Meall a' Chaorainn and so on[edit]

Thank you for fixing the mess I made of this category - I was planning to come back make it a disambig page after I realized it could refer to more than one place. (Which is, as I have learned, more often than not the case with Gaelic toponyms, being often transparently descriptive).

Honestly I got confused after looked at Category:Croick again... one is in in Strath Halladale, and the other is less than a mile from the River Alladale which confused me for a second. It wasn't my intention to step on anyone's toes, and I hope I didn't mess anything up. It's clear I'm quite out of my depth, also having not the Gaelic (or any local knowledge for that matter).

Thank you! –⁠moogsi (talk) 19:29, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

No problem, I usually have a look at the files on a map to decide which is which, and use Scottish Places to work out what the subcategory should be. Unfortunately, that site doesn't have entries for all possibilities, but it at least gives an indication of how much disambiguation is needed. Cheers.

Please include at least two parent categories when creating categories.[edit]


I came across Category:Round hay bales in the United States and found it and all its child categories detached from the category it sub specifies, e.g. "Category:Round hay bales in the United States" didn't have a related "something something United States" category. In your recent edit history I found Category:Computer scientists from England and found it detached from England as well. Please add at least two parent categories to a new category. There are exceptions to this but those are rare. --Vera (talk) 12:19, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
