Category:Movaghar (family name)[edit]

User:Fatoolysh, we do not have categories for "family names" "here, but for "surnames" and we do not make the peculiar categorization to surnames like you did here. Please give yourself some time to learn how things are done here and how the interaction with Wikidata works, in order to make it possible for other volunteers not to lose time for correcting your mistakes.I could have corrected all this without bringing anything to this platform, but my experience in Commons tells me sometimes it is better to take things to public. Please have a look at other (more experienced) users how they do things before creating more work for others. Thanks. E4024 (talk) 02:39, 5 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

    • Maybe it is due to my average level French but I understand you are not even interested in our categorization system and only want your files to be kept. Be sure that if any files of yours stay here, you will have to categorize them according to our conventions. I will make sure that it happens so. Merci. E4024 (talk) 21:28, 6 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Category:Sandra Reehs[edit]

Do we need a category for this "amateur pornographic actress"? Firstly I thought "amateur porn" was out of scope. If the photographs of the genitalia of this lady are so special we already have many specific cats for reproductive organs, we can keep them in those cats. It seems quite strange to me to make a special cat full of a certain person's intimate body parts. Is it strange only to me? You, others, find it normal practice? E4024 (talk) 03:43, 18 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

While there is very certainly no need for further photos of sexual organs, I personally intuitively associate this amateur porn actress category with one for a hypothetical aspiring musician: Not yet notable, but might be in the future. Whether that means "keep" or "delete" is beyond my knowledge. Kind regards, Grueslayer (talk) 05:46, 18 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Category:Settlements in Indonesia[edit]

Category:Settlements in Indonesia is poorly connected to the category tree and it is redundant with Category:Populated places in Indonesia. Redirect accordingly. Themightyquill (talk) 15:15, 28 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Can someone please explain the difference between a settlement and a populated place? As not native English speaker, I understood, "populated place" could be part of a settlement, like a quarter for example? --JPF (talk) 17:24, 28 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
There is no functional difference. Commons uses the term "populated place" for any past or present human settlement, from a metropolis to a village to a ghost town. Something like Category:City quarters currently fits under Category:City subdivisions. Whether a populated place can contain another populated is debateable though. - Themightyquill (talk) 11:38, 30 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I have no problems about a redirect. As I remember, I created this category, similar to other categories in this time. --JPF (talk) 18:06, 30 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I would like to see any reliable source for the proposed English translation of names of this regiments. If they are "handmade", it would be a classic POV. Thats the reason that original names should be kept.Dreamcatcher25 (talk) 11:19, 19 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

So fools wrote and edited here? --Микола Василечко (talk) 11:33, 19 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
It has nothing to do with fools. The above example concerns wikipedia in English. And those who speak English can write what they want in English ... because it is a project in English. Commons, on the other hand, is a multilingual project. That’s clear ... right? 77.1.198.197 22:21, 19 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

These are historical, traditional and Polish regiments with their original proper names. Here are a few examples of how this works in German (Category:Cavalry of Prussia, Category:Artillery of Prussia, Category:Infantry of Prussia), French (Category:Infantry units and formations of the French Army), Swedish (Category:Infantry regiments of Sweden), Italian (Category:Infantry regiments of Italy) and Polish (Category:Infantry of Poland). Then you will find that nobody came up with the idea to rename it. I then inform you that commons is a multi-lingual project in which all languages ​​are allowed. That's how it should be. Tolerance for all traditions and properties that should not be translated into foreign languages. 77.1.198.197 22:45, 19 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Regarding the respect for historical names - I absolutely agree with the statements presented above.

From myself I can add that the old traditional names when translated into English can change the meaning and disinform the reader. A hundred years ago, everyone knew that the name "1 Pułk Ułanów Krechowieckich" is related to the regiment's tradition and does not mean that this regiment was stationed in Krechowce; just like the name "14 Pułk Ułanów Jazłowieckich" does not mean that this regiment was stationed in Jazlowiec. However, for the contemporary reader, the names “1st Krechowce Uhlan Regiment” and “14th Jazlowiec Uhlan Regiment” can mean just that.Elżbieta Kossecka (talk) 21:38, 27 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Category:NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament[edit]

The title should be Category:NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament, as this is the proper hierarchy for NCAA sports. There is no such thing as "Men's Division I" in the NCAA; there is Division I, which includes a competition class called "men's basketball". You can see this hierarchy on NCAA's website, where "Division I" appears in small text above the page title "Men's Basketball". Other sources also tend to use this word order as well; compare Google ncaa division i men's basketball tournament to Google ncaa men's division i basketball tournament. Reliable national-level sources tend to use "Division I Men's Basketball", whereas "Men's Division I Basketball" tends to only be used by fan pages or occasionally small local news outlets. I'd also like to propose all of these related moves:

The 1968/69/71 moves might need further explanation: In 1973 and earlier, "Division I" was known as "University Division". Additionally, the word "Men's" was not typically used in the name prior to the first women's tournament in 1982. These names match the article titles on English Wikipedia (see en:Category:NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament). –IagoQnsi (talk) 19:37, 7 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Category:Colorized by Julius Jääskeläinen[edit]

I found some good old colorized photos att Flickr with the license CC BY so I used Flickr2Commons for uploading them. I now see that some of them can be in copyright or that the history of origin is not declared. I think there can be some problems here. How can this be solved in the best way? VisbyStar (talk) 17:25, 1 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

You would need to find the original for each photo and verify that (&document) that it is also freely licensed. Many of the photos from World War II, for example, were created by US military staff. Those are Public Domain per Template:PD-USGov-Military.

I am slightly annoyed at the person creating these colorization for not attributing the sources. For PD work, that may not be required. But I would consider it common curtesy, and it would also help in this matter. This is aggravated by their insistence to claim copyright for themselves, and, in some cases, even affix their watermark. That's somewhat bold, considering the original photographers liberated Auschwitz, but it's Photoshop Julius claiming credit now. So you might want to at least give equal credit to the original creator. The colorization also isn't neccessarily the most important aspect of these photos. The descriptions, for example, should for the most part be the same as they would be for the b/w original, with colorization maybe included in parenthesis.

Once you have found the original and verified that it's freely usable, you may want to upload those as well. --Matthias Winkelmann (talk) 03:14, 17 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This is outside the scope of a CfD, but a colorized image is a derivative work and as such copyright is held by the author of the derivative (the 'colorizer'). However, copyright to the original remains intact as well, and as such both the original work as well as the colorized work would need valid license or public domain status to be used on Commons.

Fine, but no one is suggesting moving everything in Category:Political posters into Category:Propaganda posters. All propaganda (by any modern defintition) is political, so any propaganda posters are political posters. Propaganda might be used objectively in some cases, but is also has a subjective (and negative) connotation that might also be applied. We don't have a category for Category:Propaganda, just Category:Government propaganda and not all propaganda posters are created by the government. I think a merge to Category:Political posters makes good sense. - Themightyquill (talk) 08:12, 23 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Oppose. All categories with propaganda in the name are government propaganda only. This has worked well in preventing the spamming of propaganda categories with every imaginable opinion from all political organizations. Many people think opposing viewpoints are propaganda. So let's keep this category of government propaganda posters. And some government propaganda posters are health related: Category:Health propaganda. Other non-political propaganda categories can be found as some of the sub-categories in here: Category:Government propaganda by topic. --Timeshifter (talk) 12:05, 31 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@Themightyquill: I was thinking the same thing. All categories with propaganda in the name should be changed to "government propaganda" in the name.

Category:НАУКА ВОКРУГ[edit]

Category:African-American cemeteries[edit]

It is the only African American category on the Commons that has a hyphen in it so for the sake of consistency, I suggest the hyphen be removed.
For example, the following categories have no hyphens: Category:African American history, Category:African American businesses‎, Category:Sites in the United States connected to African American history‎, Category:Historic racist caricatures of African Americans‎, Category:Gladstone Collection of African American Photographs‎, and Category:NARA images of African American history‎. I have been told that removing the hyphen is controversial and needs to be discussed for at least two weeks. Thanks, Krok6kola (talk) 16:11, 23 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
It's definitely not the only one. Category:African-American theatre, Category:African-American music, as the first examples I saw. Yes, we have Category:African American history but it links to en:Category:African-American history and en:African-American history. Category:African American businesses links to en:African-American businesses. Category:Historic racist caricatures of African Americans‎ shouldn't be hyphenated because it isn't a compound adjective. I believe the other two categories are examples of source-specific fonds titles, and probably shouldn't be changed for any reason. - Themightyquill (talk) 19:24, 26 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I just noticed today the category: African American history and honestly I don't understand why a hyphen wasn't used in it, as well as in several other similar categories where African American is used as a compound adjective. This is an established standard, followed also by the English Wikipedia. I volunteer to do it here on Commons too, if there is interest. —capmo (talk) 16:43, 28 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Capmo: Who has established the standard? See AP tackles language about race in this year’s style guide Columbia Jounalism Review. I thought Wikipedia followed the AP style guide. Look under Category:African American culture, Category:African Americans, Category: African Americans by occupation for just a few.

There appears at this point to be consensus to leave this as it is.

Category:Metro Manila Skyway State 3 Project Section 1 (Quirino Avenue, Malate-San Andres, Manila section)[edit]

Redundant (and invalid) category. Files that were included in this category are now moved to Category:Construction of Skyway Stage 3 - President Sergio Osmeña, Sr. Highway segment. Invalid because the category name doesn't truly depict the files properly: none of the photos depict Skyway Stage 3 segment along Quirino Avenue, but rather depict the segment at Osmeña Highway, south of the avenue.

Category:Sculptures[edit]

Agreed as well. Sculptures or parts of sculptures that are properly classified as structures are a subset of all sculpture, so they can be so categorized in a sub and that subcat cat be under sculptures, but the main sculptures category should not be. Josh (talk) 20:14, 2 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Category:Traditional clothes by country[edit]

Some of the subcats are about "Traditional clothes (by country)", some are about "Traditional costumes (by country)", and some are "Traditional clothing ( by country)"; hence we have to simplify and harmonize those cats and reduce the number of varieties. E4024 (talk) 00:31, 26 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Not to freighten anybody, but, of course, when we can overcome the above then we will have to harmonize the outcome also with "Category:National costumes of (put country name here). The problem about having so many different namings is that one or the other country appears not to have any traditional clothing or a national costume etc... --E4024 (talk) 00:37, 26 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
This problems exists largely because Commons:Categories for discussion/2015/05/Category:National costumes by country is unresolved, or at least, incompletely closed, which is partly my fault. - Themightyquill (talk) 19:18, 26 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]


So there are four different terms for traditional/folk costumes, all about the same subject:

  1. Category:Traditional clothing, whith subcategories by country starting with Traditional clothing as well as Traditional clothes and Traditional costumes. Sub-subcategories also start with Dress and fashion.
  2. Category:National costumes, with subcategories by country starting with National costumes as well as Folk national costumes.

There are even countries with subcategories in both parent categories, at least for the Netherlands (Category:Traditional clothes of the Netherlands and Category:National costumes of the Netherlands). This is a problem, at least for me. So for me it is clear that these two parent categories should be merged into one category.
There are two decisions to make:

  1. What name should the parent category have? We have to choose between 1 and 2, or invent another term for the parent category.
  2. Should all the subcategories start with the same term?

@1.: What should be the name of the parent category:

  • First part: Traditional, national or another term? I prefer the term Folk, with Traditional as second best. These are more neutral terms and apply to all kind of groups: national, ethnic/cultural groups within and across national borders (like the Sami in northern Europe), regional, provincial, of a big city or a small village. A National costume rarely applies to a nation/country as a whole. Drop the nationalisme. I prefer Folk above Traditional because, as Dinkytown wrote: "Traditional dress" refers to something that is fixed in time, which culture and clothing is not.
  • Second part: clothing, clothes, costumes or dresses? Clothing and clothes are broader terms and more clear, at least to a not-native English speaker like myself. So I would prefer Folk clothing, but: "folk clothing" is not used in the specialist literature (citation of PKM). PKM also writes: "In the museum and art-historical worlds, "costume" and "dress" are both preferred terms." And since in EN-Wikipedia Folk costume is the preferred term, I would vote for Category:Folk costumes.

@2.: Should all the subcategories start with the same term? Ideally yes. But then there are a lot of categories to be renamed. Perhaps we should be practical and only merge the subcategories for countries in both current parent categories (like the Netherlands).
JopkeB (talk) 07:15, 19 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

As mentioned at Commons:Categories for discussion/2015/05/Category:National costumes by country and en:Folk costume, neither "folk" nor "costume" are appreciated when discussing traditional Indigenous regalia in North America. I could be wrong, but my impression is that those terms are very European-focused terms. Nation/national can also be confusing, because it may refer to a country or a people. Traditional clothing is accurate, broader/more inclusive, and unambiguous. - Themightyquill (talk) 07:38, 8 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
In neither of the two discussions I found that "folk" is an incorrect word. Can you point that out to me?
At en:Talk:Folk_costume I read that most of the contributors to that discussion did not at all object to "costume", even if they were from Indonesia or the Philippines.
After a lot of discussion about the title name, the title on EN Wikipedia went to "Folk costume" and there was no discussion about the name again. So I would think that Category:Folk costumes will still be the best name for the Commons category as well. JopkeB (talk) 08:19, 11 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@E4024: Are you still interested in this discussion? Please add your opinion about the name. JopkeB (talk) 08:19, 11 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

It's not the folk that was raised as problematic, but using "costume" to describe Indigenous regalia. A little googling will confirm that it's often considered offensive, since in North America "costume" was an association with Halloween. "Folk costume" may also suggest there is just one such outfit per people, whereas "traditional clothing" acknowledges there may be more. - Themightyquill (talk) 11:30, 25 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Themightyquill: It looks like we cannot come to a conclusion about the name. What to do? Shall I invite the participants of Commons:Categories for discussion/2015/05/Category:National costumes by country to join this discussion? Or shall we hold a poll/vote about the two names (Traditional clothing and Folk costumes) and invite them as well? JopkeB (talk) 07:51, 13 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

You can invite more participation, I guess? Commons doesn't have a good solution to deal with impasses and low-participation. - Themightyquill (talk) 11:30, 25 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Zoupan, Rimshot, Astridx, Kürschner, and E4024: Some years ago you participated in the discussion Commons:Categories for discussion/2015/05/Category:National costumes by country. Unfortunately this discussion was incompletely closed. Now there is a new discussion about the same subject, with only two participants, with opposing opinions. We would like to ask you to join this new discussion and hopefully your input will bring us to a conclusion. In short:

  1. There are a lot of different names used in the subcategories of Category:Traditional clothes by country.
  2. Themightyquill and JopkeB would like to harmonize those category names and reduce the number of varieties. So far we agree.
  3. There are two questions to be solved:
    1. What name should the parent category have? Themightyquill votes for Category:Traditional clothing, JopkeB for Category:Folk costumes. See arguments above.
    2. Should all the subcategories start with the same term? Answer so far: Perhaps we should be practical and only merge the subcategories for countries in both current parent categories.

What do you think? JopkeB (talk) 03:50, 26 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

"Traditional clothing" surrounds it best, I think. Good luck with it!-- 06:48, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
In my eyes, the older discussion leaned to traditional clothing. I still think that it's the best choice, because it is more inclusive than national costumes (what about regional costumes? e.g., Category:National costumes of Germany contains no national costumes at all, because there is no such thing in Germany) and more neutral than anything with costumes in the name (as per Themightyquill). I have no preference regarding clothing vs. clothes. That being said, I would be happy with any of traditional clothes, traditional clothing or folk costumes. --rimshottalk 22:04, 26 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

The result of the vote is:

  • Category:Traditional clothing: 2 (Themightyquill + Kürschner)
  • Category:Folk costumes: 1 (JopkeB)
  • Neutral: 1 (Rimshot)

So the vote is in favor of "Category:Traditional clothing". That it will be. JopkeB (talk) 05:43, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]


This discussion was about reducing the variety of names of the subcategories of Category:Traditional clothing, and first of all about the one name that can be used in all the subcategories.

Category:Christopher McCandless' abandoned bus[edit]

Obviously, the inclusion of the name of Christopher McCandless in the category title is intended to.cater to those people who enter his name into a search engine. The way the title is worded, however, implies that McCandless was the one who abandoned the bus or that he owned the bus or similar. Surely there has to be a better way to phrase this title. RadioKAOS (talk) 00:48, 2 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Including his name implies ownership by Christopher McCandless, which would be incorrect. He is but one of many people who's lives (and deaths in some cases) have involved this bus. The bus is Bus 142 of the Fairbanks City Transit System and should be named accordingly.

Category:Mulmholk[edit]

Rename to Category:Insect hotels in Sweden.

Per COM:LP, category names should be in English, and "Mulmholk" is not an English word. COM:LP requires English names for categories in most situations, and as this is a rare but basic concept, I don't think that it falls into one of the exceptions.

I found this and didn't know what it was, especially as sv:Mulmholk has no babel links. People at the sv: help desk, sv:Wikipedia:Wikipediafrågor, explained that it's fundamentally a kind of en:insect hotel, one designed to support insects that live in rotten wood. Now, I see no reason that such a concept couldn't exist outside Sweden, so it probably shouldn't have a Swedish name, but unfortunately the creator just wasn't aware of how we try to use English for category names. (On the same day he created Category:Entomologi and Category:Judarskogens mulmholkar för insekter, which overlaps with Category:Entomology and which could be something like "Insect hotels in sv:Judarskogens", respectively.) So...since these are a kind of insect hotel, since they were unintentionally created out of line with our category-naming standard, and since "Hotels for insects relying on rotten wood" (or something comparable) would be a really clunky name for a category with so few contents, I think it would be best to merge this into the insect hotels category tree. And since all of these insect hotels are in Sweden, let's just make it a country-specific subcategory. (Nyttend (talk) 23:41, 2 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

So it is a subclass of en:insect hotel. I ask there to see if somebody knows a better denomination. I have looked at mulm, it refers to something that has mouldered, rottened or crumbled. Per W (talk) 07:03, 3 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Janee, why "Sweden, Norway and Germany"? I can't remember seeing any multi-country categories for ordinary concepts (it's not "Coasts of Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana"), except regions, and Sweden, Norway, and Germany aren't part of any regions that don't also include a number of other countries. Finally, if we agree with changing the scope to fit the contents, Norway and Germany don't fit; all the contents (both the subcategory and the images not in the subcategory) are all from a single nature reserve in Sweden. Nyttend (talk) 00:17, 4 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Since they are common in sweden, germany and norway and all of these countries use the word Mulm (Mulmhöhlen, Mulmholk, Mulmhotell). The word Mulm also learns to occur in english where it means death.

Category:LGBT businesspeople by country[edit]

Not necessary category (together with subcats). Leave people in peace with their private/public identity and/or intimacy.

Not a bad idea. If they are not drag queens or transformers (performing artists, not sure of the English name) why would we need to know their personal affairs?

Category:Female by hair color by country[edit]

Category for three nations opened by an IP. In my previous stay in Commons I had asked several times to prohibit opening cats to IPs. Indeed my experience in these pages, without making any checks as to where the IPs come from, tell me that there is one or a few people (IPs) obsessed with female humans and all the time opening not essential (less educative or practical) cats about "women wearing earrings by country", "women smoking at the street" etc. Let us delete this cat. Let us also delete similar "female" cats that are not helping with classifying people. If we tolerate such cats, why do we discuss about "female diplomats" et al?. Note: Even the "singular" at the title is a proof that IPs should not be let to do certain things in Commons. If they come as "users" we can talk to them and even convince them about a few things.

Category:Unresolved names[edit]

poorly developed. Category:Unresolved taxon does the job Estopedist1 (talk) 19:12, 26 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

It was created before Category:Unresolved taxon existed. I don't think it's necessary anymore.-- Darwin Ahoy! 21:16, 31 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Category:Files from José Ibáñez panoramio stream[edit]

The p should be capitalised, as done with 5 out of 7 others in Category:Panoramio streams. The two more with lower case p should also be renamed. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 11:43, 13 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Category:Documents from the US Naval Postgraduate School Library[edit]

The issue concerns the lack of clarity concerning the copyright status of of the Thesis submissions, as it's not clear which are compatible with Commons licenseing (and genuinely PD-US-Gov) as claimed.. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 16:48, 15 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I would like to think that all theses submitted at the Naval Postgraduate School are PD-USGov-Navy since the students were members of the Navy and their research was part of their job. The same goes for all reports and documents prepared by NPS staff. Documents written by "external" authors such as Stanford students are most likely not PD-USGov, but publications prior to 1989 may qualify for {{PD-US-no notice}}.

Not discussion about the category (CFD), but discussion about files (DR). Discussion takes places at Category talk:Documents from the US Naval Postgraduate School Library, or at concrete, problematic files Estopedist1 (talk) 19:07, 19 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Category:Castle Rock, Edinburgh[edit]

and Category:Castle Rock (Edinburgh) Perfectly correct as it was. Commas are normal for sub-locations, as in addresses. In the UK, brackets are for disambiguation. "Not a populated place" is irrelevant. This should have been discussed first. There's no reason to ape Wikipedia; Commons is not Wikipedia. Rodhullandemu (talk) 22:14, 22 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Agreed. Move it back to Category:Castle Rock, Edinburgh. Edinburgh here is a location, not a type of Castle Rock. - Themightyquill (talk) 19:42, 26 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
