Nice template! Good initiative! ... said: Rursus (bork²) 15:37, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

When do topics become obsolete science?[edit]

Over time many of the topics here - especially some of the 'Exotic compact star' topics [eg Quark star · Preon star · Q star · Fuzzball · Boson star · Gravastar · Dark energy star · Black star · Electroweak star · Eternally collapsing object etc] may need to be moved to the 'Obsolete Science' category. This will need monitoring.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

True. Hopefully the associated pages will be modified to reflect the current consensus.—RJH (talk) 19:51, 28 April 2010 (UTC)


Catalogues are not listed here, like on the French template. Perhaps this should be included into "lists" or should we add a new category? --Io Herodotus (talk) 09:07, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

Suggested revision of "Dwarf" listings under Luminosity class[edit]

Specifically, white, black, and brown dwarfs have no place there - these objects are not stars, but stellar remnants (white, black) and substellar objects (brown), and do not belong to the dwarf (main sequence) luminosity class in spite of their names. -- (talk) 10:32, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
