Vidiians is a duplicatte of the singular version of the article. Delete or redirect. Logan 5 21:02, 26 Sep 2005 (UTC)

  • Redirect. — THOR =/\= 21:29, 26 Sep 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete, plural forms of a species' name is designated for lists. The old designation would have "List of Vidiians" or "List of Vulcans", but we have since dropped the "List of" and just go by "Vidiians" or "Vulcans". To expand on that example, "Vulcans" is a list of all named individuals of the Vulcan species. In order to create a list of species, I believe it has been agreed upon that there should be at least a dozen, individuals of said species. Since there has only been 2 or 3 Viidians, I still say delete. --Alan del Beccio 23:25, 26 Sep 2005 (UTC)
    • I'd like to bring up a point -- i don't think there are enough unnamed vidiians to fill a separate list article -- but perhaps enough that they could be listed in the vidiians page. I'll try to do it up now in case we decide to keep it. -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk 00:06, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)
      • There seem to be 7 unnamed Vidiians: Vidiian #1+2, Vidiian surgeon and commander from "Deadlock", Vidiian Guard #1+2 from "Faces" and Vidiian Captain from "Fury". Then, there's also Chakotay as a Vidiian from "Faces" and the Vidiians in "Coda". If you need screenshots, I've got them all here on my computer. --Jörg 00:46, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)
        • Works with what I proposed below. --Alan del Beccio 00:51, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Probably not the place to bring this up, but I was thinking maybe we could or should do that with all species that don't have enough to fill an "unnamed X species" article. Instead of placing "unnamed X specie #1" in a subsection of the "X specie" (non-list singular) article about a species, as most unnamed individuals are currently placed, place them in the "X species" (plural) about its' people page. That way we can keep everything organized with one of three and a half options: 1) Species page (Vulcan), 2) Individuals of that species (Vulcans) 3) Unnamed individuals of that species (Unnamed Vulcans), 3½) Special circumstance: consolidated all species that don't fit into the first 3 groups individually into #2, and then subsectioned into 'named' and 'unnamed' (like the old "List of Vulcans, etc., used to be organized before we created Unnamed Vulcans). For consistancy, this would include all unnamed individuals of the species as well. The only time we would need the "Unnamed X species" article is in the case, like we have now, where we have an extremely large list of names, such as the preexisting list of Humans, Romulans, Klingons, etc. --Alan del Beccio 00:39, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I completely agree. -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk
