What is going on?[edit]

Multichill is preparing a batch upload (Commons:Batch uploading/Geograph)

We need to tell the bot which categories should go where on commons. So the task is to translate categories from

The first one is the name on www.geograph.org.uk so do not change what is in the first 'xxx' brlow - only fix the second one. Please use '_' instead of blanks.

You can also check at Commons:Batch_uploading/Geograph/matches

Minor fixes[edit]

Mostly just because of redirects:


INSERT INTO categories VALUES('Traffic_island', 'Traffic_islands');    is probably ok - our cat is just rather empty...
INSERT INTO categories VALUES('Combe_or_coomb', 'Cirques');              ????????????????

Minor problems[edit]

  1. Combe_or_coomb -> Category:Cirques is wrong, better Category:Valleys of England. The majority of images in this class are of combes of Southern England as in Dorset Devon and Wiltshire. Southern England never suffered glaciation, a few images are of combes in the Lake District (Northern England) which are glacial and are what I would call a corrie or cwm (which we do classify as a cirque) both are interpretations of the Celtic root 'cwm'- meaning valley.
  2. Clough,_cleuch_or_cleugh -> Category:Streams is wrong, better Category:Valleys of England.It is a Northern English word- the clough is the valley and usually the stream in the bottom is a brook or can be unnamed, so the name of the valley appears on the maps Boggart Hole Clough is one I know.
  3. Long_Distance_Footpath -> Category:Roads surely Category:Hiking or Category:Trails
  4. Loch -> Category:Bodies_of_water and Lough -> Category:Lakes are different. This and Lough Foyle is a bay on the Atlantic safer to use Category:Bodies_of_water
  5. Mansion -> Category:Mansions & # Mansions -> Category:Historic_houses inconsistent
  6. Peat_hagg -> Category:Peat- probably better in Category:Moorlands
  7. Railway_(narrow_gauge) -> Category:Miniature_rail_transport is wrong, better Category:Narrow gauge railways. Miniatures are a subcat of Narrow gauge , usually toys. Most narrow gauge railways are industrial in origin.
  8. Sandbanks -> Category:Beaches but there is a Category:Sandbanks
I have scanned all the cats at 23:00 Sun 13- and these are all the difficulties I have found- the rest look clean. I have reported them them here for a decision.
