How does one "Pass the request to SieBot"?

Who, why, where?

NRHP category moving

What would be the appropriate process to convert all the NRHP categories (and subcategories) starting with Registered Historic Places in to National Register of Historic Places in ? It would be to match the new category structure on the English Wikipedia. Thanks. --Ebyabe (talk) 17:44, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Category:City gates in France

Please, after the content of Category:City gates in France has been moved to Category:City gates in France by department, "remake" the Category:City gates in France with content Category:City gates by country, Category:Gates in France, and Category:City walls in France. --Havang(nl) (talk) 11:37, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Category:Kempinski Hotel Ishtar - Dead Sea - Jordan

It does not make any sense to change the category, because this category is based on the specific name of the hotel Category:Kempinski Hotel Ishtar - Dead Sea - Jordan you could see the name on the upper left corner of the page and this is the link provided. The whole category is categorized under Category:Kempinski Hotels. --Producer (talk) 18

Please feel free to move the bellow listed categories to the correct name. I didn't tag them all, because I think it is too much work and I couldn't found a How to page.

Category:Sinimäed Waffen-SS monument

Please rename: Category:Sinimäed Waffen-SS monument to Category:Sinimäed monument or Category:Battle of Tannenberg Line monument. The current category labels with "Waffen-SS" all living people on the images + the monument, that's not a "Waffen-SS" monument but a monument for the W:Battle of Tannenberg Line.--Termer (talk) 03:44, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

As all potential controversial rename requests, it will be executed after a couple of weeks depending on the outcome of the potential discussions. Personally, I see no reason to object the rename. --Foroa (talk) 05:49, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
I have no objection against the proposed renaming. It's better we err somewhat on the safe side. --Túrelio (talk) 06:13, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
RE:Foroa I don't see how the rename request is "potentially controversial". What's controversial about it is the current name. And until it's not changed, the living people on the images have been labeled with "SS" by that category on Commons.--Termer (talk) 13:15, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Category:BWM police automobiles

Could you please move Category:KISS (band) over its redirect Category:Kiss (band)? The corresponding articles are w:Kiss (band) and w:Category:Kiss (band), it's not an acronym (same as Category:Time Magazine here, for instance). Thanks. 06:51, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Category:Remotely Operated Vehicle to Category:Remotely Operated Vehicles

  • Reason: Plural --Stunteltje (talk) 21:01, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
    • In the meantime Foroa moved it to Category:Remotely operated vehicles. This fixes caps as well. -- User:Docu at 06:22, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
      • We have Category:Unmanned vessels, Category:Remotely operated ships and Category:Submersibles. Is it a good suggestion to category redirect of the Category:Remotely operated ships to Category:Unmanned vessels and make Category:Submersibles a sub-category of Category:Unmanned vessels too?--Stunteltje (talk) 07:45, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
        • Kind of complicated with the unmanned, remotely operated, remote controlled, military vehicles, robots, ... Maybe trying first to get them all a bit connected, but my impression is that unmanned is the top level, making remotely operatorated a bit overlapping/redundant. --Foroa (talk) 10:22, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
        • Personally, I don't mind. In the bulky Navy upload from last month, there are quite a few images that could be added. Maybe this clears it up. -- User:Docu at 11:12, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Why is it necessary to have a link to the same page just after to sentences? --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 11:15, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

The renaming, discussion, and deletion of categories is covered by these 3 pages:
I agree that there is unnecessary duplication. But the other editors may have their own reasons, and I decided to wait before deleting some of the similar links. --Timeshifter (talk) 12:31, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
I replaced Category:Requested moves with Category:Non-media deletion requests. Hope you don't mind. -- User:Docu at 12:56, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
OK. Sounds good. I think I see what you are trying to do. I consolidated the "see also" links to just 2:
--Timeshifter (talk) 13:10, 5 January 2010 (UTC)


I would like to make this cat and non-media deletion req. a subcat of cat cfd. I think that would be a usefull structure since all categories related to category maintenance would be in one tree. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 12:08, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

That might work. Another possibility might be putting them all as subcategories of a new category called Category:Category maintenance. --Timeshifter (talk) 12:44, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
I like that last idea. As CfD is a parallel process, I'd rather not see Requested moves as a subcategory of CfD.
I'm not too convinced about including "Non-media deletion requests" there, as these are mainly requests to remove entire categories of files and a few that missed the right channel. -- User:Docu at 12:56, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Creation of a new category for two or three subcategories is not good. --Cwbm (commons) (talk) 13:02, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

The Commons is not Wikipedia. There are many categories on the Commons with only 2 or 3 subcategories. Cwbm, you wrote: "a useful structure since all categories related to category maintenance would be in one tree."
I agree with you, Cwbm, that Category:Non-media deletion requests belongs in such a category. Because Category:Deletion requests is not as specific. Category:Non-media deletion requests specifically includes categories. Category:Deletion requests is 2 steps away.
I agree with Docu that CfD is a parallel process to Requested moves. So it makes more sense in my opinion that they belong in the same category. --Timeshifter (talk) 13:28, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Move, restore old and recat new category

I made a move request as follows It has been proposed to move Category:Houses in Pyrénées-Atlantiques to {: Category:Houses in the Northern Basque Country]]. Reason: All items at this moment are in the Northern basque Country, after moving, the old cat should be restored and the new cat become a subcat of the old one. I don't know how is the exact procedure for this, can some-one execute this? --Havang(nl) (talk) 20:19, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Category:Fasilides castle

A more natural name for this complex is "Fasil Ghebbi", which is also the name of the articles in numerous Wikipedia of these buildings. I have left a tag on this category, & am looking for input. -- llywrch (talk) 07:47, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Category:Accomodation in Iceland

It has been proposed to move Category:Accomodation in Iceland to Category:Accommodation in Iceland (the correct spelling of accommodation) since May. There appear to be no objections and, due to the uncontroversial reason, there aren't likely to be any. Could an admin take a look please? --JD554 (talk) 08:39, 9 August 2010 (UTC)


I think it would be clearer if we move this category itself to Category:Requested category moves (and of course it's subcats as well). Rocket000 (talk) 14:59, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Category:Córdoba and Category:Province of Córdoba

Category:Louisiana State University Tigers football and Category:University of Southern California Trojans football

Category:Louisiana State University Tigers football should be moved to Category:LSU Tigers football, and its subcategory Category:Louisiana State University Tigers football players to Category:LSU Tigers football players. The common practice for college sports team is to use the "<common shorthand for school name> <nickname> <sports>" format. The only objections received at the category talk page was whether the subcategory should be named "Players of...", and seems not relevant to the request at hand. The new category would match the article name on English Wikipedia, en:LSU Tigers football.

And likewise for Category:University of Southern California Trojans football and Category:University of Southern California Trojans football players, which should be Category:Southern California Trojans football and Category:Southern California Trojans football players, respectively. --Ytoyoda (talk) 04:34, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Please provide interwikis. Commons naming convention is "players of xxx". --Foroa (talk) 06:48, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
You have yet to address Category:Louisiana State University Tigers football and Category:University of Southern California Trojans football, which was the main point of the request. Though looking at EnWiki, based on en:USC Trojans football, all Southern California sports team cats should be moved to USC Trojans <sports name> (en:LSU Tigers football is still correct). And the corresponding EnWiki cat for the players are en:Category:LSU Tigers football players and en:Category:USC Trojans football players. If your issue is Players of xxx" vs "XXX players", then a more relevant discussion would be over all the subcats at Category:College American football players, not these four categories. --Ytoyoda (talk) 14:02, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
I have no time for a full reply, but at Commons, our thinking and naming conventions start in Category:Football players as you can see for example here. --Foroa (talk) 14:35, 17 November 2010 (UTC)
This is very frustrating because you continue to ignore the crux of the request, or acknowledge the two categories that have absolutely nothing to do with your objection. I'm not asking for a correctly name category to be changed to an incorrect name. I'm simply requesting that these four categories be renamed to be consistent with every other category that covers the same subject. --Ytoyoda (talk) 14:50, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

(Reset indent) Sorry, but I reacted indeed in the first place on the players name construction. I made some additional checking.

  • Concerning {{move cat|Louisiana State University Tigers football|LSU Tigers football}}: although we avoid acronyms on Commons, it is in line with en:LSU Tigers football, so that is acceptable (while it has the word University in its name).
  • Concerning {{move cat|University of Southern California Trojans football|Southern California Trojans football}}, this is yet another name than the one used on en::USC Trojans football. Although I understand your logic, which is different from the case above, it makes no sense to follow your logic until your logic is implemented on en:wikipedia. --Foroa (talk) 07:06, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
    • Right - Which is why I mentioned that in my second comment. Ytoyoda (talk) 19:02, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Il existait (en fr:héraldique napoléonienne) 3 catégories de Chevaliers de l'Empire :

  • Les chevaliers légionnaires (qui avait la Légion d'honneur : leur signe distinctif était une croix de LH d'argent stylisée sur pièce honorable de gueules) ;
  • Les chevaliers non-légionnaires (qui n'avait pas la Légion d'honneur : leur signe distinctif était un annelet d'argent sur pièce honorable de gueules) ;
  • Les chevaliers de l'Ordre de la Réunion (qui avait l'Ordre de la Réunion : leur signe distinctif était une étoile de l'Ordre de la Réunion d'or stylisée sur pièce honorable d'azur).

Par conséquent, il faut (d'après moi) 3 catégories :
