List of Flemish Ministers of Welfare and HealthEdit

Hi,

Is there a reason why there are 4 different powers in the same wiki listing page? Well-being and Family, Public Health, Social Affairs and Poverty Reduction. Can someone change this as it is not really useful in the context of Wikidata.

Category scopeEdit

Hi, does anyone have any thoughts on Category:Flemish sportspeople and Category:Walloon sportspeople? Just wondering what the scope of them is intended to be. At the moment there are 85 articles in Flemish and 41 in Walloon, but if this is a geographic category, almost all could be moved into provincial subcategories (Sportspeople from Hainaut, etc) leaving these containers; alternatively if it is meant to be more of a cultural origin indicator that can be used in addition to a geographical province, the number of members should be much higher as there are about 1800 and 700 in those Province subcategories, many of whom will be obviously and veribiably Flemish/Walloon by culture. I initially added this to the talk pages of the categories a couple of weeks ago but no response (not surprising as not many editors watch Category pages). Crowsus (talk) 09:40, 31 August 2022 (UTC)

I agree that this category tree doesn't make any sense and is a total mess. I do not think it is unreasonable to say that "Flemish" and "Walloon" are subjective identity-based categories. They may even be considered an ethnicity by some people. Currently, given the way that the category tree works, a foreign national who happens to have been born in Antwerp is "Flemish".
Except where "Flemish" refers to the medieval County of Flanders (e.g. Flemish artist), I think we should scrap the whole lot. What is the point of Category:Flemish artists (before 1830), for example? —Brigade Piron (talk) 17:06, 31 August 2022 (UTC)
