Merge with Lift?[edit]

I tried writing an article for this page, but there is hardly any information to use. Should it be merged with Lift, like Flimsy Lift? --Super Leaf SMAS SMB3 sprite.png The Mansion Super Leaf SMAS SMB3 sprite.png 13:40, August 28, 2019 (EDT)

I agree on keeping it on Lift since they're basically their replacement in the 3D World style and the same thing. Flimsy Lift should be split eventually though. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:55, August 28, 2019 (EDT)
I said it before, and I will say it again: just because something acts the same does not mean it should automatically be merged. See Whirly Gate and Transformation Door. A general rule of thumb imo is that if something has a different name and looks different, and likely is not a redesign, then it is not the same thing and thus should not be treated as such. If it acts differently then it is an added bonus. Plus, regular Lifts appear in 3D World alongside Cloud Lifts (despite that the article does not mention it). So I think it's safe to say it's different. Also, Flimsy Lifts should 100% be split too. In fact, all of the other Lifts that are somehow merged on the Lift page should be split proper.

Cloud Lifts shouldn't be merged just because they act the same in one game. In SM3DW, Cloud Lifts are occasionally invisible and/or immobile. As far as I know, there weren't even any mobile Cloud Lifts in SM3DW. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 22:10, August 28, 2019 (EDT)
Forgot about 3D World proper, derp. Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:18, August 28, 2019 (EDT)
There are mobile Cloud Lifts in 3DW. In fact, in that fight they are destroyed by Meowser and respawn, which I don't think even happens with regular Lifts in any boss fight. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 22:29, August 28, 2019 (EDT)

Yeah, makes sense. I’ll try writing it again. Thanks for the info, guys. --Super Leaf SMAS SMB3 sprite.png The Mansion Super Leaf SMAS SMB3 sprite.png 11:14, August 29, 2019 (EDT)
