Plus, "Land" has been used for the three kind of locations: the big ones (our current worlds), the regions (our current realms), and the small kingdoms. That's why we chose to not use it. From all the words we have, "Land" is definitely the more confusing.

"Realm" has been used also on-screen to describe these regions. We would never use it if it was not. Elsa used it a lot to describe Arendelle. Anna too. Merida used it for DunBroch. And pretty sure Arthur also used it Camelot. And no, we can't use "regions", this term is not canon.

"World" has only been used to talk about the BIG locations, like Oz or Wonderland. That's why we chose this one. Way easier for everyone. If we say "World", we know immediatly what kind of place it is. Contrary to "Land".

I just think your suggestion is making everything much more complicated than it is already.

Your current terminology is wrong on many levels. Wonderland is a world as the same title as the Underworld. The show is not making exception for it.

Plus, "Land" has been used for the three kind of locations: the big ones (our current worlds), the regions (our current realms), and the small kingdoms. That's why we chose to not use it. From all the words we have, "Land" is definitely the more confusing. "Realm" has been used also on-screen to describe these regions. We would never use it if it was not. Elsa used it a lot to describe Arendelle. Anna too. Merida used it for DunBroch. And pretty sure Arthur also used it Camelot. And no, we can't use "regions", this term is not canon. "World" has only been used to talk about the BIG locations, like Oz or Wonderland. That's why we chose this one. Way easier for everyone. If we say "World", we know immediatly what kind of place it is. Contrary to "Land".

I just think your suggestion is making everything much more complicated than it is already.

Plus, we already discussed many times this in the past, and our discussions always ended in the same way. Even you, you suggested this more than one time. We really need this FAQ page cos discussions are being rehashed everytime.

Plus, I'd like to correct some facts about your exposition:

  • "Currently on this wiki, the terms Land, World and Realm are used interchangeably and with no real consistency to distinguish the differences between the terms." -> wrong, we use this terminology since a moment and we are all used to it; we ARE consistent. If people are using wrongly the terms, then it is their fault, because we are very clear about how we call these places.
  • "With what is presented on-screen and by statements from interviews with the writers." -> also wrong, the writers are not even sure themselves about this terminology, that's why they keep changing the words. We can't base our work on facts which are not real.

At the end, nothing changed and the conclusion is the same: this terminology can't (and prolly won't) be 100% perfect, as the writers are not clear with themselves. Out current system is very clear, and we follow it quite good for now. Because of the many different ways this show used to call locations, I do think we are good and quite consistent. Without forgetting that, whatever we do, it won't be perfect.
