Yeah okay, alt codes are a universial tool for windows that players can just happen to use with runescape. But does it really need it's own article? Players can use their computer mouse with runescape. Sure, but we don't have an article on it do we? (Exaggeration noted) In my opinion it's not that notable that we should have an article about it.

Strong Keep - It has some history (crashes, etc), and I'm guessing it is a common search. E.G. - guy sees someone making a special character, tries to find out how, some guy says alt keys, searches fansites-finds our article on them. Also...we have an article on mouse keys. It's because they are used to powerskill. Alt keys allow you to make special charcters. Not everyone knows how to use/set-up either of them. A mouse...anyone playing runescape can clearly use.

Strong keep - This is used for many purposes. I personally find nothing wrong here. --Coolnesse 17:43, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
Keep or Merge with 'Chat' - I say keep it or at least give it a section in the 'chat' page per Halo and Coolnesse. Alandar995Talk 19:22, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
Oppose - I have actually found this page to be useful. Sentra246
Oppose/Keep - It has uses, history, and information that can be used in RuneScape. However, I would like to see it expanded and made larger or reformed to emphasize certain functions rather than the limited range it uses minus the RSOF link. Ryan PM 10:20, August 19, 2010 (UTC)
Strong Keep - Halo basically summed it up perfectly. Michagogo 11:37, August 19, 2010 (UTC)
Keep - I am another user who has found this page useful in the short time I have been on RuneScape wiki. jHoyle 19:53, August 19, 2010 (UTC)
Keep - But it does need improvement... JOEYTJE50TALK pull my finger 19:42, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
Keep - Per Halo. I never actually knew this page existed before. 222 talk 09:07, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
Keep - Even if just one person looks at it a year, then it is worth having as an article. ajr 03:02, August 24, 2010 (UTC)
Keep - Per Halo. 03:07, August 24, 2010 (UTC)
Request closure - This has been out for enough time, with consensus achieved. --Coolnesse 13:09, August 30, 2010 (UTC)
Delete - We are a wiki about all things RuneScape, not about all things to deal with computers. Anyone who wants the historical information can go visit Server blackout or something like that. --LiquidTalk 22:45, August 30, 2010 (UTC)
Closed - Alt code will not be deleted. --LiquidTalk 16:50, September 6, 2010 (UTC)
