Talk:Boss Level

Jump to: navigation, search

I think "Boss" would be a better name for the article. It's a lot more common term than "Boss Level", and it's easier to find. Plus, non-boss levels can have bosses in them, like free edit worlds. Plus, the page is focused on the boss itself rather than the things found in boss levels, such as minigames on the side which are rather common. --N1KF (talk) 23:53, 13 June 2018 (EDT)

arent all the other pages named "x Levels" though? --Jet (talk) 11:54, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

I think it's best to choose the name that comes most naturally to users. "Boss Levels" is more oddly specific than "Bosses" for seemingly no reason. The difference between a "boss" and a "boss level" is more confusing than it needs to be. The "x Levels" name given to those pages can be rather misleading. The "Secret Mazes" section of the Maze Levels page even contradicts the very idea of it being a level type, noting that "These mazes aren't usually standalone levels, instead being used as minigames." Stairs Levels is even worse, since half of the time stairs are just parts of otherwise non-stair levels. What do we do if we have an article for, say, "MIHB's Dream"? Do we link to Stairs Levels or a redirect of it when mentioning a part of the level having stairs, even though that's not the focus of the level and such a link would be misleading? Simply put, I think the idea of a boss itself is more deserving of an article than levels about bosses. And while I'm at it, I'm going to point out that I think Maze Levels and Stairs Levels need the same treatment. --N1KF (talk) 13:25, 14 June 2018 (EDT)
