Duplicate category[edit]

Hello, can you help me with Category:Budapesti Ferences Mária Missziós nővérek temploma and Category:Franciscan Missionaries of Mary, Budapest categories. I think these are duplicate cats. I think one is good, but Hungarian, other name is not really pass to the article. Sincerely, - - Globetrotter19 (talk) 21:24, 29 January 2020 (UTC)

Interesting. I've never heard of it before, but judging from en:Franciscan Missionaries of Mary is the proper name of the order. What about Category:Franciscan Missionaries of Mary church, Budapest ? - Themightyquill (talk) 21:32, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
OK for me. - - Globetrotter19 (talk) 09:27, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

Category:Signs of motorways in Hungary and Category:Motorway signs in Hungary[edit]

Hello, can You help me. Duplicate (or Not?) - - Globetrotter19 (talk) 15:43, 5 February 2020 (UTC)

Yes, surely duplicate. The only other "country" category in Category:Signs of motorways is Category:Motorway signs in New Zealand (which is also in Category:Motorway signs by country. I'll move it. - Themightyquill (talk) 08:15, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

Closing CFD[edit]

If you close CFD and mention it in corresponding talk page, then the policy (Commons:Categories_for_discussion#Closing_a_discussion) says that proper is to use construction "{{Archive box|*[[Commons:Categories for discussion...". If done so, less info pollution in talk pages. One example: Category talk:Mísia (Portuguese singer)--Estopedist1 (talk) 07:32, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

@Estopedist1: Firstly, that page is not marked as official policy. Second, I did that for many years, but I noticed that others weren't. I don't see "pollution" in talk pages as a problem, since they are almost entirely unused. By contrast, linking to an archive makes the discussion less visible. But maybe I should propose a change on that page. - Themightyquill (talk) 09:06, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
@Joshbaumgartner: also. The caption of CFD says "This discussion of one or several categories is now closed. Please do not make any edits to this archive." In Wikimedia projects, archived texts are usually not visible, but are moved to the archive box ({{Archive box}})--Estopedist1 (talk) 09:16, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
@Estopedist1: I don't use the {{Archive box}} since it seems kind of an extra step that is not needed. Category talk pages are almost always empty or minimally used at most, so having and archive of them seems a step too much to me. I simply directly link the discussion on the talk page so it is immediately there to see for anyone clicking on the discussion tab. I figure the spirit of step 5 at Commons:Categories_for_discussion#Closing_a_discussion is really just to make sure any visitor to that category can quickly see that there was once a CfD held on it and have a way to find that CfD to avoid having to repeat old discussions over and over, and that is satisfied by simply adding the discussion to the talk page itself. If that is a problem, then I'm happy to discuss a better process. Josh (talk) 19:11, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
Are you arguing for wikimedia-wide consistency over local functionality? - Themightyquill (talk) 09:21, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
no, every Wikimedia project has its features. But see, eg this one Category talk:2 groups. I think better is with {{Archive box}}--Estopedist1 (talk) 18:58, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
@Estopedist1: I think that one is a good example, but exactly why I do not use the archive box process, because doing so would mean you would only have an archive box and would have to click there on two separate links to read the two relevant discussions, versus just including them directly as I did in order that the user can see both immediately without having to dig any further.

For delete[edit]

Hi Themightyquill. Please see Category:20th century paintings and photos of buildings in Spain and Category:Other speedy deletions, thanks, --JMCC1 (talk) 02:18, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

QuickCfdClose Gadget[edit]

I've found closing CfDs to be a bit of an arduous multi-step process, so I started a gadget for streamlining the process. Since you participate in CfD frequently, I thought this might be helpful to you. Currently it only handles the closing of the discussion page itself, but when I have time I will expand it to some of the other repetitive tasks like removing the notification templates from the affected categories. See User:BMacZero/QuickCfdClose. – BMacZero (🗩) 20:39, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

@BMacZero: Nice! Thank you! - Themightyquill (talk) 12:30, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

Am I pinging you?[edit]

I am responding to a lot of CfDs today and that means mentioning your name often in ways that probably don't require your attention. Am I pinging you when I do this? The documentation for {{U}} doesn't say. Very sorry if so. – BMacZero (🗩) 04:39, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

@BMacZero: Yes, using {{U}} does ping me, but I'm actually quite happy to be pinged. I try to watch discussions I participate in, but I don't always remember. - Themightyquill (talk) 09:07, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
That's good to know, thanks. – BMacZero (🗩) 16:39, 29 March 2020 (UTC)


Hi! I notice you are fixing categories related to Ireland. That's great!

I created many of those years ago because of Commons:Batch uploading/Geograph. I'm not 100 % sure but I think the reason I created them as Ireland is because they had images from both The Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland‎. (Some images could not be categorized by bot.)

I have no strong feelings about the categories. They could either be kept as a meta category with subcategories or they could be deleted once all the photos in them and split them up in one of the sub categories of Ireland.

I noticed that there are some categories like Category:Geography of Ireland by county so if anyone want meta categories I think they should be made like that instead.

Not sure if this post is of any use to you but now you know why they were created :-) --MGA73 (talk) 07:34, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

@MGA73: Thanks so much for your message! It's actually very good to know how they originated. I had never heard of Geograph before now. As per the discussion at Commons:Categories for discussion/2018/08/Category:Ireland, I think it makes to keep the general "in Ireland" category for some things, particularly culture, history and landforms that span both countries, but for things like buildings that are concretely in one country or the other, it makes sense to divide them. But using metacategories like Category:Geography of Ireland by county makes sense as well. Thanks again! - Themightyquill (talk) 08:35, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
I took a break so I never noticed the discussion you mention. I agree with you that we should put as much as possible in the two subcategories and only use "in Ireland" in a few cases. And happy the info was useful. --MGA73 (talk) 13:22, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

Vorschlagsseite wieder entfernen[edit]

Hallo Themightyquill, kannst Du die von mir vorgeschlagen zwei Seiten wieder zurücksetzten. Hat sich mittlerweile wieder geklärt:

In einer Diskussion hast Du dich beteiligt. Danke. --Riquix (talk) 09:54, 8 April 2020 (UTC)


Thanks for letting me know that there was a template for that! Felt rather stupid to put it up for discussion when I had misspelled it :) -Yupik (talk) 10:41, 18 April 2020 (UTC)

@Yupik: No reason to feel stupid. The system is far from ideal, so there's no way for you to know the template exists unless someone tells you, or you happen to stumble upon it, and even then, you have to actually remember what it's called the next time you make a typo. =) - Themightyquill (talk) 13:43, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
The way I type, I should just paste it on my user page :D -Yupik (talk) 15:25, 18 April 2020 (UTC)


Brianjd (talk) 12:00, 21 June 2020 (UTC)


You were in a 2018 discussion over a particular category viability (seemingly unresolved), here. You therefore might be able to help me.

There are quite a number of files that show a recognized phenomenon, covered by a Wikipedia page that seems to apply to a cat that appears not to exist (I may have missed it of course), e.g: this. I suggest such files could be under something like 'Mirroring (behaviour)' or 'Mirroring (posture)'. Human (or animal) mirroring (gesture or sound), usually unconscious (sometimes conscious), is a social device providing a positive or negative bond between two or more people. This appears allied to 'Mimicry' and 'Mirroring'. Mirroring seems contentious, as has been pointed out. Mimicry doesn't entirely fit as the object is not to pretend to be something else. 'Imitation' doesn't quite fit either as this can be done by one entity or can mean something pretending to be something else, i.e. a fake. It might fit under the cat trees of 'Imitation', 'Reflections', 'Social psychology' and/or 'Gestures' or any of their sub cats, although none of these seem to quite fit comfortably. Do you have any ideas on the viability of such a cat and what name and which tree it might fall under? Acabashi (talk) 09:44, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Need help to Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary by city and Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary by town[edit]

I ask your help. I nomineted for deletion Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary in Pécs because none of the content files passed to the category. The category creator started to crop some files for his right! Even so the files 90 percent not fit to there! This user also created 75 different categories Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary by town most of it only with one or two pics or example Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary in Kisvárda (37 files) my opinion none of them is a 'flag photo'! And it is same generally all of the Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary by city (16 categories!) there is example Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary in Miskolc with 176 files and only circa 3 of them real 'flag photo'. It is not vandalism? My opinion all subcat of Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary under county level means town(s), city(s), district(s) circa 100 categories should be delete! I think if 90-95 percent of these photos unrelated to the category the answer 'I will crop for to fit',-like here,-is not the good solution! BTW: In France this user create same situation see discuss here. What can I do? I should the 'fit photos' (1-2% of all) moving the cats to county level category and others removing? Nominate the over 100 categories for delete or? I'd like to know your opinion. Sincerely, - - Globetrotter19 (talk) 17:00, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Even warnings this user keep categorizing to the unrelated files to Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary, example here, here. - - Globetrotter19 (talk) 09:26, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
@Globetrotter19: You just have to wait until the CFD is complete. That's what the process is for. - Themightyquill (talk) 18:21, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
I just wanted to let you know. Until the CFD is complete, more and more incorrect categorizations to occur! Plus this user put a Prospective category template to Category:Photographs of flags of Hungary by district and my guess it is similar like Category:Photographs_of_flags_of_France_by_canton deleted by JuTa. - - Globetrotter19 (talk) 19:32, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
