This category "Geography of Amsterdam" is redundant and overbodig.

All its present and former geographical sub-categories are now under Category:Amsterdam

All its present and former thematical sub-categories are now both under Category:Amsterdam and under their respective thematical category for the province (NH) and/or the country (NL).

This super/sub-category "Geography of Amsterdam" should be deleted. Paulbe (talk) 23:17, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm only reading this now. My mistake. I don't see why this category is redundant. I saw you earlier sorted all subcategories in this category under Category:Amsterdam, so that they are all over the place (Amsterdam-Centrum under C, Amsterdam-Zuidoost under Z). In my opinion, Category:Amsterdam should contain as little subcategories as possible, so you keep a clear overview. This category therefore is far from redundant.

Oc, if you feel strongly about this and/or this is general policy. Maybe i was bit too fanatic in my efforts to make the category hierarchy clearer and less inconsistent.
But then also the text that i added on the category page itself should be deleted.
(The text was: "This category is redundant and overbodig. All its sub-categories are now under Category:Amsterdam This super/sub-category should be deleted.")
So i will delete that text now to avoid confusion.

Vincent, you did not react to my main point: what to do with the thematical sub-categories of a geographical nature? That is:

  • Maps of Amsterdam and
  • Canals, Parks, Rivers, Roads, Squares, Streets, Villages and Water in Amsterdam.

If Category:Amsterdam should contain as little subcategories as possible, many of them should only be under Geography. I can see strong reasons for having maps, parks, roads, villages and water under the main category, but not for the other sub-categories. Paulbe (talk) 17:09, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

ok, Thanks for your understanding. I'm trying to follow you, but what exactly is the reason for for having maps, parks, roads, villages and water directly under the main category and not under Geography? Regards, Vincent Steenberg (talk) 18:32, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
