Traits

I have found a new method of sorting Species by trait without overwhelming the pages with categories.


by including thet code on the category pages . . . . they will not appear on the actual page.

Thus we will be able to sort through five fingered species, without the category "five fignered" appearing on each page, or red colored species, or various otehr traits . . .

The question is . . . is whether we should do this or not

you can see an example of this here

I dont know if this is a good idea yet, so I think it should be discussed.

I am creating this blog to discuss what I think is appropriate content for this wiki, as there seems to be some dispute over it. First and foremost I think that this places is a place for . . . alien species! But it is a place for other things as well.

All alien technology should be allow…

Moving Categories

I am in the middle of the incredibly PAINFUL process of reshaping the categories here . . .

I dont ask for help . . . but if you are editing a page and it is categorized as "Sapient Beings"

change it to "Sapient Species"

and only use one category for humanoid species

"Humanoids"

Slow, and steady . . . but we will get there people!
