Pages have been made for elite clue scrolls, resource dungeons, the "frost dragon" (not the ones inside Daemonheim, but the ones in resource dungeons). I think this is stupid. These pages really have no verifiable information as they are just made, have the {{Future}} template added to them, and say that they will be introduced into the game in the future. These pages don't serve much of a purpose, because anyone searching for them would already know what information is on the page. (That the item will be introduced into the game in the future). These pages cause arguments often, as people say they have heard certain things from J-mods, etc, yes it can be reverted and the pages kept clean, but it's better to avoid that in the first place if it can be done. Note that this only applies to pages about which no information is known.

Examples:

Okay to be created:

  • Love Story
  • Resource dungeons
  • Frost Dragon

Not okay to be created:

  • Elite clue scrolls

(I'll add more as I can, so can other people-at my discretion as I've created the thread).

Oppose - These pages can be useful as they are going to be added to the game and some have things like pictures that show what it is like. Also how do these pages actually harm the wiki if anything they keep people on the wiki instead of going to google or another fansite to find out the information.Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 09:51, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

If they have pictures that is fine. What I am opposing is a page that goes like this:
{{Future}}
{{Under Construction}}
The ________ will be coming in a future update.
{{Stub}}

If they have anymore confirmed information then it is fine. But what that says on a page is pitiful. Anyone searching for this would already know it was coming in a future update, thus defeating the purpose of the page. HaloTalk 15:41, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

I still oppose, first I cannot think of one page that is just that,they always have some other info on them.Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 15:54, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

Confused - Uhhh, what you're saying is that you want to delete these types of pages until they are released. Right? In that case I Oppose. 222 talk 09:57, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

No, current pages would be left. I would just want to not create any new ones.

Oppose - Remember Lizardmen? Anyhow, there is nothing wrong with creating pages for known content. Elite clue scrolls, frost dragons, dragon masks, and celtic knots, or any other content known to be released, no matter how vague, should be entitled to a page per RS:G. However, I would say this only applies to recent news/news archives by Jagex and not staff (forum posts/tweets/ingame chat) discussion. Ryan PM 10:09, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - We do know things about those. We know that resource dungeons will require a dungeoneering level. We know the combat level of the Frost Dragon. We know that ecs will reward items that don't currently exist. Those are enough reasons if you ask me. bad_fetustalk 15:07, July 4, 2010 (UTC)

Alright very little. You're right kinda. Whatever. Elite clue scrolls was what got me to make this, should of just made a RfD, but I figured all the other stuff was kinda pointless too.

Closed - Stupid proposal. HaloTalk 15:54, July 4, 2010 (UTC)
