Forum:Pages in need of attention
Hi i know I'm kinda a nobody and no one has heard of me but I hope you will listen to me. I find that i have a lot of spare time i.e. when i can't play RS and I'm on the wiki. Scrolling through random pages doesn't always guarantee tha you will be able to find an article than needs attention. Let’s face it, we have some rubbish articles on the wiki. Most of them are newly created article by people who want to help but don’t know how. I find that a lot of these articles come in batches usually in the new addition of a missing part it a series/category or when new quests are released (not exactly necessary since they all get jumped by B’crats admins etc.) But I was just thinking could we have something like Wanted Pages except that it doesn’t show links but shows pages that need attention. I suppose that it would be similar to articles in need of attention but I feel nobody really cares about it. This might simply mean having a people sticking the cleanup template on such pages and more people actually tracking these pages. And btw would it be possible to have a system that automatically capitalises i? Freefall333
- I know it might not be exactly what you are looking for, but here are a few places to check for articles that need a bit of work.

Talking of things needing attention, the wanted pages page is a bit of a mess, mainly because it looks at pages outside mainspace, such as userpages (e.g. User:Mr_webster6) and talk pages (mainly discussing pages that have since been deleted). Both of these we are not supposed to edit. Would it be possible for someone to raise this with the Wikia people, to see if there could be some way of filtering out anything outside of mainspace? If that is not possible, something that would help is a change to users POH pages. The template creates links from whatever people decide to put in, e.g. 'My Bedroom', 'Torture Chamber'. If this link could be removed from the template, a couple of dozen items would disappear from the wanted list. Hurston 12:44, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
