So, what Japanese wiki page should be linked to this "Whole-board go openings"? How do we establish an article for Japanese "布石"? In Chinese, Fuseki is 布局, meaning the opening arrangement. I think this article exactly introduces Fuseki. If Fuseki doesn't mean "opening", we should establish another article named as "opening" something, not rename this page. --Neo-Jay 21:34, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
No. The page is not about fuseki, properly speaking. We should use the Japanese terms more correctly than that. This has already been discussed in various places. There are a number of distinct topics. Charles Matthews 17:09, 1 March 2006 (UTC)
As the article currently stands, it is entirely about fuseki. —Nightstallion(?) 20:58, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

As a big move of material was made on 4 March, I fail to see how this discussion was ripe for closure. Charles Matthews 22:23, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
The article currently states "Although it requires more effort to secure the center, it constitutes the majority of territory on the board." This seems obviously false. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd line together constitute 4 x 3 x (19 - 3) = 192 points. This is more than half (361 / 2 = 180.5) of the points on the board. Can someone knowledgeable please correct this to explain why the center is actually important? 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:09, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
If one player (say Black) had a perfect square of stones on the 3rd. line, they'd score only for the vacant surrounded territory of 2 lines. This score would be 4 * (17*2) = 8 * 17 = 80 + 56 = 136 points.
If in the same game White had a perfect square of stones on the 4th line, they'd score only for the vacant surrounded territory of = 11 * 11 = 121 points.
Whilst, on the face of the above, the centre would be worth less than the outside, it's a false & misleading simplification. White would have played 4 fewer stones than Black. S/he could say use 2 stones near the tengen point, to make an invasion by Black ineffective, and use 2 stones to break through Black's cordon, thus reducing Black's score.
Hope this helps for now - I'll have a think how to make the article itself clearer. Trafford09 (talk) 19:35, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
