We have Pondus et Massa. --Rolandus 20:56, 14 Aprilis 2008 (UTC)

If keeping the bots unmixed up is the important thing. Why don't we make redirect pages pondus (#REDIRECT [[Pondus et Massa]]) and massa (#REDIRECT [[Pondus et Massa]]) with links to the corresponding english pages en:weight and en:mass? There is no reason I can see why Vicipaedia needs separate pages for these two closely associated concepts.--Rafaelgarcia 18:42, 15 Aprilis 2008 (UTC)
I fear this will not work for the bots:
  • weight → pondus → pondus et massa → weight ... ok
  • mass → massa → pondus et massa → mass? ... but the Latin page already links back to weight, so in fact mass leads to a Latin page which links back to weight

Just to be clear, the idea I had in mind is that massa would separately link back to en:mass and also to Pondus et Massa via a redirect. Just to be clear, I take it this would confuse the bots?--Rafaelgarcia 20:01, 15 Aprilis 2008 (UTC)
I am just guessing, but the idea might be, to find pairs of pages which are linked to each other. So the question will be, to what English page our pondus et massa - red, because it is Pondus et Massa - should link. If we choose "weight", it will be ok for "the list". However, how should someone know why we decided to use "weight" and not "massa"? Why should he not change this? Moreover, I think these two terms deserve individual pages. At least on the long run. --Rolandus 20:19, 15 Aprilis 2008 (UTC)
I think we should divide Pondus et Massa once and for all into two separate pages Pondus and Massa. In modern physics weight and mass are two different things and I don't see why this shouldn't be the same in 'modern' Latin! Such a division would also solve all the problems with interwiki-links. --Fabullus 11:19, 19 Aprilis 2008 (UTC)
