  4. It's like having an article called Big birthday party in world 60. meh. Syugecinspam 22:36, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
  5. Support - The incident may have occurred, but I have never been heard it called as such. Bowman hat.pngTarikochi 18:42, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
  6. Changed to delete. Thinking about it, "merge" means more like it gets a section in one of the articles. In all reality, it's simply not notable enough for coverage that stands on its own, and as such I'm changing my vote to delete. A passing reference as an example in the macro or economy guide articles is enough to provide the only information that is relevant to current players. Hopefully I worded that correctly.

Oppose[edit source]

  1. It was a huge price dip, and it also alerted players in how macroers affect the economy. May be coloured blue in the near future.earth(t)

Merge[edit source]

  1. I vote merge with macro because it was notable, but, in my own opinion, should not have it's own article. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 21:52, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
    1. Merge with macro and/or economy guide. It simply does not need its own article - it's just a price dip. Sure, it's significant and is an example of how bots affect the economy, but that doesn't mean it needs its own article. Skill 22:29, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
  2. Merge into Economy Guide. This price dip was colossal (sharks down 600gp). Indeed, it may even be on the scale of the World 111 Massacre, but this can be put in a new section on economy guide. Create a section there called 'Serious price changes' or something like that and put stuff like this there.--Andy mci 08:59, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

  3. Merge with Macro. It is related to macroers, yet not quite important enough for an article. Also, the article is a mess and the picture is useless. Butterman62Ice Barrage icon.png 02:24, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Comments[edit source]

In response to POV, I've cleaned up the article. May be coloured blue in the near future.earth(t)

It is not a "significant event" in the fact that it only effected the prices for a short period of time. Also, the picture is completly useless and an attempt for someone else to "get their pic on the wiki".Scythe.png Atlandy 21:38, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
That picture of Catherby is in this article because many bots and players fish there. And no, it's not mine. May be coloured blue in the near future.earth(t)
There aren't even any bots in the picture.. ChristineTalk 21:50, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
There is a handful of players in each spot, meaning that not all of them show on-screen. This will be added to the caption. May be coloured blue in the near future.earth(t)
And the point of the picture is...?Scythe.png Atlandy 22:35, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
A popular place for fishing is Catherby. This is where bots and gold farmers fish, who were the primary cause of Fish Dip. May be coloured blue in the near future.earth(t)
