Commons is not WP.en. See the subcats of this cat: it is written with an uppercase in almost all cats on Commons--consistency first. Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 20:31, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
I'll change the subcats then. --Foroa (talk) 21:27, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
There are many dozens of cats on Commons using this case, but none using the "ancient Greece" case as far as I know. Do you really think it is a mistake and has not been fixed since so many years? Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 07:17, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
Case usage in En:Ancient_Greece and En:Ancient Rome articles is consistent (rather rare on wikipedia), their categories are a complete mixup. We will harmonise, as needed too with the "xxx of ancient Roman". We cannot piling up errors; one day it needs be done, so better sooner than later. --Foroa (talk) 07:32, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

I'm afraid I don't understand the point of this category. What does it mean exactly? Jastrow (Λέγετε) 08:21, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Hello, i agree with Jastrow: all subcategories could be moved into Category:Ancient Greece - for easier wayfinding. I would understand if the parent cat was very full or complex, but with this "category for categories" around, the parent category has nothing in it?

Categories are equivalent to (ridiculously named) Category:Ancient Roman categories and Category:Meta categories by country. Very useful when properly organised such as Category:Categories of Italy (with the exception of Ancient xxx"). --Foroa (talk) 12:16, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
I agree with the need of such meta-cats in the case where the matter is or can be properly organized, like Category:Categories of Italy. But here it appears it is not the case, and the current content of the cat is a mess. I would rather delete it--we'll recreate it one day if needed. Bibi Saint-Pol (sprechen) 12:52, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
