Macro (Bots)[edit source]

Well, given that the month is half-over and no one has nominated an article yet, I'll renominate Macro since it keeps getting second place and I find that it's a good article and that it demonstrates that the RuneScape Wiki doesn't have a myopic view of seeing everything only within the confines of the in-game universe. --Diberville 21:59, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Support as nominator.--Diberville 21:59, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Feed to Cthulu - Macroing is detrimental to the community and I don't really see why we need an article on such illegal activity. Planeshifted 22:03, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
  • For. Very well-written, informative article. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 22:41, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support per nom. --Drummer (speak) 22:42, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE I feel that this article being on the main page of the wiki for a month will make it look like we support such illegal activity. How many people will come here for the first time, see that as our main page, and just leave? I would if I were new.--Degenret01 05:20, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
  • OPPOSE Same reasons as other two; this focuses on an illegal aspect of the game (and also one which is largely part of the past now and not entirely relevant); I think the front page article should celebrate the good parts of the game, such as enjoyable minigames or raising skills Khalron 11:33, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose for reasons stated above. Bufar (talkcontribs) forgot to sign this comment.
  • Support The atricle is well written, informative, and an important part of Runescape's history (to those who say that macros are irrelevant, look at your trade screen, try to give a gift to a friend, or try to pk. It is because of macroing that these updates occurred and we feel the repercussions to this day.). As far as I'm concerned, this article doesn't glorify macroing and therefore should not have its subject held against it.

Hello? The trade limitations are in effect because of Real world trading, not because of macroing. Planeshifted 14:55, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Macroing was an integral part of real world trading and without it the real world trading business would not have flourished.--Helm of neitiznot (charged).png Azaz129 Crystal shield.png Talk Edits Contribs 15:07, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Comment - I'm not going to support or oppose but we need an article on Macroes. I don't think there is going to be someone searching the wiki for information on how to make a macro or bot. Just keep that in mind. Chicken7 >talk 10:26, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
Your comment is a self-contradiction. You say people won't look for an article on how to macro but then we need an article on how to macro...can you explain? Planeshifted 14:56, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

The article is not about how to macro (though it contains basic information on how macro programs func.) it's about the different types of macroes, their effects, and Jagex's response.--Helm of neitiznot (charged).png Azaz129 Crystal shield.png Talk Edits Contribs 15:07, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Support - Macros are illegal, but the article isn't encouraging doing it. Macro is a good article, and it's better than other articles that have been featured. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 18:06, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

  • OPPOSE a good article but, now after the december updates macros are a rareity, and we shouldn't put an article on the main page about them, this will in my opinion remind people about something that ought to be forgotten about and maybe even promote their use. I do miss macros in a way, prices have skyrocketed since the rwt removal, and the absence of macros, but i could see that their disadvantages outweighed their benefits. this should not be on the main page however.

  • Oppose - It is a very well-written article, but just isn't relevant in my opinion since the december updates. Prayer-icon.png Matt File:Smite old.png|25px 02:58, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment - I think this article could use a further change of focus leaning more towards the historic impact of macroing, especially considering the fact that the actual in-game impact of them has become virtually eliminated. Most of the article still has many echoes of the original writings pre-dating the December 10th "bot massacre", as such it reads a little awkward for me and perhaps other readers as well. ~kytti khat 12:14, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Mourning's_Ends_Part_II[edit source]

This article is very well written, very instructive, and has many good pictures. It also represents one of the milestone quests for many players. I think this is one of the better quest guides in the wiki.--Varthlokkur 07:35, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Support I loved that quest, the guide made it fresh again for me, well done.--Degenret01 11:55, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support - very well written with the new quest guide style implemented. Many pictures too. Chicken7 >talk 10:24, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support Im still meaning to do the quest, but I've never understood it as good as here. Tobylane 21:25, 21 June 2008 (UTC)
  • SupportIt may be a boring quest...it is a great article[[File:Drunk dragon.png|Drunk dragon]]Cheers! Atlandy 14:28, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support I did the quest years ago but looking at this well written article brought it all back in agonising detail (quest is long and boring) deserves to win. Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png 10:33, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support To be honest, I hate this quest but the article was very well-written. It helped me out a lot. Prayer-icon.png Matt File:Smite old.png|25px 23:53, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Support Oh joy of joys, i remember this quest now thanks to this well written article. I often pray i'll never need that crystal trinket again as i forgot to turn the blinkin' mirror towards that freakin' door... ~kytti khat 12:14, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
