I think a navbox would look better here, something like this:

Generally, it seems that a navbox is preferred when you have a list of links to other related articles, (see WP:NAV and Ice II). I don't know why this needs to be an ordinary section; if you have a special reason please tell us, otherwise, if no one objects in a couple of days, I'll go ahead and replace this template.

  • Obviously, one could continue creating pages for every organic chemistry affix (e.g. meth-, eth-, prop-, cis-, trans-, etc.), but this begs the question, when do we stop? Do we even need the ones here? I'm starting to think that most of these pages are unnecessary. Jkasd (talk) 22:42, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Right. This information should be in wiktionary not wikipedia. All prefixes belonging to any topic can be categorized there. – ishwar  (speak) 06:27, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
  • Or we could merge them all into one page about components of organic chemical names, but keep it on Wikipedia. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 06:56, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
