  9. JRM 14:43, 11 Dec 2004 (UTC) I'm inclusionist on information, not articles
  10. Johnleemk 12:52, 8 Jan 2005 (UTC) If a topic is encyclopedic, it should be in Wikipedia in some form. I don't tend to extreme mergism, though; I believe there's a division among encyclopedic topics, too: Those that deserve their own article, and those that don't. Otherwise, we might as well either compile everything into one page (Wikipedia is not paper!) or split each sentence into its own page (Wikipedia is not paper!).

  34. --Mddake 01:04, 2 August 2005 (UTC) Moderation is probably a good thing.
  35. Gate2Valusia 02:47, 19 August 2005 (UTC) Lately, I've been merging a lot of Cthulhu mythos stubs in Wikipedia, so I guess that makes me a mergist. My belief is that the longer an article remains a stub, the more likely it is that it will be deleted in the future. Many stub articles can probably never be expanded anyway (and this is especially true of fantasy stubs); thus, merging them into another article is probably the best way to preserve them. Furthermore, a merged article, containing lots of integrated pieces (i.e., former stubs) is less likely to get the proverbial axe! (BTW: Here are some articles I created by merging stubs: Wikipedia:Celestial bodies (Cthulhu mythos), Wikipedia:Arcane literature (Cthulhu mythos), Wikipedia:Deep One (Cthulhu mythos).)
  36. Alphax, but I'm also a member of the AWWDMBJAWGCAWAIFDSPBATDMTD.
  37. Karmafist 04:49, 26 October 2005 (UTC) I should also join awewakosdkmasdvlkatrtd, or whatever it is...
  38. Jacqui 01:41, 28 October 2005 (UTC) I lean toward inclusion of most verifiable information and deletion of advertisements and POV forks. I believe merging to be one one of many ways that help users find information.

  41. Mysekurity 07:35, 5 November 2005 (UTC) Like those above, I too am a member of that really long name thing (see above, I don't feel like copy-pasting).
  42. Ξxtreme Unction 18:09, 11 November 2005 (UTC) ∾ I am either a Mergist with strong Deletionist tendencies, or a Deletionist with strong Mergist tendencies. I suspect the latter, though I do have a high tolerance for pop-culture-related articles, especially those about computer gaming and genre fiction. However, I am absolutely croggled that we have individual articles for every freakin' mini-game ever to appear on The Price is Right. I don't think I want to live in a world where there's an individual Wikipedia article for every one of those games.
  43. Just zis  Guy, you know?, 13:41, 12 November 2005 (UTC), as a mergist for real info (including not-independantly-notable schools) and a deletionist for spam, bandcruft and listcruft.
  44. Cpritchett42 22:17, 20 November 2005 (UTC) Just keep mergin'.
  45. Dna-webmaster 05:08, 25 November 2005 (UTC) I didn't realise I was a Mergist until I found this group! Include me, and do not delete me, since I am neither Inclusionist nor Deletionist...

  107. GreggEdwards Both Splits and Merges contribute to a balanced Nuome. These represent one dimension of Cognitive Style sensu Herman Witkin. He observed that one dimension was Lumpers vs. Splitters, also strongly correlated with Elaborators vs. Skeletonizers. These tendencies seem roughly heritable, so by some interpretations of evolutionary genetics, both contribute to collective fitness. Note that the Encyclopedia Britanica had both approaches working together: the Macropedia (Lumper), and the Micropedia (Splitter). Most successful books in the form of a Thesaurus also combine approaches to serve both: the Category list (Lumper), and the Index (Splitter); Roget's Thesaurus gave equal space to both. The more highly rated reviews of thesauri at Amazon.com strongly testify to the value of using the two approaches together.
  108. GenQuest "Talk to Me" 20:00, 03 January 2013 (UTC); Making it official since I've been maintaining the Proposed Mergers Noticeboard since the end of 2012. I like to preserve the referenced work in merged articles, and will discard the rest if clear references are not immediately available. I like to teach others how merging should happen. I am working on the 2.5+ year backlog, too, as time allows.
