RuneScape:Featured articles/Fishing (delist)

I've been wanting to do this for a while. Ever since I created User:The Mol Man/Fishing actually, where I realized that this article sucked.

Ya sure, it's got a lot of information (still is missing a whole bunch though), but it presents it so poorly. The syntax is so unengaging that I had difficulty reading it over one last time before I made sure I wanted to get it delisted.

I'll be honest: The article has potential, but no one is going to go forth and fix it. Not being a pessimist, just being realistic.

It's not worthy of being featured anymore... It's missing information, and, if that weren't enough, it makes a mockery of the English language with its subpar grammar and dull structure.

Any wordsmith can feel free to attempt a rewrite, but because none of you will, can we just delist it for now?

The first few fish players can catch require nets, except for crayfish, which require a crayfish cage. Fishing nets can only be used in the seas. Free players can only use small fishing nets while members can also use big fishing nets.

I feel like a bloody six-year-old reading that. Feature your subpage instead, it's a much better read. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 07:48, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

WHY ARE YOU DELETING IT? The article is important!!! Ilikewiki (talk) 09:03, May 11, 2013 (UTC)
We aren't nominating it to be deleted :p, but just to lose its featured article status. If you're against this, feel free to leave a comment explaining your reasons :).

Delist - It's pretty much just a list of things you can do and things that can happen. Not feature-worthy. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 17:22, May 8, 2013 (UTC)

Isn't that like all of the skill articles though? Blaze_fire.png12.png 01:13, May 14, 2013 (UTC)
Yup. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 15:35, May 14, 2013 (UTC)
So, then, I can assume you'll be putting up Hunter and Magic for delisting then, based on your criteria? Blaze_fire.png12.png 16:25, May 14, 2013 (UTC)

Delist - Definitely not one of our best articles. ɳex undique 02:26, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

Remove - "Fishing lets players catch fish from fishing spots. It is the companion skill of itself [[forever_alone.jpg]]. Caught fish may be cooked using a bunsen burner, and are often sold to other players because of their ability to heal hurt feelings. When a player has achieved level 99 in Fishing, they may purchase a pity hug from the evil guy inside the secret hideout of doom for 99,000 beers on the wall, one of which must be taken down and passed around." That's a hell of a lot more interesting than the lead on the Fishing article. Real Mad 15:42, May 14, 2013 (UTC)

I am pretty funny. MolMan 18:39, May 14, 2013 (UTC)

Delist - Though I still don't see why we don't rewrite it ಠ_ಠ Blaze_fire.png12.png 11:59, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

Closed - This article will be delisted. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 15:27, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
