Can I make a complete list of Races? Edit

There are some cases where we don't know which quadrant a race is from and as a result, the race won't be listed in any of the four "By location" races and cultures pages. I propose making a combined list of all races seen and mentioned in Star Trek on the main Races and cultures page. --NetSpiker (talk) 08:17, October 17, 2016 (UTC)

The category:races and cultures should be a complete list, there's no need to duplicate it manually - Captain MKB 19:14, October 17, 2016 (UTC)

Category:Races and cultures is not a complete list because it only includes those races that already have wiki pages. The Melikaz race currently does not have a page and we don't know which part of the galaxy its from, so it can't be included in any of the "By location" lists. --NetSpiker (talk) 07:31, October 19, 2016 (UTC)

The category has a section to fill out a manual list of missing articles until they are created. I still maintain that a complete manual list would be problematic and unwise, and I haven't seen a response from you that addresses that concern - Captain MKB 22:38, October 19, 2016 (UTC)
Additionally, races from uncertain quadrants do have a list and category: Milky Way Galaxy races and cultures. If they're from another category, there is Extragalactic races and cultures. If they're from another dimension, the title of the article and list should be Extradimensional races and cultures. If theyre from another reality there is of course Alternate reality races and cultures (or Races and cultures (alternate reality)) but my point is there are places for nearly all to be listed without having to manually maintain a large list. -- Captain MKB 22:41, October 19, 2016 (UTC)

Actually, this is the first time you’ve said anything about it being problematic or unwise and you haven’t explained why. Having a complete list on a single page would be easier to use than a list divided into 6 or more pages. --NetSpiker (talk) 05:10, October 20, 2016 (UTC)
