Talk:Race classification

I'm not sure what to make of this page; is there really a use for a page like this? Especially the morphology section; it's all rather vague, and would there ever be a use to go to a page of all humanoid aliens?

I do see some potential for the "which side are aliens on" list, but maybe it works better as a table, listing the race name, their initial attitude, what attitudes they can take in the course of the game, and a comments column. — SvdB 16:13, 2 June 2007 (CEST)

The thing that bothers me about this and the Alien psychology page is that it is too subjective in its choice of grouping and classification to those groups. I do agree that the "Attitudes" section could be modified into a useful form. IMO the other information could be useful if there was a canon taxonomy, or a much discussed consensus of what the taxonomy would be, though the organization of this information in such a way does get a bit crufty (obsession with minutia and all that). Perhaps better kept in the namespace of the user who finds this interesting. --Fyzixfighter 16:41, 2 June 2007 (CEST)
This page is not subjective, but it would be best if it were put in a table, indeed. "Alien psychology" should be deleted, agreed. Valaggar 19:45, 3 June 2007 (CEST)
This page doesn't contain enough interesting or useful content. It should be deleted IMO. --Shiver 19:49, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
I removed the physiology section. The rest may be salvageable in some form.
Btw, "doesn't contain enough interesting or useful content" in itself isn't enough reason to delete a page; if the topic itself is relevant enough, then extending may be more appropriate than deleting. — SvdB 00:20, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
The parenthetical explanations which are right next to almost every species name on the friendly/neutral/hostile list is sloppy. Is there a marker of some sort for pages which are in obvious need of a rewrite? --Shiver 00:04, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
No, but feel free to make one. Please use the same name as on Wikipedia (see wikipedia:Template:Cleanup-rewrite; but don't copy the contents because of license differences), and add it to Ultronomicon:Templates. — SvdB 12:14, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
