User:Philip J. Rayment/Category deletions

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Category pages can't be renamed, so a new one has to be created and the old one deleted. Categories to be deleted can be listed here so that I can delete them.

This is primarily to conform to the revised Manual of Style, but can be for other reasons also.

  • Could you please remove the Category:Musical Instruments (Category:Musical Instrument already exists) Learn together 14:15, 13 December 2007 (EST)
  • Category:Historical people (No entries, current structure doesn't support its use) Learn together 14:32, 13 December 2007 (EST)
  • Category:British politics (Moved to Category:British Politics) Learn together 14:55, 13 December 2007 (EST)
  • Category:British rugby league teams (Moved to British Rugby League Teams -- only 1 article in category at time of move) Learn together 15:09, 13 December 2007 (EST)
  • Category:Alternate rock bands (No entries; Category:Alternate Rock Bands already exists and is populated) Learn together 15:51, 17 December 2007 (EST)—no such page. Philip J. Rayment 08:18, 27 December 2007 (EST)
I've done the second one, but the others kind of pre-empt policy discussions Philip J. Rayment 00:56, 14 December 2007 (EST)
Ok. At least I'll put them out there for you when/if you're ready. Learn together 01:15, 14 December 2007 (EST)
  • Category:Catholic leaders (Moved to Category:Catholic Leaders) Learn together 00:37, 27 December 2007 (EST)
All done. Philip J. Rayment 08:18, 27 December 2007 (EST)
Thanks ;-) Learn together 03:28, 28 December 2007 (EST)
  • Category:Basketball players (Moved to Category:Basketball Players) Learn together 03:28, 28 December 2007 (EST) Done. Philip J. Rayment 03:30, 28 December 2007 (EST)
  • Category:Chess players (Moved to Category:Chess Players) Learn together 12:52, 28 December 2007 (EST)
  • Category:US Towns and Cities (Already exists and in use as United States Towns and Cities) Learn together 20:53, 28 December 2007 (EST)

Done. Philip J. Rayment 22:56, 28 December 2007 (EST)

  • Category:Origins debate (Moved to Category:Origins Debate) Learn together 01:41, 2 January 2008 (EST)
Also, Category:Evolution is currently locked; I wished to add Category:Origins Debate as currently only Category:Creationism and Category:Intelligent Design are considered subsets of Origins Debate. Thanks Learn together 01:41, 2 January 2008 (EST) Done and unlocked. Philip J. Rayment 02:11, 2 January 2008 (EST)
  • Category:Chemical nomenclature (Already exists as Category:Chemical Nomenclature) Learn together 02:28, 2 January 2008 (EST) Done. Philip J. Rayment 02:42, 2 January 2008 (EST)
  • Category:Chinese emperors (Moved to Category:Chinese Emperors) Learn together 23:20, 7 January 2008 (EST) Done. Philip J. Rayment 03:19, 8 January 2008 (EST)
In an interesting twist, the article Video Game was redirected to the Category:Video games. An article Video games was just recently created. Could you please see deal with this accordingly. Thanks Learn together 01:55, 8 January 2008 (EST)
You didn't have that quite correct (and so I found a further problem). The article Video Games (upper case plural) was a redirect (which I've changed), and Video games (lower case plural) was just created. But there was also Video game (lower case singular). I've asked the creator of the new article to combine it with the singular one. Philip J. Rayment 03:19, 8 January 2008 (EST)
Yes, when they are looked at they can have a tendency to be a bit more complex than first anticipated. ;-) Learn together 00:30, 13 January 2008 (EST)

  • Category:Metamorphic rocks (Moved to Category:Metamorphic Rocks}

  • Category:Latin phrases (Moved to Category:Latin Phrases) Learn together 01:48, 15 January 2008 (EST) Done.

In future, if you notice that a category has a talk page, could you note that also please? I'll check also, but two of us checking means less chance of overlooking it. Philip J. Rayment 09:42, 15 January 2008 (EST)

Thank you, I didn't think about that. I'll try to look for it in the future. Learn together 13:23, 15 January 2008 (EST)

  • Category:Biblical animals (Moved to Category:Biblical Animals) (No Talk Page) Learn together 19:57, 19 January 2008 (EST)
  • Category:Bible versions (Moved to Category:Bible Versions) (No Talk Page) Learn together 20:55, 19 January 2008 (EST)

  • Category:Biblical places (Moved to Category:Biblical Places) (No Talk Page) Learn together 04:27, 20 January 2008 (EST)
  • Category:Biblical books (Moved to Category:Biblical Books) (There IS a Talk Page) Learn together 05:48, 20 January 2008 (EST)


I'll ask you to do a bit more work, and a bit less!

Could you link the category pages please? Like this: [[:Category:Biblical books]] (note the first colon). Not only will that make it easier for me, it will also show if I miss any (no red link) (I nearly did, and perhaps actually did, in this last lot). But to save you some work, in most cases there's no need to mention the new category (it should be pretty obvious), and I only asked you to mention if there is a talk page, not if there isn't. That's just unnecessary extra work for you, as in most cases there isn't one.

Thank you Learn together 11:38, 1 February 2008 (EST)
