Commons:Threshold of originality and Category:Copyright law[edit]

You recently removed Category:Copyright law from Commons:Threshold of originality. It's been in the page for awhile and at first glance, it seems like the category belongs there. I'm racking my brain trying to think of a reason for its removal but I can't.

You are a lot more active at Commons than I am, so I assume I can learn something from you. What was the reason why this category doesn't belong on this page, and more importantly (if it's not obvious from the first answer) how can I and other editors reading this discussion thread apply that knowledge to other project pages whose categories need removal for similar reasons?

@Davidwr: I had two reasons: Separating actual content from meta content and the fact that all pages in Category:Commons licensing help – which is a mess – are related to copyright law. I might make the latter category a subcategory of Copyright.    FDMS  4    21:11, 4 July 2015 (UTC)


Can you tidy this up a little?

Would suggest a further {{Template:Created}} so that the metadta issue with infosplit can be resolved by it's depreciation. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 10:18, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

JFTR for TPS: I responded on IRC (a long time ago).    FDMS  4    23:01, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
