Don't sign articles seems overly specific, disallowing only the signing of article, but making no ruling on revering or other types of editing that are used to claim ownership. I think it needs to be expanded to something more appropriate, such as RuneScape:Don't claim ownership RuneScape:Ownership. Our upload page contains the following tidbit-

Support - As nom. --Aburnett(Talk) 04:23, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Support plus I would almost think that since these things actually exist although not clearly spelled out in a single place, that you can go ahead and make these changes. This wouldn't even be a case of Being Bold so much as simply clarifying what already is. Of course, I have been wrong before >.> --Degenret01 05:02, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Since I'm looking to change the policy name as well I'll wait a tad longer before making any changes. --Aburnett(Talk) 05:25, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Support (with condition) - If you simply call it "RuneScape:Ownership".   az talk   10:04, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Agreed- I was having a little trouble with the name, ownership is more than enough. --Aburnett(Talk) 13:20, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
