catdiffuse editwar[edit]

Why are you removing {{catdiffuse}} from this category, Cwbm? --Timeshifter (talk) 13:09, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

Because 36 files are no reason to add the template. The category is perfectly okay and does not need any maintenance. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 14:57, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
I edited map categories on the Commons for almost 2 years before you registered at the Commons. Nearly all of these maps need to be put in subcategories. Also, see the W!B edits in the category history. W!B added {{catdiffuse}} also.
Also, changing the comments of others is not normally allowed. That can get you blocked. See en:WP:TALK. Please do not change my comments.
When you first reverted 2 different editors of this category as you did here [1] and here [2] it would have been helpful to explain the reverts in the "Edit summary". This way people can see why they are being reverted. Otherwise it can seem rude, especially when repeated. See also: en:Wikipedia:Civility and en:Wikipedia:BOLD, revert, discuss cycle. "Discuss" is the key part. Wikipedia and the Commons work through collaboration and giving each other some space. It is also about getting people to help by respectfully asking them to help.

W!B added the template two years ago so that does not matter anymore today. Even if "all of these maps need to be put in subcategories" with which I disagree (at this point in time) was true there is no reason to add a template. The template is only to be added if the category is overcrowded. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 08:55, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

2 people disagree with you. W!B added the {{catdiffuse}} template in February 2009. See [3]. You should pay more attention. --Timeshifter (talk) 15:08, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

W!B added the template ten months ago so that does not matter anymore today. Even if "all of these maps need to be put in subcategories" with which I disagree (at this point in time) was true there is no reason to add a template. The template is only to be added if the category is overcrowded. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 16:23, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

See my previous replies such as "Nearly all of these maps need to be put in subcategories." --Timeshifter (talk) 14:05, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
Look at my arguments and reply please. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 18:41, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
I already replied to all your arguments. Also, this statement of yours is incorrect: "The category is perfectly okay and does not need any maintenance." --Timeshifter (talk) 20:42, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

The category does not need maintenance. And even if it needed there is no reason to add the template. It is like adding a stub category just because you think the article should contain another paragraph. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 06:34, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

If you don't want to maintain the category better, that is your choice. The maps should be in subcategories. So the template is useful in getting collaboration. --Timeshifter (talk) 18:46, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
The one who obviously does not want to maintain the category is you, because you claim need for maintenance but does not exercise it. Adding the template to categories where it is not necessary distracts the attention from the other categories and that is what you do. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 10:16, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
Denying that there is a need for maintenance in this category is your point of view. An incorrect one. We can't categorize the millions of images on the commons between the two of us. It is all about collaboration, and getting others to help. Your talk page seems to indicate that you have problems with collaboration, and cooperating with others. There are many categories that need maintenance. We can't do it all. The template helps facilitate collaboration, and getting others to help. --Timeshifter (talk) 16:33, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
