Problem: A page is getting too long and is getting too difficult to understand.
There are four possible solutions.
Move parts of the page to new pages: This is probably the safest way to refactor a page, since the original content can be stored safely and accessibly, while also keeping pages organised.
Move discussion (cf. discussion mode) to a separate page from conclusions: Once a discussion starts to wind down:
Replace long chains of thought with summaries: A long, rambling presentation of an argument may unnecessarily detract from the presentation of content in a page.
Identify and separate tangents: A tangent is a side discussion that takes on a life of its own.
