Page Action: World Map
What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
"World Map" is currently defined as "any depiction of a videogame regional map that provides free exploration between discrete levels/areas" (a la Final Fantasy). It is, however, used for videogame World Maps in general, such as "map select screen" style maps (a la Super Mario Bros 3).
This issue has been resolved and voting is closed.
+9 (yeas:11 nays:2)

Trope Transplant 1

  • Expand "World Map" into a Super Trope for the World Map mechanic in video games, regardless of its technical implementation.
  • Move the current definition (e.g. Final Fantasy-style world maps) to a separate name.
  • Update/split wikilinks between free-roaming and Point-and-Click Map types.


  • Pro: New definition is consistent with virtually all in-wiki usage of the term (nobody is using outside of videogames).
  • Con: Pre-existing term is still broader than the definition.
-1 (yeas:3 nays:4)

Trope Transplant 2


  • Pro: Pre-established term for, well, "maps of the world" in general.
  • Con: Tropability concerns; found no in-wiki usage of the term outside of videogames.
-6 (yeas:0 nays:6)

Keep


  • Pro:
  • Con: May not stop future misuse.
