Instead of merging the page with Robot, maybe we should turn the Gnomebot page into a page for all Mechagon robots? Xporc (talk) 09:05, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Yeah I don't see any reason to merge the pages. I would like to see if a name for the new bots will turn up though. Do we have "Gnomebot" verified, or is that just from the sound files? PeterWind (talk) 16:52, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
I just jumped ahead of time creating a page with this name, probably shouldn't have. "Gnomebot" is just the sound files from wowhead, but according to https://twitter.com/Stiven_SRB/status/1118371415873478658 and https://twitter.com/Marlamin/status/1118269793126289408 (with 8.2 the files don't come with filenames it seams) I'm not sure that file name is official or if it's a name entered by the wowhead guy. I think a page for this robot type should have it's own page and this and this should have their own pages rather then having a Mechagon robots page. Mrforesttroll (talk) 03:14, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
Going by the "Who uses these sounds" lists, it seems the small are also called Alarm-o-bots. The "gnomebots" use all kinds of different names like scrapbot, colbearer and so on. I don't mind using the soundfile names if that's all we're left with, but perhaps some are named through dialogue/quests? PeterWind (talk) 10:36, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
What about a "Mechagon robot" page then? Xporc (talk) 20:16, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
There are gnomebots in Gnomeregan - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jcavfzT21Y&feature=youtu.be&t=147 - and are refereed to as gnomebots by a gnome - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jcavfzT21Y&feature=youtu.be&t=154. Mrforesttroll (talk) 15:47, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
Alright, I suggest "gnomebot" then, since it's canonically used by an NPC and is supported by dialogs. Thoughts? Xporc (talk) 16:18, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
