Category:Open content companies[edit]

Hi, you created Category:Open content companies as "not a subcat of Category:Open content". Why not? It seems to me that it should be. – Fayenatic London 10:53, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

Yes, because a company is a subcat of company, not of content. Content is something that can be digitally transfered across tcpip, a company cannot be therefore is not a subcat. Just because it is related to does not make it a sub category see Subcategory James Michael DuPont (talk) 15:43, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
But even though food and drink are substances that can be ingested, whereas Category:Food and drink companies/Category:Food- and drink-related organizations cannot be ingested, yet the latter is a valid sub-category of Category:Food and drink. In Wikipedia, sub-cats are used for broader relationships between topics than the sub-set principle stated in the mathematical article subcategory.
For a recent discussion on how sub-cats do have shifts in meaning, you might be interested to see Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Categories#A_big_problem_with_our_category_structures. – Fayenatic London 21:29, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
I dont think this is a good idea. Is this official policy? James Michael DuPont (talk) 23:29, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
I admit that WP:SUBCAT doesn't say so. I have started a discussion at WT:CAT on this. Feel free to raise your objection there. – Fayenatic London 22:35, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
