Bingo, Crossword, and the Godville Times

I understand why this navbox was added to the Godville Times page — two of the listed Divine activities are Times sections. But of course, the Times isn't listed on the navbox, which I think means there's something that needs fixing. As the honoured FeRDNYC once pointed out to me, having navboxes on pages they don't point to, and pointing to pages that don't have the navbox on them, breaks the point of navboxes.

So, if Bingo and Crossword are significant enough to be placed in our navbox (and they definitely are), that means they're significant enough to have their own pages, instead of redirects to subsections of Godville Times. So, though I may not have time to do that myself, I really think someone should go ahead and write those main subject pages.

If you have trouble figuring out how to get to the redirected pages for editing, you can click here to edit Bingo, and you can click here to edit Crossword. -- Djonni (talk) 12:50, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

I do understand your point, as I was kinda wondering about that myself when adding to the list. But I don't think Bingo and Crossword deserve a full page for themselves as their content is quite... short.
I am unsure how it could be fixed right now, maybe replacing the Bingo and Crossword by Godville Times (Bingo/Crossword) or maybe Godville Times alone (we could argue that wanting to figurate in it, voting for the forecast, etc... constitue an activity by itself).
On a similar topic, I wonder if Sparring fight should be moved to Spar, as it is more often called. (Or change the navbox to have sparring fight instead of spar). --WardPhoenix (talk) 13:14, 16 November 2019 (UTC)
