Excellent Contributions[edit]

Thank you for correcting my misunderstanding about the layout of Tahrir Square. Looking at your contributions, it looks like you're doing a great job of editing articles about Egypt at a time when many of us want to learn more. (talk) 19:48, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

is there any particular reason to have parent and child categories mixed, ?? it would be useful to know what you understand by a paretn cat, a child cat, and why you feel a need to have them on the same category page. satusuro 02:03, 11 January 2015 (UTC) As you are still editing, but choosing not to reply, there is not much point in trying to discuss the issue. Also the problem of Indonesian categories is there are some that are also Dutch East Indies - and that needs a discussion as well, but your choice, as they say have a nice day satusuro 02:31, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi satusuro, I didn't know what you were referring to in your first message. Thanks for context on second one. All the "Disestablishments by country by year" cats, such as Category:Disestablishments in Japan by year, are currently doing double duty, hence the 2 "Asia cats" added. They all have the country's "in year" subcats, a clear fit for Category:Disestablishments in Asia by year. However they also all currently have their country's "by millennia, century, and decade" subcats, and so the interim use of Category:Disestablishments in Asia also. Until there is a true parent cat without a date subdivision, such as [Category:Disestablishments in Japan], this seems the best temporary solution.
I've been (very) slowly creating [Category:Establishments in country xyz] as new parent cats for countries' millennia, century, decade, and year" establishments cats. I'm ignorant about the capacity of bots, but perhaps they could do "non-date subdivided" new parent cats for estab. & disestab. by country? What do you think? Thanks—Look2See1 t a l k → 02:55, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
biting tongue/slapping wrist... anyone who takes any time to work on cats should never be challenged... but in fact congratulated - as to setting up anything with a parent child mix in process is fine - so few people take any time or attention to cat building or maintenance, you should be encouraged and go for it - I knew of bots doing things with cats a some years ago, but havent seen in last few years working on cats - I have some enormous tasks with project tabs on talk pages ahead of me, but I darent look (every time i see a red linked talk page on a cat page...) - back to your question, as I have not seen a cat related bot of recent, suspect the easiest is by hand, so to speak... Apologies for nebulous first question, now I understand, all is well satusuro 03:15, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for your encouragement and understanding of interim process. Will continue (very, very) slowly the new parent cats without a date subdivision. Those red linked talk pages on cats/edits, especially those by the same editors for a year on, rankle my eyes. Take care—Look2See1 t a l k → 03:38, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
