Colony Edit

Most all articles concerning "penal colonies" are categorized under "colonies", but they only meet that definition by the conventional lable they've been given. These are not settlements with the goals of building a new world and replicating cultures, but facilities run by governments for punishment and rehab. If nobody objects, I'd like to recategorize articles such as New Zealand Penal Settlement and Tantalus Penal Colony as "agencies". --Aurelius Kirk 15:02, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

I think that Aurelius Kirk did some excellent work on this article. I also think he is absolutely right to recategorizing the articles noted to agencies; while called "colonies" they do not fit the use of the term for categorization purposes. Aholland 15:08, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Thank you. I'm sure the "other penal colonies" listed need some attention, but they're not familiar subjects to me. Should the Rura Penthe info on this page be moved to Rura Penthe article? That seems to cover both planet and penal colony already, but the penal info is split between the two pages. It should be all here or all there, but I'm not sure of the best fit. About the Cat changes, I'm really not sure of the propriety of just up and changing something like this after a few minutes on the Talk page, but this really seems like no-brainer, so I'll go ahead and change them. --Aurelius Kirk 15:46, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

I would use your best judgement on Rura Penthe; I can see arguments either way. I suppose a brief summary could be here, with the bulk on the Rura Penthe page? Just see what works and go for it. Aholland 16:36, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
