If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section/Aug-Sep 2018 within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

Bad redirectsEdit

Excuse me, why such out-of-standard redirect? -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 18:46, 3 January 2019 (UTC)

As per this discussion (closed 2 years ago!), there were duplicate categories at the time and Musical group logos from ... was the form used more often. It was also in line with the parent category Musical group logos by country. In fact, that is still the only form used in Category:Logos of musical groups by country, so I wonder what you mean by "out-of-standard" ... --rimshottalk 20:26, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
That was not a discussion, was a toss coin. The main scheme of a category is Topic1 of topic2 [by criterium]. I.e. People of the United States [by city]... SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 15:24, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
I'm not aware of any rule or scheme of categories topic1 of topic2, except where topic2 is geographical in nature (country, city, ...). Now, logos of musical groups isn't worse than musical group logos, but there really was no pressing need to change a category subtree that was consistent within itself. This is quite different from what I did, where I decided between duplicate categories and kept the one that was consistent with its 30 sister categories. In the end, it doesn't really matter. Categories are there to help people find images and both names serve this purpose equally well. The Wikidata entry is at Category:Musical artist logos, by the way :) --rimshottalk 20:19, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
