Taking into account the new factions in Atlas Rises, should this page be changed to "races" or "sentient species"? --Trenzalore456 (talk) 03:21, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

It's more likely we would just want to add the new groups to this page. Which specific groups would you recommend adding? Ddfairchild (talk) 04:21, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
In my view, we could move the content of this page to a new page named "Races" (since they refer to the Travelers as "fourth race" in-game) and create a new page called "Factions" or "Guilds" with information regarding the Explorers, Mercenaries, and Merchants' Guilds (plus specific pages for each guild).
I think it would be better for the guilds and races pages to be separate since they refer to different aspects of lore and gameplay. --Trenzalore456 (talk) 09:26, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
So, is there any decision on this matter? Trenzalore456 (talk) 23:31, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

Here is how we should move ahead on this:

1) create new page(s) for the guilds as they are indeed a new feature. If you feel that having a separate page for each of the three types you mentioned (and there's enough information to make good pages), is also worthwhile, then I'm good with multiple pages; one for Guilds in general, with links to the various pieces.

2) The term "faction" has become so synonymous with the NPC races in the game, that changing this current page to Races would probably be more puzzling to readers than helpful. We do have individual "faction/race" pages for Gek, Korvax, etc, and should probably continue that as new races are added (such as happened in Atlas Rises with the Travelers).

Ok, sounds good for me. I'll create those pages once I have the time to work on it. Trenzalore456 (talk) 00:11, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
