Attack speed should be added (back) to monster infoxboxes.


People who prayer flash find this information useful. While they may be a small group, it is growing, and anyone can benefit from this information if they start.

Question - Why is the title "Yew Grove:Attack Speed"? What's the "Yew Grove" portion for? --LiquidTalk 02:03, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Woops. That was me failing with URLs. Lol HaloTalk 02:05, September 21, 2010 (UTC) my non-discussion is gone? HaloTalk 02:07, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
Everything is messing up...HaloTalk 02:09, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
It happens when two people simultaneously move a page. Half the history goes one way; the other half goes the other way. Anyways, I think I've gotten everything covered now. --LiquidTalk 02:11, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Neutral - I do see that it's helpful, but I've always thought that infobox should be reserved for really high-use information. Perhaps attack speed could be added into the article text? --LiquidTalk 02:11, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Infobox is best place. It would be really awkwardly placed in the article itself. HaloTalk 02:17, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - I think the infobox is already full as it is, and it should be reserved for the most general information possible. As I recall, information about its attack speed is only useful for prayer flashing, thus it is to specific for the infobox. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 02:15, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Item infobox is worse, it has 3 price categories. At least this is useful, and it takes up less space. HaloTalk 02:17, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
"Its not as bad an idea as..." is never a convincing argument. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 02:23, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
Well if you're so concerned about it taking up space, why don't you make a thread about cleaning up the other ones? This information is actually useful and doesn't have a place it would fit well in article other than infobox. It's one small line, seriously it's not like a huge amount of text.

Support- Per Nom.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Red dog31 (talk).

Support(i think)- The infobox is kinda big but this is a usefull thing and should be added to the infobox. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 02:37, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Strong support - There's no reason for it not to be there. It's useful information, and as has been said, there's no logical place to put it besides there. It is true that it makes the infobox crowded, but that's not a reason to not add it (and what harm can an extra box do?) ʞooɔ 04:25, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Strong oppose It is barely useful and only to a few people. As much as I stand firm in wanting us to be the most helpful site on the net, if we added what helped only a few people to every article, each article would be 90 page lengths. We need to be smart with the infobox, once it reaches a certain size it is no longer "useful information at a glance", it becomes "must read another paragraph to find the data I seek". And it is getting damn close.-- Degen says Unban TLUL  04:29, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

I think it's much more useful, than the "Always drops" box, or even the weakness. This is very, very useful info that should be somewhere. ʞooɔ 04:32, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Referring to our definition of monsters, many monsters with different attack speed are grouped into single articles. How should we solve the problem rather than let it be varied? Example: Forgotten warrior. Rewlf2 04:38, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Just as it is solved on that page: [[File:Speedanim.gif]] HaloTalk 04:40, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
I said the varied bar doesn't solve the problem. The important thing is a group of monsters with fixed attack speed are grouped into single article, and people won't expect a varied bar can give individual attack speeds, right? Rewlf2 16:19, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
There aren't all that many monsters that it would be needed for. Unless you have a better solution, I think this is the best one. It's stupid to not do this over a few monsters not being 100% accurate. HaloTalk 17:46, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Support - As said previously, Attack speeds are useful when prayer flashing, which is utilised by a significant minority of players[source needed]. If information is used by even one person, it is useful. 222 talk 06:37, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Support - It's an important factor in combat so it should be included Henneyj 16:31, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
