What I have noticed in the mission infoboxes is that they label a mission a "level", for example the line "Previous/Next Level". I believe this should be changed to "Mission", seeing how Call of Duty games don't refer to their missions as "levels", only the players do. Since we are the Call of Duty Wiki, we should follow through with this change, making us sound more professional. Also, the category for "Levels" should be renamed to "Missions", and we should prohibit the use of "level" in articles, as it is a gamer term for missions. P.S. sorry for the fail in uploading this.

Support - As nominator. LITE992 14:27, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

Support - I believe that we should refer to the as missions to, because... It sounds more proffessional and more realistic, Although we should keep the Level on Nazi zombies pages. Besides, in the menu it always says Mission select. I support this ummm.. vote. Dempsy115 14:10, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

We're a wiki; we're not trying to be realistic. How is using "mission" reflect more professionalism? The gaming term for a playable segment is "level", with "mission" being a thematic offshoot that isn't consistently applied. --Scottie theNerd 15:05, July 10, 2010 (UTC)
You pretty much contradicted yourself with wanting to keep Nazi Zombies as levels instead of missions as technically Nazi Zombie is the third segment of World at War's campaign, and according to this proposal, which you have agreed with, it says that campaign levels should be changed to missions. Aside from that, per Scottie. Lieutenant General Emblem MW2SkullRodFrostyTalk?17:00, July 10, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose We're a wiki based on a game; using "gaming" terms is fine. Besides, "mission" in reference to levels sounds like something pre-teens and early teens would use to sound like grown-ups. Darkman 4 00:38, June 15, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Really unneeded. Mortar Icon WaWSgt. Dunn 00:40, June 15, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per all opposing. ScLt. Col. Baik

Oppose - I can see no valid reason for changing the terms as doing so will create confusion, just leave it as is. Personal WHISKEY35 signature Talk 03:05, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - While the game in start menus says mission select giving this arguement some ground to stand on. Consider this if some one were to randomly visit the wiki would it really matter to them? Most people call them levels and we need to follow that like Darkman said this is a GAMING WIKI! so we should by common sense use GAMING TERMS! who will it matter to if we change it to missions? No one is going to wake up in a cold sweat and say "The Call of Duty Wiki says levels instead of missions! they are so unproffessional." Find me the person who does that and I vote yes if not then it seems like more work for less payoff.Foxtrot12 06:03, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - The case presented to change the term isn't strong. "Level" and "mission" are practically synonymous. --Scottie theNerd 16:21, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose- I don't see a major difference, so why go thru all the trouble? --UMP-45 menu icon MW2Cpl. Ross 15:56, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose- Per Foxtrot12. ACR menu icon MW2Col. Price25M93R 14:58, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Please, you call "missions" in games levels, missions are something people do in real life. Doltensig 23:15, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

Uh, what? --Scottie theNerd 14:19, July 6, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Not a necessary change.

Levels, missions, same thing. As long as the readers understand what we are talking about it doesn't really matter what we call them.Lieutenant General Emblem MW2SkullRodFrostyTalk?

Oppose - Every mission is not one level, by which I mean not every mission is composed of one level. They are two different, although somewhat similar things, they are still different. Attack Rhino (Talk - Contributions) 02:38, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Good point. In the original CoD, there are "missions" that compromise like two levels chained together. Darkman 4 02:54, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Firstly it doesn't make much difference as most people say it as missions and others say levels, changing this would take to long because there are so many articles to change so it wouldn't make any sense. Also like others have said some levels do have multiple missions in them. Microbullet Talk 02:53, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - It's been open for two weeks and almost all of the votes are "no", so this did not pass. Darkman 4 03:26, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
