Category:Computer workstations[edit]

Argh, I was too quick with this one -- realised a couple of minutes later that Category:Workstations was a better name for the cat ... --Wernher 23:05, 9 Nov 2004 (UTC)

No, "Computer workstations" is a better name. The term "Workstation" is also used in contexts that have nothing to do with computers. —AlanBarrett 18:03, 11 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Hmm, I must admit I was in a dilemma when choosing the category name. I thought the general term would be better as it was more concise, and because "workstation" without a context qualifier is more often used meaning "computer workstation" than other types of workstation -- which when I think of it may just be my own geekly bias... So, I guess I wouldn't protest if someone now feels the urge to move the affected articles from Category:Workstations to Category:Computer workstations and do a {{cfd}} on the former instead.

Given Alan's comment that it's used in other contexts, is it a close enough meaning that Category:Computer workstations would be a natural subcategory of Category:Workstations? --Grutness 06:53, 18 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Well, might be, might be. Perhaps we should just as well try that. Barring a majority of protests I'll fix it, incl the article moving, once I get my sysop/admin status (in a week or so, existing admins willing). --Wernher 02:07, 20 Nov 2004 (UTC)
I'll leave this here a little while longer, then. (And hey, more people interested in maintaining this page would be a good thing.) -[[User:Aranel|Aranel ("Sarah")]] 00:15, 22 Nov 2004 (UTC)
I couldn't wait any longer, so I just went ahead and moved the bl**ding articles. :-) Hopefully I won't be reprimanded. Shall we consider this matter closed, then? --Wernher 05:48, 22 Nov 2004 (UTC)
