RuneScape:Requests for deletion

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape
Jump to navigation Jump to search
"RS:D" redirects here. For our deletion policy, see RuneScape:Deletion policy. For information regarding speedy deletion, see RuneScape:Criteria for speedy deletion.

As a wiki, there will be some pages that are not up to standard. On this page, listed are all the current articles whose value has been questioned. We invite all users to participate in the discussion as to whether these articles are acceptable or not. The pages listed will be discussed to reach a consensus. Once a consensus has been reached or a length of time has passed, an administrator will review the discussion and decide what action should be taken. To request that an article be restored from deletion, see RuneScape:Requests for undeletion.

Articles that are permitted under the wiki's granularity policy should not be deleted. They should instead be edited to improve the article and meet the standards required.

How to list an article[edit source]

  1. Put {{Rfd}} on the page (or <noinclude>{{Rfd}}</noinclude> for template pages) to be deleted and save.
  2. On the {{Rfd}} template you add to the page, there will be a link that looks like this: "this article's entry." Click it and it will take you to the creation screen for the Request for Deletion for the page.
  3. On the page, fill in the required information, by replacing Your reason(s). with your reasons for nominating it. Don't forget to sign!

For administrators[edit source]

Archiving
  1. Determine the consensus on the request for deletion entry.
  2. Replace {{Rfd top|archive=}} with {{Rfd top|Decision|archive=true}} ~~~~ at the top of the nomination.
  3. Act on the outcome of the request for deletion.
    1. If the result is Keep, add {{Previous rfd}} to the talkpage of the page in question, and remove the {{Rfd}} from the article.
    2. If the result is Delete, delete the article, but do not delete the talkpage (per RS:DDD). Check the list of pages that link to the article (if any). Remove all red links and delete all broken redirects (if any) that are caused by the deletion.
    3. If the result is No consensus, do not delete the article, but add {{Previous rfd|no consensus}} to the top of the talk page.
  4. Semi-protect the request for deletion.
  5. Archive the entry in the latest archive.

Pages nominated for deletion[edit source]

Bank chest (Grim Underworld)[edit source]

Very confusing page. There's nothing distinguishing about the bank chest, and also appears to have been created as a baffling fusion between two completely disparately located sets of bank chests. There also appears to be little value in creating separate pages for every bank chest location since Bank chest adequately provides a way to document them without creating countless near-identical pages.

Delete - As nominator. Ducksized (talk) 14:36, 22 January 2022 (UTC)

Separate - Being granular with scenery objects is fine, but unsure why these two separate chests exist on the same article considering they are only similar in image. So rather than deleting, I'd separate them out. Talk to Kelsey 14:40, 22 January 2022 (UTC)

Keep but separate - per Kelsey, it's early days but we're attempting to create distinct pages for scenery per our granularity policy. The two chest which have specific documentation should be a page each. Eventually the page and table on bank chest could function more as a disambiguation page/DPL list of chests based on individual pages.

Keep & separate - as Isobel said

Keep & seperate - Ideally we should have a page for all unique bank chests (from events/temporary/historical/etc.) which can then be dpl's onto a generic bank chest page. Lava hawk.png BlackHawk (Talk)    13:04, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Fandom[edit source]

yea funny Kelsey, but on a serious note I don't think this should be on the wiki, a place for tabulating information.

Keep - These are harmless fun. Talk to Kelsey 01:11, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Keep - Redirects cost practically nothing and fun ones are fun, for editors and readers who find them, us being a place to "tabulate information" has no bearing on whether we can have fun and joke around with memey redirects. zTUG5mD.png Crow  01:14, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Keep - There can be humour in tabulating information. Humour is what keeps some of us sane. Twigy (Talk) 1HLTxg4.png 01:17, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Keep - No harm in a little fun. We see these easter eggs pop up on Reddit from time to time when people stumble across them. Lava hawk.png BlackHawk (Talk)    07:37, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Yeet[edit source]

Not really related to runescape?.
