Ok, these are really bugging me. RuneScape is not WoW. We all know that. We don't need the reasons why, however we need to focus on graphics. We know RuneScape does not have great graphics. The sane players ignore it, and accept that nearly every item or piece of scenery will have issues once in a while. But what everyone needs to realize, is that these aren't "glitches." They're graphical issues. So some of these bs "glitch" articles are just graphic abnormalities. Someone standing in a wall? Yeah, you can do that nearly anywhere. We are not going to document every one of those. Someone wearing a bedsheet at Pest Control? Yeah, that's a glitch, because it was only supposed to be possible to wear it in Port Phasmatys. Carpet rides in Draynor, glitch. Something that "caused players to lean in an unusual way"? No. Honestly, what is the point of that? Does that even interest you in the least? I think we need to get rid of all graphical "glitch" articles and images. Christine 16:11, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Agreeing with Christine for same reason. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko)
I don't have any real position on this. I kind of like the idea of including these things just as "sidebar" articles, as in, special/common interest things. They make me laugh. Sure they're to be expected with new updates, but what's the harm in keeping them around? I would understand perhaps getting rid of ones that have been fixed and were also not notable (such as the leaning glitch), but for ones that are still active, I say why not include them? Maybe someone will have fun with it. The other day I was woodcutting for the first time in a few years, and a guy went up to a tree, did the cut emote and immediately cut down the tree (the axe animation didn't take place). The tree looked like it fell down as a result of the guy clapping, and I thought it was funny. Maybe if you posted a few more examples of ones you thought should be deleted, I could form a better opinion...Endasil (Talk) @ 16:41, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Accually, a glitch causing players to lean in an unusual way does sort of interest me. I don't see anything wrong with those glitches, as long as they are glitches, they should stay in the article. partyhat.png C Teng 17:50, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Support - Christine is right. Although they can be considered "glitches" , since they are faults in the game graphics, although that depends on how you define "glitch", there are too many to document and they aren't really of much interest. Perhaps we shouldn't delete them, but just merge them into the article they belong in? I mean they are worth some notice, but not an entire page of their own. Maybe a sentence or two in the appropriate article.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 20:36, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Causing players to lean in an unusual way is merged with Glitch. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 00:32, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
I think we should merge everything from Category:Glitches and errors into the Glitch article, with the exception of the World 111 and Party hat duplication glitches. Seriously, look at this. Christine 00:40, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, that should be merged, at least. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 00:43, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
No, I mean if there was a certain item that had a graphic error in it (like the Dragon Kite) then we shouln'd mention it in the glitches article but rather in the Dragon Kite article (just an example).Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 20:05, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
I agree that we shouldn't have glitch articles. But one image of important glitches is good. And I think Ilyas has a point. We should mention npc, item, etc. related glitches on its page. Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 07:44, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
But why? What's wrong with glitch articles? The minor ones should be in the Glitches page, but some are long enough to deserve their own articles. White partyhat.png C Teng talk 15:06, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
