Merge[edit]

Massive oppose: Similar layout or not, NTSC and PAL are 2 different regions and therefore get 2 different pages. Serpent SKSig.png King 00:31, 9 March 2016 (EST)

Oppose Even if we were to put aside Serpent's point (which I do agree with), I don't see how we would possibly be able to merge it without it looking weird or otherwise inconsistent. Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 00:32, 9 March 2016 (EST)
The only way I could see merging it working would be by making List of regional version differences something more along the lines of Alternate costume where it describes the idea generally while leaving game-by-game examples to the subpages. That would work to an extent, but I'm not sure it'd be an improvement. Miles (talk) 00:43, 9 March 2016 (EST)
These articles are less like counterparts, but more like mirrored pages. NTSC and PAL are in this weird doppelganger situation. i.e. (NTSC: There is no difference in gameplay between PAL in "Brawl".) (PAL: There is no difference in gameplay between NTSC in "Brawl".) (Hypothetical merge NTSC/PAL: In "Brawl" there is no difference between gameplay.) I think having one article that tells what each is and having it differentiate from each other makes more sense. Yes, they are different regions, but I personally don't see how that applies to what I'm saying here. RobSir RobSir-sig.jpg zx 01:17, 9 March 2016 (EST)
How is the fact that they are separate regions irrelevant? Serpent SKSig.png King 01:38, 9 March 2016 (EST)

I honestly don't see the point of this article or PAL's for the matter. I think we could merge PAL and NTSC with the List of Regional Differences pages, consequently beefing it up a tad (i.e. more information on what exactly they are plus photos of the maps) and call it good.

Strong oppose. They are two different topics at the end of the day, and a merge along the lines of "International versions" would be a bit clunky. Nyargleblargle.pngNyargleblargle (Contribs) 10:35, 9 March 2016 (EST)

Support some kind of merge of both pages with Regional differences. They're both very short, plus the Regional differences page already contains the exact same information about the PAL/NTSC standards. -Menshay (talk) 15:09, 9 March 2016 (EST)

Oppose: They are distinct enough from each other to have separate articles. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Gamer 15:52, 10 March 2016 (EST)

Oppose, as they are different areas even if the articles are the same. AmoongussForLife AmoongussForLife's signature.pngTalk 19:03, 10 March 2016 (EST)
