When reporters and those checking the reports on the CVU go to the page, they do not need to see an ever lengthening list of admins. Seriously, it is becoming a pain in the ass to scroll past them all to get to the part of the page that MATTERS. Once upon a time long ago I imagine the list was useful to contact people. Well, if anyone needs to contact an admin we have several other ways on the sidebar already. The CVU is to CHECK ON VANDALS. Not to keep a self glorified list of our admin population.--Degenret01 03:33, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Support either - I did this in the first place, and Andrew changed it back. I think that most people aren't going to want to scroll through the list of Administrators. We of course should have the "What to report" and such above it. It makes it easier to check, and it also makes it easier to report. No extra work is required to do this, we can just revert back to what I had put in. ʞooɔ 03:40, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Removing it works as well.

Support - This idea does seem good. It is pointless to have to scroll through a list of admins to report someone. What good does it do us (people who are going to report) to have to look at a list of people who have the power to do something about it? Maybe just create a subpage with a link from the main CVU page for admins. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 03:45, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose moving list, Support removal - I personally think just get rid of the list. Once upon a time, we didn't have a population of 40 active admins or whatever, so reporting could be on a much more personal level. But now it's huge. It doesn't help at all; just link to RS:ADMIN. And if we must keep it, leave it near/at the top/middle, as it is helpful just scrolling straight to the bottom and finding the reporting area, instead of wandering around in the middle for it. We could even make it collapsible. Chicken7 >talk 03:47, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - As I just said in the clan chat let's just provide a link to Special:ListUsers/sysop or [[:Category:Active administrators]]. Collapsing it isn't bad either. And while I'm at it-I wouldn't be opposed to removing it at all either. If people really need to see it, it's there, if not, no big deal. HaloTalk 03:48, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

I swear I'll get around to finishing the admin categories, and sorting out who is actually active and who isn't. It'll happen... eventually... When I'm back from vacation. ajr 14:33, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Support collapsibility - as a compromise that is better than any of the ideas! 222 talk 03:56, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - The entire reason I put it back at the top was because it's been like that for years, which means a lot of admins are used to it being that way and scrolling straight to the bottom to get to the reports. I was personally confused for a few seconds the first time I noticed this change. To prevent us from quarreling over such a trivial issue I suggest going by RS:BB and removing the list entirely. It really isn't needed..obviously everyone knows how to get ahold of admins and a huge list isn't doing anything but taking up space. Andrew talk 04:37, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Remove list - its unnecessary and isn't even complete anymore. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 04:38, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Support removal of list or Oppose keeping at bottom - Sort of unnecessary since only in rare occasions do you need to personally contact a sysop. And if kept I rather have the list on in the middle so it's easier to scroll to bottom then halfway, grab the scroll bar and pull down or quickly zip down with scroll wheel. Full Slayer Helmet!

Support removal/Oppose move - It isn't necessary to have the list of administrators on the CVU as we have 72, of which around 40 are active, and capable of dealing with the project. The usage of names isn't needed, if any, only Special:ListUsers/sysop would be needed if a link is so desired, otherwise remove the list in its entirety. Ryan PM 05:27, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Support removal/Oppose move - I do find it annoying having to scroll through the list of admins (which is like 60lines) but the list shouldn't be removed, as it can be useful to new users as it has things like a preferred way to contact them ect.Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 05:59, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Comment I thought there would be tremendous opposition to removing it altogether. I am thrilled to see so many recognizing this as making sense.--Degenret01 06:42, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Support removal - It's pretty annoying to have to scroll down all the way, IMO. Suppa chuppa Talk 08:10, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Support removal - The CVU is more commonly used (and more effective) for reporting vandalism. If someone feels the need to contact an admin in-game... well, there's the clan chat for that.  Tien  14:29, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Remove list - Why would you need information on the best ways to contact administrators about vandalism when you're on a page that you should be using to report that vandalism? ajr 14:31, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Remove list - It was useful years ago, but unnecessary now with the vast admin population and CC. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 17:50, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Support Removal - Per Karlis. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 20:21, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Support removal - But perhaps leave a link to RS:ADMIN? --LiquidTalk 20:37, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Darn you! I got an edit conflict with you and I was saying that in my comment Frown Korasi's sword.png Archmage Elune  TalkHS Void knight deflector.png fetus is my son and I love him. 20:39, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Support removal - The list is, quite frankly a useless waste of space on the page, need to know who to contact for checking the CVU? One could just check the admin page if the CC or IRC or even [[RuneScape:Off-site/TeamSpeak|teamspeak]] are completely empty, at most if a list of active admins is needed just link to the admin page otherwise it's quite frankly not important enough to keep on the page.

Comment - Looks like someone moved it to the bottom. So, now is this discussion focused on removing the list entirely? If so the title of the discussion should be changed. If not, then this can be closed. xScoobsx Talk Contribs 21:44, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - All but two or three of the people who posted here said to remove the list entirely so I'm just going to do that. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 21:46, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
