Defunct tournaments

Hi pepperonipi! It's awesome how well you've organized everything in navboxes :) I just wanted to ask, do you think it would be appropriate to include the Harriton Festivus in the one-time tournaments part? I don't know whether it even got sanctioned by SO Inc., and it certainly isn't "one time" in the same sense as a national tournament, but on the other hand, it seems noteworthy. Thoughts? gz839918 (talk) 21:19, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

Hello gz839918! My answer to your question is yes (this is just my opinion), which I'll explain. At first, I said no because the tournament was defunct, and I didn't see the point of a defunct tournament that happened 7 seasons ago to be on a Navbox highlighting many current tournaments. However, I also considered that the tournament maybe should be added to the Navbox, just under a "defunct" subcategory. After all, it was a tournament of Pennsylvania.
My opinion is that Harriton Festivus, and all other defunct tournaments, should be added (although Harriton Festivus should go in the "Invitationals" group, since it was an invitational, even though it was a one-time tournament). This is because those were real tournaments of Pennsylvania, and this Navbox should help people navigate between all tournaments in Pennsylvania faster. As always, if any other wiki editors have any input, it would be greatly appreciated. ~ Pepperonipi talk 01:04, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
Actually, adding a defunct line under invitationals would be a better idea than what I suggested. gz839918 (talk) 13:37, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
Edited. Let me know if you have any thoughts on the changes. ~ Pepperonipi talk 15:05, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Addition of regional

With the new Southeast Pennsylvania Regional North, there is a shortage of space on the Regionals line. Rather than add a second line (since I do not anticipate many more regionals to be added), I might recommend having the regionals show up without the word "Pennsylvania", since that can be inferred from the nature of the navbox.

That's fine. I don't necessarily see the issue of adding a second line, though? On smaller screens, a Navbox such as the Tournaments of Georgia Navbox has many rows that take up two lines and I don't notice any major display issues with the Navbox at this size. However, I think removing "Pennsylvania" from all of the regional page links on this Navbox is totally fine, because similar to what you said, it's redundant. ~ Pepperonipi talk 22:42, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
