Thanks for identifing Kiara Diane and Bailey Brooks! Gohe007 (talk) 18:24, 26 November 2010 (UTC)


You put my pictures from Category Morimus to Category Morimus funereus. The problem is, that some authors take it Morimus funereus, others consider it Morimus asper funereus. I did not want to mix in that problem, therefore I did not put it to M. funereus. In the meantime I think, that Morimus asper funereus is more exact, and I put my new pictures there. But it is a mess anyway. --Siga (talk) 18:57, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, i know it's a mess. That's why i've added crosslinks with explanation at both cat. Morimus funereus & Morimus asper to guide users. I think a more specific category is better even if it does not reflect some established consensus because it groups related images together.
I've created the species cat rather than the subspieces so as to be in accordance with the current Wikipedia article. In cases like that, when a category can have multiple designations, it's a good practice to create all the names and choose a base category and then redirect the other names to that one. In this case, i've just created the Morimus asper funereus category which i redirected to Morimus funereus. This way, the cat would be accessible by both names. In case we arrive at a consensus some time later and decide the other name is more appropriate we could just move the cat from one name to the other (but it is not really necessary as both names would be available).
Note that what you have created - Morimus asper funereus, is not an actual category (categories reside in the category namespace where names are prefixed with Category:), it's an ordinary page. That's not a good practice since it doesn't allow the benefits of a category, namely - when tagging images with [[Category:]] they would appear automatically on the category page. And besides, it just duplicates another category; duplication is bad as the two duplicates should be managed separately and can easily go out of sync and become messier. Redirects do not duplicate, they give alternative names. Good luck with the wikijungle and thanks for the beautiful images :) --Exonie (talk) 00:57, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
I'll use redirect from M.funereus and M.asper funereus for this article. Greetings --Siga (talk) 17:10, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
