Merger

Aside from the name, I can't find all that much different between this and its comic book counterpart. And, as far as I'm aware, only characters and organizations get different pages for different universes. So I don't see any reason for this page to exist as a separate page as opposed to a section of the page for Star City. LoveWaffle (talk) 01:13, December 6, 2012 (UTC)

In my own haste, I didn't realize I was putting something on the talk section for Star City as opposed to Starling City. So when I say "this", I am referring to Starling City, the version of Star City that appears in the Arrow television series. LoveWaffle (talk) 05:46, December 6, 2012 (UTC)

I think it shouldn't be merged with Star City. The best example is the Iron Heights Prison. In the mainstream comic books, Iron Heights isn't a prison in Star City. For me, Starling City and Star City shares a few things but it's a different they are different cities. JimmyOlsen (talk) 07:25, December 6, 2012 (UTC)

You could say the same about a lot of locations. Take Gotham City for example - no two versions of that city in any non-comics media resemble each other. The Gotham City of Christopher Nolan's movies is a very different place from the Gotham City of Tim Burton's movies, and they're both very different from the Gotham City of Joel Schumacher's movies, etc. ad infinitum. And they're not consistent about certain locations, either - The Batman had Wayne Manor inside Gotham City while most have it outside the city limits (or at very least on the outskirts); Arkham Asylum in the Nolanverse is also within the city limits (part of a neighborhood, no less) while the same location in the Arkhamverse is on an island off the city's coast and the Burtonverse places that location on the outskirts; the Gotham of the Burtonverse is also home to the Statue of Liberty, a landmark that isn't featured as a part of Gotham City anywhere else (although it is a landmark in the Donnerverse's Metropolis); etc. ad infinitum. Yet, there is only one page for Gotham City, not one for each version of the city to appear. Unless we want to start splitting up the pages for locations like Gotham City, I don't see why we should be inconsistent and have two pages for Star City - one only for the version that appears in the one television series and one for every other depiction of Star City that exists. And as for the name change from Star to Starling, it's to remove any semblance of camp from the dark and gritty take on the Green Arrow character this show is going for, similar to why Starfish Island became Lian Yu.
