RFD result[edit]

I resolved the discussion at RFD (listed 21 November 2005) as no consensus because the nominated reason isn't a criterion to delete redirects. Here is an archive of the discussion:

  • Uranium-lead datingRadiometric dating -- All of the types of radiometric dating have their own articles or are red links, except this one (see "types of radiometric dating" in the radiometric dating article). The redirect should be deleted so that people will know that we don't have an article about it yet. -- Kjkolb 10:00, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
    • Comment. This page has a few incoming link and the redirect does seem useful to me since radiometric dating mentions uranium-lead dating, so I'll leave it to a more experienced admin to decide. -- Jitse Niesen (talk) 00:56, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

Removed entry from RFD and template from redirect. Demi T/C 07:14, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

New article needed[edit]

This topic needs to have its own article, but I'm not ready to write a stub from scratch that I'm sure won't get reverted right away. It will probably be a copy-paste-and-edit of the relevant paragraph(s) in radiometric dating, for people to expand upon. --arkuat (talk) 09:35, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

I just want to make clear that I did not write the text of this article, I just copied it out of radiometric dating because I thought the subject needed its own article. See page history of radiometric dating for the origins of the text of this article. --arkuat (talk) 01:05, 22 May 2006 (UTC)


  • Oppose merge. U-Pb is a distinct and important radiometric dating method and requires it's own page.Rickert 01:17, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Oppose - more than enough material available on this important technique to develope a significant article. Vsmith 01:49, 13 February 2007 (UTC)


Doesnt U–Pb means a range, eg. from U to Pb and U-Pb means U and Pb? Christian75 (talk) 19:13, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
