Danprater (talk) 20:01, 29 December 2010 (UTC) There are 3 phalanges of the thumb. The image at top has 4. If someone has a proper cartoon of the human hand, please insert it (or specify that this image is from some kind of weird alien).
- Sorry no, the image at the top clearly shows the thumb has two phalanges (and a metcarpal bone). --Fama Clamosa (talk) 21:17, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
Hello to all! I am proposing a merge from the following articles into this article:
This is for the following reasons:
- These three articles are small and there is significant crossover of information (see eg [Distal phalanges]])
- The main article and the content in general would benefit significantly from having all this information in one place. This would allow an article to reflect on the nature of these in context, rather than in isolation.
- This topic shouldn't be obscured by virtue of being on six separate pages (this page, the three I have proposed, and Phalanges of the hand and Phalanges of the foot)
- These topics may receive more attention by being mentioned in the main article, which will hopefully improve the content and article's overall quality.
- The articles, if needs be, could be re-expanded at a later date.
Proposed merge with Phalanges of the foot
Unnecessary and fragmented to have separate articles, could easily be presented on the main phalanx article. Fragmentation reduces quality and leads to needless duplication of content. LT910001 (talk) 02:38, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
