Hi again, it seems that there are a number of category names that begin with the word "Olympics". Given that this wiki is all about the Olympics, that is redundant. It would make far more sense to drop the word from the category names. Unless you plan to feature non-Olympic athletes, for example. A better way would be to use the nationalities of the athletes, unless this wiki only plans to feature American athletes. — [[User:Game widow|Game widow]] 19:21, December 11, 2010 (UTC)

:Hi again, there's no quick and easy way to rename categories, but i have a tool that can do it quite quickly. If you are interested, you can also check out [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser AutoWikiBrowser]. Otherwise, i'd be more than happy to help you do the renaming. Just leave me a list and i'll make it happen. — [[User:Game widow|Game widow]] 23:19, December 13, 2010 (UTC)

:Thanks for quick response and help! Looks like the obvious ones right now are to redirect

:Alternatively, I could just delete the Olympic_* categories since I already made the new ones. Let me know your recommendation! FYI I deleted Category:Olympic_Schedule since it just needs to be a page instead for now. [[User:Steph.Palmer|Steph.Palmer]] 23:36, December 13, 2010 (UTC)
