Gem worlds getting their own pages? You know, that's not a bad idea! Welcome to Ultronomicon, newcomer. --Shiver 04:33, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome and support. I saw a partial list of the gem worlds in a walkthrough and figured out how to extract the full list (after a while!). At first, I naively searched high and low for static data somewhere in the codebase :) Plus IIRC, the top 21 mineral planets are all gem planets! Do you like the presentation format? I was thinking about using it in a couple more pages, and it would be easier to change now rather than later. Once the format is ready, I would like to add the same data to the rainbow world page, as some of them are quite hostile while others are calm. CyberSoul 04:58, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
I can't speak for the other admins but that all sounds good to me. This wiki could use more RU and bio collection information. --Shiver 17:42, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
The topic was briefly discussed a long time ago (see the top of Talk:List of planet types) and it seems that the decision was made to replace all the separate pages that existed at the time (ie Water Worlds, Ruby Worlds, Yttric Worlds, Auric Worlds, Lanthanide Worlds) with the single list. If each new page is merely a repeat of the couple sentences found at the list, then I don't think each planet type requires its own page. The one thing that CyberSoul has added, which wasn't there before, are lists of location and information about instances of those planet types. Does that addition warrant the re-creation of the individual pages? I'm not certain, but I currently lean towards no - however, perhaps it would be appropriate to have a List of Ruby Worlds and similar pages with that information in a more wikified type table (something along the lines of User:Jacius/Planets maybe or an expansion of the table at Rainbow World with columns for the additional planetary data). The downside to this proposal for me is where do we draw the line of inclusion, in other words how do we choose which planet types to do lists for - do we just do it for the exotic worlds? --Fyzixfighter 17:58, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Quasi-Degenerate worlds might not deserve their own page if the highest mineral yield on any of them is only 1625 RUs. I don't feel too strongly about this, and will wait to see what other admins say. --Shiver 20:23, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

I won't defend it much, but they do carry only exotic minerals, so 1625 RU fits in just 65 cargo space. But Pellucids have only exotics too, and I would agree that they don't deserve a page (unless all types do). "Only" and 1625 RU together puzzles me though, as the 90% percentile for mineral yield on a single planet is 913 RU. Wow, and just for fun the 50% percentile is only 150 RU. --CyberSoul 00:21, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
