Category:Gay actors from the United States[edit]

Category:LGBT actors from the United States is for actors and actresses, Category:Lesbian actresses from the United States is in Category:LGBT actors from the United States and Category:Actresses from the United States, so I put Category:Gay actors from the United States in Category:LGBT actors from the United States and Category:Actors from the United States Cathy Richards (talk) 16:49, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

User rights[edit]

You do a lot of great work here, so I've added the patroller and rollbacker rights to your account in case they come in handy. INeverCry 06:35, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, INeverCry! --Auntof6 (talk) 10:09, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

Category change question[edit]

I notice you did at least one of the moves in a recent change of moving from Category:Jewish history to Category:History of Judaism, so I figure there's a fair chance you'd know what's going on. Seems an odd change to me: the Jews are a people; Judaism is a religion. It's sort of like if "Greek history" were moved to "History of Greek Orthodoxy". - Jmabel ! talk 16:57, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry about that. I didn't realize Jews are treated as a group separate from just belonging to their religion. I thought I'd found some duplicate categories. I think I did a few moves related to that, which I did after finding multiple variations of the history of Jews and/or Judaism in Victoria, BC. I will go back to my edit history and see what I did. Let me make sure I understand what you're saying: "Jewish history" would be history of Jewish people, and "History of Judaism" would be history of the Jewish religion? Have you by any chance changed any of it back, or is it all the way I left it? Do we need to leave the name as "Jewish history", do you think? I wonder if "History of Jewish people" would be clearer. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:53, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
The only thing I've done here is to drop you this note after seeing what I thought was a detrimental change on one of my files. Yes, I think if you can find these and revert it would be a good idea.
We Jews constitute one of the few cases where there is very little vocabulary to distinguish a people and a religion, but there is definitely a distinction. To cite two prominent examples, Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud were both certainly Jews in the ethnic sense, but equally certainly not in the religious sense. Of course, if you go back before the Enlightenment the distinction becomes harder to make, but even in Roman times there were "Hellenizing Jews" such as the historian Josephus who considered themselves part of the Jewish people, and were considered so by other Jews, whether religious or not, but who were not Jews by faith. - Jmabel ! talk 03:08, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Maybe even more to the point: there are many organizations that are Jewish in the ethnic sense, but not necessarily in the religious sense. E.g. YIVO, J Street. - Jmabel ! talk 03:14, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Not that this is uncontroversial. "Two Jews, three opinions." - Jmabel ! talk 03:23, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
OK, I think I changed it all back. Sorry for the trouble. I would try to put something on the categories to explain the difference, but I'm not sure I understand it well enough. --Auntof6 (talk) 05:58, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
