Alot of merges[edit]

Sould orange, white-yellow, blue dwarf articles all merge with this. These articles seems like its too little to write, and they don't contain much contents.--Freewayguy Call? Fish 03:00, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

None of those are commonly used terms; I don't think they should even have articles as stars (in fact, they don't). What do you propose writing? This is just a disambiguation page anyway -- it shouldn't have any substantial content. —Alex (ASHill | talk | contribs) 03:25, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

So what should we do with orange, blue, white-yellow dwarf star articles. Those is stubs, and not much to write. Should we R# to main sequence article?--Freewayguy Call? Fish 00:34, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Orange dwarf redirects to K V star: I think that's appropriate. Blue dwarf is a disambiguation page, again appropriate (I think) because the term most often refers to a blue compact dwarf galaxy, but rarely refers to blue dwarf (red dwarf stage). White-yellow dwarf doesn't exist for good reason; is anyone really likely to type that by accident? I don't think any action is necessary or advisable on any of these. —Alex (ASHill | talk | contribs) 00:42, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

What about FV star, or OV star. Should they be emrge to any articles. They seems way too stubby, and very little we can write.--Freewayguy Call? Fish 01:02, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

My feeling is that pages for the individual classifications are worth keeping as separate pages, although you're right that there is a limited amount of material. I could see combining each of those pages into one with sections or a table to describe the individual classifications as well, though. If a merge is proposed, a central place like WT:WikiProject Astronomical Objects is probably the best place to get opinions. —Alex (ASHill | talk | contribs) 16:50, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
