I've gone ahead and made a sample of what a "Planned Updates" article would look like here: User:Nequillim/Planned_Updates.

My question: Is it worthy of being an article?
My question: If it is, which article name would be most appropriate: Planned Updates, Future Updates, Confirmed Updates, Future Events, Confirmed Future Updates, other?

Why I think such an article would be good:

  • It would be an articlization of the current Future Events category, but being an article, it would contain more information otherwise not article-worthy in itself, at this point (for example: new skill, "noob-free" worlds).
  • It would consolidate all planned updates in one place.
  • Only official Jagex-confirmed plans would be added.
  • All statements would require to be linked to source site (proof), so that players can check when it was stated, and by whom.
  • It could become a Popular Article, where users go to check, and remind themselves, of what has been promised by Jagex for RuneScape's future.

What do you think, fellow RuneScape Wiki users?--Nequillim 04:02, September 8, 2009 (UTC)

Support - I like it and think the draft you put together looks good. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 05:14, September 8, 2009 (UTC)

Support - I like the idea. But it should really specify not to add anything not officially confirmed by Jagex. Kind of important. — Enigma 05:31, September 8, 2009 (UTC)

Kinda said that already. "Only official Jagex-confirmed plans would be added.". Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 06:49, September 8, 2009 (UTC)
Yes, it is stated in the article and furthermore in hidden comments, when editing the article. --Nequillim 05:56, September 9, 2009 (UTC)

Support - Just don't use the word "promised". Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 05:37, September 8, 2009 (UTC)

Support - Seems like a good idea. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  06:01, September 8, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - The page is more like a list, compared to an article. I would propose that we followed the format used in 2010. Then, we can call it: "Upcoming updates". Currently, the more appropriate name for this page would be "List of upcoming updates".   az talk   12:07, September 8, 2009 (UTC)

Support - Everything nice and categorised. And all other names could be redirects. Now that's a throwing weapon!Doucher4000******r4000I'll eat you! 02:41, September 9, 2009 (UTC)

Good ideas, Az. There's a whole series of "List of ..." articles that I wasn't aware of. I'll make it in 2010 article form and see how it looks. --Nequillim 05:56, September 9, 2009 (UTC)

Update: Done

Taking the advice of Az, I decided to make it in the same format as the 2010 article, using cquote2 templates to provide the citations right in the article. The article can now be reached at Upcoming updates. If I've missed anything, feel free to add it in and to help keep the article up-to-date. --Nequillim 08:40, September 9, 2009 (UTC)
