Attempted merge

I think this is a bit too short for a standalone article, but still noteworthy to mention as an example in out of the blue. GUYTU6J (talk) 09:03, 6 August 2022 (UTC)

  • I think it is better to avoid confusing readers by lumping different subjects together. Two standalone short glossary articles about different things are better than one long article attempting to cover everything. The article MWSS out of the blue states: "MWSS out of the blue is a reaction found by Peter Rott in November 1997 [...]". After the attempted merge, the article Out of the blue claimed "MWSS out of the blue is another example of said reaction found by Peter Rott in November 1997 [...]". Even if this change is reasonable (which I doubt), it is still unexplained. Confocal (talk) 09:14, 6 August 2022 (UTC)
Out of the blue said: "Other similar mechanisms... may also be referred to as 'out of the blue' reactions." It is a general concept, and MWSS out of the blue is a perfectly good demonstration of said concept, so merging is reasonable to avoid coherent information scattering on different pages.

  • It is not scattering - it is short glossary articles, which are something perfectly reasonable and helpful to me. See also links can be used to link these glossary articles together. Either way, I do not support merging pages without any previous discussion. Confocal (talk) 09:22, 6 August 2022 (UTC)
If relevant information is scattering on different pages, comparing and connecting them is harder and loading more pages may be problematic for unstable internet. GUYTU6J (talk) 09:30, 6 August 2022 (UTC)
