RuneScape:Article of the Month/Baxtorian

Baxtorian[edit source]

I was amazed when I first stumbled upon this article how high quality it was. It is very well written, a nice size, has a good spattering of pictures and is on a not well known NPC that I feel deserves more credit. I feel that the article justifies itself.

Support - Per the reasons I said above Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk

Neutral - It is a great article, but I support my Lumbridge as nominator. Shouldn't articles be on well-known NPC's? The Wise Old Man article was a good one, and so is this, but I can't support it too. Dragon claw.png Zezzima Talk Edit # SkillsFile:Turmoil.gif|Yay turmoil! 02:30, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

STRONG Oppose - Sorry, but this article is too short and useless. There's only 2 images in the whole article! Not even a PICTURE of Baxtorian! Dragon claw.png Zezzima Talk Edit # SkillsFile:Turmoil.gif|Yay turmoil! 22:34, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

I thought that the point of Article of the month was to show off the high quality articles that exist on the wiki. Length and quantity don't make much of an impact on quality. It would be kind of hard to get a picture of him though since he does not appear in the game. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk

Support - It's a very informative article. Not no Hazelmere, but it's good.

Support - Very well written and brief enough to hold the attention of the reader.--

Oppose: I did waterfall quest and to be honest, baxtorian isn't that important in that quest. Maybe you should nominate baxtorian falls; that place is more important. Noob4lyfe 17:35, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Strong support - Per all, this would be a great AOTM. Lovely torso armourSupirion1Talk Contribs #Summoning.png 21:39, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Lumbridge has way more pictures and information, and you just support this because you hate me. It's prejudice. Dragon claw.png Zezzima Talk Edit # SkillsFile:Turmoil.gif|Yay turmoil! 23:46, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Support - We should have more articles like this featured. I don't come on the Wiki to read about Skillcapes, I come on for the history of RuneScape. I think this would be a good idea. Asparagoose 16:26, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Zezzima, I do not hate you, it seems you hate me. (Look at Noob4lyfe's talk page). Lovely torso armourSupirion1Talk Contribs #Summoning.png 05:20, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Support Interesting! Rune crossbow.png Hess36talk Ancient staff.png 22:57, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Comment - FAIL FAIL!!! You TRAITOR!!! How is this better than Lumbridge?!! It has only 2 images! Dragon claw.png Zezzima Talk Edit # SkillsFile:Turmoil.gif|Yay turmoil! 17:35, 18 June 2009 (UTC)
Comment - Dude, you need to chillax. The same thing happened last month. You decided to oppose articles for non-genuine reasons and you overreact. Statistics.png Lvl 3 skils3 Choice! Talk~ Holiday Signup ~Hiscores 04:01, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Support - Wonderful - it's better to have history of Runescape up for feature, not skillcapes ._.' Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png

Support - Well written article for a guy who doesn't even have a picture.--

Support - A great article. Well-written, with enough images (I don't like articles full of images). Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 17:53, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Support - Per above. Statistics.png Lvl 3 skils3 Choice! Talk~ Holiday Signup ~Hiscores 04:01, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Support - I actually worked on the article a while ago, and I'm glad to see it's shaped up pretty fully. I think it's a perfect example of how something not even seen in-game can really be interesting and worth reading about. Quest.png Morian Smith Saradomin crozier.png 19:30, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Support - Quite an interesting article about a very little known, but important member of gielinor's history. Gr33nday345 19:35, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Oppose This article has no pictures of Baxtorian, Baxtorian is not an important NPC, he just doesn't need to be featured. I support the article Lumbridge Rune 2h sword.pngAjihad282Teh talk - U wants 2 borrow? 13:50, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Comment It doesn't have pictures of Baxtorian because Baxtorian is dead. -_- Asparagoose 13:53, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Comment 1: He is dead, so how can there be pictures of him?? 2: Baxtorian's clan was essential in the development of the human and gnome empires during the majority of the fourth age when the elves sought to expand their teritory. Gr33nday345 14:24, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Support - It is very well written, and documents the history of the person well enough to be featured. ~MuzTalk 14:25, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Comment - Can everyone stop saying: 'There's No Picture of Baxtorian'. It's very very hard to get a picture of someone who does not exist in game. Nephilim RetiredGuthix stole.png
