Change Category:Kiev to Category:Kyiv or not?Edit

Note that English Wikipedia has, after several dozens-by-dozens of discussions, decided in the last month that they approved such a rename, despite the #KyivNotKiev campaign is fair for all the English-speaking websites or not, I think this will not make many hurts to our articles? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 06:01, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

Will have to give this some looking into (I'd link to Wiktionary's entry for "copious free time" but, alas, they've deleted it). We tend to be very conservative about renaming categories; it's not, after all, going to affect the way it's spelled in any of our archived articles (except in the list of categories down at the bottom). Which said, we do occasionally get around to renaming categories if it's sufficiently badly needed; for example, in 2018 we finally renamed our category for Pakistan's "North-West Frontier Province" to "Khyber Pakhtunkhwa" — eight years after the province itself was renamed. --Pi zero (talk) 13:27, 21 October 2020 (UTC)
