Punjabi Rajputs[edit]

I notice you are changing cats after commenting at the Cfd. Please revisit that to see my response before making further changes. User:Sitush/Common#Castecats might be worth a read also. - Sitush (talk) 14:17, 23 December 2017 (UTC)

Moving Arthropods by year of description[edit]

Please stop moving "Arthropods by year of description" categories to "Protostomes ..." until it has been established that there is a consensus for this. Did you mean to move them to "Animals ..."?

If we are going to sort out these categories, let's do it properly. See e.g. these. Peter coxhead (talk) 07:22, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

Arthropods by year of description were deleted/upmerged by cfd (nominated by me) in 2014, and so these are all out-of-process recreations. I merely upmerged the arthropods to their immediate parent, which was in some cases animals and in others 'Protostomes' (which have not as yet been brought to cfd as far as I know).

Sure, but the creation of the "Protostomes" categories is as dubious as the re-creation of the "Arthropods" ones. The whole subject of how to categorize by year of description needs a thorough discussion and then sorting out. "Animals" is long established and clearly has a consensus, so I think we should keep to that pending this discussion. Peter coxhead (talk) 17:18, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
I am certainly not in favour of 'protostomes'. 'Spiders' would probably be fine if fully implemented but these editors dabble here and there and dash on. Oculi (talk) 18:43, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
Indeed they do, and they cause chaos (I'm currently working on flora distribution categories, which used to have structure and a rationale, but which have had effectively random extra levels/categories added). I do a lot of work on spiders, so I'm somewhat sympathetic to separating them out, but there aren't that many spider articles; 'arthropods' seems to me a more sensible first move.

Among many others this editor has created. I find myself with two conflicting reactions. The first is that categories are not, as far as I can tell, of any great use to most readers, so if it keeps busy editors who might otherwise be messing up content, well, leave them to it. The second is exasperation that the work done on categories by sensible editors is at least partially trashed. The problem for me is that taking these categories to CfD discussions one-by-one would consume too much of my time for too little return. Is there any easy way forward?
