Psalms[edit]

As I noted in the move summaries, the template atop each category reminds us to categorise by the number in the Masoretic Text, not by the number in the Septuagint. Additionally, per COM:CAT, "Category names should generally be in English", and the exceptions are for "some proper names, biological taxa and names for which the non-English name is most commonly used in the English language (or there is no evidence of usage of an English-language version)." Aside from the rare situation in which the topic is generally referred to with both names (e.g. Category:Bath (Berkeley Springs), West Virginia), having multiple names for the same topic in its category name is unhelpful: nobody says "We're going to look at Psalm 24 aka 25", because they always say "24" or "25".

You’re obviously wrong, User:Nyttend, but whatever: I’m not going to risk another block for ruffling admins’ feathers. If you actually care about categorizing Psalms (which you don’t[you] as I did[me]), then you’ll eventually see that I’m right and will undo the reverting of my renamings; if you’re not — then mission accomplished: You cowed me away from working on categorization of Psalms. (Hey, I’m an atheist, anyway, so why would I care about King David’s lyrics after all, amirite?) -- Tuválkin 13:47, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Category:African motormen[edit]

Going to just leave this here: I don’t have (yet?) a clear idea of what to do about this and such cases:

Hi, Tuvalkin. What do you think, is the file in scope? If not, please nominate for deletion. If in scope, please categorize it. Taivo (talk) 10:33, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

It’s rubbish; thanks for the heads-up. -- Tuválkin 19:33, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Horizontal parallel icons naming issue[edit]

Can we settle the issue with exvKRZq and uvKRZq already? You can make your argument or point out any wrongful assumptions on anyone's part at this page if you still want to maintain your stance.   ~ Newfitz Yo! 07:53, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

I will express my continuing disagreement there as soon as possible. -- Tuválkin 11:49, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
