So how should we go about writing descriptions of shrines' trials? I've seen a few approaches over the last few days. Yesterday, I added a description of a trial to Kaam Ya'tak Shrine without creating a new section for the trial's description. Other articles, like Keo Ruug Shrine, have separate sections for their trial descriptions. I think it could also work if we just gave most Shrine articles a "Trial" section with the name of the trial given below. Regardless, I think we should write redirects for all trials to their respective shrines and give write the names of the trials in bold on the shrines' articles. The only exceptions are the Test of Strength trials, which I think should get their own page since there are so many of them. Thoughts?

One benefit of using headers is that we can have the redirects go straight to the section. Overall I'm not too sure about which version of doing things is better.

It is a very good idea to open this discussion. I think it is really unnecessary to create trials pages. First of all because, there are similar trials with same names in several Shrines. Then, BotW generates a lot of pages, and I think trials should be obviously described on each Shrine pages, it is really sufficient, trials pages are really unnecessary, furthermore if we want Shrines pages with more content, another reason to describe trials on Shrine pages.

The way Voo Lota Shrine works will send people straight to the information they are looking for if they search for the trial name. It seems like a fine way to do things.

Yes indeed, however about the several trials with same names we mentioned above, how do we manage with Shrines sharing the same trial names?

I think the format used in that article should work fine, though I say we should just call all trial sections "Trial" instead of the name of the trial just for the sake of consistency between articles. As for ones that share the same name, I think we could make disambiguation pages for A Minor Test of Strength, A Modest Test of Strength, and A Major Test of Strength. Think that could work?

Keeping everything uniform works for me. And yeah, disambigs for each Test of Strength sounds good.
