Edit for categories[edit]

{{editprotected}} Please change this to:

{{#ifeq:{{NAMESPACE}}|Category|{{PAGENAME}}|$1}} - Wikimedia Commons

It might make it easier for users to visualize what is meant at Commons:Village_pump#Categories:_the_primary_way_to_search.2Fnavigate_Commons. If it's a problem we could still revert it later. I tested the markup, it worked. --  Docu  at 18:57, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

I will advertise this requested change on COM:AN and make the change if there are no oppositions in between 7 days. -- RE rillke questions? 11:48, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
Will this have negative implications on search indexers? -- RE rillke questions? 16:47, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
Indexing as such isn't changed (robots.txt etc). In any case, I don't think so. Possibly it will improve things.
Seven days having passed, would you implement it? --  Docu  at 17:02, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) Yes, it may well do, since indexers may use page titles in a number of ways. This request is probably a bad idea, with uncertain consequences, potentially causing confusion, and no obvious benefits. I would straight reject the request (which has no consensus at the VP discussion), except I think I agreed a while back not to handle Docu's edit requests. Rd232 (talk) 17:04, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
I tested it, so we can be sure about its effect. If it's a problem, we can still revert it later. --  Docu  at 17:42, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
And the effect on search engine indexing was what? (Leave aside you've yet to persuade anyone of the advantages of the idea.) Rd232 (talk) 22:41, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
I wonder if you are sticking to what you stated at 17:04. --  Docu  at 06:30, 24 June 2012 (UTC)
I guess this is your typically cryptic way of asking if I'm "handling" your edit request by commenting on it? No, I'm not. The edit request remains live. Rd232 (talk) 14:34, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

I withdraw what I said and let the decision to someone else. Sorry for the confusion, I think I need a break. -- RE rillke questions? 20:50, 25 June 2012 (UTC)

After reading some new contributor's comments, I don't think it's a good idea to add more confusion for them. -- Rillke(q?) 13:53, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
