Split NWC Content Into Three Articles Or Merge Into One General Article[edit]

I find it kind of weird we split the general NWC branding from the competition held in 1990, but don't with the 2015 and 2017 revivals. I propose we either keep NWC-related material merged in one article or we split into Nintendo World Championships 1990, Nintendo World Championships 2015, and Nintendo World Championships 2017, meaning Nintendo World Championships becomes a disambiguation page.

Split Into 1990, 2015, and 2017 Articles[edit]

  1. Wildgoosespeeder (talk) Per proposal.

Merge 1990 With This Article[edit]

  1. Wildgoosespeeder (talk) Per proposal.


Oppose[edit]

  1. MrConcreteDonkey (talk) - The Nintendo World Championships 1990 article is about the game cartridge itself, not the "general NWC branding". Especially considering how valuable they have become, I'd say it's separate enough to warrant its own article.
  2. Alex95 (talk) - Ooh, didn't think about that. Yeah, the cartridge should be separate from the events. Per MCD.
  3. TheFlameChomp (talk) Changing my vote, since the cartridge is different from the competition itself. Per all.
  4. Toadette the Achiever (talk) At best, we could throw in an identifier.
  5. Chester Alan Arthur (talk) They're separate things so per all.
  6. LuigiMaster123 (talk) Since it's about a cartridge and not the event than I change my vote to this. Per all.
  7. Yoshi the SSM (talk) The two latest seem to be basically the same with some differences, but the first was very different from either of them. Per all.

Comments[edit]

The problem calling the 1990 NES cartridge a game is that it was never meant to be one. Because the original cartridges were awarded to the finalists and Nintendo Power gave away gold cartridge versions, this likely made people believe it is a game rather than a tool for the event. The cartridge by itself means nothing. It's the event that makes it so special. It is a combination cartridge with modified versions of otherwise standalone games. DIP switches were used to probably control the time allowed in each game. This would be like calling the Super Game Boy a game because it is a special Game Boy in cartridge form. It's not a game. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 14:41, 23 September 2017 (EDT)

The point isn't about whether it's a game or not. It's about whether it deserves its own article. FakeIco MCD.png MrConcreteDonkey 14:57, 23 September 2017 (EDT)
Well, you are arguing it is a game with your oppose vote, so how could I not think that? Because of the 2015 revival, this whole situation is weird. I say follow Wikipedia's example to keep things simple. If that is not desirable, I am open to splitting each year. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 15:02, 23 September 2017 (EDT)
