Comment - They can just use the world map. --Nup(T) 17:35, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

Reply - this is for player who know town name but forget what they look like on the map --Project Myface Parsonsda Talk | Sign Here | Project Myface Project Myface 17:38, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

Isn't there a built-in search function on the map where you type in the name of the town, and it moves the map to that location? Butterman62 (talk) 17:39, December 27, 2009 (UTC)
They can just type in the town's name in the World Map.(And why must you make a new section for the reply?) --Nup(T) 17:40, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - im talking about out of game, say you in school and you wanna to show your friend a town, this will help --Project Myface Parsonsda Talk | Sign Here | Project Myface Project Myface 17:44, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

What? The only time you can show your friend a town is when you're in game, and you have the World Map when you're ingame. --Nup(T) 17:47, December 27, 2009 (UTC)
And hypothetically, how will the wiki help you remember the town when you are at school? sig1.png Spam me w/ lolcatsPottery statuette detail.png Is <insert name here> awesome? I don't know, let me check... 20:58, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

comment - this is about what you think about my project i been working on, not what use it is, so what you think of all my hard work? --Project Myface Parsonsda Talk | Sign Here | Project Myface Project Myface 17:51, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

But even if your project is done greatly, but you can't find a use for it, then what's the use? --Nup(T) 17:54, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

comment - there loads of player in runescape well have 1 or 2 will like it --Project Myface Parsonsda Talk | Sign Here | Project Myface Project Myface 17:57, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

Personally I think this is just a waste of time and is just a bid for personal fame. But let's hear what the community says. And I gotta go sleep. --Nup(T) 17:59, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

I suit the bill perfectly for not remembering where a town is, but knowing the name, and vice versa. However, this tool will be completely useless to me. It's a lot of hard work that you could much much rather spend on improving other parts of this wiki. ---Tortilliachp 18:10, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Is this not just a slightly more organised version of Category:Locations (which can be presented in a nicer form using DPL)? Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 20:20, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - What would be the use of this project? One cold just search the name on the world map or here on the RSW Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 22:07, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - It's nice that you want to improve the wiki, and we appreciate the hard work you put into this project... but I don't really see a practical use for it. You probably should have proposed this project to the community before you started it.  Tien  00:33, December 28, 2009 (UTC)


Once again, you're failing to add anything to this conversation, Fruit. I am getting very sick and tired of your sarcastic remarks and snide comments. I may not be able to stop you, but please, cut the crap. Thanks.
Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that I oppose per Tien's reasoning. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 02:02, December 28, 2009 (UTC)
Sorry. How is this in any way useful, or even different to Locations. Oppose - As per previous. Slayer helmet (c).pngImmo Voted Worst Wikian 2013 Slayer cape (t).png 08:08, December 28, 2009 (UTC)

Supporting Comment - I acctually think this would be a good idea if it was used in the correct place. Maybe instead of using it as a map it could replace the Locations page as the proposers version is a lot neater and more user friendly ? Sorry if I seem to be trying to change the direction of the discussion, I was only trying to think about how it could be used usefully on the Wiki. Veritas vos Liberabit 13:14, December 28, 2009 (UTC)

True, but I don't think a user who is trying to find the location of a city will search "Locations." He/she will probably, like stated above, type the location itself into the search bar or use the in-game world map.  Tien  13:50, December 28, 2009 (UTC)
True, I just didn't want this guys hard work to go to waste. Veritas vos Liberabit 16:10, December 28, 2009 (UTC)

comment - Is there need, really we have all the clue scroll locations. And theres tonnes of maps. And like gaz said its a neater version of Category:Locations --Smithing Supawilko 10:30, December 31, 2009 (UTC)

Comment - I think there's no need to do this... Seriously you already have a World Map in game... Makxtrl Talk 20:48, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - per all. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:48, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - per everyone on above. People can just search the place name up on the wiki, or look on the world map. Fishing.png NnK Oliver (600613) talk 04:05, January 3, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Anyone ever hear of Special:Search? Hello71 01:16, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Just because the information is already available doesn't make a new way of presenting it worthless. For example, while you can go through all the pages in Category:Items and calculation if they're GE value makes them worth alching, there's the Grand Exchange Market Watch/Alchemy page listing the information in a much more useful way. This proposed project would be to map data what this page is to alchemy info. Also, someone making a page doesn't force you to use/contribute to it. --MarkGyver 02:40, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

What's your point? Someone could just type "varrock" in the search bar and go to the article immediately, instead of going to the page this is on, clicking 'varrock' and then going there. No-one would use it. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 08:12, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

Request for closure this has been on for atleast 14 days and this is going nowhere. it seems this has come to a oppose as there is 3 supports and 4 opposes. Who agrees this should be closed? Liam - Beta Tester (talk) 16:39, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

I second. Cook Me Plox 19:23, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - No consensus to have this on the Wiki. C.ChiamTalk 14:15, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
