Survey[edit]

Feel free to state your position on the renaming proposal by beginning a new line in this section with *'''Support''' or *'''Oppose''', then sign your comment with ~~~~. Since polling is not a substitute for discussion, please explain your reasons, taking into account Wikipedia's policy on article titles.
  • Don't move as the astrophysics is just a redirect to P-nuclei. Articles always have priority over redirects. Put a hatnote at the top of the math topic pointing readers to p-nuclei. D O N D E groovily Talk to me 23:09, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose (edit conflict). Gamma process (astrophysics) is currently only a redirect to P-nuclei, which doesn't mention the term "gamma process". Google and Google Scholar searches also suggest that the probability usage is more common. From WP:PRIMARYTOPIC, a WP:hatnote would seem adequate here. Qwfp (talk) 23:15, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
    • Remark: Yes, P-nuclei mentions and explains the term "gamma process" but it is written as γ-process (and I tried to avoid having greek characters in a page name) --TRauscher (talk) 23:26, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose. A hatnote at Gamma process pointing to P-nuclei is all that is required at this stage. Even this assumes that the lead of P-nuclei gets a minor refactor to give the hatnote and also the existing redirect from Gamma process (astrophysics) a sensible target, see principle of least astonishment: If a link takes readers to somewhere other than where they thought it would, it should at least take them somewhere that makes sense.
