Talk:Free Worlds Defense Industries


This article is about the same subject as Gibson Federated BattleMechs - (Free Worlds Defense Industries). I propose that it be merged there. --Scaletail 02:03, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Disagree - FWDI suffers from the same problem as the Irian Technologies entry: it's a corporation with multiple branches with separate names/entries on BTW. Ideally leave both Andurien AeroTech and Gibson Federated BattleMech separate or merge them both into here. Cyc 02:21, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
Agree with Cyc's disagree. The other problem is that once we start merging these companies, where do we stop? Gibson Federated has it's own wholly owned subsidiary, Sekkaris Mekwerks. If we merge Gibson Federated into this page, won't we have to merge Sekkaris Mekwerks into it as well?--Mbear 11:50, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
Cyc, you are correct, the content should be merged here, as this is the parent company. To your point, Mbear, AA and GFB are one corporation, so I would say that it should be together. Much of the content that is on Sekkaris Mekwerks is duplicated at Gibson Federated BattleMechs - (Free Worlds Defense Industries), which indicates to me that they should be merged, though I'm open to discussion on that. --Scaletail 23:16, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
If the others are merged in, merge Sekkaris in too, the divide between is why we ended up with duplicated info across them in the first place. Much like how I've covered Corean Enterprises and the format of Handbook: House Marik, overview with paragraphs for each subsidiary is the way to go IMO. Cyc 00:44, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
Since there hasn't been any motion on this (or the other related pages) I've gone ahead and integrated the content from Gibson Federated BattleMechs, Sekkaris Mekweks, and Andurien Aerospace into this page.--Mbear 18:56, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
Good catch. I fix the page structure to make it clearer and fix little thinks in next time.--Doneve 18:59, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
