Diane Zamora[edit]

Do you think that the decision to have Diane Zamora be the title of that article (even though there were two people who killed Adrianne Jones) was correct? See Talk:Diane Zamora - I know BabbaQ added a lot more about Zamora. Does this mean the title should be about her? WhisperToMe (talk) 03:28, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

WhisperToMe (talk · contribs) I am curious why you are asking me. The article doesn't ring any bells. AIRcorn (talk) 04:42, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
I asked because I noticed you commented on a similar kind of article, related to people known for committing a criminal act. Usually it's named "Murder of John Smith" or the like. WhisperToMe (talk) 17:33, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Referee categories[edit]

Hi, thank you for your work on referees. I just closed Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2017_January_4#Sports_officials/referees/umpires and trust that the outcome is something you can work with. Note that I left open the possibility of re-using "Sports officials", if necessary, as a parent category.

While cleaning up, I noticed that you had previously moved the page Category:Sports officials from Georgia (country) to Category:Georgia sports officials, giving the edit summary "Standarise". Likewise, Category:Sports officials from Northern Ireland to Category:Northern Ireland sports officials. If you look around the other parent categories, you will see that Category:People from Georgia (country) and Category:People from Northern Ireland use those naming formats, which were thrashed out at CFD in times past and have since been followed in many precedents.

So, please don't move categories without prior discussion. For simple moves that would standardise things, CFD's Speedy page (shortcut: WP:CFDS) is the way to do it. Categories listed there are usually processed promptly after two days.

@Fayenatic london: Thank you for closing this and especially for the personal notification. I was checking in on that discussion occasionally, but had not bothered for a while and might have not noticed the closing had you not left a message here. As I am typing this I have not yet looked at your close, but given you attention here I am sure it is perfectly fine. This was my first real foray into categories so even though I would consider myself an experienced wikidpedian I did not know that we were supposed to check all parent categories for previous discussions and then start a discussion instead of boldly (or semi-boldly) moving them. I assure you my name changes were innocently done as I was just trying to make the sub categories in the sports officials by country consistent. To be honest I am not even sure what is controversial about changing Category:Sports officials from Northern Ireland to Category:Northern Ireland sports officials and although I have some recollection of seeing the Georgia (country) vs Georgia (state) debates I did not realise this would be a problem with categories. Maybe if there was ever likely to be a Category:Alabama sports officials I could see the point in specifying that we are talking about the country. Sorry for the mini rant and thanks again for the personal message. AIRcorn (talk) 06:17, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
Hi, no problem. I see that you acted in good faith, and I should have acknowledged that in my message. As for Sports officials, I see that BrownHairedGirl has converted these to category disambiguation pages for now. – Fayenatic London 11:58, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
