Rename to "Points of no return"?[edit]

Question.svg This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.

I think it would be a good idea to rename this page to Points of no return or something similar to that. It rolls off the tongue better than "unrevisitable locations", is named so on various other wikis, and it's a simpler, more descriptive title. I think it would be best to have some sort of discussion before going ahead and renaming it, though. LBsig.png LB (talkeditsforum) 02:15, 14 January 2017 (EST)

That's the commonly-used term. I agree. --Glowsquid (talk) 07:41, 14 January 2017 (EST)
I think we should keep the Unrevisitable locations title 3D Player 2010 08:25, 14 January 2017 (EST)
What about Unreturnable locations? "Points of no return" sounds somewhat strange to me. A drawing of a Splatoon squid Mr squid Talk Edits 11:02, 25 January 2017 (EST)
"Points of no return" is a bit too strong and awkward of a title, especially for minor unrevisitable areas or places such as Switch Palaces or a storage cabin on the Excess Express. When I think of points of no return in a game, I think of final areas where you're locked out from the rest of the accessible world. "Unrevisitable locations" on the other hand is a general term that umbrellas locations both significant or minor just fine. --Zootalo (Talk)

Unrevisitable until [blank][edit]

This article is entitled Unrevisitable locations. The introduction states that it includes locations that are unrevisitable at one point, but can be revisited later. However, Baby Luigi (talk) recently removed any information of the sort in the Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy sections, with the edit summary "making it "unvisitable until x" does not make it "unvisitable". So the question is, do we change the entire article to only cover permanently inaccessible areas?

I've mostly removed "inreaccessible until this point of time" entries because with enough twisting words around, you can virtually apply to any story-driven, plot-driven part of the game to be "inaccessible until you complete this objective", and even so, that doesn't technically make it "unrevisitable", does it? Like, if you're sent on a quest in an RPG, it's a given you can't return to the home-town until you complete the quest (example being outsed from the town place in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Blue/Red Rescue Team), and I think it's just ludicrous to include those type of moments.

I see that logic. I just wanted to make sure it was discussed.

I say Zootalo should comment on this before it is set in stone. As for me, I don't mind the twisted stuff. Red Yoshi in a construction hat walking Yoshi the SSM (talk) 20:38, 14 February 2017 (EST)
I'm going to agree with Baby Luigi. "Unrevisitable until [time]" means it can be revisited at some point after it was initially visited. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:15, 14 February 2017 (EST)
