Merge specific platform pages?

I noticed that the pages for each online platform are very short, only a few lines longs (usually a few external links). I think it would be more efficient to merge those pages into this page, probably by having a section for each major platform and an "Other platforms" list at the end. Any opinions before I proceed?

Good idea to transform this page into an overview, as long as the page doesn't get too long. It's not hard to revive the pages dome time if there is too much to say about one of the platforms. The Other section should be stripped (the red links are not that valuable). --Xenwolf (talk) 10:43, 4 July 2021 (UTC)
PS: Please don't move the MuseScore content to here. --Xenwolf (talk) 10:47, 4 July 2021 (UTC)

Why the table?

I expected it to be easy to move the existing articles into sections one-by-one? What is the benefit of a table here? Not having whole sentences any more? --Xenwolf (talk) 23:06, 4 July 2021 (UTC)

After I tried to move the articles into sections, I noticed that it wasn't easy to compare the platforms in terms of what they offer (hence the Services column), especially if you take the point of view of someone who doesn't know all of them. Also, yes, I think that sentences like an "SoundCloud is an online platform dedicated to music and sounds" aren't very efficient or informative in this regard. That said, if the table causes any trouble, I don't really mind making sections instead. Fredg999 (talk) 23:55, 4 July 2021 (UTC)
Okay I see, If we delete the few whole sentence(s) which get redundant here, a table makes sense. Whta I missed most was the MuseScore link. --Xenwolf (talk) 05:30, 5 July 2021 (UTC)
