Category:People honoured with a mineral name

The result of the discussion was: listify and delete. – Fayenatic London 20:06, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Delete Category:People honoured with a mineral name
  • Nominator's rationale This is essentially an awards cat, and we heavily discorage awards cats. I really see no reason to have this one at all. John Pack Lambert (talk) 21:49, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Listify and we have a list List of minerals named after people to add any missing entries to. -- 65.92.180.137 (talk) 03:15, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Keep Many notable people, like Lavoisier, Rittmann, Argand, Bragg, Agricola, Berzelius, Pauling and Mendeleev got their scientific work honoured with a mineral species or mineral group name. And we have: Category:Royal Medal winners, Category:Recipients of the Copley Medal and Category:Nobel laureates in Physics. Don't bother, it's a hidden cat. --Chris.urs-o (talk) 07:34, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
    It seems that the Wikipedia policy is against it, but there are some points. These people are related, at least on Wikipedia: a professor of mineralogy discovers a new mineral and names it after one of his masters. Some mineral stubs exist on Wikipedia more because the mineral name honours a notable person and less because the mineral itself is very important. The CNMNC/IMA master list (2012 version) has 4,814 valid minerals, WP Rocks and minerals lists 1,228 articles (maybe c. 400 mineral articles named after people, but only a fraction are notable people with a biography on Wikipedia). There are both: Category:Recipients of the Copley Medal and Copley Medal (list of recipients), they complement each other. An encyclopedia is a library, and a library uses lists (in the broad sense) to overview itself. You need tools, everything isn't just one format, e.g.: categories, hidden cats and maintenance cats (I defend pluralism: truck, car, streetcar, bus, ship and so on). You need tools to make your voluntary work easier. I feel that CfD, AfD and copyvio are on overload modus. I think that Wikipedia is getting vandalism after the Wikipedia hype (c. 2007) in part because it is successful and defends a neutral point-of-view. The truth on Wikipedia destroys propaganda, and so the powerful people who pay for the propaganda fight Wikipedia. --Chris.urs-o (talk) 03:00, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment. The user who created Category:Minerals named after people decided to create this category instead after that category was nominated for deletion: see here. Good Ol’factory (talk) 03:38, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Delete once checked that all members are already on the list. None of these people are defined by having a mineral named after them anymore than John Carne Bidwill is defined by Araucaria bidwillii. The fact that it's a hidden category is not germane to this discussion. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 09:07, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Delete per WP:OC#AWARDS, but listify. Having a mineral name after them is not a defining characteristic of the people in this category, so it should not exist. The fact that it has been hidden is irrelevant; this is not a maintenance category. --​Brown​HairedGirl​(talk) • (contribs) 12:25, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
    As it is not "concerned with the maintenance or administration of the Wikipedia project itself, rather than being part of the content of the encyclopedia", I have edited the category page to prevent it being a hidden category. BencherliteTalk 21:57, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Listify (check) and delete as this is not a defining characteristic of the people in the category. BencherliteTalk 21:57, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Listify (check) and delete - an honours category not defining of its members. Exceptions are individually argued (not always successfully) for certain rare awards, usually those internationally recognised as a top achievement in their field (eg Nobel or Oscars) or perhaps where reliable sources find it defining (ie, the honour is the main description a person is introduced with, inclusion in the list is what they are famous for). No such claim has been made in this case. --Qetuth (talk) 01:09, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment -- we ought either to keep this or "minerals named after people" (but not both). One reason for only allowing award categories for the most important award is that the job is done much better by a list, which can place the winners in order and add something about why they won. That one is totally different; and since the naming is entirely at random dates, I see not objection to it. Peterkingiron (talk) 16:33, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
    Reply. Actually, I think that in this case a list could be very powerful. If laid out as a table, it could be sortable by person-name, mineral-name, date of naming, nationality of person, and so on. That's much more than can be achieved with a category. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 17:43, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
    BHG A sortable table of this kind with 300 names needs a lot of work time and you end up with more than one "article" of 100 kBytes. --Chris.urs-o (talk) 20:11, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
    It doesn't have to start out that way. Just make a bare list to begin with, and there is no deadline for improving it. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 21:36, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
    BHG I mean: the category is ready with hotcat, a list needs edit time. --Chris.urs-o (talk) 15:38, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
    Which also means a category is much harder to maintain. Anyway, the fact of the matter is, we avoid award categories. The person who gave the sample mentioned above would rate an article whether or not people had decided to name a mineral after him.John Pack Lambert (talk) 18:28, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Support, assuming it is all the same franchise. Resolute 20:59, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose, unless those are all the same league with different names. Because putting all players that just played for that team in various leagues would make the cat structure inaccurate. As you would have to put Category:Toronto Lynx players as a sub cat in each of those leagues players categories which would then mean the player played in each of those leagues if he is in the Toronto Lynx players cat when that is likely not true for every player. -DJSasso (talk) 14:25, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Oh comeon, it's all the same franchise dating back to 1997. And no it does not make the cat structure inaccurate. Playing in different leagues has nothing to do with this. The fact that these categories feature the same franchise, this is a case of WP:OVERCAT. Simple as that. – Michael (talk) 22:00, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support -- If this is all about the same team playing at differnet periods in differnet leagues, we do not need more than one category for them. Peterkingiron (talk) 16:28, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Merge It is all one team. The current system has some players in multiple categories, which considering the number of categories most sportspeople end up in anyway is a very bad idea.John Pack Lambert (talk) 03:16, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Nominator's rationale: Per other categories in Category:Works by writer nationality. As these are works by writers, they don't need to say "literary" or "literature." Alternately, we could go with the format of Category:Japanese works by writer for all of these; this would match, for example, Category:French novels by writer.-- Mike Selinker (talk) 19:48, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Nominator's rationale: Split. No reason to split out those with names since having a name is not a reason to not include them in the underpopulated main categories. With two parents, there is no reason not to correctly classify these. If discussion tends to support, I'll also nominate the sub categories. Looks like there is only one subcategory that needs merging. Vegaswikian (talk) 19:04, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Merge per nom. No reason to split roundabouts with explicit names from other notable ones that lack a clear name.John Pack Lambert (talk) 21:54, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
  • comment The upmerge almost makes sense except that roundabouts and traffic circles are the same thing. I don't know why we have this WP:FORK but I shall be calling for the merge of the two article shortly. Mangoe (talk) 22:12, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
    While the basic concepts are the same, they do appear to be different. The traffic circle is a controlled intersection where as the roundabout is not. While similar in overhead appearance, they are not the same. Have fun on the article merge discussion. If the articles are merged, then the categories can follow. Vegaswikian (talk) 22:35, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
    Looking at the discussion I see that there's no technical authority cited for the difference, and the one expert in the discussion back last March basically said that there's no distinction. Of course there will be a battle but... Mangoe (talk) 22:51, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
    The bigger problem I'm seeing is that the people who are populating these categories can't tell the difference either, to the point where essentially every circular interchange appears in both categories, either directly or because it's in a list. Given the definitions I've seen bandied about I would be hard pressed to say whether any of the many circles in DC are roundabouts by US standards (I'm inclined to say few to none of them are, because they are mostly controlled by traffic lights). I think it makes more sense to make one unified category for all of them because I think it's going to be impossible to cite specifically what they are. Mangoe (talk) 04:43, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
    Part of the problem may be that the two categories were is separated trees. I made some changes to bring these closer together and maybe help to reduce the confusion in the future. Of course there is the one intersection that was converted from a traffic circle to a roundabout. Vegaswikian (talk) 01:33, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Merge everything to a new category Category:Traffic circles and roundabouts. From what I have read it sounds like the definition of the terms varries by location, and I have to agree that few people realize there is a difference between them, let alone what the difference is.John Pack Lambert (talk) 03:22, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
    Actually all of the traffic circles were removed so all that is contained here is roundabouts at this time. So this is now basically a rename and not a split. Vegaswikian (talk) 03:48, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
    Were it so simple. Looking in Category:Named roundabouts in the United States a cursory examination shows that perhaps none of the members is actually a roundabout in the modern US-traffic-engineering sense. Consider Dupont Circle, perhaps the most extreme deviant: it has two concentric circles and an underpass, all controlled by a complex system of traffic lights. It doesn't seem to fit the definition given in the roundabout article, and it does seem to fit with that article's claim about what makes a traffic circle. I am generally wary of removing members during a discussion, but I would suggest that we're not necessarily going to find sources that say "traffic circle, not a roundabout" or vice versa about every one of these, or perhaps even more than a couple of these. Mangoe (talk) 13:29, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Merge all to Category:Traffic circles and roundabouts per JPL. It looks to me as though it's too difficult to split these two classes precisely. Mangoe (talk) 13:03, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

The result of the discussion was: rename to Category:Video games set in the Crusades per Category:Video games set in the Middle Ages.--Mike Selinker (talk) 13:14, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
Propose renaming Category:Video Games set in Crusaders to Category:Crusades video games
Nominator's rationale: Rename. This was tagged for speedy renaming to the same title, but the nomination was mis-typed and then rejected, see below. Although I initially supported Category:Video games about the Crusades, I looked around the hierarchy e.g. Category:Video games with historical settings and was going to nominate this instead for renaming to Category:Video games set in the Crusades. However, the sister category is Category:Crusades films, and that follows a thoroughly-observed pattern within both Category:Films by war and Category:Video games by war. IMHO it would be better to change all of those to the pattern "Films set in the Foo War", but for now let's just harmonise this ungrammatical odd-one-out. – Fayenatic London 18:43, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Query shouldn't this be Category:Video games about the Crusades or Category:Video games set in the Crusades per Category:Works about the Crusades?

Nominator's rationale: Rename as ambiguous; these are delightful anachronisms begging for clarification. The video games in question were not written in the named historical eras. The proposed new names will correspond to some siblings within Category:Video games with historical settings, Category:Middle Ages in popular culture and Category:Roman Empire in art and culture. Although there is a page Medieval fantasy which is about modern works set in the Middle Ages, it is only a poorly-referenced stub at the moment, and there are no sibling categories by that name e.g. in Category:Fantasy films by genre or Category:Fantasy novels by subgenre, so it is not well established as a sub-genre. – Fayenatic London 17:22, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Propose deleting Category:National Hockey League controversies (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)
Nominator's rationale: For the same reasons why its parent article was deleted. Like the list, the definition of "controversy" is ill-defined and based almost entirely on someone's opinion of what constitutes such. Nearly all of the entries fall into one of two groups: labour disputes and fighting/brawls/violence. Those both have their own categories, and I am not seeing any great reason to join them in this fashion. Resolute 15:08, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

Propose merging Category:Rhinolophus to Category:Rhinolophidae
Nominator's rationale: Redundant. Rhinolophus is basically the only genus in the family Rhinolophidae (there's one poorly known and questionable fossil too). This just adds an unnecessary layer to the categorization scheme. Ucucha (talk) 04:22, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
Keep. Family > genra is the standard category tree format. - The Bushranger One ping only 10:00, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Not so; look at the other families in Category:Bats. Many don't have genus categories, especially the ones that contain only a single genus (e.g., Category:Miniopteridae​, Category:Nycteridae). We subdivide large taxa by genus when there is a need, and in this case there is no need. Ucucha (talk) 14:17, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Propose renaming Category:University of California, Los Angeles School of Law alumni to Category:UCLA School of Law alumni
Nominator's rationale: To match the article, which is at UCLA School of Law per WP:COMMONNAME. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 07:57, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Keep per Category:University of California, Los Angeles, Category:University of California, Los Angeles people, Category:University of California, Los Angeles alumni etc. Oculi (talk) 17:59, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
    Sure, but is it better to match the category structure or the article name? Both are in the guidelines, but I think matching the article title is more important here. – Philosopher Let us reason together. 18:07, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support Rename The standard is to append the word "alumni" after the name of the school and this should be a speedy rename. The name of the associated category is irrelevant here and avoids the utter illogic of having the category name not match the title of the parent article, though when it comes to Los Angeles and categories it seems that all logic is out the window. Alansohn (talk) 19:05, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Keep we generally discorage the use of acrynyms in category names, and I see no reason to do so here.John Pack Lambert (talk) 21:12, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
    We also follow WP:COMMONNAME and per the school's website, the name is "UCLA School of Law", which is why the title of the parent article is UCLA School of Law, matching the real-world usage. "University of California, Los Angeles School of Law" is a manufactured title with no legitimacy or provenance. It does not correspond to any reality and we should discourage such inconsistency. Alansohn (talk) 04:29, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
    Still looking for a better image, but this indicates that it may not be a manufactured name. Vegaswikian (talk) 20:16, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support per nom. There are conflicting "conventions", but I think here matching to the article name about the specific school trumps consistency with the other categories/article names. We do not discourage acronyms in category names if the article name uses acronyms: eg, Category:NATO, Category:OPEC, and many others. Good Ol’factory (talk) 04:25, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Keep. The problem here is that we have multiple naming conventions in play. The top parent article is University of California, Los Angeles. So to me it makes the most sense to use that as the base for all names associated with the institution. I guess it is safe to say that this one can not be decided on it's own. The decision really needs to be made in consideration of the rest of this group of categories. While the main article is at UCLA School of Law, the infobox uses University of California, Los Angeles School of Law. Vegaswikian (talk) 20:06, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Question? Are you sure of your logic that "University of California, Los Angeles" should be "the base for all names associated with the institution"? I'd be happy to nominate Category:UCLA Bruins and all of the categories within that structure to conform to your standard as Category:University of California, Los Angeles Bruins, with several dozen other subcategories to be renamed including University of California, Los Angeles Bruins women's track and field athletes‎. And unlike UCLA School of Law, which uses the abbreviation as an institution operating as a school separate and apart from UCLA, the sports teams at the college are indisputably within the parent article University of California, Los Angeles and the parent Category:University of California, Los Angeles. I'm also not sure why the name in the infobox should carry any weight over the name of the article or the only name used on the school's website, but the name in the infobox is now "UCLA School of Law", thanks to the power of Wikipedia to correct such errors.

I think UCLA School of Law is definitely the official (not to mention common) name of the school: just as UCLA Law Review is the official name of the school's academic journal. Good Ol’factory (talk) 04:41, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
Who issues the diploma and what is on that diploma? Vegaswikian (talk) 21:41, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
I haven't a clue—I'm not a graduate. I'm not sure that's a good measure, however. The name of the universities I attended are in Latin script on my diplomas. "VNIVERSITAS etc." Good Ol’factory (talk) 22:39, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
Comment however many sports teams do not use the full name of the college or university in the categories. In fact, most either use an like UCLA, or are in forms like Category:Harvard Crimson athletes, even though the institution is Harvard University.John Pack Lambert (talk) 01:32, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Category:University and college book publishing companies
The following is an archived discussion concerning one or more categories. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on an appropriate discussion page (such as the category's talk page or in a deletion review). No further edits should be made to this section.
The result of the discussion was: rename to Category:University presses and move other contents to Category:Academic publishing companies. – Fayenatic London 07:33, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
Propose renaming Category:University and college book publishing companies to Category:University and college publishing companies​Cqtegory:University presses.
Nominator's rationale: Most of the companies in this cat also publish magazines and/or academic journals. Few companies concentrate on one of these publication types alone, so creating "University and college journal publishing companies" would just create a cat with almost the same content as this one.

The result of the discussion was: merge to Category:Delaware high school sports conferences. Good Ol’factory (talk) 00:07, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
Propose deleting Category:Henlopen Conference (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)
Nominator's rationale: WP:SMALLCAT unlikely to be expanded further, dubious notability of subject. Secret account 04:51, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
I see that the category has been further populated, so my support for the upmerge is unconditional. Mangoe (talk) 23:55, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
It currently contains only one item, viz., the head article. --​Brown​HairedGirl​(talk) • (contribs) 22:47, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
