Category:Eating animals[edit]

It is somewhat ambiguous whether 'animals' are the subject or object (they are the subject). Category:Animals eating would be less ambiguous and sounds more natural. This also applies to the subcategories category:eating cats, category:eating dogs, category:eating animals in art. When one sees a name like 'eating cats' it isn't clear that the category isn't actually of people eating cats. Richard001 09:22, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

I noticed this too and agree it would be better changed. --MichaelMaggs 10:25, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I made a comment on the talk page about a year ago now that I look at the date. Is there a bot to help with the recategorizing? I don't really feel like doing this myself... Richard001 10:42, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Completely agree, but as I was in the middle of preparing the move commands for SieBot, I discovered Category:Cat behavior. I think a lot more need to be renamed. We have lots of "<verb> <animal>" that are ambiguous and usually worded the other way, like Category:Hunting cats. [[Category:Eating cats]] sounded kinda, um, interesting before seeing what it actually was. :) Rocket000 (talk) 19:35, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps we should have a naming convention on this sort of thing, but can we just move the 'eating Xs' to 'Xs eating' for now? Richard001 (talk) 08:55, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
OK. I'm doing the eating ones. Rocket000 (talk) 02:27, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Renamed. (Should have close this awhile ago.) Rocket000(talk) 18:04, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
