Forum:Reassess Quicklinks in Guides tab of Navigation bar
The sidebar of the wiki contains tabs with general categories of pages on the wiki. Under each tab are quicklinks, leading to superlatives of each category or whichever pages are deemed most useful and relative to the category. However, under the Guides tab this is not the case. The links under this tab are not nearly as helpful as the ones under the other tabs, and while some may consider these tabs to be for purely aesthetic purposes, I believe a change is vital.
Currently the tab contains these links:
As you can see, 3 of the guides relate to treasure trails, and 2 relate to money making, neither of which subjects need duplicates. List of Quests is already found under the Quest tab, and if someone is looking for a quest guide, they will go to that section. Barbarian Assault is a minigame, and while it is a guide for a minigame, it does not exemplify the guides section.
I would like to propose a reassessment of these links and subsequent replacing of them. Here is one option:
Lumbridge Beginner guide
Wilderness Survival Guide

Support - I didn't even realise how unorganised that list was And nice work with coming up with the new links, I didn't even know a few of 'em existed and they are very useful! Also, the 6th link is to Treasure Trails guide/Coordinates, so I fixed that in your list. Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 06:07, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
Support Do you need to get consensus here on something that so obviously needs fixing? I don't think in this case you even have to be bold since your more just fixing rather than undertaking a major change. I am not the most knowledgeable policy person, but I do browse them for refreshers from time to time and think your ok to proceed. Or to be safe, ask Azliq or Robert Horning, they are both very knowledgeable.--Degenret01 12:21, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
- Doesn't this require editing in the MediaWiki: namespace? It's fully protected, so the proposer cannot do it themself. Support by the way. Oil4 Talk 14:25, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
- Oh yea. >.> --Degenret01 14:58, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
Comment - I preferred how the earlier method worked, but we would have had no control of which guides were included. All the links were from Category:Guides, and the 7 most popular ones ended up in the Guides tab.
We should sort out the "Guides" category anyway, so that only actual guides are contained within this category. Pages such as "List of quests" and "Barbarian Assault" do NOT belong in this category.15:38, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
Has been done--Degenret01 05:42, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
