Solar System (8th supplementary nomination)[edit]

This topic is already featured. It is being re-nominated to add additional items. See Wikipedia talk:Featured topics/Solar System for discussions of the topic's previous nominations. The additional items are:

  1. Featured article Dwarf planet
  2. Removal of all moons and dwarf planets
Main page Articles
Solar System Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Moon, Mars, Asteroid belt, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Dwarf planet, Kuiper belt, Scattered disc, Oort cloud, Formation and evolution of the Solar System

It looks like consensus is oppose to large overlaps between topics and prefers setting up subtopics, so now that there is a dwarf planets topic and moon topics underway, I'd like to rearrange this topic to match the new setup. In this supplementary nomination, I'm adding the lead article of the dwarf planet subtopic and removing the moon articles. Once the subtopics are ready we will probably add articles like Moons of Jupiter, but until we can do so I don't think this counts as a gap given that the moons are mentioned in the articles on the planets. --Arctic Gnome (talkcontribs) 16:50, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Oppose. Weak Support. I very much like the idea of grouping the dwarf planets and moons into sub-topics, but I think this is too much change at one time. I think we should just deal with moving the dwarf planets now since that is already another featured topic, and leave the moon articles where they are for the time being.

Support, and I would note to the above reviewer that there's only one moon not included in the below Galilean moons topic nomination. --PresN (talk) 19:31, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Actually, there are 2: Titan and Triton. Also, the Galilean moons topic has not yet been approved and this nomination is only proposing taking the moon articles out without replacing them with the Galilean moons article. I therefore still oppose.Rreagan007 (talk) 19:45, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Comment the dwarf planet topic was never meant to lead to changes into the SS topic. I think that there should be some grace period (as is with the case of topics that become incomplete with the release of new songs/games/etc) until contributors have the time to set up the Jupiter/Moons of Jupiter subtopic. Nergaal (talk) 22:31, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Support - I think setting up a Jupiter/Moons of Jupiter subtopic may take longer than you think, indeed longer than any grace period will last. In the meantime, this topic is left in the lurch, structurally, when compared to the two new topics. Further, to address Rreagan007's suggestion, I feel that in addition to my above argument I would also say that taking out the dwarf planets but not the moons would constitute a notable gap, as the dwarf planets are more notable than the moons. Therefore, I support this move, pointing out that only two articles are losing out completely for the timebeing - rst20xx (talk) 16:15, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
Support - I think this is a great idea, splitting the topic to make several smaller topics that are more focused. Judgesurreal777 (talk) 03:58, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
