Category:Frank Lloyd Wright buildings[edit]

Should be named Category:Buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright, like all in Category:Buildings by architect. --TomAlt (talk) 09:20, 7 November 2008 (UTC) ✓ Done --Foroa (talk) 18:01, 11 November 2008 (UTC)


Renamed, for consistency. --rimshottalk 19:23, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Naval ships of the United States[edit]

We have a Category:United States Navy ships and a Category:Naval ships of the United States. Either there is a distinction that should be clarified, or these should be merged (and I don't know which name is to be favored). -- Jmabel ! talk 06:14, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

  • Naval ships of foo seems to fit the standard naming convention. Keep the other as a redirect. -Nard the Bard 06:34, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
    • naval ships of xxx is the Commons naming convention. --Foroa (talk) 17:47, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
      • So can we just turn Category:United States Navy ships into a {{seecat}} and have a bot move the images and any subcategories? - Jmabel ! talk 06:28, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
      • I put a merge request on it (A move would work too). Redirects/seecats are only for empty categories (If all people started to move categories through redirects, it would be nice here). --Foroa (talk) 07:46, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Category:State highways in Massachusetts[edit]

Close to correct. These categories that go via Route X (Massachusetts) need to taken to Massachusetts Route x (like the 6A one). I am willing to move the images out of the categories for the new ones, but wanna make sure that it is all consistent. --Mitch32(Want help? See here!) 23:05, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

There's no need to manually move categories around. If you prepare a set of category moves of the form {{move cat|old name|new name}} (just put them down here), I can tell User:CommonsDelinker to do them. While you're at it, if you have the time, you can look for other highway categories needing renaming as well. --rimshottalk 11:21, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Category:Inauguration of Vladimir Putin[edit]

The category is empty and it not needed due to categorisation by dates --russavia (talk) 23:29, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

This can go, not really necessary, scope-wise anyway.Mitch32(Want help? See here!) 16:05, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Category:Vladimir Putin in Minsk[edit]

Category is empty. We now have Category:Vladimir Putin in Belarus which is probably a better way of categorising such images, i.e. on a national level rather than on a city level. --russavia (talk) 23:32, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Same here, this came go, need we go so deep?Mitch32(Want help? See here!) 16:05, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Category:São Domingos de Gusmão (Olivença)[edit]

  • Again a disputed Spanish/portuguees territory under Spanish administration. Ideal solution is an English name (that I could not find). Alternative: keep the Spanish version and a redirect from the Portuguese name. --Foroa (talk) 17:34, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Kept/not renamed/closing thread: apparently it wasn't made up. Redirecting suggested new name instead. -- User:Docu at 04:56, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Category:Ponte da Ajuda[edit]

É falso. O nome dado a esta ponte por quem a construiu, D. Manuel I, rei de Portugal, é "Ponte da Ajuda" (http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ponte_da_Ajuda) e não "Puente de Ayuda", que será apenas o nome traduzido para castelhano. Por isso, a categoria não deve ser apagada.

This is false. The original name of this bridge is in fact "Ponte da Ajuda" , given by King Manuel I of Portugal. "Puente de Ayuda" is just a spanish translation. Therefore, this category should not be deleted.

Symbol keep vote.svg Keep This bridges seems to be disputed territory on the border of Spain and Portugal. Best solution is a neutral English name (and Spanish and Portuguese redirects to it), but I could not find such a name. --Foroa (talk) 17:26, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The bridge is in the "disputed" border between Spain and Portugal. The literal translation is "Help Bridge", but I can suppose that there is no tradition on a English name. --Ecemaml talk to me/habla conmigo 14:39, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
