Merger with individual deities[edit]

The majority of Dragonlance deities are not sufficiently notable to justify their own articles. As such, the following articles should be merged here: Zivilyn, Zeboim (Dragonlance), Takhisis, Solinari, Sirrion, Shinare, Sargonnas, Nuitari, Morgion (Dragonlance), Majere (god), Lunitari, Kiri-Jolith, Hiddukel, Habbakuk (Dragonlance), Chislev (Dragonlance), Chaos (Dragonlance), and Branchala.

Contest. Takhisis at least needs her own page as a central figure in the books. Web Warlock (talk) 15:09, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Approve, none of the characters seem to be notable enough. The same goes for Takhisis, being a central figure in a fiction is not a proof of notability as WP defines it. You can easily unmerge when/if you find sufficient coverage in secondary sources to make a suitable stand-alone article, but I don't see any reason why the merge shouldn't be implemented now.Folken de Fanel (talk) 15:31, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
    • it is unmerged now, so leave it as it is. I can easily find independent references to this. The other gods though I am not contesting at this point and they should remain merged. Web Warlock (talk) 15:36, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
My son is a dragon fanatic, has been for the last 11+ years. We have over 300 books on dragons. If it was published and Takhisis (his favorite dragon) was in it, then I have it in my library somewhere. Web Warlock (talk) 15:55, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
I support your efforts to improve the sourcing for this content. The nominator appears to be flitting from place to place surrounding D&D, trying to redirect everything and improving nothing in the process. Be sure to keep posting such discussions to the Wikiproject talk page to keep us informed of future such efforts. Jclemens (talk) 21:36, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
Yes, thank you Web Warlock! I appreciate your efforts on Takhisis. BOZ (talk) 22:37, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, at what point do we remove the merge tag? I see no reason to merge this now. In fact, I think with some work we can get this to GA status. Web Warlock (talk) 00:11, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
