Yes Im aware that many of the structures of categories (including the Ship ones) on Wikiree were created before there was a global team or without their co-ordination and that these have never been reviewed or approved and that the landing categories have been misused, unused, misnamed , neglected, confused and confusing
I have spent the last 3 years or so / sorting / cleaning / correcting / renaming / sourcing and organising - Ship Categories and their Voyages mostly to/ from New Zealand and but also related voyages to / from Australia so that at least these were consistent (as best as could be proved/provided)
Yes I'm aware of the changes that have now been proposed and commented on and are now being actioned - I have no problem with changes to the Landing Categories for the Australian Voyages if that is what is needed to make it easier for them to to found/accessed and added to profiles
"l (Oct 19), Last call ( Nov 1), Final Announcement (Nov 8). tagged with "Categorization", "Project Leaders", "Australia", "Immigrant shipping"."
This was my original point - that I look after the New Zealand Shipping Categories (and may of these include Ships and Voyages that cross over into the Australian ones ) - but Im not Part of the Global Categorization Team, a Project Leader (NZ Currently dosnt have one as such), the Australian Team or tagged into Immigrant Shipping (as I have already said) and the only G2G post that included New Zealand was one that was only spotted as it was closed.
"I'm curious as to which NZ shipping categories you are referring to, that have been affected, to my knowledge we are only modifying categories that relate to Australian ships, (as a project). "
- Actually some of the modifications are being done to Ships Categories in general (Not just the landing Categories) - that was also what I was commenting about.
The Immigrant Ships to ... Categories were set up at the Global Level to link Ship types and to help WikiTree users to search & find a Ship (and not just a voyage destination / type / timing etc) to a particular part of the world but these got corrupted with just Voyage Categories being added instead of the Actual Ship - This Category is being removed for Australia (and Australia Only)
I do realise that You, Deborah & Steve at least have been aware of Cross-overs and but there appear to have been others that have just been trying to follow the leaders but havent quite got it right
