I recently compiled and added a references and citation guide to the style guide per unanimous support on Forum:How to: Citations. As I was adding it, I got a crazy, mad, daft, and generally wonky idea to create citation templates (similar to our longtime {{Cite web}} and {{Cite news}} templates) specifically catered to the type of references used most commonly on the RS Wiki. Props to Gaz for doing most of the work (though Quarenon helped too!). As things came together, I started to realise that this was a good candidate for a project! So I made up a project page at RuneScape:Citations for your review.

Proposal: Formally adopt RuneScape:Citations as a project as described on the project page.

Comment - What is the Recent Activity section for? Can't believe no one else signed the members list. Shame on j00! --Iiii I I I 00:29, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

I was thinking of using it to notify peoples of template changes, new templates, or any other changes relevant to citations. I basically just stole everything from RS:IM and changed stuff from images to citations >_> kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 07:01, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

Support - PWNAGE CITATIONS!! Manshadow8 (talkcontribs) forgot to sign this comment on 04:15, December 9, 2009 (UTC).

Support as a Wikiguild project - I don't see anything wrong here as a project, and this is indeed something I genuinely want to support. This said, what policy is actually being enacted here? That content on this wiki should have citations? I see very little in actual policy that is on this page, and I don't really think it fits as a policy at all. Yes, I could think of some actual policies that could apply in terms of how citations ought to be handled on this project, but this page seems like the wrong place to put those policy statements as well. --Robert Horning 16:28, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

Support - Per everyone else. Slayer helmet.png Monstermas22 Slayer cape (t).png 17:58, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - I didn't have the right understanding of what this discussion was about when I wrote my previous message. But now that I know that it is about making Citations a policy and not about making a Citation guide, I would like to give a more relevant comment: I think it could be quite a good idea, but adding citations to every single article would take ALOT of time. In my opinion, that might be too ambitious. However, I believe that if this project is successful, this wikia would be an unmatched source for all things RuneScape. --KoHeLeS 05:19, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Support - per all. and I prefer peanut butter twix if you're still rewarding supports (wink wink nudge nudge say no more) Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 08:54, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Closed - RuneScape:Citations will be adopted as a WikiProject. C.ChiamTalk 15:24, December 11, 2009 (UTC)
