Talk:Mount Duel

Hey. So, I assumed that this page was not necessary anymore, because minigame modes had been transformed into redirects in the past (such as with Mario Party 9), and the article is not really in the best shape (for one, it assumes it to be a minigame rather than a minigame mode). However, when I turned this page into a redirect it was reverted, suggesting I need a proposal first. Before I go and do that, is this really necessary? BMfan08 (talk) 08:57, June 3, 2021 (EDT)

It wouldn't hurt to do so. Besides, there are some game modes like Super Duel Mode or Test for the Best that are so expansive that they do, in fact, warrant their own articles. Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 13:32, June 3, 2021 (EDT)

Merge with Mario Party 6[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

merge 8-0
Okay, I guess I'll leave this brief. I found this article in a state of disarray (though this can be fixed). I probably was a little hasty to make a redirect, so it's time we discuss this. There were several proposals like this one to turn minigame modes into redirects (For examples, see here and here). However, as Archivist Toadette pointed out above, modes like Super Duel Mode and Test for the Best do have their own articles. In my opinion, Mount Duel seems too short and filled with fluff to warrant its own article, and it doesn't have many links to it, but I want to see what others think.

  1. BMfan08 (talk) Per proposal.
  2. RHG1951 (talk) There isn't much unique gameplay compared to Super Duel Mode nor the grading system that requires explanation like Test for the Best.
  3. Archivist Toadette (talk) Per all of my proposals merging simple game modes into their respective game articles.
  4. Ray Trace (talk) Per all, especially 7feetunder.
  5. Somethingone (talk) Per RHG
  6. Power Flotzo (talk) Per everyone.
  7. Lord Grammaticus (talk) Per all.
  8. 7feetunder (talk) I stand by what I said about this not needing a proposal, but since this is almost over now anyway, I might as well throw my hat in the ring.



I don't agree that this needs a proposal. Mount Duel is not even remotely comparable to Super Duel Mode, which is a whole side game in and of itself. Test for the Best is iffy given that we don't have articles on the minigame decathlon modes it's obviously based on, but at least there's a good chunk of information there that helps justify its existence. Mount Duel is just another dime-a-dozen minigame competition mode, which we have already agreed to merge in the past. All this does is delay the inevitable for two weeks.

My plan all along was to move it, but it was reverted back. Do you think we should talk with the person who reverted it back about this? They suggested I make this proposal. BMfan08 (talk) 16:34, June 3, 2021 (EDT)
I left a comment on their talk page. Dark BonesSig.png 16:46, June 3, 2021 (EDT)
I think having a proposal is the best way to ensure that merging things is a good idea regardless of similar merge proposals, rather than just doing it without even getting other people's opinions on the matter. SoraKH.png Keyblade Master 17:08, June 3, 2021 (EDT)
Agree. Each case is technically different from the last, and all need proper consideration. Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 23:22, June 3, 2021 (EDT)

@7feetunder Did you ever get a response from the person who reverted it? Somethingone (talk) 10:18, June 17, 2021 (EDT)

From what I can tell, no. It doesn't matter at this point, the proposal is almost set to pass anyway. BMfan08 (talk) 13:44, June 17, 2021 (EDT)
