Talk:Mechagon Island

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

If the outdoor zone / the island is named "Mechagon Island", and "Mechagon" is the name of the underground city which also has an instance version known as Operation: Mechagon, should "Mechagon Island" redirect to Mechagon or should it be split? --Mordecay (talk) 10:24, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

So far on the PTR, the island is literally "Mechagon" (as shown in the interface area above the minimap) but referenced as "Mechagon Island". Not sure how this will span out, but it'd make sense to separate the two. — Surafbrov T / C / P 12:53, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Ooh, right, should have checked wowhead first. I just saw direct links to Mechagon Island instead of Mechagon here and assumed that's the outdoor zone name. In this case I'm less sure if further splitting is necessary, but yeah, it would be nice to differentiate between the zone and the underground city, I guess. --Mordecay (talk) 13:00, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Is the main subzone of the un-instanced city also Mechagon?--SWM2448 01:25, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

I'm not sure we should also move the Category:Mechagon to Category:Mechagon Island? Looking at wowhead, quests are under "Mechagon", not Mechagon Island. If we decided to use the full name of Ashenvale Forest as page name would category:Ashenvale quest be moved to Category:Ashenvale Forest quests? --Mordecay (talk) 10:06, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

But Ashenvale is the name of the zone. Looking at the Visitor's Guide my guess is the zone will be named Mechagon Island instead of just Mechagon. At least I expect that because it would be such a pita if they left it as just Mechagon. Two days left so if they don't change it then we could go back. --Ryon21 (talk) 11:10, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

The zone displays as just Mechagon but when switching maps it is labelled as Mechagon Island. What do we do? --Ryon21 (talk) 22:02, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

For ease of sanity, I'm fine going with Mechagon Island. -- DarkTZeratul (talk) 00:47, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
Same, the world map interface agrees too. — Surafbrov T / C / P 01:41, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
I vote that it should not be this hard. Are there any other discrepancies of this nature?--SWM2448 02:08, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
I'd personally take the easiest and most common option, whatever it is. It's okay if we misname a few pages/categories for the sake of making our lives easier. Xporc (talk) 07:09, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
I can't recall of similar situations. But a lot of the quests in the island refer to it as also Mechagon Island, I think. If we went with that name, a simply commentary in the notes section or the first paragraph might be enough. At least this way it would be far less confusing. --Ryon21 (talk) 11:12, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
Since Blizz used the name like that in that bar that Suraf posted, I don't mind moving the page (and related categories, I think?) to Mechagon Island, but the current one is also fine for me. --Mordecay (talk) 01:04, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
