Scamming is highly popular in RuneScape. Our article on scams, which explains most if not all popular scams, is one of the most informative articles that our users can read. People who are educated about scams will have a harder time falling for them, and this is to everyone's best interests.
Aside from this, I've recently rewritten the article. I improved the writing in each scam description and sorted them into rough categories. I also enhanced the descriptions on some popular gambling games, such as hot/cold, to demonstrate how these games can be considered scams in that the odds of winning do not favor the players. Admittedly, the article could use more images, but I am a wordsmith rather than a Photoshopper.
Strong oppose - It's well written and good quality, but it's just a list. And a very long one. You seriously wish to have an article called Scams amongst our best content featured on the main page, which has thousands of views a day? *checks calender* No, not April...16:08, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
Strong oppose - There is undue weight given to the types of scams (it appears 90 to 95% of the article concerns itself with just the types of scams). Rather, I think the types of scams part should be shortened to include just general types of scams committed with several brief examples. I also think that the article should include more information on what Jagex has done against scammers and to prevent scams from occuring, and more information on what rules of RuneScape scamming is against.

- I'm not quite sure that sounds like a good idea. That's bias in favor of Jagex and, although we are the wiki about RuneScape, we aren't RuneScape itself. --クールネシトーク 13:11, June 29, 2012 (UTC)
- Please explain. I'm just offering suggestions that would make the article as informative as possible by broadly covering more of the main aspects of scams related to RuneScape, not just the tips to avoid scams. This would in no way be bias in favour of Jagex, it would just help improve the article by making it more informative. Smithing (talk | contribs) 14:29, June 29, 2012 (UTC)
Oppose - It's really just a huge list of various scams. Nothing extraordinary about it that makes it stand out from other articles and it definitely does not conform to the standard of our other FAs. ɳex undique 23:35, July 1, 2012 (UTC)
Oppose - Honestly, it's very poorly written. I have trouble reading it without swallowing vomit. MolMan 18:05, July 15, 2012 (UTC)
Closed - Scams will not be featured at this time. ɳex undique 18:28, July 15, 2012 (UTC)
