Diffusing or not?Edit

Should people in Category:Sportspeople from Denver be in Category:People from Denver? I'm picking sportspeople and Denver as an example. In general, are occupations from place treated as WP:DUPCAT or not? Carlossuarez46 (talk) 18:26, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

None of the categories "Sportspeople from …" are marked with Template:Non-diffusing subcategory, no? So why should they? Apart from what's mentioned at WP:DUPCAT, there are no general rules, but there are of course oodles of categories that are marked as non-diffusing. I don't know the process that determines that. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 04:29, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

Request for comment on categorisation of recipients of honours and awardsEdit

Are too many categories for recipients of state honours and awards being deleted? Please see Wikipedia talk:Overcategorization#RfC on WP:OCAWARD. -- Necrothesp (talk) 12:22, 15 April 2021 (UTC)

New title year templates, Copycat updateEdit

For those who don't hang out at Template talk:Title year, I've created some new templates that will hopefully be useful to editors working on categories - {{Title year+1}}, {{Title year-1}}, {{Title year2range}}, {{Title year2range+1}} and {{Title year2range-1}}, the latter using the new {{Year2range}} template. I've also fixed {{Copycat}} so it works off the sidebar again, and it now looks for year ranges as well (although doesn't work quite the same way for them). I've been on a Wikibreak for a bit so I don't think I thanked Pppery for sorting out all the safesubsts on Copycat, I'd got as far as thinking that safesubst might be useful but the documentation was particularly opaque!
