Pre-DS[edit]

The article lists every course that's new to a Mario Kart game, even though they're only officially called that in DS onwards. However, this fact is only acknowledged in one sentence (which was my addition, by the way).

Remove all pre-DS courses[edit]

Split the pre-DS courses into another article[edit]

  1. RickTommy (talk)
  2. FanOfYoshi (talk) Per proposal.

Revise the article so as to not imply they're called that pre-DS[edit]

  1. Owencrazyboy9 (talk) I feel this is the best option. Like RickTommy pointed out, the courses from the original Super Mario Kart to Double Dash! weren't referred to as Nitro Courses, until Mario Kart DS onwards. Minor article revision to use that term consistently with Mario Kart DS onwards is the best option, but splitting the information away is just overkill and, in my opinion, unnecessary.
  2. Doomhiker (talk) The article already does not really imply that the term existed before DS, but okay. Anyways, just because a thing was not named (with the exception of the new tracks in Super Circuit) until later does not mean it did not exist before. Really, Nitro Courses is just a term for brand-new courses in a Mario Kart game, same with Super Circuit Tracks, so splitting older ones due to them no getting a name or having a different one until later is unneeded.
  3. FanOfYoshi (talk) Second option, per all.

Other[edit]

Do nothing[edit]

  1. Alex95 (talk) - Just because it's a term that was introduced halfway into the series doesn't mean it doesn't refer to past games. While Super Circuit had a different name to go by, Nitro Course is a good catch-all term to refer to any original courses.
  2. Waluigi Time (talk) Per Alex. Super Circuit aside, these courses had no name to go by before DS, and we retroactively apply names to subjects that previously didn't have one all the time. I don't see the point of splitting when it's the exact same concept, just unnamed.
  3. Owencrazyboy9 (talk) Second option. Of course, this is taking into consideration that subjects with many names most often use the most recent one for its page title. Per all.
  4. Doomhiker (talk) Second option, per my reasons above, also per all.
  5. Yoshi the SSM (talk) Per all. I read the article, and I can't think of anything that needs to be changed. Even Super Circuit Track redirect to this page. And besides, the cups are fine as they are due to them always being the same. And we don't need to make a difference within the cups. The intro already covers this.
  6. Toadette the Achiever (talk) Per all.
  7. Trig Jegman (talk) That'd be so much work to shuffle around pages/redirects/files for something that is a non-issue. Alex nailed it on the head.
  8. TheFlameChomp (talk) Per all.
  9. LudwigVon (talk) Per all.
  10. Sdman213 (talk) Per all.
  11. TheDarkStar (talk) Per all.
  12. Obsessive Mario Fan (talk) "Nitro Courses" is just the most recent name used. Per all.
  13. bwburke94 (talk) Per all... but what games actually use this term?
  14. BBQ Turtle (talk) Per all.

Comments[edit]

I'm confused over why wouldn't we be changing anything. --SMW2yoshi.gif FanOfYoshi 02:14, July 18, 2019 (EDT)

Because the article already states that the term was first used in Mario Kart DS (and does not imply that it was used earlier at all), and Nitro Course just refers to original courses in general, so just because that name was different or not there previously does not mean it did not exist then, and that we should split the pages. Read the "Revise the article so as to not imply they're called that pre-DS" and "Do nothing" votes. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 09:54, July 18, 2019 (EDT)
The sentence in question, like I said, was my own addition as a precursor to this proposal. RickTommy (talk) 09:31, July 21, 2019 (EDT)
