OccupationsEdit

Occupations (Nov 2005)Edit

    1. Military ranks, like Colonel or Lieutenant, now a category thanks to some courageous individuals.
    2. Titles, real titles given to someones name, like Administrator, Governor or Jal.
    3. Positions, not really given to your name but an "occupation" you occupy with some authority (like Arbiter of Succession, Records officer, Science officer, Third officer, Captain's personal guard)
    1. Occupations, like you suggest which includes bartender or barkeep or maybe Chef (although that is also a title) or even astronaut.
  • I'm not really suggesting these sub-categories, I'm just saying that "occupations" doesn't really cover it either.--Tim Thomason 15:46, 8 Nov 2005 (UTC)
    • Well I'm out of here again for a few days, so I'm not sure what we can do with this, as you have a point about the divisions of this--and at the same time, I really don't think it is appropriate, as it is currently, to have bartender and comfort woman categorized as "titles"-- in fact, I would almost rather see them not categorized at all. I suggest we browse through wikipedia's category structure for ideas. A significantly toned down version of what might be found in Category:Occupations at Wikipedia might be a good start. --Alan del Beccio 00:35, 9 Nov 2005 (UTC)
  • I say we separate them. Take the titles category and create a sub-cat for military ranks under that cat. Then create an occupations cat and have positions as a sub-cat of that. I suggest this because a rank is a form of title, while one holds a position within an occupation. Make sense? --From Andoria with Love 07:19, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Professions (Apr 2006) Edit

We have some professional categories (Ambassadors, artists, Athletes, Authors, musicians). I would like to propose some new : politicians (ruler, ambassador subcat,...), scientists (from Starfleet and other organizations), engineers (from Starfleet and other organizations), Medical practitioners, merchants, spies. - Philoust123 18:05, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

Occupations (Sept 2006) Edit

Mentioned above but never clearly resolved, Category:Occupations (ugh, which I guess is also some peoples hobbies, in some cases) would be the supercategory, to include the subs Category:Ambassadors, Category:Artists, Category:Athletes, Category:Authors, Category:Entertainers, Category:Military personnel, Category:Musicians, Category:Scientists, all of which are comparably categorized on wikipedia, however, I am not sure if Category:Time travellers and Category:Religious figures exactly fits this mold. Then of course our dabo girls, bartenders ect would fall in the main cat. --Alan del Beccio 17:55, 16 September 2006 (UTC)

Or how about Category:Vocations, with a subcategory of Avocations implied, but not explicitly broken out? -- Renegade54 20:36, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
Well, I based this on my research of Wikipedia's category tree and although they have many more branches, what I presented above was a "trimmed" down version of what they had that seems most efficient.-- Alan del Beccio 23:31, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
Ok, let's stick with the trimmed-down Wikipedia category tree, then. If listing hobbies under Category:Occupations really bothers you (and I understand how it might), we could always create a Category:Hobbies (assuming there are enough to justify it). -- Renegade54 23:41, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
As I stated above, can we not have a category for occupations and a sub-category for positions, as well as a category for titles and a sub-cat for ranks? --From Andoria with Love 07:19, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
Sounds perfect. This is a massive category on Wikipedia, and I see no reason why it cannot be used here. --Alan del Beccio 00:20, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Starfleet Positions Edit

I sort of want to create a subcategory for all (Starfleet) ship positions (Armory officer, communications officer, transporter chief, tactical officer, and so on). What does everyone think? --Golden Monkey 19:31, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

I think you might want to suggest it on the New Category Suggestion page. :) --31dot 19:36, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
