New Categorization System

There will be an upcoming overhaul to Galactic Crucibles. Don't worry. There are no large scale lore changes. Instead, it will focus on organization.

Note that this is a work in progress.

Category format

Just to reaffirm, categories are plural. The first word is capitalized, while the remainder words are lower cased.

Factions

The main idea is to group pages by faction, rather than by species. So instead of Vaikan conflicts, Eteno conflicts, etc. it will instead be FMASN conflicts, EIT conflicts, etc.

This also means that navboxes will be split up as well. Rather than being general as a species, they will be more specific. As per above, factions will have their own infobox.

The civilization infobox will be combined with the faction infobox. "Civilizations" and "Governments" will be reclassified as "Factions".

Planets and moons

Planet categorization will be redone entirely to get around the planet/moon discrepancy. More types will be added as necessary.

Star systems

Star systems will see the addition of a few new categories. These will have to be added manually. Notably they will be the following:

History articles

Articles about historical events will be called "Events". Articles that are titled "History of X" will be called "History". Timeline articles will be categorized as "Timeline" (an exception to the plural rule).

Characters

Cateogories such as "Vaikan individuals" will be called "Vaikan characters".

Psi and I will mostly be the ones doing it. For the time being, just keep this in mind when creating new articles.

Where should we start?

The planets and star systems should be first as they are a lot easier to reorganize. We can get to the civilizations after that.

I'll create a "battle plan" for the bot. It may take a bit but it'll be a bit easier awell.

New update:

I've decided to deprecate the Civilizations category as it has proven somewhat redundant. The only real use for it was to categorize hub pages, but those have since been overtaken by portal pages.

For now, portal pages will have a secondary use: to serve as a holding place for ideas until the user is able to go into more detail to create separate articles.

So remove the civs category. Can we keep the Civ Portals cat?

It will have to be renamed to something else. Currently, it's only being used for portals about certain species so why not "Category:Species portals"?
