Revert demerger to List of rolls of arms[edit]

I do not believe the above demerger should have taken place and that it should now be reverted to re-consolidate the article Roll of arms. The article Roll of arms was only a very short article and there was no need for a demerger. It has been shorn of its relevant detail and the new article is turning into a parallel article, developing a longer and longer intro, whilst the original article is developing its own list of rolls. A mess. Comments please. (Lobsterthermidor (talk) 13:14, 13 March 2015 (UTC))

I viewed both articles, and consider the separation of the topic and list to be beneficial. To expand the article Roll of arms further, I expect it will become less British Isles centered probably through cross connection with similarly titled articles in other languages. There seems to be a continuity threads that have not been developed regarding military use, class-defining function, the natural fade in relevance in most republics, etc. In sum the article Roll of arms is start class because it is so sparse. I have great respect for Lobsterthermidor as I encounter his excellent work and improvements from time to time; remerging may make less work by allowing edits to be within one article rather than between articles. Yet removing the bulky List of rolls of arms may allow natural growth in the article Roll of arms by keeping External links and other elements. So my suggestion is to "wait and see" for a few years, while moving content from List of roll of arms to Roll of arms when appropriate68.32.154.213 (talk) 16:17, 14 July 2015 (UTC).
