Category:Coats of arms of families of EnglandEdit

Hi, you have moved some images from Category:Coats of arms of families of England to Category:Coats of arms of English nobility (for example Category:Herbert arms). This is a problem: Category:Coats of arms of families of England should be the top category. The nobility category is difficult as English gentry families enter and leave the nobility over time. Nobility may just be a temporary phenomenon for many gentry families. Thus the Category:Coats of arms of English nobility is problematical for English usage. I believe the German nobility is different as titles do not die out so easily as there is a true aristocracy, as opposed to the English system which is not a true aristocracy as only eldest sons are noble, their younger brothers are merely gentry. Therefore I suggest all members of Category:Coats of arms of English nobility should also appear in Category:Coats of arms of families of England. I would ideally like to see Category:Coats of arms of English nobility closed down. We need an all inclusive category which includes ALL English coats of arms. No English reference book of arms categorises by "nobility". Thanks.Lobsterthermidor (talk) 23:07, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Lobsterthermidor. Thank you for clarifying this issue. You may want to start a dicussion at Commons talk:WikiProject Heraldry so there can be some sort of consensus on what to do. De728631 (talk) 13:48, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
Before I consider that, what is your opinion on my suggestion? Lobsterthermidor (talk) 11:23, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
Well, I wouldn't mind having only one central category like "Coats of arms of families of England". The nobility category could then be redirected. De728631 (talk) 14:09, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
I agree, I think that would be best. Gentry is the common factor in heraldry and there are hundreds of English gentry families which have had just one member ennobled, who died childless, maybe centuries ago. So which cat would those arms go in? So can we both start work on recategorising images back to the cat "Coats of arms of families of England", then adding a re-direct when completed? I don't think this is a controversial issue. Many thanks.Lobsterthermidor (talk) 11:54, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
Yes, this sounds like a plan. At the moment I'm pretty busy off-Wiki but I'll try to help out with the recatorizing. Let's put them all back to "Coats of arms of families of England". De728631 (talk) 20:32, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Un-coordinated category moves againEdit

The very same user who has already been admonished by you not to continue with un-coordinated category moves, renaming and inventing shows being absolutely unimpressed by that. He had been advised "... you had quite a few discussions on this talk page where people complained about your introduction of new categories since they were not regarded as improvements."

For the latest actions like that, please see User talk:Joshbaumgartner, last three items, starting with "Layout clash ...". Additionally, he performed such moves like this one moving "aircraft of the US" to "aircraft from the US", which does not appear to make much sense from a linguistic point of view; it just creates hundreds of moves of connected files and sub-cats. Please be so kind and take care of that ever growing problem. Thank you. --Uli Elch (talk) 11:18, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Unblock for User:Hiàn (alt)Edit

Hello De728631, and apologies for bothering you. I haven't finished going through the files I uploaded (though progress is going well), although I will be needing to use my alternate account for cleanup (and transferring an odd dozen files from I encountered some issues with the files that require mass VFC cleanup. I won't be uploading from Flickr during this time however. Hiàn (talk) 03:00, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

  Done @Hiàn: Sorry for the late response, but I have now unblocked your alt account. De728631 (talk) 21:56, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
Much appreciated De728631. The late response is fine, it wasn't particularly urgent. Hiàn (talk) 22:16, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
