  • Support While not a "great" article visually and such, I was amazed at all the sourced material listed here. ‎20px‎AtlandyBeer.png 18:05, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
  • Support It seems to be the definitive source on all non-speculation future updates. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 07:51, December 8, 2009 (UTC) Am having second thoughts about it after reading the opposition. While I don't think that I shouldn't be featured, I am not sure if it should be featured. Basically, I am on the fence. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 02:41, December 17, 2009 (UTC)
  • Support I read this page all the time and love to get a view of what will be new on Runescape. this page should definitely be on the featured articles! --Mr Zaros357 18:34, December 8, 2009 (UTC) Does not meet voter criteria.--Degenret01 17:23, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
  • Support Seems to be well organized, and well thought out. I'm surprised it hasn't been featured yet! --WCreary 21:53, December 10, 2009 (UTC) Does not meet voter criteria.--Degenret01 17:24, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
  • Support Visually, could do better with how it looks, it is teeming with headers and subheadings etc... BUT, the information here is very nice, and everything is sourced. Bowler225 03:10, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
  • Support It has lot's of great info for players and it's presented well --Onehandsolo 08:26, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
  • Support It's a very clear and concise article, not to mention well put together and very informative! 20:02, December 16, 2009 (UTC) Does not meet voter criteria. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:37, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Oppose[edit source]

Oppose - Sourced references are EZ to obtain, since they're just all from the same Q&A thread. Besides, upcoming updates HAVE to cite quotes, or else they can't be upcoming. Not that hard and good, TBH. I think Dragon Slayer is much better in terms of everything. If we really want to nominate something when all that occurred was copy-paste, then I could copy and paste how to make a Fruit Smoothie, and that would garner me an instant win for AoTM, now wouldn't it? --Fruit.Smoothie 23:59, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - Although it lists many of the upcoming updates, there are a few problems. The other day I created a few articles for some of those headlines, and was able to find A LOT more information than what is listed on that section (mainly from in-game research, a compilement of a few articles and other websites). If most of those sections are missing information as much as the ones I investigated were, that page is very incomplete. I find this should be more of a list, linking to respective pages, rather than an article. That is if this discussion passes. Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 12:11, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - No. This article isn't about anything in RuneScape, just some decent guesses. I think the Aotm should always be something actually in RuneScape, I.E. WGS. --

Oppose - Yes it has lots of information, and its pretty neat stuff, it just doesn't fit a real article style.--Degenret01 07:03, December 19, 2009 (UTC)

Oppose - I'm not saying it's not interesting and cited well. But the information it's talking about is very dynamic. What about when new hints are released? What happens when the ones discussed in the articles actually make it into the game? How can we determine if an idea has been scrapped completely? And will the article be maintained as well in the future? I just don't think an article about something that changes so frequently should be featured.
