Unfortunate category names ("vagina" vs. "vulva")[edit]

In the correct meanings of these two words, the vagina is rarely externally visible unless the lips are pulled apart. According to the way these words are usually used on Commons, most images in "Category:Human vaginas in art" should actually be in "Category:Human vulvas in art" (this certainly applies to File:Ishtar vase Louvre AO17000-detail.jpg‎ and other images on my watchlist). It's rather unfortunate that you just went ahead without paying proper attention to what these words really mean... AnonMoos (talk) 19:38, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

@AnonMoos: Thank you. I correct the name of the category. Best regards. --DenghiùComm (talk) 19:47, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

@AnonMoos: Post scriptum : I used the cat "Human vaginas in art" because it doesn't exist the cat "Vulvas in art". If you think that it's relevant, please create the new category and move the files in it. Thank you. --DenghiùComm (talk) 19:54, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Antica Roma[edit]

Bad move[edit]

Hello! This move is totally inappropriate. Nobody has ever called him "Charles" - see the talk page there! His legal name is "Carl ..." --SergeWoodzing (talk) 14:16, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

@SergeWoodzing: So why all the other Swedish kings are called Charles? Theyr names were certainly Carl or Karl. I think it is important in the names of the categories to have a consistency in the given names. We cannot have three or four different ways of writing the same name. This is the reason of my rename. But I let a redirect. --DenghiùComm (talk) 15:43, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

We go by what they are known as. For Swedish kings, Charles VII (actually Charles I) to Charles XV: "Charles". Current king, legal name: Carl. We don't start using a name form that never has been used for a person anywhere else. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 23:19, 30 June 2019 (UTC)

Categories by name[edit]

Hello, DenghiùComm. I noticed that you changed some "by name" categories from using the {{Catcat}} template to using the {{Metacat}} template. Many categories with "by name" in their names are not metacats. Many of the ones you changed are not metacats, so I have been changing them back.

The way to tell if one of these categories is a metacat is to look at the subcategories. If the subcategories are for multiple things with the same name, then it is a metacat. An example of this is Category:Hotels by name. One of the subcategories there is Category:Hotels named Majestic, which is for any and all hotels named "Majestic". An example of a "by name" category that is not a metacat is Category:Women of Italy by name, where each subcategory is for one individual woman.

The same thing is true for some other criteria, including by registration, by title, and some others.

I know this can be confusing, but I hope this helps explain it. Please be careful when working with these categories so that we don't tag categories as metacategories when they really aren't. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 10:15, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

@Auntof6: Thanks for your explanations. I knew that categories of categories are "catcat", while all other categories by something are "metacats". Is there in Commons a page where all this is explained and fixed? I never heard such distinctions nor rules. Thank you very much. Best regards, --DenghiùComm (talk) 14:25, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

@Auntof6: please can you answer me? I'm not convinced of what you say. Because if this were so, the 90% of the current metacats would not be metacats. Perhaps it needs a category discussion. Thank you. Best regards. --DenghiùComm (talk) 05:57, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Metacats are explained in two places that I know of. One is at Commons:Naming categories#Categories by CRITERION, where it says "These are special categories which are useful to group other related pages (not media files) according to a given criterion. They hold only other categories and should be marked with {{MetaCat}} template." The other place is the {{MetaCat}} template itself, which says "Use this tag for meta categories only, that should only contain other categories that are grouped by a specified criterion."
The key is the grouping by a criterion. If you look at Category:Buildings by country as an example, each individual subcategory is named "Buildings in <country>" -- each one contains information about buildings that share the same location, namely the indicated country.
If you try to apply that logic to "by name" categories (and a few other "by xxxx" categories such as serial number, registration ID, and maybe others I'm not thinking of right now), you run into a snag. That's because the expression "by name" is used two different ways in Commons categories.
  1. One way is the way it's used with the hotels category I mentioned above: each subcategory is for grouping any and all hotels that share the same name. Here, "by name" is a shortcut way of saying "grouped by name". With this, there is a many-to-one correspondence between hotels and name.
  2. The other way is the way it's commonly used in English speech: referring to something or someone by using their name instead of in some other way. For example, you can refer to Queen Elizabeth by name by calling her "Queen Elizabeth", or you can refer to in a different way by calling her "Queen of the United Kingdom", "Her Majesty", etc. With this, there is a one-to-one correspondence between "person" and "name".
It's only the categories the first group that group multiple things/people with a shared characteristic: those are metacategories, and the others are not. The prefix "meta" implies that there's something more to a metacategory than just having subcategories, and that "something more" is that the subcategories are groupings, not categories for individual things or people. One clue is to look at the things named in the category name. With "Buildings by country," it's easy to understand that one country would have multiple buildings. With "People by name," it's possible that one could apply to multiple people, but if the subcategories aren't grouped that way, then the parent category is not a metacat. The by-name categories I changed back aren't grouped that way, so they should be tagged with {{Catcat}}, not {{Metacat}}.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I wouldn't object to having a wider discussion about this because it comes up every so often and it would be nice to have something somewhere that spells this out. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:32, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Long shot[edit]

Hi, I know this is a long shot, but perhaps you know if you came across this person in your categorisation of the Nadar photographs? It is marked "unknown person" on this photo, but it is likely he's a doctor (the image is from the Wellcome library collection), and there might just me more photos with an ID from the same session. I can't find anything (there are just too many), but if might just ring a bell with you. I hope you can solve this mystery :) Thanks, -- Deadstar (msg) 19:41, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I can not take care of this thing. I have only categorized the files. To identify the people on the photographs is not my work. Greetings --DenghiùComm (talk) 05:42, 21 August 2019 (UTC)
Thank you anyway! -- Deadstar (msg) 09:45, 21 August 2019 (UTC)
