Post creationEdit

Was there a discussion or proposal to create this category? --OuroborosCobra talk 20:44, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

There was, as shown here. --31dot 20:49, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Should be copied here then. --OuroborosCobra talk 20:53, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Can I just cut and paste it, since it isn't a merge?--31dot 20:55, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes. That's how categories are done. Cut and paste from MA:CS, remove it from there, and we're good to go. :) -- Sulfur 20:57, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
Looks like I got beat to it. :) --31dot 21:01, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Category suggestion: LegatesEdit

We have a Guls category, so why not a Legate category? There are 11 of them, according to the Cardassian ranks list, certainly enough for a category.--31dot 01:55, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Why don't we go all the way and make a Glinns category as well? They can both be subcats of Category:Cardassian military personnel like Category:Guls is. There's not as many, but might as well be consistent. – Cleanse 02:46, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. Support on both Legates and Glinns. ---- Willie LLAP 03:41, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm not opposed to a Glinns category, but I did not suggest it because we do not have a Starfleet Ensigns category, Lieutenants, etc. and I thought that only higher ranking officers would merit a category, as lower ones are covered by Cardassian military personnel, for example. But again, having one is OK with me.--31dot 23:40, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

What is the procedure once there seems to be agreement on a category? Can it just be created, or does an admin need to do it? I'll create this, if that's OK.--31dot 00:51, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

The policy is rather vague in this regard.
Memory Alpha:Category tree: "All categories must be approved by a user consensus, similar to the deletion consensus, except in this case the consensus must be reached before you create a category here on Memory Alpha."
I don't see any reason to prevent anyone creating a category, so long as there's consensus on this page after a reasonable time (say a week). If this isn't currently allowed, it should be.– Cleanse 03:05, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
