Hidden categories[edit]

If you and Cryptic-waveform don't want people like me to "overcat", then please unhide Category:Images from the National Archives and Records Administration because the 466,944 images in it show up in Category:Media needing categories requiring human attention. This would be appreciated by "humans" like me who are wasting our time trying to reduce this enormous backlog. Thanks, Krok6kola (talk) 00:41, 4 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Discussed at your talk page. But we don't reduce a backlog by simply hiding it, from doing something that's generally useless but that just happens to make the tag go away.

141 and 181[edit]

I am trying to add simpler categories for them to match the rest. 11:53, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please stop. Yet again, like the GCR/LNER locos and the NER/LNER electrics you're causing chaos. Andy Dingley (talk) 11:54, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That is Britain. And I am sorry about the 201/104 but I am talking about 141 and 11:55, 14 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Whether it's Britain or not doesn't make any difference. Although you seem unconcerned about the difference between North and South.
These are EMD locos of a defined type. We should preserve their listing in the EMD supercat, in a clear fashion. Now adding the CIÉ class is a good thing, because that's a recognisable name of them too. But we shouldn't do that at the cost of the other, and there's absolutely no need to.

Over de template ANEFO photographer location|Loek Tangel|Tangel, Loek|Beek|Limburg|197|1|....[edit]

Beste Andy, Ik zag dat je Category:Photographs by Loek Tangel in Beek (1971) had veranderd. De oorzaak van de problemen ligt in de template. Zou jij het voor elkaar kunnen krijgen om Category:1971 in Limburg leeg te krijgen? Ik probeerde deze categorieën te verplaatsen naar Category:1971 in Limburg (Netherlands), maar dat lukte niet vanwege de template (templates zijn geweldige tools, behalve als ze je tegenwerken, zoals hier). Heb jij misschien meer verstand van templates dan ik?
(Ik dacht dat ik ergens had gezien dat je Nederlands spreekt, dus ik waag het er maar op. Antwoord anders in het Engels.) JopkeB (talk) 12:38, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
