Category talk:Public Works

Return to "Public Works" page.

Can you explain this category? It has two dams, a quarry, a reservoir and a satellite dish... there doesn't seem to be any logical grouping. If you're simply talking about "big structures" then make a category for that, same as you could for skyscrapers or utilities. It is best practise to put a sentence at the top of a category page explaining what goes in it, even if it is stupidly obvious sometimes. For example, Category:Vehicles explains that individual vehicles go in the category, as opposed to just subcategories and lists. Gboyers talk 00:22, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Ah, yes, point well taken. I've been intending to change or at least explain this category's name for a while; just been trying to figure out how! :-) I'll get on it. EganioTalk 06:35, 24 June 2008 (UTC)


this category descripes industral works such as the Sherman Dam I thaught it easier rather then creating more articles Chip2007 1:58 24 JUne 2008

How is a satellite dish an "industrial work"? Same goes for dams and reservoirs really - that would mainly be factories and refineries etc. But if you want a category about industrial works, why not call it "Industrial Works", instead of Public Works? I'm not saying you're wrong, just saying it still doesn't match up properly. Why did you say "in GTA San Andreas"? This is surely for all GTA games. Gboyers talk 20:41, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
I agree with Gboyers here. The designation is, at best, vague. I have been toying with names on-and-off for some time, and would greatly appreciate any suggestions. As Gboyers alluded to, the original idea here was to create a category to cover prominent manmade structures (i.e. things players are going to notice in-game). I am actually toying with the idea of moving these things into Category:Structures. What does everyone think? EganioTalk 00:36, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
