  • There is a disagreement currently over whether Thermopylae and Thermopylai should be redirected to the Hot Gates of Thermopylai or Malis. At the suggestion of DarkFeather (that Lacrossedeamon relayed), I'm opening a poll for this.

    Should Thermopylae and Thermopylai serve as redirects to Hot Gates of Thermopylai or Malis?

    • My vote is seemingly not being saved so to have it know, I vote for Hot Gates.

    • Eh, this really should've been confined to a talk page if it only concerns these three pages. It doesn't make sense to make a forum post for every dispute on every page.

      I will say right off the bat that I thought Odey's arguments were valid whereas the idea that we must defer to the Odyssey map was incorrect given what I explained before about game maps being only scaled-down models where we must exercise suspension of disbelief and therefore are never strictly canonical. Even in spite of that, however, my initial position was for merging with Hot Gates since I had always interpreted "Hot Gates of Thermopylai" in the game to be an extended name for just Thermopylai. I then had second thoughts because I realize that it might instead be referring to the "Hot Gates" of the region of Thermopylai, in which case Odey would be correct. I will give it a little more thought about whether I will abstain or not. For future reference, it only made sense to create a forum post for this if this dispute is of a kind shared by other sets of pages.

    • It can be expanded. As I mentioned in the talk page, Southern Sporades is a good example. And, as stated above, I made this at the suggestion of DarkFeather, via Lacrossedeamon.

      As for the interpretation of Hot Gates of Thermopylai... it’s the same deal as with, say, Legolas Greenleaf: the words mean the same thing, not ”X that is part of larger Y”. Not to even mention that, historically, the whole region wasn’t known as Thermopylai. It was just the passage, the place wherein the Eagle Bearer makes their comment in the game.

      I was already aware that you made this at the suggestion of Darkfeather, via Lacrossedeamon, but my clarification also was coming at the heels of and in consideration of that. However, I missed your update to the Thermopylae talk page. And yet again, your forum post here doesn't present this as a broader issue with the Hot Gates of Thermopylae being but one example but rather solely on the matter of the Hot Gates of Thermopylae.

      In that case, we have two competing claims here, and we would need to look at the sources you guys are getting these claims from.
