Content split query[edit]

I confess that I am puzzled about the reason for the split of this content into separate pages for Groot River (Eastern Cape) and Groot River (Southern Cape). If they are two separate rivers, then it probably makes sense, but it seems to me from the history that they may be either the same river, or tributaries of the same river. In which case, wouldn't it make more sense to keep them together? It's very confusing the way it is now. There appears to have been no discussion on the content split before it was done and no attribution (which I have now added to both pages). There are guidelines for splitting overly large articles and also clear policies on copying withing Wikipedia, none of which appear to have been followed.--CharlieDelta (talk) 08:40, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

The reason I split it is that they are two different rivers and in different provinces. One is a tributary of the Gourits River and the other is a tributary of the Gamtoos River and this is made very clear in the text; already at the top it says This article is about the tributary of the Gourits River and This article is about the tributary of the Gamtoos River respectively. There is a map as well. If they would have been the same river, I would not have created a new page; the bot sent its message while I was working on it. Xufanc (talk) 08:59, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the explanation.--CharlieDelta (talk) 21:30, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
