Why Герб Башкирской АССР в 1925-1978 гг.???? If it didn't happen Валко (talk) 13:45, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi Валко, we do not delete file redirects even if their name is wrong per COM:FR#Leaving redirects. The reason behind that is that we want to avoid the rotting of links which are necessary for re-users to refer to the original file and its license.

Commons:Criteria for speedy deletion Валко (talk) 13:56, 13 May 2020 (UTC)
None of the criterias for speedy deletions applies to this case. This redirect will not be deleted per cited policy. --AFBorchert (talk) 13:59, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

G1. Test page, accidental creation, or page containing nonsense or no valid content Page contains redundant content that was previously used for testing, or was accidentally created, or contains content that is gibberish or of nothing meaningful. This may also include text placed in talk pages (which has no further history) that doesn't help or refer to the related page. G2. Unused and implausible, or broken redirect Page is an unused and implausible redirect, or a redirect that is dependent on deleted or non-existent content. Unused talkpage redirects created as a result of a page move and cross-namespace redirects may also be deleted under this criterion.

Герб Башкирской АССР в 1925-1978 There was none Валко (talk) 14:13, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

None of this applies but COM:FR#Leaving redirects does as explained. --AFBorchert (talk) 15:17, 13 May 2020 (UTC)

Grand Canyon[edit]

I have just recently returned to editing on Wikipedia. I did Grand Canyon categories years ago (~10). When I knew little.

User Paul H. Cleaned up my work on geology. I now am using my IPhone for edits. And it is quick.

I only made Category. Angels Gate in the last week. I now understand what I can do on MY PHONE. And what is available by searching.

So Thanks for your cleanup. ( From hot desert Arizona usa )McAnnis59 (talk) 02:49, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi McAnnis59, thank you for going through the categories for Grand Canyon pictures. Perhaps the gadgets HotCat and Cat-a-lot could be helpful for you. They also avoid the accidental addition of a category which is already included. I enjoyed very much the stay in Arizona in 2006. Greetings from Germany which was quite cool and rainy in the last week, AFBorchert (talk) 21:10, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. I have never tried the HotCat type tools. Of note. When there are a lot of categories, I simply re-use one or more. (Previously listed above)

In trying to understand. For example a CANYON, I group maybe 3 prominences together (for example East-side vs West-side). Today I created category:Phantom Canyon, but I have been working towards it——- for some days. It still took HOURS, to finalize, And understand what I didn’t know 8 (eight) years ago. (( Haunted Canyon, is the major sub-Canyon (Bordered by !! Category:The Colonnade), with a great Photo—- from North Rim, Tiyo Point. )).

Thanks for the response, Sir. From Arizona’s hot desert. (Smile)—McAnnis59 (talk) 22:25, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
