OK, I'll say now that this is probably going to get a lot of opposition, but I thought it was something that was worth bringing up, so why not? OK, so the articles about resources in a clan citadle can all, at the end of the day, be classified as stubs. I think that, instead, there should be a page for information about all of the clan citadel resources. Does this sound like a good idea to you? Scaper12123 15:24, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Comment - Wouldn't this go better at RS:RFM? --LiquidTalk 15:29, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Yes but it's here now and it doesn't really matter. Can we have some links to the relevent pages? --Henneyj 15:33, January 13, 2012 (UTC)
I assume he means things like Timber (Clan Citadels), Stone (Clan Citadels), Ore (Clan Citadels), Precious ore (Clan Citadels), Charcoal (Clan Citadels), Metal bars (Clan Citadels), Precious metal bars (Clan Citadels), Cloth (Clan Citadels), Minions (Clan Citadels), and Rations (Clan Citadels). --LiquidTalk 15:41, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

k - It's much of a muchness, but I'd prefer to have one comprehensive article than a dozen largely useless stubs. Go to RfM for things like this in future though, please. Ronan Talk 15:59, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Merge - The various tier resources are already merged together, and there's still nothing substantial there. cqm talk 16:17, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

The skill plots which can be seen on this are in a similar circumstance, as are the clan rings. Perhaps do the same for those too? cqm talk 16:17, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Opposition, what opposition? While short articles aren't necessarily bad (you wouldn't want to overcomplicate an article, for example), I think in this case, they should be merged. Hofmic Talk 18:44, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Support - I just had a whole paragraph on why it shouldn't be merged, then I changed my mind. I think it is good to have them all merged into one page, possible called Resources (Clan Citadels). Since the resources aren't actually an item, I don't see why not.HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 21:21, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - Why? The resources are completely notable by themselves. Sure, most of them are tiny stubs. But I think you'll find that those articles are missing tons of basic information that could make them much longer. Matt (t) 21:40, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - RS:G anyone? They can definitely be improved on to make them more comprehensive, I don't see any reason to merge all of them into one bug ugly page. Also, we don't merge articles because they are stubs, we work on them. ɳex undique 01:06, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - Just looking over some of the pages I'd have to say that while some are short, there are at least 2 that are good and we should try and bring the other articles up to this standard, not squish them all onto 1 page What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 01:15, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - Per other opposers. They all deserve their own article; we just need to expand them with more info. Chicken7 >talk 04:23, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - They're completely different things. Just add info. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 05:00, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

Comment - The way they pages currently look, they would look a lot better as just sections of 1 page. If they were expanded, then they could be good as single pages. If people want to add info to these pages, then I'd be happy to oppose, but if nothing is done to the pages, and they stay the same, then it should be merged as they would look better and be more useful.

Comment and Support (forgot to put in first place) - 1) Liquidhelium, sorry about that. The places where you put certain things on this wikia are a little confusing for me atm. Any chance you could move this page over to that forum? 2) A quick thing about the merge. While I do agree that it would be nicer to keep the pages seperate (and believe me, if I could find enough information to improve the articles, I would), when you think about it, the information aplicable on the articles are, in my opinion, not enough to un-stub the articles. I should have mentioned that in the first place. Sorry for not saying so, but when you think about it that way, there's several good reasons to merge those articles into a single article.

Oppose - What, merge them because we are too lazy to turn them into proper articles? nty. bad_fetustalk 19:10, January 17, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose - All the information of one topic is on one page, it looks better that way, it will stay that way. Hair 13:08, January 20, 2012 (UTC)

Closed - The consensus is to keep these articles split. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 18:04, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
