(Mostly "National parks of Foo".)

This is a lot like the "transport" vs. "transportation" case, but in this case the vocabulary variation seems to have an even stronger justification. -- Beland 02:25, 15 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Should we agree on a generic term, like protected areas or designated areas, for cases where a country has national parks, national wildlife refuges, national historic sites, national marine protected areas, etc, which will all be in one category? Michael Z. 05:10, 2005 Jan 17 (UTC)

"Designated" is too vague. "Protected areas" (which is the name of the Wikiproject) is probably best. "Conservation area" may imply things which are not true of all types of parks. Using small letters for "national parks" may imply that it includes all types of nationally owned parks, while capitalized "National Parks" indicates a specific designation.

Apart from Category:Hong Kong country parks and special areas (which is backwards relative to its siblings), the subcategories look pretty good to me. Since we seem to be agreeing that it's okay to have subcategories with different names when different names are legtimately used, I think it's okay to leave things as they are aside from changing the parent category. -Aranel ("Sarah") 19:21, 12 Mar 2005 (UTC)
