Category:Funerals of Patriarch Alexy IIEdit

Spelling error, should be Category:Funeral of Patriarch Alexy II --russavia (talk) 19:27, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

For consistency with Category:Patriarch Alexius II, should it not be Category:Funeral of Patriarch Alexius II? Man vyi (talk) 07:37, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Done --rimshottalk 23:29, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Category:Patriarch Alexius IIEdit

Rename to Category:Patriarch Alexy II. Alexius II is a very obscure name for the Patriarch, and most usage tends to refer to him as Alexy II (or Alexey II). As Alexy II is the prevalent form used in English with the ROC, I have suggested it as Alexy II. --russavia (talk) 05:21, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

  • Seems to be reasonable, we rename the English article, lets rename to commons cat as well Alex Bakharev (talk) 06:02, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Done, renamed some other cats on the way as well. --rimshottalk 23:30, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Category:Saint-Petersburg State UniversityEdit

Rename to Category:Saint Petersburg State University (without the hyphen), as the hyphenated name in English is errenous, which makes this category harder to find, as Category:Saint Petersburg is the ultimate parent. --russavia (talk) 05:18, 12 December 2008 (UTC)


Moved to Saint Petersburg State University. --rimshottalk 07:17, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Category:Ice hockey clubsEdit

I started some times ago to categorize ice hockey teams in Category:Ice hockey clubs, by analogy with Category:Association football clubs, before I realize there is a Category:Sports teams AND Category:Sports clubs. I think the term team is better, because it's the one in use in the english wikipedia. What do you think is the best to choose ? --ohkami (talk) 17:13, 21 December 2008 (UTC)


Deleted in favor of Category:Ice hockey teams, by User:Foroa. --rimshottalk 11:47, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Category:Underwater diversEdit

"Underwater divers" is redundant and not a term ever used in real life. Hence, it would be better to upmerge Category:Underwater divers into Category:Divers, and, as the changes (recent, I believe) seem to have been made to differentiate it from categories related to diving from platforms - well, there's lots of ways to disambiguate that, such as "High diving" and "Competitive diving".

Category:Underwater diving is similarly inappropriate. --Adam Cuerden (talk) 19:51, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Might be that thinking of Category:Skydiving in Category:Diving was the reason of giving that name. It is a redirect now. --Stunteltje (talk) 09:16, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

I don't understand this discussion. There are descriptions/explainations on the category pages for a very long time. Diving is jumping into the water. But I suggest to create a new Category:Diving (jump into water) and let Category:Diving as a parent category for all uses of the word diving. --Diwas (talk) 11:11, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

The point is that there's no reason to make the sport almost universally recognised as "High diving" or "Competitive diving" have the main Diving category instead of what many more people will think of as diving. Adam Cuerden (talk) 21:25, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Why should we not create the following:

Until now, there are two things in one category.--Diwas (talk) 12:17, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Category:Orchestras by cityEdit

We have Category:Orchestras by country, we do not need by cities as well. --Fluteflute (talk) 16:57, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

  • I agree, this category is superfluous and should be deleted. Andrei Romanenko (talk) 20:14, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
