Merging with Challenge Mode (disambiguation)?[edit]

Originally, Challenge on its own was used to define Mushroom challenges, when those were the only challenge in Pikmin Bloom. Nowever, now that Challenge (on its own) is a disambiguation page, I think it might be useful to meld it with the pre-existing Challenge Mode disambiguation page associated with the challenge modes of the main series. Especially since Challenge Mode is linked to on this page, causing a disambiguation page to link you to... Another disambiguation page. It feels very silly. We obviously are not in the jurisdiction to merge pages, especially key disambiguation pages, but what do y'all think? Camwoodstock (talk) 15:13, May 1, 2022 (EDT)

There's a precedent for doing something like this; we used to have an Amusement park disambiguation page, and then I made a Park disambiguation page that linked to the Amusement park page, and then Espyo merged them together. That said, I'm not sure if that's the right idea here. There are 2 distinct things in the Pikmin series called "Challenge Mode", and it makes sense that there be a disambiguation page between them. So it's hard to say what the best option here is. — Soprano(talk) 17:35, May 1, 2022 (EDT)
I briefly mentioned on Pikcord, but I believe "Mushroom challenge" should just be "Mushroom", since that's the official, non-ambiguous, complete name of the subject in the game. That point may or may not help make this decision. As for the decision itself, I think both work. There's nothing wrong with a disambiguation page linking to other disambiguation pages per se. It's like if you're driving down the road, some signs will tell you of nearby locations, but if what you want is in a completely different county, you'll have to drive to that county first and only then read the signs. If there were a lot of items that "challenge" could refer to, and a lot of items that "Challenge Mode" could refer to, then two disambiguation pages (that link to each other) would make sense, so that there isn't one gigantic, hard-to-follow page. But as it stands, merging them might work. Another thing that occurred to me: some articles on the wiki link to "Challenge Mode" on purpose (some may link to it accidentally when they're actually meant to link to a specific game's Challenge Mode). It's important to think if having those pages link to a combined challenge disambiguation page instead is a good idea or not. — {EspyoT} 11:13, May 21, 2022 (EDT)
