MergeEdit

Oppose I don't like this idea of condensing M/A into list pages. This is an independent, individual unit that can have its own individual article, just like every other concept that appears as its own individual article on this site. This certainly isn't how it works in a "real" encyclopedia, and I see no reason why it should be any different here. We are not the Borg. --Alan 01:10, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

We should not merge things just because we can. Nor should we keep things separate just because we can. If a number of short articles are very much interrelated, then sometimes they are better together than separate. I think that is true for the separate articles we currently have on temperature scales, and the four articles we have on ESP ratings.
As for "real encyclopedias", they certainly do have entries that sometimes just refer you to a more comprehensive entry else ware in the volumes, and we should not let the constraints of paper encyclopedias dictate how we organize an electronic encyclopedia.
With redirects able to point to sections, there is no good reason not to group certain things, any article can still link to Onkian, and the redirect makes it work just fine as a link to the correct section of this article, and then instead of having to click on Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin, etc those items are right there where they can be easily compared. —MJBurrageTALK • 12:51, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
