Removed *Nordics, because it linked to Scandanavian Nordics, which, I figure, are not fictional. Was someone trying to imply that Noordics aren't human or is there a fictional term Nordic which means something. In that case, create the page instead of just the link
- I imagine the reference was intended to be the Nordics of supposed UFO close encounters of the 60s (now overtaken by Greys in popularity). Radix 02:22, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
"being bipedal with hands which include hands and opposable thumbs" This sentence should be changed to "being bipedal with hands which include fingers and opposable thumbs", i will change it.Justinphd 04:1, 1 November 2006 (UTC)
does this article have to include a lenghty story about how the human race developed in the sci-fi world of Star Trek? i mean come on, we don't have to yell from each page to new visitors that the entire wiki project is just an oasis for various PC nerds and the like.. :/ --Astat 18:07, 19 April 2006 (UTC)
Origin of the word?
No explanation whatsoever is offered. From what I know, the two forms are correct, android (greek, andros + eides) and hominid (latin-greek, homo + eides); therefore the word humanoid actually seems incorrect to me. I guess it was coined because the two above mentioned words are already in use. Anybody care to elaborate? --arny (talk) 13:54, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
- "Hominid" is is homo + ides actually - homo + eides gives us hominoid. "Humanoid" is based on a related but distinct Latin work humanus, meaning "human" in the adjectival sense (as in "human behaviour"), either directly or via English 'human'. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:02, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
When is a being not humanoid?
The description of a humanoid leaves a lot to the imagination. The best description is that it must resemble a human in some way -- however, when does something not resemble a human? Are winged all bipedal humanoid? What about quadrupeds? What about beings with no appendages but with a human-like head? —Preceding unsigned comment added by FrederikHertzum (talk • contribs) 00:43, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
There is a separate Humanoid Robot wiki page, so I removed the "Expand section" request that was made in December 2009, and gave a quick summary of the different types of humanoid robots, with a link to the main Humanoid Robot page.Shervinemami (talk) 07:57, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
undoing HappyLogolover2011's bullshit
I tried to undo User:HappyLogolover2011's bullshit, but apparently I can't undo the page move. Someone else should do that. Also, you might want to kick that guy out. --18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:18, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
- Being rude like that isn't acceptable. Whatnots are a species of Humanoid. They are precise and thats what a humanoid word in contrast is. Please do not threaten and get it right.--HappyLogolover2011 (talk) 17:42, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
- ? So you thought it wise to move the page on all humanoids to one particular species? As a matter of interest exactly what is a whatnot? Perhaps you can give some links here as google certainly doesn't seem to know about them (apart from blank muppet heads) Chaosdruid (talk) 11:31, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
