From Sonic Retro

My intention at some stage was to rename all these sub-pages "xxxx/Maps". I want to drop the term "level" because... not all of them are levels. Also Sega Retro consistency.

But here's a question - do we need dedicated maps pages? Is it not just doubling up as a slightly less convenient category?

(e.g. why go here when you could go here?)

Why not just put the Green Hill Zone maps on the Green Hill Zone page? If a level page exists to describe a level, what is more descriptive than a map of it?

Maps pages are fine for Sega/NEC Retro, because won't be having dedicated pages for every level like we do here. -Black Squirrel (talk) 16:06, 20 February 2019 (EST)

Because not every level ever can have its own dedicated page, leaving them no other place to have them? The only levels I can think of which won't have dedicated pages are the multiplayer-exclusive levels in the Sonic Advance trilogy (specifically, the first game's Chao Hunt levels and the Single Pak VS. levels across all three games). --BSonirachi (talk) 16:32, 20 February 2019 (EST)
I'm fine with making exceptions - having slept on it I think there might be one or two games that might cause problems (I'm thinking maybe Sonic's Schoolhouse and Sonic Pinball Party. Or maybe not. I dunno).
It might be a more useful exercise for some of the 8-bit games where the level pages are little more than "XXX IS A LEVEL IN SONIC YYY". -Black Squirrel (talk) 12:29, 21 February 2019 (EST)
