So, I've noticed that some characters-by-homeworld categories are put as subcategories of Humans. Now, not everyone from, say, Corellia is going to be human, but the nature of having Corellians as a subcat of humans implies that they are. This just doesn't seem very encyclopedic to me -- homeworlds really can't logically be a subcategory of species. Humans can be born and raised on Rodia just as easily as Rodians, and there are plenty of Selonians from Corellia. It seems sloppy to me, since we have Arrizza, a Kurtzen, classified as a Bakuran, which is classified as a subgroup of Humans. I suggest we move homeworlds out of species.

  • Agreed. Species and planetary origin are different things. -LtNOWIS 01:55, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

I notice this still hasn't been implemented, except for a half-hearted note that Coruscanti cannot be classified exclusively as humans. (And that may have been there the whole time, I don't know). Should this be taken to Consensus Track? Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

  • It could be solved here, only that this new concept will take some getting used to after categorizing all Corellians as humans and whatnot. -- Riffsyphon1024 15:54, 24 July 2006 (UTC)
  • So being in the Corellians Cat doesn't automatically mean a character is a human, right? And shouldn't non-humans from Corellia be listed in that Cat for example? -Finlayson 15:04, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
    • On the current system, which still hasn't been changed, several planetary categories (Corellians, Alderaanians, etc) are subcategories of humans, which is false (since Dracmus is a Corellian but not a human, etc), misleading, contradictory, and all-around improper. Removing these categories from the humans categories would allow nonhumans who hail from the planets in question to be listed as Corellians or whatever without this problem.

      • Ahhhh, the sweet smell of success. I've gone in and fixed it myself. Havac 22:34, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
        • Thank you Havac. -- Riffsyphon1024 00:23, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
        • Good deal. Thanks. -Finlayson 13:22, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
