NovelistsEdit

Since Category:Writers covers script writers, Category:Authors covers "Trek universe" writers and we still yet have writers of novels and related books uncategorized, Category:Novelists seems to be the last remaining tag to give these individuals. I figured I would post this, as I noticed someone had categorized a novelist for a Trek novel in the Authors category along with a bunch of Trek universe authors. --Alan del Beccio 08:35, 16 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Support, although we might want to think again about giving those "meta" categories a common prefix, just like we're giving all "maintenance" categories the prefix "Memory Alpha". "Star Trek" was suggested when we had this discussion before. This would free up the "Novelists" category for an eventual later use to categorize in-universe characters that wrote novels. It would also avoid the rather artificial distinction between "Writers" and "Authors". -- Cid Highwind 22:02, 5 Oct 2005 (UTC)

SubcategorizationEdit

As we're adding more and more authors, artists, etc to these categories, it might be nice to split them up a bit more. Some sub-category ideas I had included:

  • Comics artists/authors
  • Novel artists/authors
  • Game artists/authors
  • Reference works artists/authors

The categories, as they currently exist, are at Authors and Artists. Of course, there will be some duplication between the sub-categories, but that's perfectly fine and acceptable to my mind. -- sulfur (talk) 20:02, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

Sounds like a good way to classify everything involved. 31dot (talk) 20:29, February 4, 2013 (UTC)
