Two Christmas wormsThe name World Map should not be used for a video game specific trope, period. Too much chance that it would get confused with other tropes involving world maps.
Dragon WriterWell, I pounded out a hard disambig description for it listing the most immediate things that I might associate with "world map" as a term. How does it look? BTW, what indexes should we use for the new name? It didn't ever belong on either of the old indexes (Video Game Interface Elements and Video Game Settings). Currently it's on Map Tropes but ... that's it.
Yes, keep World Map as a disambig, not medium specific.
Oppression anywhere is a threat to democracy everywhere.
Dragon WriterShould we cut "Videogame World Map"? That redirect never got any use, it's not specific enough for the new name nor broad enough for the old one.
Dragon WriterNot sure about that. I tried to limit the disambig to things that may reasonably be called the "world map", because we do already have Map Tropes which is the index of map-related tropiness, and I see no need of duplicating that. And several tropes on the index aren't synonymous with the phrase "world map" (like Here There Be Dragons).
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
