Template talk:Star formation
Proposal for new template listing:
- Star Formation Regions
- HII region
- Solar Nebula
- Classes of Objects
- pre-main sequence
- T Tauri star
- Classical T Tauri star
- Weak line T Tauri star
- Herbig Ae/Be star
- Herbig-Haro object
- Zero age main sequence star
- T Tauri star
- Theoretical Concepts
- Initial mass fuction
- Jeans instability
- Kelvin-Helmholtz mechanism
- Three objections to this proposal (which otherwise is good):
- a wiki nav template shouldn't link outside like the links [http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap951006.html Bok globule] / [http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap951005.html Cometary globule] do, but the original template contains in-wiki links,
- Protostar isn't a class of objects, it's a theoretical concept, more specifically a theoretical model that happens to be fairly well supported by observations,
- the same thing regards HII regions vs. Solar Nebula, HII regions are actually observed objects, while the Solar Nebula is a theoretical concept.

- I know, those were examples. In wikipedia, Cometary Globules don't exist. Thanks, CarpD 7/04/07.
I reverted to uncollapsed
I reverted the template to the uncollapsed form from this version, where the navigation template subsections are all visible. They were changed to appear collapsed, which I didn't like as it reduced ease of navigation. See Template talk:PhysicsNavigation#The collapsed subsections look terrible) where I asked for a collapsed=show parameter. (also this talk page did not align fully left for some reason so I wrapped the above in a div) -Wikianon (talk) 22:10, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
- OK, this was my fault. I didn't notice your comment. I'll fixely the PhysNav. template so it wholly uncollapses when desired. (Sheliak (talk) 06:32, 5 March 2008 (UTC)).
I just reorganized the list here... if anyone objects, please discuss here. Just a few thoughts I had on possibly tweaking it some more....
- The "objects" list seems to perhaps better correspond to "stages of star formation."
- The nebular hypothesis seems to have a lot of overlap with the star formation article, so I don't know if we should separate it out.
- The interstellar medium isn't a single object, per se, so it's a bit of an oddball....but would make sense as a "stage of star formation"
