What is this Category good for? It collects items, that absolutely not belong together! IMHO nonsens! TomAlt 23:05, 15 March 2006 (UTC)

I guess, this category is good for finding pictures on certain topics. Payton. 193.30.140.85 09:58, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

My question is: Where would I find metros, i.e. pictures of underground stations, trains etc.? Would it make sense to create a new subcategory Metro? I have a bunch of own photographs made in the metros of Cologne, Munich and Frankfurt. Payton. 193.30.140.85 09:58, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

The Category "Places" actually shouldn't contain any images directly - it's supposed to group together other categories for "places".
As for subways: Category:Subway was deleted a while ago - don't know why. Perhaps re-created it and add it to Category:Public Transport or Category:Rapid transit (and don't forget to add existing subway pages/categories there, too, like Category:Munich U-Bahn, gallery U-Bahn Frankfurt, etc - also look into Category:Rapid transit in Germany). But maybe first ask User:SPUI and/or User:Shizhao why Category:Subway was deleted. -- Duesentrieb(?!) 10:20, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

OpenPhoto[edit]

I removed the following from the category description:


Template:Mld

-> OpenPhoto


There are several reasons for this removal:

  • The text does not describe the category, which is what category descriptions are for.
  • Commons:Free media resources is the appropriate place to list media sources.
  • It seems odd to single out this particular category and this particular photo sharing site for this type of linking to a vaguely related tag, particularly since the tag is really too generic to be meaningful.
  • Most of the photos found by following that link appear to be non-free.
  • The text takes up a lot of space and detracts from the actual content.
