technical[edit]

This page was tagged as needing "a better explanation of technical details". I have tried to provide them. If any parts are still unclear, please specifically list them here. — Reinyday, 11:43, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Title[edit]

I think the title of the article breaches the conventions. See: Wikipedia:Naming conventions#Special characters.

I can't understand why this title anyhow. --Sugaar 14:26, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

I think the correct title should be "paragroup". This is what Karafet et al 2008 use. Wapondaponda (talk) 03:39, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Ancestral haplogroup[edit]

I have read somewhere that paraphyletic haplogroups can indicate ancestral haplogroups. And that it's useful in determining ancestral lands (places of origin) of a certain haplogroup. Due to my lack of deep knowledge in the subject, I'm not sure whether this is implied within the technical info in the article, or needs mentioning (if this piece of info is true). --Xevorim (talk) 01:42, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

RfC: Incompatibility between the standard scientific notation for paragroups, and links[edit]

Standard scientific notation for paragroups is to use an asterisk after the name for the haplotype. The very conciseness which makes this a very useful standard, reduces its usefulness as a link
Therefore, currently, there is no standard for both noting a paragroup, and usefully linking to the paragroup article which explains this distinction, without saying, Haplotype paragroup, which in my limited understanding seems to be either a tautology or an oxymoron (I told you it was limited)
I fear my option may be marginally acceptable, and I was hoping someone with a better knowledge of the subject might either endorse them or have a better idea
Current status: * The current status. If you missed that, I can't say I am surprised, it is a link shown as * after the colon and before the word, "The" on this line. Paragroups are marked with an asterisk, which is pipe-linked to the redirect page * (haplogroup), creating about 30 or so double redirects
Option: * paragroup My favorite. Might be better to use the abbreviation, 'para', instead, to save space.
Option: your idea here. Including haplotype paragroup, if that works
