Category talk:Free software by name
- Oppose By default all categories are by name, so the "by name" suffix is even more redundant than the "by alphabet" suffix. "Free software list" would be less redundant and confusing. --Foroa (talk) 07:34, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
- By default all categories are "by alphabet". Generally, categories which are sorted directly by name (without internal structuralization) are named "by name" (Rivers by name, Streets by name...). Only several categories deviate from this standard and should be unified to prevalent standard. The suffix "by alphabet" is suitably used in cases of Category:Inscriptions by alphabet and Category:Letters by alphabet. Single sorting by name shouldn't be confussed with categorization by used alphabet.
- "Free software list" is confusing: "list" is generally named the page with a text list, not a dynamic filled category. Btw, every category is "list", independently of sorting criterion. --ŠJů (talk) 07:43, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
