Naming: "Northern peninsula of Bajor"Edit

Which is better, this name or simply "Northern peninsula" to match Northwest peninsula, also on Bajor? --LauraCC (talk) 20:30, February 10, 2017 (UTC)

I'm not sure if either really needs an article, but if they do, I'd go with "Northern peninsula" because that's what it was actually called. -- Capricorn (talk) 13:15, February 12, 2017 (UTC)

Suggestion to merge "southern peninsula" with PeninsulaEdit

This isn't a real name for the area. Worf was neither pretending to know the peninsula's formal name, nor did it seem like he was intent on christening it. Continent offers a really good template as how to deal with these kinds of places. -- Capricorn (talk) 16:20, February 12, 2017 (UTC)

Just throwing this out here because we do need to collectively work on our standardization of things on MA: it may not be a "real" name, but it is an accurate descriptor for a "real" region, or in other words, this peninsula is "its own thing" on a real planet, rather than just some generic definition of a thing. (I would think this would be like merging Federation mission scoutship with scout ship, because the former wasn't given a formal name on screen, because it is "its own thing", and not just a generic definition.) With that said, the continent page you referenced isn't completely terrible. --Alan del Beccio (talk) 16:45, February 12, 2017 (UTC)

A specific tree is it's own thing too, but that doesn't automatically mean they all get pages. I think what matters is if something is just a regular example of a certain concept, or if it is a specific sub-type with its own distinct characteristics. This peninsula is just a specific example of a peninsula. The way I see it, existing standards work just fine here. -- Capricorn (talk) 17:21, February 13, 2017 (UTC)

How come certain continents have their own pages, then? --LauraCC (talk) 22:07, February 24, 2017 (UTC)
Because enough mergeophiles haven't banded together yet to devalue them yet. -Alan del Beccio (talk) 06:16, February 25, 2017 (UTC)
