One standard here[edit]

This category Category:Computer Aided Design (CAD) has the same name as Category:CAD, only written differently. Shouldn't we just merge the two.

Now I noticed this category name is in the line of

But on the other hand there is still

Shouldn't we get one standard here?

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Good initiative. Abbevriations should not be used as category names as they mean different things in different languages, why CIM and CAE have been renamed. I'd suggest to put a {{move|Per Commons naming conventions}} request on it. --Foroa (talk) 19:31, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, for your support. But I am not sure yet. That is why, I now ask first. I guess my proposal would be:

  1. Merge the Category:CAD in the Category:Computer Aided Design (CAD)
  2. And rename the following three cats
    1. Category:CAAD to Category:Computer Aided Architectural Design (CAAD)
    2. Category:CAM to Category:Computer Aided Machining (CAM)
    3. Category:CNC to Computer Numerical Control (CNC)

Now I noticed some more categories, and this won't be the last.

So what should we do here? -- Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 22:44, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Merge the Category:CAD in the Category:Computer Aided Design (CAD)[edit]

My first proposal is to merge the Category:CAD in the Category:Computer Aided Design (CAD) because, it seems, both have the same name and subject. -- Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 22:44, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Right. I am not sure about cats like Category:CAAD drawings as there is little chance that they will conflict with other acronyms. I think that its better to change 2D CAD into 2D Computer Aided Design to remain coherent. QCAD should become QCAD (program) I guess. --Foroa (talk) 23:03, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
I also agree, thats in general why I created the Category:Computer Aided Design (CAD). --WikipediaMaster (talk) 17:54, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
