This thread is about the Template:Charm table and its usage. Ok, so I was wondering... how do we know that those drop logs are accurate? I mean, we have no way to know if the information is real. I really can't think a solution for this 'problem', that's why I'm posting this here Smile. So we can discuss this matter together and solve this small issue.

Comment - I've noticed a small problem with the charm tables as well. Take the Black demon page. Black demons in the Chaos Tunnels have a significantly higher drop rate of charms than those in other locations. How do we know whether the single charm table currently in the article is for the Chaos Tunnels demons or the other demons in Edgeville Dungeon, Taverly Dungeon, etc.?  Tien  21:39, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - That is a concern, though personally I like to AGF on the additions. We'll shortly have them in subpages, which could be protected, but I wouldn't agree with that (per previous discussions). Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 21:59, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

I AGF too, but sometimes I see that someone (one person IN A SINGLE EDIT) adds 5000 kills to a charm drop log, and I don't know... It's like... (example) "How can you kill 5,000 Mithril dragons in one week?" (Please, remember that the thing I said before is an example). Makxtrl Talk 22:07, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
My recommendation would be to continue to add to the logs whatever information you collect. The more people posting correct data, the less effect any false edits can have. Other than that, we must simply assume good faith. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 02:02, December 8, 2009 (UTC) 
Just check - if it makes the drop rates something completely different (like, blue charms were 1% and now they're 80%), then I guess you could revert it, but always assume good faith. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 07:28, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

Closed - As mentioned, good judgment and RS:AGF should be applied for all cases. As mentioned by Oli, it is sometimes pretty obvious whether the drops recorded are correct or incorrect. C.ChiamTalk 14:42, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
