Keep current name 1-8

When i was trying to edit Magmaargh, the name World 8-Bowser's Castle (Super Mario 3D Land) is to long so it should be renamed.

Support[edit]

  1. Randombob-omb4761 (talk) Simpler is better.

Oppose[edit]

  1. Iggy Koopa Jr (talk) I'm sorry, but the name of an article shouldn't be changed because it is convenient for you. If its offficial title is World 8: World 8-Bowser's Castle, let it be that way.
  2. Time Turner (talk) We do not make changes simply due to the whims of a user.
  3. Yoshi876 (talk) There's another Castle level in World 8, so it may get confusing for some users.
  4. Icemario11 (talk) Per all.
  5. SuperYoshiBros (talk) Per all.
  6. Super Mario Bros. (talk) – Per all. The article name being "too long" is not a proper reason to move the article to a different, unofficial name. The official name is "World 8-Bowser's Castle," so it should remain that way. If there are legitimate issues with people reaching this article due to them searching for it under another title, then we can either use redirects, a disambiguation page, or {{about}} and {{redirect}} dependent on the circumstances.
  7. Scr7 (talk) Per the above, it should stay with its official name.
  8. LeftyGreenMario (talk) It sounds convincing until you realize that it creates ambiguity and conjecture.

move to World 8-Bowser: Part 1 and World 8-Bowser: Part 2, respectively 6-1-0
First of all, let me clear up one thing: the current name is conjectural, as well as inconveniently long. There is no source for the current name, and the identifier makes it a burden to type anyway. The game refers to both these levels simply as "World 8-Bowser". There are, however, other official names for the Bowser levels.

I got this game as well as the Prima guide last week, and I just beat it. I can affirm that the game did indeed call both levels "World 8-Bowser". The obvious choice may seem to be to move this to World 8-Bowser 1 and move the other one to World 8-Bowser 2, but I looked in my Prima guide, and it called them World 8-Bowser: Part 1 and World 8-Bowser: Part 2. I have the eGuide, so I can't get page numbers to cite these, but both these names were in the World 8 section and were repeated in later sections. The names may seem odd, but they're the only official ones we've got outside of the game. And though they're not entirely official, I'm also including moving them to World 8-Bowser and World 8-Bowser 2 as an option.

Move pages to World 8-Bowser: Part 1 and World 8-Bowser: Part 2[edit]

  1. YoshiFlutterJump (talk) My preferred option. These names are the most official of all our options, and according to policy that's what we go by.
  2. Yoshi the SSM (talk) Per proposal. Also, it may seem like it should be called Bowser's Castle only by what it looks like. However, this can't be applied to the other unless there is a clear distinction from the first, but not as 2 unless it is (part of) official info. So, a move is in order for the other no matter what.
  3. Toadette the Achiever (talk) Of course we can use Prima names for this rather exceptional case, since even identifiers can't properly distinguish between the two official names used in the game.
  4. BBQ Turtle (talk) Per all, if we have official differentiating names we may as well use them.
  5. Owencrazyboy9 (talk) Per all. We usually strive to have official material for literally almost everything, so why not?
  6. TheFlameChomp (talk) If nothing ever actually refers to these levels as "Bowser's Castle", and these are names used officially, then I feel it would make sense to distinguish the pages using these names. Per all.

Move pages to World 8-Bowser and World 8-Bowser 2[edit]

  1. YoshiFlutterJump (talk) My second option. The Prima names may seem a bit confusing, and this is the route we usually take when two levels have the same in-game name.

Keep pages at current names[edit]
