Necessary walkthroughs?

Are the walkthrough sections on this game's level pages necessary to have? As they are, they've primarily been clutter to the page, especially the maps as not only does the Game Gear version have its own maps, but they're better being accessed on the map page. As for the information itself in these sections, descriptions of each Act can be better described in the overview sections.

I'm thinking that if we do cull them, I'll replace them with new sections that only detail where to find the hidden 1-Up monitors (every Act has one of them, and Sky Base Act 3's 1-Up only appears after getting every other 1-Up monitor in the game) and the Chaos Emeralds for the good ending. --BSonirachi (talk) 14:50, 11 January 2021 (EST)

It's legacy stuff from years ago - it can indeed be culled. Some of it is duplication anyway.
I went through a brief phase where, if you're going to document Green Hill Zone, I thought there was no better way than to post a map, but I wasn't thinking about the bigger picture at the time, with all the layout variants and the fact we'll never be able to cleanly replicate something similar for the 3D games (at least not in the near future anyway). -Black Squirrel (talk) 16:54, 11 January 2021 (EST)
Alrighty, that's what I need to know. And yeah, duplication was the biggest problem, especially with bosses. --BSonirachi (talk) 17:13, 11 January 2021 (EST)
