Well as Articles about players aren't allowed here I thought I would create a wiki about that [[w:c:rsplayers|here]]. Enjoy! I thought it would be good to create a partnership with it, as it is RS related, and could do with some work.Joe Click Here for Awesomeness16:48, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Well, as long as it isn't on this wiki, then I don't mind. I think there'll be a lot of vandalism on the RS Players Wiki though.  Tien  17:07, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Umm I guess so, I'm not really crazy about another shrine to Zezima though. Zaros tally.PNGBladeQuick chat button.png# 19:14, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Comment - I'm not so sure. RuneScape:Players don't deserve articles is not founded on spite/jelousy/whatever against Zezima/Gertjaars/etc. Its similar in purpose to Wikipedia's Biographies of living persons policy. Its there to prevent creating a target for users to flame/spam players. Players can get hurt from such flaming. This would have to be very rigourously controlled to prevent this. One method around this is to allow users to only write about themselves, but of course thats what userpages are for (also, knowing that the user was infact the player would be hard without speaking ingame - would be troublesome with lareg amounts of users).

Comment - Well, you just started, and don't have a good amount of articles (at the time of writing this, one excluding main page.) If you get a better collection of articles that are well written, maybe a partnership could arise in the future. ~MuzTalk 21:28, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Comment/Support to adding to the sister sites - Does this mean you can make a player page on ANYONE? Like myself or just plain random people? BTW, I support adding to sister sites. ço¬Ø

Comment, not yet for linking - It looks like you;ve got an idea that will fill the gap left by our policies. I hope it goes well. I wouldn't be for a sister site link just yet, as this wiki is brand new and I'd rather see it get off the ground before we link it. But looking for editors here and on the forums is a good idea.

Strong Oppose - Completely against RSwiki policy RuneScape:Players don't deserve articles. Would be extremely difficult to verify and enforce. This is what userpages are for. All these requests for partnership is worrying me, it's watering down the credibility of this site. Without proper guidelines on what is acceptable I worry people will soon start making Mercipedia with an entire wiki dedicated to me (or insert player name). Pointless waste of resources and no use to anyone visting this wiki. By all means go ahead and create it, but just because it's Runescape related doesn't make it worthy of becoming a "sister" wiki. Especially as such an early stage in development. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 08:18, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Where is this Mercipedia you speak of? I wanna contribute! lol ;) Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 19:33, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Comment - May I remind you we are sister site to the [[w:c:runescapeclans|rs clans wiki]].Joe Click Here for Awesomeness15:16, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - I'm getting rather tired of every new wiki that has to do with RuneScape asking for a partnership right after it is created, especially when this wiki is all about players, and since we don't even allow articles about players here why should we be affiliated with a wiki that only talks about players?

Oppose - per Soldier. Now that's a throwing weapon!Doucher4000******r4000I'll eat you! 22:47, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

oppose With it being all about players and linking to us it seems like an end run around our policy. --Degenret01 09:10, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Extremely Strong Oppose Per everyone else, mainly Mercifull, Degen, and Soldier. And personally, I don't think RSClans Wiki should have been made either. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 16:11, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Oppose per all, especially per Degen and Gaz. This is what Userpages are for, people... and frankly, this thing sounds more like a RuneScape based blogsphere than anything. Really, really unnessacary. --Beware the underrated. Pikaandpi Berserker Fury!Hit hard or go home. 19:16, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Closed - We will not affiliate with the RS Players Wiki. C.ChiamTalk 12:28, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
