I need your helpEdit

@Oculi: Can you find information as to what ever happened to the building of the former Benghazi Adventist Hospital. Was it torn down or has some other business taken over the building. I can't seem to find this information if it even exists.Catfurball (talk) 20:36, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

I've no idea how one would go about that. Sorry. Oculi (talk) 23:10, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

Category:Organizations based in Nigeria has been nominated for discussionEdit


Category:Organizations based in Nigeria together with the subcats using 'organis/zations' have been nominated for possible renaming. A discussion is taking place to decide whether this proposal complies with the categorization guidelines. As you created at least one of the categories concerned, you are most welcome to add your comments at the category's entry on the categories for discussion page. Thank you.

Orphan categoriesEdit

I think you are wrong to say topic categories are not subcats of set categories. Most company categories have a wide variety of articles in them - about people, products, law suits, controversies, and almost all topic categories lead to subcategories of people and organisations. Categorisation is messy. Rathfelder (talk) 09:26, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

Exactly so. Topic categories such as Category:Buzzfeed will generally contain set subcategories, but not vice versa. Eg Category:Media companies of the United States should only contain articles about companies and not contain any people or other non-companies. (Clearly various editors have added eponymous categories in error but there is no need to compound the error.) Oculi (talk) 09:50, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Well we cant leave Category:BuzzFeed as an orphan, so how shall we categorise it? I dont see that eponymous categories need special treatment. Many, maybe most, categories have an eponymous article. Why should this be treated differently from, for example, Category:Marvel Comics? Rathfelder (talk) 10:12, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
That's why we had Category:Wikipedia categories named after websites as a parent (which was not originally a maintenance category). I can't think of any correct parent for Category:BuzzFeed. Eponymous categories should not be listed as 'uncategorised'. Oculi (talk) 10:30, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
