Why can't we move this to Deneva? Do ALL Earth colonies have to have the word 'colony' after it? What's the actual point of that policy? -- Harry 17:55, 2 Jan 2005 (CET)

Since there's been no action on this in over 18 months, I figure I should bring it up again. I agree this should be merged with the Deneva article. --TimPendragon 05:15, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
Support. The name "Deneva colony" was never used in the episodes, this should be merged and made into a redirect. I have added the template. --OuroborosCobra talk 05:22, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
Agreed/support. --From Andoria with Love 05:52, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
"Proper Name Alert"! This article is called "Deneva colony", not "Deneva Colony" - so it is about some colony on Deneva, not necessarily one with that specific name. To answer the first question in this thread, "colony" is added to the article title to distinguish an article about a colony from an article about a planet ("Deneva"). The question that has not been asked (here/yet), is: "Do we need both an article about a planet and a colony located on it?" My answer: "Depends on how much information we have about the colony itself. In this case, it could be merged, but a redirect (to be categorized) should stay behind." -- Cid Highwind 09:38, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
I understand that this is not a proper name, but takea look at Federation colonies. You will see a dozen colonies that don't go to [[PLANET NAME colony]], but rather to [[PLANET NAME]] colony. The planet article then talks about the colony. --OuroborosCobra talk 12:48, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
Yes, I know that. What I was trying to say is that both ways of dealing with a situation like this should be possible, depending on context. If both would make proper, separate articles ("if there's enough to tell about planet and colony independently"), then create both. If not, then combine the info on the planet article, but create some "colony" article as a redirect that can be categorized as Category:Colonies, so that we don't have planets ending up on those list categories...
