Sci-fi TV shows?[edit]

If sci-fi novels are being subcategorized, might the same not be done for sci-fi tv shows, of which several occur as direct children of this category? -- कुक्कुरोवाच|Talk‽ 13:49, 31 May 2004 (UTC)

There's fewer of them than the books, so it's hard to say. IMHO, if it has both a movie and a tv show it definately belongs on this page. But the specific show or specific movie would go on those respective pages and/or under the universe subcategory. Really, it's a judgement call that should change when things start looking cluttered. Seems OK now, but... --ssd 21:01, 31 May 2004 (UTC)

Speculative fiction[edit]

I'm trying to work out if speculative fiction deserves a different category. I just placed "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius" in the present category, but it's not exactly science fiction. -- Jmabel 15 Sep 2004

Are there enough articles where the distinction is clear enough? --[[User:Aranel|Aranel ("Sarah")]] 23:40, 15 Sep 2004 (UTC)
Speculative fiction would make a fine parent category for Category:Science fiction, I think. I don't know if there are many articles that could fill it, but it would be a fine way to unify Category:Science fiction, Category:Horror, and Category:Fantasy. -Seth Mahoney 02:00, Sep 16, 2004 (UTC)

Template:Science fiction[edit]

I dont know where to note this but here, but Template:Science fiction may be placed at any sf related article, if i understand the purpose of navbox templates on WP. I think the goal is for every article to be templated, even if the article is not IN the template itself. this provides for an additional means to navigate for every article.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 07:28, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
