Cut from cat page[edit]

This was repeated twice, and seems unwarranted
The categories are strange and not consistent. I found double entries and missing ones. This scheme is taken from the German wikipedia where it worked well for all space craft and missions

... so I cut it into here where it belongs. // 24.61.229.179 18:59, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

Proposed internal realignments[edit]

The following was temporarily removed in the Commons Delinker, so we can realign it here first. I hope you agree that these changes to correct the structure are sensible:


Rename Category:People in space travel to Category:People associated with space exploration (22 entries moved, 0 to go)

Above: Fix to align with the two parent categories, "People by association" and "Space exploration".


Rename Category:Crew portraits in space travel to Category:Crew portraits in space exploration (7 entries moved, 0 to go)

Above: Fix to align with the parent category "Space exploration" (after above change the cat to "People associated with space exploration).


Rename Category:Non government agency spaceflight to Category:Non-government agency space exploration (8 entries moved, 0 to go)

Above: Align to parent cat "Space exploration".


Rename Category:Functionaries in space travel to Category:Officials in space exploration (17 entries moved, 0 to go)

Above: Fix to align with the two parent categories, "Officials" and "Space exploration" (after above change the cat to "People associated with space exploration).

In my opinion all requested moves are okay. I merged the two top-categories Space exploration and Space travel a time ago as they were overlapping and redundand. So it's only consequent to rename those categories now. --myself488 (talk) 16:06, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

I have done a lot of changes since (less about renaming, but adding a lot of categories and moving them around) so the scheme here needs more work to be brought up to date. However, I will work a littlemore on the cats in the coming days and weeks and then we can update this, unless somebody wants to start now. Ingolfson (talk) 05:29, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

No problem, the category scheme being ouf of date isn't something urgend (or unusual). Just for intrest: You write on your user page that you are an aircraft pilot. What kind of planes are you flying? --myself488 (talk) 19:03, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Gliders, but that has been a long time now since my last solo. Should really go back, but hard to do so, atm. Ingolfson (talk) 20:17, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Hey, me too. But I haven't had my solo flight yet, hope to do it early this summer. --myself488 (talk) 20:36, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
