I want use this for automation/bots. If a postcard has only the "Category:Postcard" and "Category:Dresden" then we can move it in this category, which we found in this property. sk (talk) 05:28, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support after the change of datatype. Mike Peel (talk) 20:56, 15 January 2020 (UTC) Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose with the current datatype, I would support if it is using the 'item' datatype to link to a category item per category for people born here (P1464), category for the interior of the item (P7561), category for ship name (P7782) and others - then it will auto-update when Commons categories are moved, rather than requiring manual updates. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 06:32, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
    @Mike Peel: Please change it. I don't know the right value for this datatype. "Item"? Thanks. -- sk (talk) 08:49, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
    @Stefan Kühn: It looks like @Conny: changed the type, I've updated the examples and a bit of the description, does that look OK to you? If so then I'll switch my !vote to support. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 20:10, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
    @Mike Peel: That's fine. Thanks! -- sk (talk) 20:52, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose already there are too many "Commons xxxx category" properties. How many more? Proposing endless more properties is not a good or sustainable mechanism. We need another, more scalable way to do this. Jheald (talk) 16:52, 20 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment whats the point of structuring Commons categories. There was some general agreement, that categories wont be structured and tags are an alternative system to file sorting on Commons. --Juandev (talk) 15:32, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
