Thank you for message on my talk page. I see the problem that you are pointing out. The reason of the problem, many subcategories under Category:Netherlands, is related to the source data used for category creation. Almost all categories were created from UN/LOCODE lists and hierarchy of the lists is poor; for example, Japan's list have 1 layer (Subdivision code) and Netherlands have no layer. Now I'm growing Japan's seed categories little by little, by hiding names of road terminals/fishing ports under names of cities/towns. If you have time, would you please grow Netherlands' seed categories little by little? At the start of work, I think it's better to put 12 provinces at the head of subcategories by using sort key like this; for example, Category:Honshu has [[Category:Japan|*2]] in it and I can rewrite it to [[Category:Japan|*Honshu]] if I want to make it alphabetical order under *.
As to Template:Den Haag, though I don't know how it works in detail, general users will not use the link "What links here" to find Den Haag photos. I think it's better to create the page in main namespace rather than template namespace, and use <gallery> tag to show photos or make it redirect page to Category:Den Haag simply like the page Japan which has "#REDIRECT [[Category:Japan]]" in it. -- Tatata 01:21, 23 October 2007 (EDT)
Great work on maintaining Netherlands' subcategories! -- Tatata 21:50, 24 December 2007 (EST)
Hello Rein N.!
Thanks for the photo corrections
I just wanted to thank you for correcting the tags on my images Redbear's contributions
At first I couldn't figure out who had edited my images, or why. Now I understand.

Hi Rein, I'm not sure what you mean by "Not all under M." Would you care to join this discussion on how to organize our map categories? It would be good to develop a standard procedure for map categorizing so that we don't use unnecessary effort going back and forth. --Peter Talk 01:07, 8 June 2009 (EDT)
I'm pretty sure Wieckse is Dutch...? http://www.bottledbeer.co.uk/index.html?beerid=143 Jpatokal 21:49, 16 August 2009 (EDT)
Admin on fr
Hello! As you already know, fr is a mess. Since you are already active in the clean up effort, I'd like to just go ahead and give you admin privileges there. Would this be ok with you? --Peter Talk 20:59, 19 August 2009 (EDT)
Thanks for the advice, I had no idea I was supposed to fill something in there! And yes, I speak Dutch, as I am Dutch :)

Misschien kunnen we voor de Nederlandse provincies de categorieën South-Holland en North-Holland maken (dus met het streepje), dat zijn de echte namen van de provincies in het Engels (en anders dan South Holland, Illinois, die zonder streepje is. Globe-trotter 08:42, 21 December 2009 (EST)
Hi, Rein. Last year, you marked Image:Katherine1.jpg, Image:Katherine2.jpg, and Image:Katherine3.jpg as copyright violations but didn't explain why, or provide a link to the originals. Can you elaborate? If you aren't sure, I would suggest nominating them for deletion and seeing what others think. LtPowers 15:16, 24 August 2010 (EDT)
