I move to immediately abolish the Youtube channel on the grounds of the following:


This shows complete immaturity of at least one of the channel operators, and I doubt whoever posted it will come forward. This is not even close to a decent representation of our community, and I for one am absolutely disgusted that somebody would even think to involve our community in something like that.

Full Support - You beat me too it you little turkey, lol. I changed the image to also include a bias comment that has absolutely no reflection on the wikia. I have since apologized to the user this statement was made on behalf of the wiki. This totally just pisses me right off!

I concur. The channel does not have proper oversight and it is too easy for abuse to occur, causing harm/potential harm to our site. This is proof that we can not have an "official" channel. --Degenret01 07:30, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support - From the second I saw the youtube channel I knew it was a mistake Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 07:31, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support. - It has been a failure. The 2nd post I made by accident, I thought I was on my other acc. I totally swear I didn't make the first one. I am not that immature. Plus, I love His Commandments and I follow them. I don't know who did, but I would like to find out. I was on at the time too, since both were during the same time. That's bad evidence against me, but I will put my Wiki reputation that it wasn't me. -_- Let's delete the channel as soon as possible. This is my fault for posting on the wrong account.

Support - Seeing the first comment is enough for me to support the abolishment.Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 07:59, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Neutral - I wanted to improve it. Others felt otherwise and took matters into their own hands. That's it. Piety.png Smart28 Talk HS Log Tracker Constitution cape.png 08:20, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support - There's not much of a chance it was hacked, is there? That means there are only four possible candidates:

  1. Chia
  2. Instant
  3. Colo
  4. Jedi

So who was it? ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  08:55, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Comment - It was not me (the 1st comment wasn't me), but let's not find out who it was. I believe whoever posted the 1st comment was thinking they were on their personal account (which they can to say that, no matter how rude it is). When I posted the 2nd comment (I'm sorry, that is not the Wiki's standing on the issue, it's mine) that was the mistake I made. Let's just delete the account. But I do think we should make Wikifest videos and only Wikifest videos viewable somehow. I can post them on my personal channel if it comes to that.

You've said it wasn't you many times in Vent, in CC and here. We get it....repeatedly saying it over doesn't help the case... 09:27, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm afraid people will think the 1st comment was mine, because the 2nd was, and they were both posted within an hour of each other. I just would like to stress that point, because I feel like everyone is pointing fingers at me, namely one person. WIKIBREAK TIME!!! W00tness!

Jediadam, if you want to post a comment about your stand on CO2-levels, I suggest you create a personal youtube account instead of thinking that you personally represent all the users on this wiki - because that you are not, and you know it.

I think he has one already... The 2nd post I made by accident, I thought I was on my other acc. 10:54, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Aha, that explains it. A magic scroll.png WejerFeather.png 10:58, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Correct Bonzi. I think we should decide this quickly, but let many others view this first. With this up on YouTube, it will only hurt the Wiki. Prayer.png Jedi Talk HS Log Tracker Summoning.png 11:00, 31 March 2009 (UTC) Oh, I just totally forgot I was on Wikibreak. =/
I AM TOTALLY DISSAPOINTED with whoever posted the first comment! That is not only unacceptable but rude and unforgivable, this is a channel for everyone to share, everyone to view, yet someone goes out an posts an extremely rude comment. I would like to tell whoever posted that comment, that what they did deserves heavy discipline, if you wish to create your own account and post disgusting comments such as that, but DO NOT post that on the wiki's channel. I would also like the chance to say that I SUPPORT the abolishment of the channel, but weakly. I think that the channel is a great oppurtunity for people to realize what a great community we are, however though I don't think that it could ever be fair, leading on to more fights. ço¬Ø

Support - Sorry, but such is not what this Wiki represents, details, or performs as a community. Ryan PM 12:21, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support - Per Powers.  Tien  12:44, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support - What will people think if they see that? Hmmm? Not very well of us! -- 13:09, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support - On the premise that I do not want anyone who I have not chosen to represent my views. A magic scroll.png WejerFeather.png 14:30, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support - It gives the wiki a bad name.Joe Click Here for Awesomeness15:29, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support - In truth, I don't see what we need the channel for, anyway; any videos about Wikians can be placed on either their (or the person who makes the video) YT account. The posts above are simply the clincher in my eyes. --Beware the underrated. Pikaandpi Berserker Fury!Hit hard or go home. 15:58, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support - Per the poor comments, as well as the channel's general uselessness, as I've outlined in the previous YouTube Channel discussion. I have copied and pasted it here for ease of access:

This is what is currently on the channel aside from 99 parties, for those who don't know. Based on this, I'm sure we can agree that the channel is pointless altogether and not worth the hassle:

1 Doesn't the idea of recognizing specific people for the community's tools and displaying them in a better light sound contradictory to RS:AEAE?
2 Random people doing random things. Isn't this why you criticized the 99 party videos?
3 Random people pretending to get married.
4 I know this was intended as an advertisement, but it's difficult to read and zoomed in to the point where everything is pixelated. Mostly a bad representation of the wiki.

In all honesty, can we just drop the channel altogether? There's nothing there that's worth keeping. If people want to put 99 parties and other stuff on youtube, they can create their own accounts and upload it themselves like everyone else does. The idea of a channel on youtube dedicated to the wiki may have sounded cool at the time, but I have my reservations that it hasn't helped the wiki a bit.

So, are we going to attempt to discover the culprit or leave it here? ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  20:27, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
There is no way we are going to discover the "culprit" in question unless they confess - fat chance that happens. A magic scroll.png WejerFeather.png 20:52, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
I think we should just leave it. The culprit knows who he is, and after seeing this page I doubt he'll do anything like it again.  Tien  20:54, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support. The channel was generally a place for personal videos and self promotion before this happened. The RuneScape Wiki does not need its own Youtube channel. Dtm142 23:09, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support - This is NOT the image that we all want on this wiki. I am all for those posting their own comments, but on a shared channel, no. ~MuzTalk 23:14, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support - I did not say any of that. Nobody would catch me on a 10 Commandments video :p. I think this is a landslide, I might close the account now.
