Category:Locomotives by gauge[edit]

Hello and welcome to Commons.

I would like to point out that here at Commons we have a two system for renaming categories –

  1. tag the category with the {{Move}} template, and wait two weeks if there are no objections, or
  2. add it to the list under discussion at Commons:Categories for discussion

The unilateral ‘create, move, and leave empty’ approach that you are using just leads to utter chaos; so you will have to forgive me if I undo your changes to the Category:Locomotives by gauge tree.

Regards, Iain Bell (talk) 13:13, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

I did not want to MOVE categories, but I fixed the ambiguity and created subcategories. Sorry for emptying, will undo. HSRtrack (talk) 16:54, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Comments by Andy Dingley[edit]

  • Why are you renaming all gauge categories in metric form, even such imperial WP:COMMONNAME forms as Brunel's broad gauge?
Why are you replacing all previous texts with the unusual phrase "track gauge" in all instances?
Are you yet another sock puppet of Tobias Conrad? Your behaviour over this issue, and both of those specific points above, is very similar. Andy Dingley (talk) 00:46, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

And the metric have been there already, see 750 mm. And what is up with Tobias Conradi??? All points you make are very weird. HSRtrack (talk) 01:00, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Thankyou for correcting my mis-spelling of his name "Conradi" as "Conrad". So, just how familiar with him are you?
As for categories "in metric form":

Commons-emblem-issue.svg Category:260_mm_track_gauge has been listed at Commons:Categories for discussion so that the community can discuss ways in which it should be changed. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this category, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for discussion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it. If the category is up for deletion because it has been superseded, consider the notion that although the category may be deleted, your hard work (which we all greatly appreciate) lives on in the new category.

In all cases, please do not take the category discussion personally. It is never intended as such. Thank you!
