Proposed mergeEdit

Hello to all! I am proposing a merge from the following articles into this article:

This is for the following reasons:

  • The main article would benefit significantly from having all this information in one place.
  • These articles are very short in length (1-2 sentences) and have not been edited significantly in 3-4 years.
  • This knowledge shouldn't be obscured from readers of this article by virtue of being isolated in an obscure article of 1-2 lines.
  • These topics may receive more attention by being mentioned in the main article.
  • The articles, if needs be, could be re-expanded at a later date.

Comment - not sure about merging pages about vascular structures (angiokeratomas angiokeratomata?) with pages about sebaceous structures (Fordyce spots) is logical? But, I would support merging Oral Fordyce Granules with Fordyce's spot, since they are the same entity as far as I am aware... Could be argued to merge the angiokeratoma pages together, but would keep Fordyce pages separate from them. Lesion (talk) 11:02, 24 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have completed the merge, retaining a separate Fordyce spot article. LT90001 (talk) 01:03, 28 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@LT910001: were you still looking to merge anything here, or are you happy? Lesion (talk) 18:15, 14 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hello! Thanks. I'm happy and considering merging these. What would be your opinion of a merge of just four or three of the ones here? --LT910001 (talk) 04:58, 15 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think I merged oral fordyce spot with fordyce spot in the end. Regarding other merges, I don't know much about angiokeratoma(ta), but it seems perfectly reasonable to merge everything with that term in the name into one article? Lesion (talk) 12:06, 15 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have completed this merge. --LT910001 (talk) 02:43, 16 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
