  • All categories named after a person should be included in the category People by name and sorted by their family name: [[Category:People by name|Family name, first or given name]] (or use {{DEFAULTSORT:}}), and remember: do not tag files with this category!

Untitled comment[edit]

Is there any clear guideline on how to categorise in Wikicommons. It's a mess right now. For example, category:Physicists has a place in both category:People and category:scientists, but category:mathematicians has not. In the People category there is also a place for Conductors, Musicians and Composers, should they not be moved to another category, and have that category in the People category. Wikipedia has such guidelines, should we follow those? --Maarten van Vliet 12:18, 8 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Proposed categories?[edit]

Can we have a category of people not looking at the camera or people with a transparent background? I think those categories would be really useful for grasphic designers, architects etc. Sweetie candykim (talk) 12:11, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
