Is it the alloy itself or the hull enhancement (Monotanium armor plating) that scatters targeting beams? Has it been said that Monotanium scatters targeting beams? Tyrant 13:55, 29 Jan 2005 (CET)Tyrant

I didn't write the article, I just moved the small percentage of original text from the other article to this one. --Gvsualan 14:00, 29 Jan 2005 (CET)

That's nice. However, my question remains for anyone who knows the answer. Tyrant 14:07, 29 Jan 2005 (CET)Tyrant

  • Monotanium armor plating, should be one or the other. The article monotanium already exists and possesses much of the same information, remaining info from this article attached to monotanium. --Gvsualan 13:41, 29 Jan 2005 (CET)
    • One is an alloy and the other a hull enhancement, I vote we keep. Tyrant 13:51, 29 Jan 2005 (CET)Tyrant
      • The hull enhancement is made out of the alloy. If there was an article called hull armor and you wanted to mention that it has been known to be made out of monotanium then it would be acceptable. But we don't have articles called duranium hulls because some ships are reinforced with that type of alloy. Which is basically what this article is saying. --Gvsualan 14:03, 29 Jan 2005 (CET)
        • I don't know of duranium hull to be used in that context. The dialog was "That ship has some kind of monotanium armor plating. lt's scattering the targeting beam." And I know it says 'some kind of' and does seem to imply that the hull was made of the alloy and not the name of the plating, however, the reason I thought we needed an article called monotanium armor plating is because we don't know if monotanium shares that characteristic with the armor. Therefore saying monotanium scatters targeting beams may be misleading. There are certainly other ways to go about this, armor plating (monotanium) or a well worked sub topic. If that is how you want to work this fine, just go easy on the aussumptions. Tyrant 14:27, 29 Jan 2005 (CET)Tyrant
    • I'd say keep the two separate articles for the time being -- and attach this discussion to the monotanium armor plating talk page if there is still a desire to move it to a different title. -- Captain Mike K. Bartel 07:59, 9 Mar 2005 (GMT)

MergeEdit

This still makes for something of a redundant article. "The ship has some kind of monotanium armor plating." It's like saying something is bronzed. The armor plating is made of monotanium. --Alan del Beccio 03:27, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

I agree, it's nothing specific like ablative armor, so this can go. Kennelly 16:38, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
