Category:Hoover Dam, Colorado RiverEdit

Move to Category:Hoover Dam. User:Foroa moved it to this bizarre title last May without any reason that I can find. What other Hoover Dams are there? If everything at en:Hoover Dam (disambiguation) had its own category, none of them would be at "Hoover Dam" even if they were the only thing by that name, except for the one in Ohio. That's already at Category:Hoover Dam (Ohio), which is where it belongs: it's obscure (I grew up not far away, and I don't remember hearing of it until recently), so it should be disambiguated and leave the main "Hoover Dam" category for the world-famous dam. As it is, disambiguation actively causes confusion — File:Hoover Dam 2003.jpg accidentally got put in the Ohio category, and this likely wouldn't have happened if there had been a simple Hoover Dam category into which it could go.

  • Move to Category:Hoover Dam. One of the most famous dams in the world; certainly the most famous in the United States. I've never even heard of Category:Hoover Dam (Ohio); from looking at a few websites, I'd guess that the name "Hoover Reservoir" is actually more common for that general location. (Also, even if it were to be disambiguated, I don't recall "Feature Name, River Name" being common or standard naming convention on Commons: Disambiguation would usually be "Hoover Dam (Colorado River)".) --Closeapple (talk) 22:06, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Move per all above for this world class dam. Royalbroil 13:43, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
