[edit] Everything Else DVD Series

A real long time ago, two categories were created: Category:strongbad_email.exe DVD and Category:Everything Else DVD. In January 2007, it was decided that these categories should be renamed to include "Series" at the end (see discussion). Since categories can't be moved the same way as pages, two new categories had to be created: Category:strongbad_email.exe DVD Series and Category:Everything Else DVD Series. "strongbad_email.exe DVD" was redirected to the new "Series" name, but the same didn't happen for "Everything Else DVD". Now, 14 years later, both "Everything Else DVD" and "Everything Else DVD Series" categories coexist. Was this intentional, or was the first category supposed to be redirected to the second one?

Category:Everything Else DVD contains some (but not all) Everything Else-exclusive content, with no subcategories. Category:Everything Else DVD Series has subcategories for all 3 DVDs, but no articles. I think everything in the first category should be moved to the second, and "Everything Else DVD" should be redirected to its new "Series" name, like what happened with strongbad_email.exe. This will keep everything consistent between the strongbad_email.exe and Everything Else categories.

This isn't a particularly controversial change that needs consensus or anything (I assume), but I'm bringing it up on the talk page anyway because a) it'll take a lot of editing (and spamming recent changes) to change the categories for all these pages, b) I don't want to have to undo it all if someone opposes, and c) just in case there's a reason this category still exists that I'm unaware of. I'm also posting this because d) if I don't get a response, I'll probably do it anyway and use this post as justification in place of a bunch of overly-long edit summaries.

I think that is a very valid point! Looking at them Category:Everything Else DVD probably should be merged into Category:Everything Else DVD Series. It's not a huge amount but this would be a perfect job for User:The CheatBot! To that end I made the request here! --Stux 09:57, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
