Currently, RS:G states that any individual "thing" is worthy of its very own article. I, however, feel we need to make an exception for what has become a mass influx of unnecessary pages relating to Solomon's General Store. I've been following RS:G as I make every skins page related to the store; looking here, I'm the one making most of the pages (followed by Cook) and lately, I've been feeling it's more and more pointless to make multiple pages.

So I present some proposals:

  1. Merge all skins of a particular set into the respective "Outfit" page
  2. Merge all skins sans any weapons of a particular set into the respective "Outfit" page
  3. Leave all pages alone and Mol will continue spamming new pages

If either 1 or 2 pass, there's so little information that actually differs between each skin component that it's easily enough put on the page. I would also like the policy to be amended to reflect whichever of those 2 proposals (if they pass). There will also be one exception: the Tropical Islander Outfit, as it is explicitly bought as separate items; however, the new addition to the policy will require Tropical Bracelets an Bare Feet to be merged as they are bought in the same purchase.

Should this pass, there are two more questions to ask for RS:G involving the General Store:

  • Are these reskins bought in the same package?
    • Yes - decision: merge
    • No - decision: keep separate
(only for proposal 2)
  • Is it a re-skin of a weapon related to the package?
    • Yes - decision: keep separate
    • No - decision: merge

Another little perk of merging the pages will allow us to reduce all of the subgroups on {{Solomon's General Store}} into one group. I've already had to request that {{navbox}} be extended.

P.S. No RS:BB, this is a policy change; policy needs discussion.

Support 1 - There's no point in making 90902149012 pages for Solomon's skins, if they can be merged and anchored like the Solomon's General Store/Hairstyles. Anchors are when you go to a link (example: Mos Le'Washless) and will go directly on the image or wording that the anchor coding is at. If all the skins are on 1 page, wikiers can also see other cool skins and may change ideas. Also, I will add the anchors like I did for multiple pages if we choose to merge. Thank you, — Jr Mime (talk) 15:24, December 1, 2012 (UTC)

The pages are small, there's absolutely no need to anchor anything. MolMan 21:29, December 6, 2012 (UTC)

Supportish - Please merge outfits and special packs, but I think weapon skins should remain separate (except for the ones only purchasable as part of the pack). User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:54, December 1, 2012 (UTC)

You're telling me. MolMan 14:20, December 2, 2012 (UTC)

Comment - How would this proposed policy affect holiday costumes like the chicken set or christmas ghost costume? Sounds like the same reasoning can be applied to them as well. Also I'm not actually here. Ignore this. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 06:17, December 4, 2012 (UTC)

GET THE HELL OUT.
It wouldn't affect the holiday costumes. Solomon outfits are different because they can only be worn all at once, and are not really items (they technically are, but only on the inside). It's a weird new world, Saikoroboto. ʞooɔ 19:26, December 4, 2012 (UTC)
FYI they're not all worn at once. You can choose to wear only one of the overrides. Also get the hell out Psycho >:D (I'm just kidding you know I love everybody <3) -- Recent uploads SpineTalkGuest book 02:05, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
Fine! I'll leave for another year or two. Is that what you guys want?! Why don't you love me?! kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 04:25, December 6, 2012 (UTC)

Support 1 - There should still be the redirects towards the outfit article as to limit the amount of things that we don't have that exist in the quick chat. This really only applies to a few outfits like the Assassin, Feline and Goth, but I'd like to see clarification on this point. Ryan PM 07:11, December 6, 2012 (UTC)

Ya, I planned to spam redirects if the policy passed rather than ask someone to mass delete them. Also, what sort of clarification would you like? MolMan 19:41, December 6, 2012 (UTC)
No, you clarified it. Ryan PM 19:42, December 6, 2012 (UTC)

Support 1 - Per all. Now we shall have no more massive navbox templates >:D HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 10:31, December 8, 2012 (UTC)

Close - Proposal one will be used, which is to merge all skins of a particular set into the respective "Outfit" page. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkGuest book 20:35, December 8, 2012 (UTC)
