Dear Liconstan, thank you for your contributions. They have for the most part been very useful. However I'd like to point out that the categorisation system we use here at WM Commons is not a tag system but a hierarchial category tree system. This is to keep higher level, more general categories from being overcrowded with tons and tons of heterogenic material. The most important thing to keep in mind is to not add any categories that are (or should be) supercategories to others for the same picture/category. For an example, one of your edits:

The image previously had Category:Gestation crates after which you added the following:

  1. Category: Factory farming
  2. Category: Pigs
  3. Category: Farms
  4. Category: Agriculture
  5. Category: Agribusiness
  6. Category: Agriculture with animals
  7. Category: Livestock
  8. Category: Domesticated animals
  9. Category: Agriculture by type
  10. Category: Veterinary science
  11. category: Veterinary medicine
  12. Category: Animal welfare
  13. Category: Human use of animals

I removed all of these, with the following logic:

  • Domesticated animals, Livestock, Pigs, Agriculture with animals, Agriculture, Human use of animals -- Gestation crates is exclusive to pig farming, which is subcat to Pigs, which is subcat to Livestock etc. Pig farming is also subcat to agriculture with animals, which is a subcat to agriculture and human use of animals.
  • Agriculture by type -- this is a metacat, i.e. is only supposed to hold other categories and no files. A sow in a gestation crate is not a type of agriculture, but a feature of factory farming, which in turn is a type of agriculture.
  • Agribusiness, factory farming -- agribusiness is concerned with the business of food production. Gestation crate is a method of pig farming and not directly related to food production on a business level. It is also a subcat to factory farming, itself a subcat to agribusiness.
  • Farms -- a gestation crate is not a farm
  • Animal welfare -- gestation crates is already a subcat of controversial animal use, which is subcat to animal welfare
  • Veterinary science -- I don't even understand why this was added
  • Veterinary medicine -- very flimsy connection -- gestation crates may be unhealthy to sows, but that is not grounds to categorise it.

I hope this helps to grasp the logic behind our categorising system :) --Pitke (talk) 06:50, 15 October 2013 (UTC)
