Suggestion Create a Birthplace List

This idea is to help people making new characters by giving them a wiki page or some place on the wiki that they can look at and get a list of what places are suitable for the birth location for their characters. This could be implemented by assigning a struct data field to place pages like locations and planets that is for the earliest year someone could have reasonably been born there (e.g. when there was a permanent colony). The birthplace list would compile this info in a central place, sorted by year and could be optionally filtered by faction.

I feel like this would be essentially the same list as the list of Locations.

The list of locations does not supply information about usability as a birthplace in any fashion. In fact, it's like playing the lottery since there are so few places a character who is, say, 30, could have been born.
