Why "Bagpiping" instead of "Bagpipes" which would be consistent with the rest of Category:Woodwind instruments? --Craig Stuntz 18:52, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

Because bagpiping is the act of playing the instrument, and it includes bagpipers. I also didn't choose "piping" because it's ambiguous, despite it being the term most of us would use. --MacRusgail 19:36, 6 April 2006 (UTC)
I'm with Craig, the "Bagpiping" category has gotten pretty large, and it would make sense to make "Bagpipes" a subcategory. Everything would still be linked together and easy to find, but someone who was looking for individual types of bagipes wouldn't need to scan past the listing of associations, publications, etc. Anyone have a strong argument against subdividing further to "Bagpipes"?

If it's clarified: bagpiping is the above category dealing with all bagpiping issues, and the subcat "bagpipes" is for the actual names of instruments. There can also be a subcat for "bagpipers" or "bagpipe players." Badagnani (talk) 18:50, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
Cool, since we're on the same page, I separated out the 36 individual bagpipes into their own linked category, and also moved some bands into "Pipe Bands". Also added a couple types of bagpipe from the Persian Gulf that weren't yet covered. It took forever to track down even the name of the Bahrainian bagpipe that I was 100% sure I'd listened to an album of in college: Jirba. MatthewVanitas (talk) 20:09, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
