The larger droids, from DSD1 dwarf spider droids to Heavy Artillery Guns, are listed as vehicles although they are only crewed by integrated droid brains. I think we should change that, but some of you seem to disagree. Let's settle it here. — Aiddat (Holonet) (Contribs Log) NR Seal 22:19, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Here is for voting for/against changing calling automated units only droids, and not vehicles

  1. They are droids, not vehicles. — Aiddat (Holonet) (Contribs Log) NR Seal

  3. Am I voting in the right section? Do we need two different consensi? Anyway, a vehicle transports living beings. A droid doesn't. Lonnyd 22:32, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Uh, how long do we have to keep this on? — Aiddat (Holonet) (Contribs Log) NR Seal 22:35, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Why is this an either/or proposition? Things can belong to more than one category. "It's a droid! It's a vehicle! Wait, it's *both*!" jSarek 00:23, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

I agree with JSarek it doesn't have to be either/or. Sulgran 00:25, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

BothEdit

  2. The phrase "droid tank" implies that certain droids appeared to be considered vehicles. Fleet Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) Imperial Emblem 00:47, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
  3. Support. If a droid is big enough to perform a role comparable to a vehicle, it should be regarded as one. jSarek 07:04, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
  4. Support see below Lonnyd 09:48, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
  5. Both where appropriate, such as Droid tanks. Finlayson 14:19, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

  • I will grant that something that is an automated, intelligent vehicle that holds living beings can be both. But I think that should be the qualifier. I understand that there are alot of gray areas here. But I think a droid tank is just a droid. Just a big droid on wheels. Lonnyd 09:49, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
  • For everyone's enjoyment, further complicating my answer, "vehicle" from miriam-webster.com:
  1. A device or structure for transporting persons or things; a conveyance: a space vehicle.
  2. A self-propelled conveyance that runs on tires; a motor vehicle. Lonnyd 10:09, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Well, maybe I'll agree if this only means Persuader-class tank droids and bigger, instead of DSDs and bigger. I don't even think tri-droids are like vehicles, but GATs are. — Aiddat (Holonet) (Contribs Log) NR Seal 11:53, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
  • An automated vehicle should at least be something large that would carry people if it were not automated, imo. -Finlayson 14:19, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
