Prince Hall lodges

I'm looking again at Category:Prince Hall Masonic Lodges and notice that the parent Category:Prince Hall Freemasonry has several buildings in it. Should these be pushed down into the lodges category, or should the lodges category be upmerged? Mangoe (talk) 15:08, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

Again we have the problem of editors conflating the term “Lodge” (which is akin to “chapter” in other fraternities) with the building the Lodge meets in. Most Lodges are not notable enough to merit categorization (although a few are). What we need is a new sub-cat for the buildings... I would suggest: “Category:Masonic buildings (Prince Hall Freemasonry). Blueboar (talk) 15:52, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
Well, looking at Eutaw Place Temple (which is a real eye-catching building, btw) its notability has nothing to do with the masons; it's a historic synagogue building which the masons bought when the neighborhood changed. I'm not terribly sanguine about categorizing it as a masonic building. Mangoe (talk) 20:41, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
I've pushed the other buildings down into the "lodges" subcat. Mangoe (talk) 21:05, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from []. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials.
