Name

The actual name is Tug. Why not title this either Tug (boat) or Tug (GTA IV)? Grsz11 18:10, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Whilst that is how Wikipedia chooses to do it, it's not how we do it here. We only use brackets when we can't do something similar like this, since the word "boat" is simpler than openbracket-boat-closebracket, making the article easier to find, easier to search for, and easier to link to. This is also why we have Police Car (since Police is about the police force in general, and Police (car) is less intuitive). Also, we wouldn't use Tug (GTA IV) for the same reasons (what happens if its GTA 5 - do we start using silly things like Tug (GTA IV & GTA 5)?); but like we use Cheats in GTA IV because that is simpler and easier to find than Cheats (GTA IV).

Why not just merge this article with Tug, and leave "Tug Boat" as a redirect?. I know the GTA SA Tug and the GTA IV Tug are two completely different vehicles, but the same thing has been done with Speeder (a car in GTA 1, and a speedboat in the GTA III Era). As long as the two renditions of the vehicle are clearly set apart within the article, then it shouldn't be a problem. Hardrock182 02:10, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
