Merge[change source]

I believe that the both Category:United States stubs and Category:American Geography stubs should be merged into a Category:United States Geography stubs.

The reasons being that:

  1. . It appears that almost all the pages in Category:United States stubs are geography-related anyways, and
  2. . Category:American Geography stubs is tad bit ambiguous - it could encompass all of North America, for example.

Even if we don't make a new category, there is still a huge overlap between the two existing categories that we need to narrow it down. -Avicennasis @ 15:52, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

  • Oppose: All the geography items tagged with {{US-stub}} should be tagged with {{US-geo-stub}} to avoid the overlap. {{US-stub}} is for anything American-related that's not a bio or place. Category:American geography stubs is auto-generated and the same title as the corresponding concept on EN. Nothing ambiguous about it, as countless discussions here and on EN have asserted.

If you replaced {{US-stub}} with {{US-geo-stub}} on all the articles about locations, you'd take Category:United States stubs from 1,556 to 103. I purposed the merge since at first glance it seemed there would only be 10 or 20 articles left, which didn't seem big enough for it's own category. However, since I've done the math now, I agree that 100+ is decent enough to leave the category alone, and just end up re-tagging everything else.
Merge request withdrawn. :) -Avicennasis @ 22:12, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
American Geography stubs should however be renamed to United States geography stubs. Because American means all of North America (and South for that matter). So the category name is ambiguous. I would note that it does not have the same name as the en version. The en version is called United States geography stubs. -DJSasso (talk) 17:46, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Per the above, is there any objection to renaming "American Geography stubs" to "United States geography stubs"? -Avicennasis @ 22:10, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

As long as there are no stubs for, say, Canadian geography articles hanging around in the "American geography stubs" category, sure. But if they're all about US geography, go for it. --–Mûĸĸâĸûĸâĸû (blah?) 03:08, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
