Difference between revisions of "Talk:Water tile"

 
:::::::Why? Aren't intuitiveness and accuracy ultimately more important? There are already several examples on this wiki of articles that are similar to one another but don't all follow the exact same naming convention. Take {{i|Metronome}}, {{i|Black Belt}} and {{i|Pearl}}, for example, all of which are items that share their names with other significant concepts and thus have the disambiguator "(item)" in their article titles. Not all item articles follow this pattern, however, because their names don't clash with anything else. How is that any different to this situation? Also, if consistency is what's most important, why do "[[Hole]]", "[[Ledge]]", "[[Puddle]]", "[[Soft soil]]", "[[Tall grass]]" and "[[Trap]]" all exist as article titles (not to mention all of the section titles on the [[water tile]] article)? Shouldn't they all have the word "tile" appended to them? [[User:Pale Prism|Pale Prism]] ([[User talk:Pale Prism|talk]]) 23:25, 18 August 2021 (UTC)
::::::::Also, an addendum: regardless of what the decision is as to whether or not these articles should all follow the exact same naming convention (and whether or not "tile" ought to be replaced with "(terrain)", "(obstacle)", "(flooring)", "(object)", nothing or whatever else), I still think that the [[cave tile]] and [[cave]] articles ought to be merged. There's literally no reason to have them be separate. [[User:Pale Prism|Pale Prism]] ([[User talk:Pale Prism|talk]]) 22:56, 20 August 2021 (UTC)
:::::::::I'm not sure if you intended this, Pale Prism, but just in case... I oppose moving this to just "Water"; most users typing "Water" wouldn't be interested in this article's topic (but having the article named like that means they would land here).
:::::::::I agree with you on what you said about consistency, but for a lack of a really good/better option, I still think the current title is probably best. (Also, in case you missed it, I started [[Talk:Cave tile#Merge discussion|a merge discussion for cave/cave tile]], and I'd be interested in your rationale/opinion.)
