Why Separate?

Does Binary really need a separate page aside from the main page about Homeworlds? - Cerulean 13:09, 25 July 2007 (EDT)

It's a different game entirely, so I'd say it does. Further, once a game "variation" has different piece requirements or player numbers, it can't be listed under the same sorting categories or in the same table cells on What Can I Play?. Further still, a variation could have totally different attribution, credits, or copyrights. By the time you try to clarify all that in sections on a single, catch-all page, it's gonna be a mess.
Besides, a "new page" is still just a few bytes on the wiki, compared to a "new section" on the main game's page. So even in terms of resources, there's no real significant cost. But in terms of sortability, attribution, and reference, to merge a major variation into the main game page has a very real cost in utility. In short: leave it as is, please; it's perfect. We've got bigger fish to fry. --David Artman 13:23, 25 July 2007 (EDT)


I thought that Andrew Looney was the inventor of this variant, Binary Homeworlds? Cuc (talk) 03:51, 10 March 2020 (PDT)
