Article -> List?Edit

Should this page be made into a List? I feel that Blood type provides sufficient Background (history, content, explanations etc.) to the reader for this article only to be a list that complements the Blood type article. Otherwise, we would just repeat all content written in Blood type article in own subheadings here. That seems unnecessary. Thoughts on this? --Treetear (talk) 23:18, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

yes, that seems like a good idea--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 23:27, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
I agree - Blood type seems the right place for the broader explanation. CharlesSpencer (talk) 10:58, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

contradictory?Edit

As of today there is a "contradictory" flag after the approximate number of minor blood groups. Why is that there without any further discussion? Which article does this contradict?

I presume it's because the "200+ minor blood groups" number contradicts Blood type "across the 36 blood groups, over 340 different blood-group antigens have been found,", and Rh blood group system "the Rh blood group system is one of thirty-five known human blood group systems," and a number of other locations. It seems like it should clarify that these numbers refer to "major blood groups", and the "200+" number refers to both major and minor blood groups, if that is true.

AugustineEdit

Right now the wikilink for Augustine group links to Augustine of Hippo. Don’t see how that’s relevant, unless he discovered/had that blood type. 97.116.94.89 (talk) 21:04, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
