Put very shortly, the rules are being ignored constantly, even to the point of posters making topics about breaking Jagex rules. Old topics are being bumped continuously and usually responded to with rude posts and mocking, and most rulebreakers go unpunished.

That is why I believe we should "wipe" the forums clean and start them over. I do not believe that RS:DDD applies here, as this is about the forums and not the actual wiki. So, yeah, I'm in a hurry to get to dinner, but that's what I think. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 20:41, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Discussion

Comment - That post hardly counts, it was just a spammer like the ones most forums have. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 21:04, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - First of all, forum discussions should take place on the forums themselves, not the Yew Grove. Many people here don't even use the wiki forums. Secondly, if people are breaking the rules, we educate them. Deleting every topic is not going to stop people from breaking the rules, it's just going to give us zero topics and discourage activity.

Oppose - per Andrew. People can do whatever they want with the forums, as long as they don't break rules, and if they do, educate them. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 23:12, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Andrew. If there's rulebreakers, we either ban them or educate them as said above. The forum is barely used and most of our f-admins are retired/gone. It's not worth the hassle of destroying and rebuilding. Zaros symbol.pngChaos Monk Talk SignCoins 250.png 00:51, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Andrew. No point in wiping it, just do what we would do for Yew Grove spammers. - [Pharos] 02:20, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per above. HaloTalk 04:06, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Andrew, let's send them to the Gulag. 222 talk 06:22, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Neutral - Meh, I can see your point, but I doubt deleting everything would help. bad_fetustalk 09:45, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

I actually sometimes do that. bad_fetustalk 09:50, August 19, 2010 (UTC)
Nevermind, I thought we were burning the fly. bad_fetustalk 09:50, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per all. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 02:34, August 21, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Clearing the forums won't stop that kind of thing from happening; it'll only serve to make people with active forum threads mad. Sir Punchula 05:47, August 23, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - While I can see your reasoning, it will undoubtedly cause more harm than it will good. Ruud (talk)(Suggest me naems) 15:44, August 23, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - The forums will not be reset at this time. ajr 23:14, August 27, 2010 (UTC)
