Forum:New items and new NPCs/monsters
I propose that we should create a page for both the newest items and the newest monsters/NPCs, that will give you a quick overview of which items/NPCs the latest update brought into the game.
This would be something like List_of_recent_music.
Support - I like that idea. But to differentiate it from RS:NU, we could use small descriptions & an overall summary of the update. Something nice and neat like that could be put in the Nav bar. 13:57, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Comment - See RuneScape:Requests for deletion/List of recent NPCs, RuneScape:Requests for deletion/List of recent locations and List of recent monsters. It's not a bad idea if someone's willing to update it, but if it falls into disrepair it makes us look bad. ʞooɔ 21:13, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Oppose - If someone really thinks they can keep it up to date, as in, always up to date, fine, but Cook has really strong points with the failure of past such pages. All of them start with one dedicated editor, then soon fall into disarray. List of recent monsters, for example, wasn't edited for six months before Cook axed it. While the concept doesn't seem bad, anyone who left RuneScape for a while and wants to know what the missed is far better off looking at game updates. I just see this as far too specialized and likely to get outdated. Hofmic Talk 21:55, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Comment - Could you not just do a limited list (dpl) of items by release date? --Henneyj 04:23, February 16, 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps there's some way we can make an automatically populated list of items, locations, and npcs released with a specific update by using the update field that's already in the infoboxes? Or a category, I guess. People could check, for instance, Category:Content released with the <update name> update.04:35, February 16, 2012 (UTC)
These monster images were generated using DPL... 15:38, February 16, 2012 (UTC)
- On an off-topic note, the pageload time is almost completely unrelated to connections. It's the server that loads for those 47 seconds. In Chrome (I don't know about other browsers) you can see the difference between the server and your own computer loading by the direction of the spinning icon in your tab.

Question - So couldn't we set DPL to search for things with a certain release date/update/category? If so, that would make this much easier as we wouldn't have to update it manually. 17:38, February 25, 2012 (UTC)
- We could make a category sorted by release date, and we could also make it only list articles of less than x days old. Then we wouldn't need DPL I think (or else maybe to make it a better layout). JOEYTJE50TALK pull my finger 17:49, February 25, 2012 (UTC)
