TUSC token 46aa0b6bfa93c10faa712e9fc758c4d9Edit

I am now proud owner of a TUSC account! --Apalsola tc 19:56, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Linking category...Edit

Thanks for your clear description in undo - that's my logical mistake, but properly linking by categories generates another problem: I don't see anything under "my" OS category. I need some time to find good solutions. Greetings, --Jasc PL (talk) 21:49, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

@Jasc PL: If you are unable to find any meaningful content to a category that probably means that it is an unnecessary category. And particularly that is not an excuse to improperly categorise useful categories under them, not even temporarily.
Another problem in the categories you have created is the naming: "Raspberry Pi" is the name chosen for the root category, so it should be used also in the sub-categories. In addition, abbreviations like "RPi" may be ambiguous, so they should be avoided. ––Apalsola tc 23:39, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
@Apalsola: Thanks for your answer and contribution to this problem; I still working on it. We talking about Category:Raspberry Pi operating systems - from this point of view all is now exact as should be: user, after click on "[Linux distro name] on RPi" should see direct the screenshots of that distro working on PI and, as a reference, as a subcategory, main distro category. The easiest way may be able to link direct main distro category - but I don't want something like e.g. Category:Fedora (operating system) and every names in another form.
Naming: I keep that in mind; one - avoiding repeating many times in category tree "Raspberry Pi...", second - keeping all category names clear, easy to guess or find. However, only 8 of 31 subcategories are empty now - all of them are needed; first I must have categories as a destinations for uploading images.
So, I'm open to any proposals - I would like the final effect will be as good as possible. --Jasc PL (talk) 00:52, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
@Jasc PL: The main distro category (e.g. Category:Fedora (operating system) must be the parent category for Category:Fedora on RPi, not sub-category. That is how the Commons categorisation works and you cannot have different system for one subtree.
In my opinion, you should create categories only if there already is some meaningful content to add or upload to them. You should not create empty categories for possible future use. ––Apalsola tc 20:27, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
Apalsola, I had a good discuss with one of admins here - unfortunately there is any way to keep the proper category tree (as you mention) and keep functionality I'v think about. So, I will remove all the same wrongly constructions, rename "my" RPi categories to full name and/or use some redirections. Then I link from RPi distro to main OS category, by usual links.
Keep calm Apalsola - I don't leave Raspberry Pi project until all work I planed will be done. Today empty categories are not for undefined future; I keep some open browser tabs with Flickr resources, or, if I couldn't find all what I need - I'll make the lacking screenshots myself. I simply don't have enough time to doing all in one time. --Jasc PL (talk) 20:56, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
I see, you are a very impatient. OK, but maybe more urgently is to implement {{LangSwitch}} at Fedora and the rest of similar OS pages. Isn't it? --Jasc PL (talk) 21:34, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
@Jasc PL: First, please add your comments below the comment you are referring to instead of splitting someone else's comments.
And about impatiency: maybe it would be better to focus to the actual issue here instead of making assumptions about my personality.
I am not asking you to do everything at the same time. I also do know that people make mistakes. I have made many of them myself. However, you should not revert other users' edits, when they I trying to help you. That is what I was referring to in the first paragraph of my previous comments.
And about the empty categories: I am not asking you or anyone else to remove the current empty categories if you are planning to add content to them. But usually it is better to create categories only after (or the same time) you have the content.
But anyway, I think discussion is pretty much closed now. I look forward to see nice screenshots of different OS's running on Raspberry Pi. BR, ––Apalsola tc 11:42, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
