Moving categoriesEdit

Hi, @RockerballAustralia:. I noticed you moved a category last night and then changed the individual articles for the category name. In future if you want to move CAT:Foo to CAT:Bar, please follow this order.

  1. Create CAT:Bar.
  2. Add CAT:Bar to all the articles that had CAT:Foo.
  3. Sight those edits.
  4. Create Bar and redirect it to CAT:Bar.
  5. Redirect Foo to CAT:Bar.
  6. Move all redirects to CAT:Foo to CAT:Bar (by making use of Special:WhatLinksHere/Category:Foo)
  7. Delete CAT:Foo.

Doing the other way creates significant trouble, and can lead to undesirable consequences.

Ah. There’s more to it than what I did. I stopped at step two. Shall remember for next time (when ever that is). —RockerballAustralia contribs 04:22, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
Appreciate it. Though if you are going to rename a category, best would be to let me know -- I can prolly use pwb for that. (The order mentioned above is important)
