Category:Historical reenactments[edit]

Category existed for 5 minutes …    FDMS  4    15:50, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

yes, & then i redirected it to category:Reenactments, when i found that category existed.
where i come from the term "historical reenactments" is by far more common for this activity, not to mention it's less ambiguous; the wording should exist (at least) as a redirect, so people using hotcat (as i was, at the time) or searching can find the correct category.
with all due respect, i'm not clear what the point of this discussion is? does the user want the category re-established (i.e.: as a subcat of reenactments)?

You created it as a subcategory first, so I thought it might be unnecessary and can be deleted. Now I understand the purpose of it, sorry for the inconvenience.    FDMS  4    23:36, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Category:St Giles, Sidbury[edit]

This category is redundant. Sidbury's parish church is St Giles & St Peter. I have recategorised all files accordingly. I suggest this redundant category be deleted. Motacilla (talk) 19:51, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Redundant yes, but not unused, so a category redirect would be better. I have fixed one link on the English language wikipedia that was broken by this deletion request but which would not have been broken by a category redirect. I don't know if there are others. WereSpielChequers (talk) 20:00, 11 June 2014 (UTC)
I'd also support a category redirect instead of deletion. While the full dedication is St Giles and St Peter, the church is commonly referred to as St Giles (as shown, for example, on the Sid Valley Mission Community website), so a redirect would reduce the likelihood of a second category being accidentally recreated at Category:St Giles, Sidbury by editors who hadn't found Category:St Giles' & St Peter's Church, Sidbury.

Harmonizing Categories for Pentax lenses[edit]

The naming scheme of the sub-cats of Category:Pentax lenses is not very consistent at the moment. Currently, we have:

and in the "taken with" sub-cat:

I'd like to harmonize this, but since there are multiple options I thought it could be a good idea to ask for other opinions first. ATM, we only have categories for en:K-mount lenses, so I'll disregard all the lenses for M42, 645, Q-mount etc. for the moment. The Takumars are also a different story with a different subcat, so I'd like to leave them for later. So here are some options:

The most simple way to deal with this would probably be to follow the scheme the name is printed on the lenses:

  • [coating] PENTAX-[series] [1:maximum aperture (range)] [focal length (range)mm] [other stuff]
  • Example: SMC PENTAX-DA 1:3.5-5.6 18-55mm AL WR for the current kit lens
    • coating = SMC for most, HD for the very recent ones (missing for some very old Takumars)
    • series = DA, FA, D FA, etc. → see en:Pentax_lenses#Lens_designations
    • other stuff may or may not include important information (eg.: is it a WR = weather resistant version or one of the higher quality "Limiteds")

However, this is not how they are usually referred to: In the "official" naming scheme, aperture and focal length are swapped:

  • [coating] PENTAX-[series] [focal length (range)mm] [1:maximum aperture (range)] [other stuff]
  • Example: SMC PENTAX-DA 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 AL WR for the current kit lens

This makes a lot of sense, since the focal length is far more important when looking for a lens and it makes sorting much easier. This scheme is used by Ricoh/Pentax in the EXIF data, on their website, in the user manuals provided with the lenses and on the boxes the lenses come in. It is also used in the relevant Wikipedia articles, in the very comprehensive lens database at pentaxforums, at dpreview and basically every place else I've visited so far. Also note that, apart from Ricoh/Pentax, everyone seems to write Pentax instead of PENTAX.

Any thoughts on this? --El Grafo (talk) 17:14, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

OK, let's make this a bit more simple: I propose to use the official naming scheme without the all-caps "PENTAX", just like it's done over at en.wp (and basically anywhere else): SMC Pentax-DA 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 AL WR. If there are no objections within the next couple of days, I'll take that as a yes and go ahead moving the categories. I had some concerns about "Pentax" not being the first word anymore, but I looking at Category:Nikon lenses that doesn't seem to be a problem … --El Grafo (talk) 16:55, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
>14 days gone, no objections, seems uncontroversial, so I'm gonna go ahead … --El Grafo (talk) 17:49, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Category:Non-Roman Catholic churches in Mexico[edit]

There are cats for specific denominations, we don't need one for "other" denominations. Besides that, this cat contains only one cat, which itself is empty. Auntof6 (talk) 05:26, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

This is because 99% of the churches in Mexico are Roman Catholic. Its considered to be so unless specified.Thelmadatter (talk) 13:46, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
Even so, we categorize things by what they are, not what they aren't. The non-Roman Catholic ones belong under Category:Churches in Mexico. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:33, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Category:People of Bromley[edit]

We could redirect this to the London borough category, but I think it's better to delete it because it's ambiguous. Auntof6 (talk) 07:13, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Category:C-130 Hercules in service by country[edit]

This category doesn't know what it wants to be. Is it a "by country" category, or the military equivalent of "by airline"? Note that some of the entries are countries, but others are services, including four entries for the United States. However there are quite a few things you could do with it, and I'm not sure which is best. A few of the most obvious:

  • C-130 Hercules by operator, or perhaps C-130 Hercules by service, where each entry is the organisation that's operating the aricraft (a generalisation of airline), such as "C-130 Hercules of the United States Marine Corps".
  • C-130 Hercules by country of service, where each entry is like "C-130 Hercules in the service of the United States" and the different branches of its military can be subcategories. These categories elsewhere (like Category:Humvees by country of service usually prefer entries liike "Humvees in Afghan service‎", but I think using the unmodified country name is preferable. Alternatively, "C-130 Hercules in service with the United States".
  • C-130 Hercules by country, where each entry is like "C-130 Hercules of the United States". (For the United States there is additional confusion about whether the aircraft are in the service of the US Air Force or with their state Air National Guards.) --ghouston (talk) 02:20, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
  • It occurs to me now that the first option is the best. Otherwise you end up with a lot of pointless categories like "C-130 Hercules of Brazil" that just contain "C-130 Hercules (Air force of Brazil)". Category:Categories by organization (flat list) shows that there are plenty of precedents for a "by operator" category, and "by organization" would work too. The US state national guards can be placed in a subcategory if they are likely to overwhelm this one. --ghouston (talk) 23:47, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

I'll rename it to Category:C-130 Hercules by operator. --ghouston (talk) 08:58, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
