Qantas Flight 1 AFD

I replied back[1] to Dolphin 51 about his use of could have, would have, and rumored. It's true, the Carnival Airlines 727 missed landing at a small regional airport, which has one of its fences maybe 3/4 of a mile from my own present home. In 1996 we lived in another place, but still only a mile to 1.5 miles from the airport. Had Carnival tried touching down, it would have flown almost right over us....William 14:47, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

I used to be a strict inclusionist like him, then I took an arrow to the kneehung out at AfD for awhile. - The Bushranger One ping only 15:39, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

A trick for finding Ryan's socks

I have this[2] bookmarked. All somebody has to do, is search the page(I use Firefox and one of its features allows you to search a page for certain words) for either the word flight or crash two times a day. Not all new crash articles are done by him, but you can check out who the creator is and then go from there if you hear the sound of a quacking duck....William 15:02, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

18 Months (album)

Hello! I see you reverted my edit on 18 Months (album) because I was barred from undiscussed moves. I can understand why, but I am a little angry about that because I did the right thing. It was the only thing on Wikipedia titled 18 Months! I used common sense. Just remember, from now on, if my moves make sense, then please don't revert them. Thank you! Bob Mono (talk) 16:12, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but the discussion closed thus: no moves without going through the requested move process. Period. If you do another move withough going through the WP:RM process again, it will be reverted and you will be blocked. I'm sorry, but until the community regains confidence in you in this matter, that's the way it is. - The Bushranger One ping only 16:14, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

WikiCup 2012 August newsletter

Trophy.png

The final is upon us! We are down to our final 8. A massive 573 was our lowest qualifying score; this is higher than the 150 points needed last year and the 430 needed in 2010. Even in 2009, when points were acquired for mainspace edit count in addition to audited content, 417 points secured a place. That leaves this year's WikiCup, by one measure at least, our most competitive ever. Our finalists, ordered by round 4 score, are:

  1. Conradh na Gaeilge Grapple X (submissions) once again finishes the round in first place, leading Pool B. Grapple X writes articles about television, and especially The X-Files and Millenium, with good articles making up the bulk of the score.
  2. Wisconsin Miyagawa (submissions) led Pool A this round. Fourth-place finalist last year, Miyagawa writes on a variety of topics, and has reached the final primarily off the back of his massive number of did you knows.
  3. Minnesota Ruby2010 (submissions) was second in Pool B. Ruby2010 writes primarily on television and film, and scores primarily from good articles.
  4. Scotland Casliber (submissions) finished third in Pool B. Casliber is something of a WikiCup veteran, having finished sixth in 2011 and fourth in 2010. Casliber writes on the natural sciences, including ornithology, botany and astronomy. Over half of Casliber's points this round were bonus points from the high-importance articles he has worked on.
  5. Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) came second in Pool A. Also writing on biology, especially marine biology, Cwmhiraeth received 390 points for one featured article (Bivalvia) and one good article (pelican), topping up with a large number of did you knows.
  6. New York City Muboshgu (submissions) was third in Pool A. Muboshgu writes primarily on baseball, and this round saw Muboshgu's first featured article, Derek Jeter, promoted on its fourth attempt at FAC.
  7. Michigan Dana Boomer (submissions) was fourth in Pool A. She writes on a variety of topics, including horses, but this round also saw the high-importance lettuce reach featured article status.
  8. Canada Sasata (submissions) is another WikiCup veteran, having been a finalist in 2009 and 2010. He writes mostly on mycology.

However, we must also say goodbye to the eight who did not make the final, having fallen at the last hurdle: Russia GreatOrangePumpkin (submissions), England Ealdgyth (submissions), England Calvin999 (submissions), Poland Piotrus (submissions), North Carolina Toa Nidhiki05 (submissions), Florida 12george1 (submissions), Cherokee Nation The Bushranger (submissions) and Republic of Macedonia 1111tomica (submissions). We hope to see you all next year.

On the subject of next year, a discussion has been opened here. Come and have your say about the competition, and how you'd like it to run in the future. This brainstorming will go on for some time before more focused discussions/polls are opened. As ever, if you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

False truth?

  • Hey BR, what do you think about this? Except JDW, I don't see the other defence journals reporting on this and already the internet is full of PAF supporters pasting such unconfirmed deals in them forums, the last thing I want to see is for it appear here. Thoughts? --Dave ♠♣♥♦™№1185©♪♫® 16:46, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
If JDW's reporting it, I'd say it's legit, although additional sources would be good for confirmation...now, if it was the Russians reporting a contract, that would be another matter (since they have historically proven to be incapable or unwilling to distinguish between an RfP, a "that would annoy the Yanquis", and a contact...!) - The Bushranger One ping only 18:25, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Template:Aviation accidents and incidents in 1900–1909

Something has to be decided about this template. I edited out all the links to non independent articles. The template was TFD but survived the TFD with no consensus. One editor keeps insisting the links should be put back in. I tried twice to solicit other editors to check in on the subject, but other than MilborneOne, nobody did. Their is a talk page discussion, Milborne supports me, the one editor who wants the links back in, one editor who doesn't say he supports the independent article rule, has put the links back in saying "feel free to nominate it again. the solution should be to either (a) add links or (b) delete the template. having an entirely blank template is pointless." Oddly enough, it was the editor I just quoted not myself who nominated it for TFD. Michael5046 has been told more than once to bring the independent to the aviation accident talk page, but hasn't done it....William 14:41, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Hmmm. Well, it looks like most of what he's doing is replacing plain start dates with the {{Start date and years ago}} template. Is there a consensus against this?

  • Yes, I agree that having that "Starting date" template there is fine but it messes things by not observing that non-American airlines tend to use the DMY format. Secondly and as you've said, he has done it without consensus. Lastly, I'm not even sure if he is paying attention to the warnings left on his talk page because he has been warned repeatedly for flouting rules here and yet he has not said a word to acknowledge or address them issues. --Dave ♠♣♥♦™№1185©♪♫® 02:04, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

Works categories

Thanks again, this time for nominating the rest of the Archaeology museum categories. Do you use AWB or another tool to help with that sort of thing? I'm hoping to get set up on AWB again, but can't currently use it either at work or home.

About Category:Tintin: do you envisage setting up Category:Works based on The Adventures of Tintin? That would span the films & games sub-categories, and unofficial books. I think Tintin and the Lake of Sharks should come out of the main books sub-cat but could go into "Books based on..." (with Breaking Free and Travel Diaries) as well as the Films category. There are also films and books that could go in a Category:Works about Tintin. – Fayenatic London 19:47, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Never used AWB in my life. Face-smile.svg I just use Twinkle, nominate them one category at a time, then manually edit them together. As for Tintin, the "Works based on..." would certainly be something worth setting up, I'd think. - The Bushranger One ping only 19:56, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
OK, I'll have a look at TW. I've avoided it so far because I've mainly noticed it when it was doing more harm than good.
I'd like to talk over where the "works based on works" should end up. "Tarzan films" was an example that was mentioned a week or two ago, and I think I see the case for making that "Films based on Tarzan". But what about James Bond? It also started with books, but has become so predominantly a film thing that it would currently strike me as a bit absurd to rename Category:James Bond films to "Films based on James Bond".
Another question is whether something can be based on more than one medium. Star Trek obviously started on TV, but the films (excluding the latest) were definitely part of the canon, explicit continuations of two of the TV series. Some of Category:Star Trek books were based on the films, but as it's mostly true that the books are based on TV, it's acceptable for them to be in Category:books based on television series. But what about Category:Star Trek films‎ -- they are in Category:Films based on television series, but should they go down from Category:Star Trek into Category:Works based on Star Trek?
I see Choster has raised other points at the CFD for Category:Tintin. – Fayenatic London 17:52, 7 September 2012 (UTC)
It's like any tool - in the wrong hands it's a menace, in the right hands it's a lifesaver. As for "Films based on..." I think it'd be common-name; Tarzan is a borderline case, but certainly with Bond the films are the better known media now (it wouldn't surprise me if most moviegoers these days would go "Ian who?").
As for Trek, for instance, I'd argue that the films are indeed "Films based on Star Trek"; TOS came first, and in every case the movie follows the plots and characters of a previous TV series - even the Abrams movie is based on the characters and universe of the original TV show. If any of the movies had an original ship and crew it'd be sticky, but as it is they're all either based on Kirk's [i]Enterprise[/i], or Picard's.

École centrale de Lyon

L'École centrale de Lyon est une grande école d'ingénieurs généraliste française, située à Écully près de Lyon, fondée en 1857 et membre du Groupe Centrale.

Here you have the official spelling drawn from official governmental website :

Arrêté du 2 mars 2001 modifiant les arrêtés du 13 mars 1997 relatifs aux conditions d'admission à l'Ecole centrale des arts et manufactures, à l'Ecole centrale de Lille, à l'Ecole centrale de Lyon et à l'Ecole centrale de Nantes.

Are you convinced ?

Putting upper case letters to every word is a typical Anglo Saxon habit.

For marketing purposes there is a trend for those schools to follow the Anglo saxon habit, but it is not the official spelling.

Are you convinced ?

French spelling rules may apply in French, but this is the English Wikipedia. Please read WP:COMMONNAME. If there "is a trend for those schools to follow the Anglo-Saxon habit" to the point where, in English, they are most commonly spelled using uppercase letters, then Wikipedia's articles should be at uppercased titles regardless of the official name. Also, with regard to your links to the French Wikipedia, Wikipedia is not a reliable source. The best way to determine what title these should be at, though, is to follow the requested move process, present your evidence to the community, and establish a WP:CONSENSUS for the lowercase spelling.

Hantavirus Risk in Yosemite

Hi, I noticed you have decided to continue to uphold the block against User:173.63.176.93 because of reasons that I cannot see. However, I assume it has something to do with his involvement with Yosemite National Park's Talk Page. Recently, I have also tried to add a section acknowledging the Hantavirus Risk in Yosemite National Park, but my edit was similarly dismissed by [[User_talk:Jojhutton#Yosemite_Hantavirus|User:Jojhutton]. If the mention of deaths is the issue, then I believe we can include the information without directly mentioning the deaths.

I have written a new one-sentence draft of this edit in one of my subpages: User:Airelor/Yosemite_National_Park.

Please take a look and suggest any other edits or make any changes as you see fit before I try to add it to the main Yosemite_National_Park page. I am very new here and I know I probably don't know how to follow all the rules and regulations to make changes like this. If you know of any administrators or Wikipedia Users you can refer this draft (or me) specifically to for advice about this matter, that would be very appreciated too. Thank you. Airelor (talk) 21:33, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi there. The block against 173.63.176.93 has expired; the unblock request was declined because (quite frankly) it wasn't a valid one.

A few things

1- Could you please this close this[8] CFD if it hasn't been done already? I'm withdrawing it.
2- A editor has made a deleted article[9] page into a redirect. The AFD result was delete[10] and survived a deletion review[11] also. Can a deleted page be a redirect now? I did a speedy delete nomination.
3- This AFD[12] should be a WP:SNOW in my opinion. The articles look like hoaxes too, and many of the afd participants agree on that issue also. Thanks....William 20:01, 17 September 2012 (UTC)
  • To answer, 1. done; 2. Yes, they can be, but given that the DR explicitly rejected a redirect it's likely to be deleted (I'll let another do it though). However it's perfectly fine, unless explicitly rejected, to recreate as a redirect. 3. Hoaxadar pinging, deletion hammer weilded. - The Bushranger One ping only 20:46, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Have you seen this one: High Barbaree (film)?

An absolutely dreary and boring romance that features one of the most startling aerial scenes ever with Paul Mantz actually hovering in the air (the Stinson folks bragged that their Stinson L-1 Vigilant could actually accomplish this feat, but in a strong headwind, the L-1 could be seen slowly flying backward) as well as using combat footage of the "Black Cat" PBY Catalinas.

...and another one: Today We Live

What a mishmash, a William Faulkner screenplay of a Howard Hawks film, carved up by the studio to add a romantic subtext, the slapping together of aerial photography with the unabashed use of the footage from Hell's Angels, the complete deletion of characters in the final release, and what do you have, a film that no one has ever heard about!

What to do when you find a gold mine of archival footage?

In Task Force (film), Warner Bros. comes across a wealth of archival material in 1948, from the U.S. Navy, including black-and-white footage of the beginnings of U.S. naval aviation, but some of it is current, and in color? Well, why not blend the two together in a lump of a film, that amazingly turns out to be one of the classic aviation films of all time.

Advice sought

Hi I've been trying to track down an article that I saw some time back, 'Old Friends: The Lost Tales of Fionn Mac Cumhaill'. I am the author of the book the same name, which was the locus of the article. I was quite amused by the article as it had quite a curious take on mythology including my approach to it. I thought of if when I discovered today that somebody is going to do a thesis on the book. I wanted to refer her to this page just as a tangential perspective. But I see that it's gone and I followed a link relating to its deletion which led to your talk page. I'm a bit of a novice on Wikipedia so hoping you might know whether deleted articles get archived somewhere that I might still be able to access it? Or even whether you have any details on the writer so I can perhaps track down whether he has posted it elsewhere. I'd meant to make a note of writer details at the time but... Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Question re Deletion of RARE, Association for Rare Earth

Full disclosure, I occassionally consult for RARE, but I did not write the original entry. I did make a few minor edits sometime in the Spring, and I readily acknowledge that I should have taken the time to fix the entire page instead of just making the minor edits. Unfortunately, in the process of working on other projects, I neglected to check my Wikipedia account or check my watchlist, and therefore neither participated in the discussion regarding the page nor went back to add necessary citations and otherwise ensure it conformed to Wikipedia standards. I would simply like the opportunity to make the original article conform to Wikipedia standards and address all of the issues raised by other editors and administrators on the discussion page.

If you will please give me access to what was pulled down, I will keep it in my Sandbox or Special:Mypage/Association for Rare Earth while I rewrite the entire article, fix the broken link, add appropriate citations, and otherwise make it conform to Wikipedia standards before republishing a cleaned up and better article on the organization. This revised entry will adequately addresses the final comments before deletion, including why why this topic/organization is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia. I also will not publish it until you or another administrator review it to ensure all questions raised on the discussion page were addressed and the page is fit for Wikipedia. Ironically, some of what contradicts the final comments before deletion (about being unworthy for inclusion) actually happened after the article was deleted, and much of it happened while the administrators were asking for a debate or answers to questions, though some happened even earlier and were not included on the page. Again, I was distracted working at my real job and I dropped the ball on watching the page or making the entire article (originally written by others) conform to Wikipedia standards,when I made the minor edits in the Spring.

I would simply like the opportunity to rewrite the article correctly, and address all of the concerns previously raised.

Thank you for your consideration of my request. I truly appreciate it, and I hope to hear back when you have free minute.

Copyright

Re: Cream cheese and lox for everyone

Let's get down to brass tacks: onions or no onions? Viriditas (talk) 22:03, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

No onions. Unless they're Vidalia onions. - The Bushranger One ping only 22:07, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
Thinly sliced red onions add a nice zesty flavor. You can also get this zest by using a fresh "everything" bagel (toasted onion, sesame, poppy seed, garlic). Back when I used to eat lox I also experimented with adding slices of fresh tomato, which really adds to the flavor (it's the moisture of the tomato) and if I'm in a really good mood, slivers of fresh avocado. One thing I found is that it is best (you probably know this) if the cream cheese is fairly cold and firm, although imitation cream cheese like Tofutti is just as good. Viriditas (talk) 22:16, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
But what about the new white-chocolate-flavoured cream cheese? - The Bushranger One ping only 00:20, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
I haven't tried it. I've always had an irrational dislike for white chocolate. I'm more of a dark chocolate, antioxidant flavonoids, type of guy. I'm always looking for the health benefit. Viriditas (talk) 07:23, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

WikiCup 2012 September newsletter

Trophy.png

We're over half way through the final, and so it is less than a month until we know for certain our 2012 WikiCup champion. Conradh na Gaeilge Grapple X (submissions) currently leads, followed by Canada Sasata (submissions), Wales Cwmhiraeth (submissions) and Scotland Casliber (submissions). However, we have no one resembling a breakaway leader, and so the competition is a long way from over. Next month's newsletter will feature a list of our winners (who are not necessarily only the finalists) and keep your eyes open for an article on the WikiCup in a future edition of The Signpost. The leaders are already on a par with last year's winners, but a long way from the huge scores seen in 2010. That said, a repeat of the competition from 2010 seems unlikely.

It is good to see that three-quarters of our finalists have already scored bonus points this round. This shows that, contrary to criticism that the WikiCup has received in the past, the competition does not merely incentivise the writing of trivial articles; instead, our top competitors are still spending their time contributing to high-importance articles, and bringing them to a high standard. This does a great service to the encyclopedia and its readers. Thank you, and good work!

The planning for next year's WikiCup is ongoing. Some straw polls have been opened concerning the scoring, and you can now sign up for next year's competition. As ever, if you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck! If you wish to start or stop receiving this newsletter, please feel free to add or remove yourself from Wikipedia:WikiCup/Newsletter/Send.

Old friend

Just by way of a heads up, our old IP friend 97.86.13.16 is back on the Hawaii Five-0 articles, now registered as Cardinalsmyles and still trying to force the same few edits, notably the damned redundant cast table. Doesn't take a rocket scientists to know they're the same person; the IP resolves to St. Louis. I've left them a message reminding them of a few basic practices and suggesting they start using edit summaries and the talk page, so we'll see what happens. They've also been warned about edit warring on The Mentalist as well, and have only been registered since 9/25, so this isn't promising. --Drmargi (talk) 17:28, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Hopefully the registering shows some signs of clue, although I agree it doesn't look promising... - The Bushranger One ping only

AT&T

Thanks for your prompt AFD closure. Since a couple of editors have expressed interest in converting the content to policy compliance, could this page List of AT&T U-verse channels and its history be userfied either to User:Neutralhomer or to my current doppelganger User:IP 12.153.112.21? Yes, I know my username is invalid and it is pending rename, and I have made other errors that I am working on preventing. If there is a valid reason for precluding this typical result of userfication, please advise here. Thank you for your help. 12.153.112.21 (talk) 00:26, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

I've userified the page at User:IP 12.153.112.21/List of AT&T U-verse channels. When your username is changed it will be moved to your new username. - The Bushranger One ping only 00:29, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Thank you again! Could you please also userfy the deleted Talk:List of AT&T U-verse channels to User talk:IP 12.153.112.21/List of AT&T U-verse channels? It is relevant to the content dispute. Thanks in advance. 12.153.112.21 (talk) 14:29, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

The Grey Wolves!

This is my first message to an admin...I'm terribly new to the ins and outs of contributions and submissions and all that. I am only so far a viewer of Wiki.

I noticed when I went to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Grey_Wolves, the page had been deleted by you.

This is a legitimate group whom I'm listening to right now. They have tons of releases and have been out for a long time. They are a death industrial/noise type of group and I remember their page being legitimate before when I had viewed it months and months ago. Do you need references? Is there any way to get the page back?

This is not my group and I don't know the guys whatsoever. Just a fan. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.12.183.226 (talk) 21:51, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

The article was deleted following this discussion. Having "tons of releases" does not equal notability. If you believe there's sufficent references in reliable sources to establish notability, you want to open a file at deletion review. - The Bushranger One ping only 02:26, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

Unblock request of TJ Spyke

Hi Bushranger, could you check if you agree with the provisional unblock conditions I porposed on User_talk:TJ_Spyke#May_2013? Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 07:32, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

They look alright to me, although I would make two modifications: one, adding a specific and explicit prohibition from making any alterations to redirects, not even piping; and two, making it explicitly clear that this is a last and final chance and the next block, if one occurs, will be subject to the Standard Offer and will result in a community ban discussion. - The Bushranger One ping only 08:31, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
The thing I'm worrying about most with this editor is that they seem to be looking wikilaywer ways around the rules, rather than abiding by the spirit. If there is a misspelling in a link, it's obviously counter productive to leave it there (i.e., if there is dislexia somewhere, the appearance needs to be fixed). To be ironclad, I decided for the instruction to fix it to [[dislexia|dyslexia]] rather than [[dyslexia]] to prevent interpetational fixes for redirects, the instruction is simply to never change the target of a link if that link is a redirect. I'll take both suggestions along if they agree and I bring this to AN for discussion. Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 15:11, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Clarify

It's overlink

or WP:See Also. All of those articles are linked via the navbox and in many cases, the articles. As a general rule, the 'See also' section should not repeat links that appear in the article's body or its navigation boxes. Thus, many high-quality and comprehensive articles do not have a 'See also' section, although some featured articles like 1740 Batavia massacre and Mary, Queen of Scots include this section." Is quite clear on the subject....William 23:21, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it's quite clear that it's "as a general rule". It is not, however, required, and WP:CONSENSUS through general editing is that this is included in aircraft articles. If you believe it shouldn't be you need to get a new WP:CONSENSUS through discussion at WT:AIR... - The Bushranger One ping only 23:23, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
The consensus is at the WP:See Also section. Point to me where it is otherwise....William 23:25, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
I'll point to all the aircraft articles per WP:EDITCONSENSUS, and to the part of WP:SEEALSO that says "as a general rule" - "general rules", by nature, are general, not strict. If you believe these should be removed they need to be removed from all aircraft articles, not cherry-picked by manufacturer, and that requires a full discussion. - The Bushranger One ping only 23:29, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
You're the one who should be putting up not reverting GF edits. Manual of Style is very clear. You want that changed, then you try to form the new consensus. Administrators ignoring consensus, just more of the typical bs around here....William 23:31, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
Please assume good faith and refrain from personal attacks. I am following the clear WP:EDITCONSENSUS per WP:BRD. The WP:MOS is very clear that this is a general rule, not a Thou Shalt. Consensus through editing is that these are included, the change would be from that and, therefore, requires discussion. - The Bushranger One ping only 23:33, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
Still can't come up with anything. Edit consensus doesn't say anything about why something can't be fixed even if its been wrong for years. See Also is quite clear and you can't come up with anything better than Editconsensus because you know what you're doing is total bs. Wrong formatting can be fixed anytime. It don't matter if its been there for 5 months or 5 years. You get the new consensus. I'm reverting tomorrow. Now I'm going to watch a hockey game....William 23:39, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
This is not wrong formatting: this is the standard format used by all aircraft articles that has gone unchallenged - thus being accepted by consensus. Your lack of good faith and refusal to listen are dissapointing; I hope that you will reconsider your declared intention to disrupt Wikipedia to make a point and instead follow WP:BRD by discussing your desired new consensus at WT:AIR. WP:EDITCONSENSUS is Wikipedia policy. WP:SEEALSO is not. - The Bushranger One ping only 23:44, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Unsecure account block

Given this and this, should Nasnema be blocked until it can be determined that his account is secure? If his account wasn't hacked, and I presume that it wasn't, the ploy is probably worth a disruption block anyways. Ryan Vesey 20:22, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

If it looks like they're playing the It Wasn't Me card, then it's likely disruption to the level of needing blocking.

Just FYI in case you aren't watching, this user has appealed their block. I have declined the current appeal. However, there is a proposed set of unblock conditions on the page.

Because the CfD for the rename needs to process so that the bot can move the latter category to the former, so that the contribution history of the category can be preserved.
