The dialogue text in Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth says "High Prosecutors' Offices", but the touchscreen calls it "High Prosecutor's Office". What to do... Also, considering that this term refers to an entire section of a floor now, it's going to have to be redone as an article of the general area. (Everything that should have been in this article before is in the Room 1202 article anyway, which is pretty much complete. Funny how a game release can have such an effect.) capefeather 03:38, April 1, 2010 (UTC)
- Finally got around to addressing this... My original plan was to move this article to "High Prosecutors' Offices", but I realized that the term "High Prosecutor's Office" could refer both to the section of the floor (High Prosecutors' Offices) and Edgeworth's office (Room 1202) in particular. I then considered making this page a disambiguation page, but then I realized that the only reason the term was pluralized at all was Jacques Portsman, who isn't exactly around anymore. capefeather 20:30, August 9, 2010 (UTC)
- OK, I suddenly had to leave, so the message was cut short. Considering what I've mentioned, my inclination right now is to revert back to the "High Prosecutor's Office" name for Miles Edgeworth's office, merging Room 1202 back into it. However, I'm still not really sure about this because my only other rationale is that this doesn't assume anything about the rest of the prosecutors in the series (namely whether they're "High Prosecutors" or other "High Prosecutors" exist at the same time as Edgeworth). Some input would be appreciated. capefeather 02:56, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
- I'm thinking maybe merge Room 1202/High Prosecutor's Office together and call it Room 1202? Then merge Prosecutor's Building and Prosecutor's office together and call it the Prosecutor's office? Then make the "High Prosecutors' Offices" what the twelve floor of the Prosecutor's office is called? What do you think? Strabo412 13:20, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
- Silly inconsistent naming... What you said is pretty close to my original plan, except I'm not really sold on merging the "building" with the "office". It's true that in the first four games the term "prosecutor's office" was used for both the institution and the building, but from what I recall playing AAI is that it was pretty consistent with referring to the building as the "Prosecutor's Building" and the institution as the "prosecutor's office". (I may be wrong on this.) As it stands, I believe that "Prosecutor's Building" is fine in describing the building itself and the events within it, while "prosecutor's office" concentrates on the actual prosecutors and such.
- The problem I see with "High Prosecutors' Offices" is that we don't know what the term refers to exactly. Considering that the game uses "Prosecutor's Building" to denote the location of the 12th Floor Hallway, it may be that the term was used simply to refer to the offices of Edgeworth and Portsman, in which case the term is probably invalid now. We further don't even know if that section of the building is reserved for High Prosecutors, or whether High Prosecutors get any restrictions at all on where they can have their offices. All that said, I think that "Room 1202" may be the more appropriate name for Edgeworth's office now, seeing as how "weird" the whole business with "High Prosecutor's Office" / "High Prosecutors' Offices" is.

Well, if no one has anything further to add, I guess the course of action is set for me to do the necessary moving work tomorrow or Saturday or something. Of course, people are free to object before then. capefeather 02:32, August 13, 2010 (UTC)
Design section Edit
Now I remember that I'd expand-tagged this not just because of the table but also because of the design section. But now I'm not sure whether it's worth it to include everything that's in the office. capefeather 21:49, January 3, 2011 (UTC)
