Category talk:Factions

I've noticed that there are two different categories for factions: (Category: CBT factions), and (Category: Factions); and that some CBT factions (i.e the Federated Suns are on both. Should the categories be combined into one giant Factions category, or should the two stay seperate, with only non CBT factions such as the Republic of the Sphere in the latter category? --Workerbee 10:23, 4 June 2008 (CDT)

This situation had been created before I got here. The way you described is basically the way I have been doing it. --Scaletail 20:13, 4 June 2008 (CDT)
I have suggestion. Why not create Minor Factions. This would cover independant worlds, splinter groups like the Steel Wolves, Senate Alliance, Pirate nations, etc. That would keep big factions like FedSuns, Lyran Commonwealth, Comstar, etc from being mixed up with them. -- Wrangler 21:48, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm on the fence, there. I'd have to see some arguments for and against it. There's something to be said for ease of search (both for new and experienced readers) when opening up the most general category to peruse the contents. I guess I'd have no problems with 'additional' categories, as long as they were also provided for in the general ones. For example, Hendrik Grimm would be appropriate for a 'Pirate Nations' cat, I'd guess, but I'd absolutely expect to see him in the general 'Pirates' category (as well as the 'Periphery' category.--Revanche (talk|contribs) 22:38, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
I don't think there are enough factions to warrant it. --Scaletail 00:38, 7 August 2009 (UTC)
Oops; what I get for not reading the two posts before Wrangler's. I'm not one for separating factions between 'CBT' and, essentially, 'Other' sources. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 01:04, 7 August 2009 (UTC)
I have only just come across this problem but I am for merging the two pages. --Dmon 19:05, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
