Proposal

Hello everyone. I've been looking through the list of stubs on the wiki and found that almost all if not all of the pages for the Unstrung Dungeoneering bows (e.g. Bovistrangler shortbow (u) are listed there and almost all have little information of consequence on them. I propose that we simply merge all the unstrung bow pages with the normal bow pages. It would just be more efficient and more effective for the wiki.

Comment - Non-DG bows are like this as well, but have more information. They have a dropping monsters section (but I don't think any DG monsters drop unstrung bows), and a step-by-step guide on how to make the bow into the strung version. We could incorporate this onto the DG unstrung bow pages to give it a little more information. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 18:07, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, this is true, although that still wouldn't, in my opinion, provide enough info to even get the content past the infobox, even with a high-detail image or two. Also, a step-by-step guide would be not much more than use the knife on the wood, use the string on the bow. Milestone cape (50).pngAmeobea10Talk Contribs #Virtus mask.png 18:09, June 21, 2011 (UTC)
Indeed, just throwing it out there. (: sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 18:10, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - Doesn't this belong in RS:RFM? bad_fetustalk 18:17, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

It should. But either way RS:G says that they shouldn't be merged. ɳex undique 18:22, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - Just add step-by-step guide on how to create them, and that should be enough. bad_fetustalk 18:17, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - You're very right, but being a different item, it must have its own article, as with Shortbow (u). User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:20, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - I don't want to just blindly follow policy, but I do agree with it. We should have an article for every item so we're a more complete database of everything RuneScape. If we merge together items it becomes more difficult to be able to find the information that you are searching for. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 18:47, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Strong oppose - This goes against RS:G in every way possible:

  1. Does item A have the same purpose/use as item B? No, unstrung bows are unwieldable and strung ones cannot be used for fletching.
  2. Can item A be substituted with item B? No, you can't use an unstrung bow to kill anything.

In addition, just why does an article being short merit a merge? Real Nub 19:21, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Better idea - Make the pages better. I just made a form page for the 20 unstrung bows and put it in all of them. It took me 15 minutes, and they now all have a fair bit of information and are no longer stubs. ʞooɔ 19:47, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Request Closure Due to the work by Cook Me Plox and the strong opposal, I request closure of this thread with the community voting not to proceed. Milestone cape (50).pngAmeobea10Talk Contribs #Virtus mask.png 01:30, June 22, 2011 (UTC)
