Category:Humor OR Category:Humour

Just spotted this gem. Two categories based on the same thing, with only a spelling difference. I don't care whether the American or British spelled one has to go, but we don't create two pages for the exact same thing.

  1. Merge with a possible redirect replacing the deleted page, kinda like web colours and web colors.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 10:02, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
    This has been voted on before. Someone find it. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 10:32, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
    Neither pages had a "this page is up for deletion" tag in their history for the last 2 years. Either no one bothered, or it has been a very long time.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 10:38, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
    Found. The nature of the request is different though and does not in any way resolve the "2 cats for the same thing". Also some people suggested a deletion/merge/redirect of the American one. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 10:45, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
    As DDR. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 09:18, 26 November 2010 (UTC)
  2. Merge and redirect - there really is no need for both categories. For the sake of consistancy, the British spelling should take precedance with Category:Humor redirecting to Category:Humour, just like the web colours example above. ~~ Chief Seagull ~~ talk 11:14, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
  3. Merge "Humor" in to a redirect, and "Humour" as the main - the previous deletion vote showed this was the will of the people, it should be carried through.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 11:29, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
  4. Delete Humor, don't leave a redirect or people will use it as a category (explained further in the precedent case linked above). -- LEMON #1 14:44, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
  5. Merge 'em. Then delete the American one. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 14:48, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
  6. Merge (keeping humour) - Generally I prefer to keep the one that's shorter, like wikicode does with colo(u)r, but there was a strong consensus in the last vote that humour was more fitting, and we may as well think of this as a delayed decision from then. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 21:47, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
  7. Delete - As above. -- Cheese 20:43, 15 November 2010 (UTC) That's what I get for skimming. Merge humor into humour. Damn yanks and your laziness. -- Cheese 20:51, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
  8. Merge - humor into humour. Britain rules supreme! --Karloth Vois ¯\(°_o)/¯ 20:48, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
  9. Merge (humour pwns humor) -- Spiderzed 21:00, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
  10. Merge - Merge both of them into a new category with a name that doesn't have regional differences in spelling, such as "Funny", "Joke", "Jest", etc. ("Joke" being my first choice, since it does not connote the degree to which something is humorous, as "Funny" would). There are dozens of other words that can be used which would not have this issue. Why complicate things unnecessarily? Aichon 08:47, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
  11. Merge - As aichon.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 11:26, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
  12. Merge ^^^^^ - MHSstaff 16:49, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

I count this as being 2 votes to merge them and make Humor a redirect, 4 votes to merge them and delete humor, 3 votes to merge them in to a new category, and 3 votes to merge in to Humour without any preference on whether to keep humor as a redirect or not. Therefore, the categories should be merged and Category:Humor should be deleted. This may take a while...--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 20:47, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Dw, I did it a few days before the vote was finished. -- LEMON #1 00:28, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
I guess now would be a bad time to mention Category:Humorous Images?--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 03:29, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
I dunno :( My spellchecker always said "Humourous" images wasn't the right spelling anyway, and wikipedia says even in languages that prefer "humour" even they usually dont bother using "humourous" over "humorous"... so i dunno. -- LEMON #1 01:21, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I realised that when I was redirected to category humour and started trying to move pages from the category to itself. Really confused me for five minutes. :P And Giles, that's for images, whereas this is for pages, so I see no problem with them existing.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 08:30, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

Several empty Categories

1175. That's the amount of categories we have. Many, many require cleaning or deleting. If anyone is inclined to do some janitoral work that gives no credit or satisfaction whatsoever feel free. A start:

Category:Law Enforcement

This is an odd one. In theory, it's a cool, interesting method of keeping a unified system for PK reports among groups. In practice, it's been dead for 3 years and is more or less a dupe of Category:Police Groups (which, while pretty pov is just harmless RP value and isn't cited anywhere to feign authority). I liked the idea but it's basically just a dupe. -- LEMON #1 11:12, 25 October 2010 (BST)

Category:Mercenary Groups

I guess I'll add a quick description and explanation. Usually, I'd just decategorise this and slip it through A/SD as a crit 4, but it's featured at Category:Groups#Groups so I think it may add something to the staple of UDWiki's group classification system, so I'd like to ask the community opinion.

Personally though, it's an underused category that has only niche appeal beyond categories like Category:Organisations and Category:Alliances. The bit that makes this an even sillier category IMO is the idea that only difference between, say, a 'mercenary' and a 'helpful group' is the idea that mercenaries get paid, which isn't possible in UD, so the whole thing is RPer baloney. Keep in mind I'll obviously decat before delete if this passes so that won't be an issue in your decisions hopefully. -- LEMON #1 11:12, 25 October 2010 (BST)

Stuff I've found during Orphan Template Massacre

I'm finding a lot of pages that clearly don't add anything to the wiki. All fall under Crit 1, 2

  1. Infected Swarm/News - not used, no content.
  2. Kempsterbank Neighbourhood Watch/Levels - an attempt at unused files loop
  3. Rhodenbank Civil Defense Corps/Current Operation - Only a few lines of text. Not current in the least.
  4. The Expendables - Crit 1
  5. Nintendorks/MrFacePlanningArea - crit 1
  6. Mossad/header
  7. Mossad/current
  8. The Renegades/Renegade Scout - Crit 1
  9. The Renegades/Safe House Camander - Crit 1
  10. Tour Necrotech/udtool - Crit 1

    To be honest, I respect the power of community vote here, so we should see it through, but the second the vote is over, the author can feel free to blank the page and if a sysop comes across it that minute, it'll be gone without even needing a vote.
