uploaded the image, this might be not necessary since the user already created a gallery.
Edit, user is inactive since september 2008, let's do the first options...
Esby (talk) 20:23, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
Meanwhile I've almost emptied this category by moving most of the images (more tnan 2.000) to Streets, Buildings etc in Nice. This was hard work — but now I hope it's comprehensive to find anything in Nice starting with the main category --Ceterum censeo capitalismum esse delendum (talk) 23:34, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Good work here, what to do of the last files? Esby (talk) 07:29, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
  • I say just put 'em in Category:Nice (and maybe other categories as well, no opinion on that). - Jmabel ! talk 02:39, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Category:Architectural plans[edit]

Category:Architectural plans and Category:Floor plans. Whatever is the better name, we should combine these cats. TomAlt (talk) 11:35, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

No objection. "Architectural plans" is slightly more general, because it would include landscape architecture where there is no floor, and would also include the "reverse plan" for a ceiling. - Jmabel ! talk 23:56, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Good, we could first create architectural plans. Regards.--Mac (talk) 10:25, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
Stop, stop. Now we have an unclear situaton: Category:Architectural plans and Category:Architectural drawings doubel up as "Topcats". I think that should be clearer and suggest:
*Category:Architectural drawings as Topcat that contains all kind of Drawings as now,
*Category:Floor plans as subcat
* As it doubles IMHO up with Architectural drawings we should delete Category:Architectural plans and move all entries over to Category:Architectural drawings. The term "Architectural drawings" allows to separate "by type" that means if its a section, elevation of floor plan. "Architectural plans" does not really allow this and is simply blurry because of the term "plan".
TomAlt (talk) 22:13, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
oK, after I cleaned up a bit I am confirmed in my conclusion: Category:Architectural plans should be deleted / redirected, because many people mix the term "plan" (in the sense of a layouted sheet with several drawings) up with "floor plans". As this will happen again all the time I suggest we move all "Sheets" into a new Category:Architectural drawing sheets and redirect there. TomAlt (talk) 22:11, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
In the English Wikipedia we just merged the w:Architectural plan (just created by me) into the w:Architectural drawing article, because the term "Architectural plan" didn't seem to have one particular meaning.
So I think it is a good idea to remove this category here. I am not so sure about a new category named "Architectural drawing sheets". Ideally categories should relate to real types of architectural drawings: Types that could have a Wikipedia article. Now it seems to me, at first sight, that several of the images categorized in that new category could be categorized in other existing categories just as well. -- Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 23:48, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
That's true, some could also be sorted in the object cats like "Church drawings" or "Opera drawings" etc. But for the type, an arranged / layouted plan or sheet there has to be a separate cat. I'm open for suggestions for a better name. TomAlt (talk) 13:22, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Category:Trash containers[edit]

Please have a look at the subcategories with all the different names:

  • Trash bins
  • Garbage bins
  • Waste baskets

Most of them should be merged. We need a clear structure and a "naming convention".

A differentiation by type of waste and type and size of container would be helpfull:

trash / waste / garbage ... cans / bins:

Recycling bins / containers:

type / size of container:

Category:House of the bakers (Pompeii)[edit]

  • Merge to Category:Bakeries in Pompeii (I am creating that soon...) or rename to Category:Bakery of Modestus (Pompeii). The current name is misleading as there appears to be dozens of bakeries in Pompeii. From image searches and cross-references to maps and aerial views, this appears to be the Bakery of Modestus in Regio VII, Insula 2, but I'm not positive on that. Unless someone can say for sure, we should avoid potentially misleading users and simply say these are images of an arbitrary bakery (or bakeries - I can't even tell if the one image is the same bakery as the other two images). —Wknight94 (talk) 04:38, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
