Category:Fiat twin cam enginesEdit

Incorrect rename. Fiat have made lots of engines with twin camshafts. Only the original narrow family,Category:Fiat twin cam engine, is known as the "twin cam" specifically. See the en:WP article. Andy Dingley (talk) 22:47, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Nonsense. It's only an incorrect rename for someone who is obviously not familiar with the plural policy here on commons. Please take a look at Commons:Rename a category#Types of renames. And also read Commons:OVERCAT#Over-categorization please, since this is a matter that you're regularly ignoring. Thank you in advance.--FAEP (talk) 10:36, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
A quick handful of counter examples:
There's nothing wrong with "Category:Fiat twin cam engines", except that it means something different to "Category:Fiat twin cam engine". One is the set of all engines Fiat have made with twin camshafts, the other is a more specific family of engines they made, known as the Fiat twin cam engine. We can call either of these what we wish, but we can't call them both the same thing.
Category:Fiat Lampredi engine would be a reasonable synonym for the twin cam engine, although it's less familiar as a name and it's also inconsistent with naming used so far. Andy Dingley (talk) 22:41, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
