Cat removals[edit]

Hi, I haven't understood this edit done on multiple files? I'd expect rather a replacement than just a removal if you believe that the cat was not correct. Best, Poco2 19:16, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi @Poco a poco: The images are already in Category:Atacama Large Millimeter Array, and Category:Radio telescopes is a parent category for that one (via Category:Radio interferometers). I would have done a replacement with the ALMA category were they not already in that category. :-) Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 19:18, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
Ok, understood, but I believe that the mother category is not correct. ALMA is the term for the whole site: buildings, transportation systems, antennas...so we'd need something like Antennas of the ALMA. I believe. Poco2 19:25, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
That's true - the distinction usually used there is 'observatory' vs. 'telescope'. How does Category:Atacama Large Millimeter Array telescopes sound to you? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 19:27, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
@Poco a poco: I've now created that category (we can move it to a different name later if needed), and started populating it. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 06:31, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for getting it done, Mike. It looks good! :) Poco2 07:35, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

"St Thomas' Church, Guildford"[edit]

I am trying to categorise File:St. Thomas, Church of England, Guildford.jpg, which you donated a few years ago. I have failed to find a St Thomas' church in Guildford, in either the Church of England or any other denomination. Please may I have either a street address, postcode or other means of location for this building so that I can check it on the National Heritage List for England? Thanks, Motacilla (talk) 18:19, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi @Motacilla: thanks for the message. Looking back at this, it looks like it's actually en:St Nicolas' Church, Guildford. I'm not sure where the 'Thomas' came from - sorry for the error. I've now moved the photo to File:St. Nicolas, Church of England, Guildford.jpg. Thanks for catching the misnaming! Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 18:28, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks: I suspected something of the sort, but didn't know in which category to look! I've now recategorised the file in Category:St Nicholas' Church, Guildford. Best wishes, Motacilla (talk) 18:40, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! I've added that category to the Wikidata entry for the church (d:Q7594966) so that the interwikis/project links work. Thanks again for catching the mistake! Mike Peel (talk) 18:44, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
