  1. What is this?
  2. Where was it obtained?
  3. Why is it licensed as a skill icon?
  4. Why is it needed?

Delete - As nominator. Heaven Sent (talk) 01:17, February 5, 2017 (UTC)

Keep - It's from the wilderness slayer contract. Keeping it since it's a slayer icon, and can be used for page/nav box. I'm well aware the original uploader's filename was misleading. --Jlun2 (talk) 16:06, February 5, 2017 (UTC)

Keep - Per Jlun2 Amascut symbol.svg Amascut Ia Morte 19:37, February 5, 2017 (UTC)

Comment - Manpaint originally uploaded it, from how he used it I believed it was an unused slayer icon that he found in the cache (perhaps it is used in game though from what jlun said?). I renamed/licensed it to be consistent with the other slayer skill icons. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 17:22, February 6, 2017 (UTC)

Curiously, they don't appear in the ad log API; I got the rest of the icons from right clicking the slayer contract guy at edgeville. Other icons such as the skill icons appear as items themselves though. --Jlun2 (talk) 01:15, February 8, 2017 (UTC)

Keep - Is nice for navboxes/tables I guess. Shouldn't be used on the page itself like with slayer monsters IMO, since that could be misleading. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 10:00, February 7, 2017 (UTC)

Chathead/Animations

It's a page full of very old .gifs of chatheads. I can see some value in it, but I don't think having them all animated is necessary and it makes the page very laggy. Perhaps cut down to just having regular files of some of the different expressions the character as a section on the main chatheads page?

Dungeoneering/Keying

The use of a "keyer" in dugeoneering was made obsolete quite some time ago as the dungeoneering keys now use a global virtual interface that the entire team has. The article was also tagged with a Point of View issue. To rewrite the article might not be worth the effort.

Delete - As nominator. Deltaslug (talk) 02:48, February 28, 2017 (UTC)

Delete - My understanding is that there is still a position called "keyer" in some Dungeoneering clans, but it seems to me that it's more like an attempt to keep a now obsolete term alive in the face of shared keys and that it's not particularly common. --Saftzie (talk) 08:58, March 2, 2017 (UTC)

Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza arena

Bit of an odd article, this. Obviously outdated following the minigame moving to Gamers' Grotto and I'm not sure it really has a reason to exist.

It seems it was previously an odd hotchpotch mix of info about the above-ground location of the minigame in Lumbridge and the minigame arena itself. The above-ground location is now gone and I don't think it really offers much to warrant an article. All history on it can be easily covered in the Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza article alongside event info, etc.. The minigame arena itself again seems very unimportant and not worthy of an article - it can be covered in the minigame page where it has relevance, as with other minigames.

Looking at the articles that link to it, it seems that not much really directs here, mainly some complimentary navbox links. This doesn't seem useful to users as an article so I think we should delete.

Delete - As nominator. Henneyj 23:36, March 9, 2017 (UTC)

Delete - It's got a glorious total of one link too. If it were of any decent quality I would consider keeping it, but as it stands now, 'tis nothing that's ever been official. The information on the fishing spots can be well incorporated in the main Wilderness article and those of whatever fishies can be caught there.

File:Asgarnia underground black space map.png

Along with File:Asgarnia underground map.png. These are used to illustrate a trivia point on List of dungeons about how dungeons are stored on the world map. The images no longer seem to work as an example as the 2 dungeon areas are now separate drop downs on the world map and can no longer be viewed at the same time. I'm not sure if the trivia about how the world map works is still accurate. If it is then we need a new example of dungeons that show this.

Delete - As nominator. Magic logs detail.pngIsobelJTalk page 13:48, March 18, 2017 (UTC)

Closed - This has been open for a while now and no one seems to be interested in commenting, despite the fact that lots of people have commented on threads above and below this one in the discussions hub. I will close it as successful because the reason for deletion is valid and there is no counterargument refuting its validity; this file could just as easily have been deleted as "unused in mainspace" by updating the linked article. The files should not be undeleted for this purpose without a request for undeletion, but if someone finds some other use for them, they can be undeleted without a discussion. i can't believe my closure is basically longer than the entire nomination statement and discussion. --LiquidTalk 00:10, March 27, 2017 (UTC)

Dorgesh-Kaan Thieving and Firemaking

I can find nothing to suggest that thieving and firemaking in Dorgesh-Kaan has even been designated as a specific activity by Jagex. The page seems to have been created by someone wanting to promote this as a training method. These days it is not a popular activity for players and a walkthrough on how to do it is not at all necessary. Relevant information can already be found elsewhere e.g. Dorgesh-Kaan Average Chest, Dorgesh-Kaan Rich Chest and Dorgesh-Kaan#Thieving.

Keep Thieving info - Temujin 01:58, April 19, 2017 (UTC)

Oppose in current state - Because the information is not currently duplicated anywhere else, and it would be foolish to delete it without thoroughly making sure we're not losing anything in the process. In particular, the map and Thieving walkthrough remain useful. "...these days it is not a popular activity for players" is an entirely unconvincing argument -- I have never felt that content obsolescence is a good reason for deleting guides in these sorts of situations. It remains (more or less, modulo energy considerations) the best way to do Dorgesh-Kaan Thieving, so why not keep that information? What tends to happen in RfDs like this is, we talk about how the information could go somewhere else (or maybe even point to fragments of it in other places), which convinces other people to support deletion...but in the end, the information that was unique to that page never sticks around. Don't be fooled this time. ʞooɔ 08:20, April 14, 2017 (UTC)

I might have agreed, if the activity itself wasn't so ... inefficient. For Firemaking, it was released at a time when log prices were higher and you didn't have bonfires. Now? Yew Logs are 1 gp/xp. Yes, lightbulbs give the same rate, but hunting down a spot with a burned out spot? "XP waste". In addition, as a thieving training method, again, going into each house to steal from a chest and then move on to the next, and the chests themselves have a respawn rate (so if someone else gets to it first ... ). tl;dr - poor training method, obsolete info. --Deltaslug (talk) 13:04, April 14, 2017 (UTC)
My point is that there's a distinction between a poor training method and obsolete information. ʞooɔ 19:27, April 14, 2017 (UTC)

Comment - Of course the relevant information should be moved to the appropriate locations. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 19:50, April 14, 2017 (UTC)

What information do you consider to be relevant? ʞooɔ 19:57, April 14, 2017 (UTC)
I don't know to be honoust. Information about the chests seem to have their own pages, a walkthrough doesn't seem relevant for other pages, and the XP rates for the logs and light bulbs could possibly be added to a page about the light bulbs themselves. P.S. I don't take the phrase "Make X Great Again" serious, it's overused. :P Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 21:11, April 14, 2017 (UTC)

Comment - https://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/scuzzybeta/images/6/68/Cook_the_chosen_commander.png/revision/latest?cb=20170414131521 --dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 20:00, April 14, 2017 (UTC)

Keep/Merge - Okay, at first I was just doing this for the memes, but Cook raises a valid point. We keep historical info on this wiki for a reason, I don't see why this should explicitly be deleted - Just merge it. --dDbvitC.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 23:34, April 14, 2017 (UTC)

Strong oppose merging walkthrough - I don't particularly care if we delete the page but for the love of god please don't merge the walkthrough onto a different page. I literally can't think of a good way to merge the walkthrough onto any other page. It's way too long to go onto the main Dorgesh Kaan page. It's not relevant enough to the chests to put onto the Average or Rich chest pages. It's not relevant enough to put on articles about the light bulbs either. It's not a good enough training method to put on the thieving or firemaking training guides. If I had to find somewhere to put the walkthrough I would probably create a subpage of Dorgesh Kaan and stick it there, which is functionally equivalent to what we have right now.

The salient point is whether the information contained in the walkthrough is relevant enough or significant enough to actually stick somewhere on the wiki. I'm inclined to believe that it is, but I do find arguments that it's not relevant or significant enough to be persuasive. Ultimately, we should either get rid of it altogether or leave it where it is - there's literally no other place that's appropriate for the walkthrough. --LiquidTalk 23:49, April 14, 2017 (UTC)

Why can't it be merged onto the training guides? It may not be the best method ever, but still pretty good at certain levels, at least Thieving (I've never done Firemaking there). It's also good to have alternatives for what is presumably almost entirely pickpocketing. As for the Firemaking training, this seems especially nice for ironmen, who might not want to chop trees beyond measure. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:48, April 15, 2017 (UTC)
I don't think it's great at any one category (such as xp rates, afkability, profit). I'm extremely skeptical you can get 230k/hr like cook claims. I don't think training guides should be listing every possible training method, since that would make them extremely bloated. Noting a few methods that excel at one of the criteria is better. --LiquidTalk 18:14, April 15, 2017 (UTC)
Try it out! You can do two chests every 20 seconds, and each chest gives you 650 experience. ʞooɔ 19:07, April 15, 2017 (UTC)
230k/h sounds absolutely brilliant, especially at the target levels. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:52, April 16, 2017 (UTC)
I can't believe it. I literally can't believe it. It actually does give 230k/hr. The downfall is that given respawn times only 6 people can use this at any given time (though when I was testing it I never found a world that was already looted, probably because no one trains thieving this way). Also, it's very click intensive and relies on quickhopping for maximum efficiency.
I should also point out that this isn't really pertinent to the discussion over whether or not this article should be deleted, since the training method outlined in the article is definitely obsolete whether or not rich chests are good thieving xp as a standalone method. --LiquidTalk 03:50, April 18, 2017 (UTC)

We Made Dorgesh-Kaan Great Again - So, it turns out that looting rich chests and world-hopping at 78 Thieving is about 230,000 experience per hour, which (as far as I can tell) is the best experience until dwarf traders at level 90. Not exactly a poor training method, eh? At this point I would recommend putting a section on Thieving training about this method, while possibly also leaving up the holistic walkthrough (on the page we're discussing) that includes both Firemaking and Thieving training. ʞooɔ 17:11, April 15, 2017 (UTC)

Keep, but split into training guides - Honestly, I would not have believed it to be a good(?) training method until Cook(?) and Liquid (?) tested it (I logged on and I think they were just about finished discussing it, so going by comments here). If it is possible to achieve 230k exp/hr, then it would be good to keep and update the article, as currently, it doesn't list how to train it optimally. It gives us details about thieving in Dorgesh Kaan, but not in-depth guide (such as world hopping and list of loot obtained). I think we should split up the thieving and firemaking section though. If we assume players are going to world hop, then it doesn't make sense to add in a firemaking. I was wondering if cook can test out firemaking part too. If so, we can probably update that too. Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 18:20, April 18, 2017 (UTC)

Comment - Wow this is really not what I expected when I created this request. Having discovered that looting the rich chests is 230,000k xp/hr I have updated the Thieving training guide to list it as a method. It is hard to compare this to the methods in the guide at the moment since the xp rates in the guide for other methods are tested at level 99, but I put it in as a third best alternative since its requirements are low compared to the main method - though it could well be better than the main methods if we had accurate xp rates for the target levels.

Having done that I think that I also tried regular chests using the same method. I got ~58k xp/hr (may be worth checking as my connection is slow) which is not at all comparable to other training methods at 52 Thieving. Firemaking with light orbs I don't even know, when I tried it I found I spent an age running around looking for the broken lights, of which there were only a handful out of the long list of lights on the walkthrough. I do not think this is at all viable as a training method. With that in mind I don't think that the walkthrough is at all worth preserving: if the light orbs on their own are not efficient then a combined training method will certainly not be.

Therefore, I think the page should be deleted. Everything that is useful is now accounted for elsewhere. I added a little more description and the route image to Dorgesh-Kaan#Other_features: ideally the image should be remade to just show the light orb locations and [[:File:Dorgesh Kaan chests.png]] can be used to show the chest locations.

Werewolf (human)

This page is rather pointless. All it is is some generic advice fer fighting werewolves pre-transformation (which should be on the individuals' page), a list of werewolves in human form (which is alsae on Canifis#Inhabitants), an incomplete gallery and some trivia. Outside of the navbox and disambig page, naething links tae it.

tl:dr - outdated, unencyclopedic and unnecessary

This page apparently got rfd'd unsuccessfully before and I stumbled 'cross the page again and decided to give it another go. Obviously this was written in a time when the wiki wasn't too strict about what gets articles and what doesn't. Today however, this article has no place on the wiki as it is unencyclopedic and outdated (as is obvious by its content).

Transcript:History of Gielinor

It's fake [history].

This article is a player-written modification of the original History of RuneScape, which is an official Lore & History from the RuneScape website, written by Paul (I think). History of Gielinor, however, is from the former official wiki and was introduced when the Sixth Age storyline began - but it was written by players and therefore counts as fan fiction, really. As a result it contains huge mistakes, saying that Guthix went to sleep at the end of the Second Age or that the elder gods created Gielinor (which is technically true, but not what people in Misthalin teach), and that's just what I saw at first glance. So yeah, this shouldn't really be on the wiki (or we can keep it and I'll make articles for the stuff I've written personally too, if anyone likes a Lore about Movario :D).

Delete - As nominator. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:41, May 16, 2017 (UTC)

Alternative history - Not fake history, silly fusswell. I don't see what's wrong with having alternative histories on the wiki. Why should we be biased in favor of the real history? Make alternative history great again! --LiquidTalk 17:48, May 16, 2017 (UTC)

Keep - It's taken from Jagex's Lores and Histories section as seen here. Is yer Movario fanfic kept on the RuneScape website? It was a choice between creating a new version or modifying the old version What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 17:50, May 16, 2017 (UTC)

My point is that the "old" version is the official version, whereas the "new" one is a player-written fanfic. Yes, it's on the website, but so was the official wiki, and that had lots of player contributions and therefore wasn't a reliable source. Anything written by players (apart from official competitions and things like that) is not an official L&H. (PS. My Movario fanfic is - alas! - not on there, but had I posted it for some reason when the wiki was still up, it would've been) User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:01, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
So yer saying that, long after the wiki has been discontinued and all the pages redirected, we should be ignoring a surviving page on an official part of the website which can only be edited by JMods cause AMG NOT 100% EDITED BY JMODS FANFIC AMG! Nobody is saying that we ignore the previous version. Heck, I created a brand new page in order to preserve it What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 18:17, May 16, 2017 (UTC)
Yes I am. I don't care where on the website it is located and who can edit it now - it was written by players and hasn't been edited since. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:37, May 16, 2017 (UTC)

Delete - This version is a remnant of when all Game Guide articles were transferred over to the Official Wiki, and left available for player edits. All changes between this and History of RuneScape were player-made. Just because Jagex mistakenly used the player-edited version doesn't mean we should. I'm not exactly comfortable with us essentially hosting an article taken from another wiki...

Also, we would probably have to list every player who edited it under "authors". Not a good idea. Adventurer's log Wahisietel (Talk) Quest map icon.png 21:02, May 16, 2017 (UTC)

Armies of Gielinor Story Competition

All links on the page more or less link to the FunOrb wiki, the competition itself is about a game that is part of FunOrb. The only relation at all to RuneScape, besides the lore (which is inevitable because Armies of Gielinor and RS share some), is the fact that winners got lifetime membership for RS and FunOrb (which makes sense - they were both the same membership), as well as a news post on the RuneScape site. It doesn't deserve an article on the RuneScape Wiki.

Delete - As nominator. jayden 21:10, May 18, 2017 (UTC)

Neutral - I didn't know this existed, but it's arguably not very relevant. Before deletion, make sure the information is on the FunOrb wiki, though. That said, if we ever decide we want to document all official competitions, I'd argue this should be included too, as the reward, at least, is RS-related, and the story to be written too.

Money making guide/Cutting diamond bolt tips

[[Money making guide/Enchanting ruby bolts]] [[Money making guide/Cutting ruby bolt tips]] [[Money making guide/Enchanting diamond bolts]] [[Money making guide/Fletching diamond bolts]]

These processes all go towards the production of Diamond bolts (e) and Ruby bolts (e), neither of which have extensive use (and hence little demand) in EOC. I tested the margins on these to see if the GE prices are correct; there seems to be little demand for the components at each step of the way. It's worth noting that for two of the diamond methods, it appears to be profitable (much like the old armadyl runes MMG), but the manual testing proves otherwise. Three of the methods make a loss; although some methods fluctuate, this one doesn't, and it's not a good look for the money making guide when there's loss making methods on the bottom

Money_making_guide/Enchanting_sapphire_rings

Zulrah got nerfed so these are going to crash (jk)

On a serious note, recoils are in very low demand due to the EOC and the overall decline in PVP activity. This is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future, and this method has not been profitable for quite some time. Even when it is, it only makes around 200k/hr maximum, using the lofty assumption that the exchange prices are accurate. The guide is also only three lines long. Image below shows margins.

List of items needed for emote clues

Merge - I'd argue a list (two, in fact, by category and by clue level) is a better presentation than a fat paragraph full of links. The list's being a separate article also increases visiblity.

Not really liking your attitude. I am including all of the images that are now unused as part if my reasoning. And as I spike with Isobel in Discord, possibly /Scans/Chaos Tunnels would be better.

Elder Gods Quest

As of the latest Q&A this quest is not currently in development (~1:40:00 onwards, Mod Kelpie: "It's unlikely that we'll do it in the near future, it's not canned or anything like that but I think we'll come to elder gods at a later time"). Having a page saying that the quest is upcoming is misleading and it contains little useful information to preserve as no significant development had been made on the quest. I suggest deletion of a dedicated page until a time when there is confirmation that the quest is being worked on and we have some significant details to warrant re-creating the page.

The Ambassador

My reasoning is basically the same as RuneScape:Requests for deletion/Elder Gods Quest. Kelpie said of this "It's very likely that we'll do new bosses but whether it's actually the Ambassador or not...". At the moment Jagex seem to have no firm plans to add a new boss, and even if they did they are not committed to the boss being the Ambassador boss. Sure the page has slightly more content, but basically all we knew was that players preferred the idea of a group boss. That doesn't deserve a dedicated page.

Template:GEDB Image

This template is used on less than 15 images currently, most of which being from years ago (we're talking 2011 here).

We should delete this template and its associated [[:Category:GEDB images|category]] in favour of {{Retake image}} and {{Detailed item license}}. The license is used on detailed item images like all of those in this category, and we should tag images using this category to be retaken instead with the reason 'GEDB'.

Delete - As nominator. jayden 15:07, July 25, 2017 (UTC)

If I want to view a gallery of all images that need to be retaken due to being GEDB (i.e., what I can do now by visiting the Category page you're proposing to delete), how would I do that under your proposed regime? That functionality or something similar should be maintained. ʞooɔ 01:05, July 26, 2017 (UTC)

Images tagged for retaking along with their reasoning is easily visible on RuneScape:Maintenance/Files to be retaken. {{t|GEDB Image}} is barely ever used, and when it is, only for DIIs. Most GEDB images are actually in Category:Java item inventory images instead. I don't know why we need to fulfil a need to see all images that are tagged as GEDB on their own. It makes no difference - they are still to be replaced, regardless of their reason. Unless there is a genuine reason for this template and category to be maintained other than "it lets you see what images should be retaken that have the very specific reason of being from the GEDB", I see absolutely zero reason to keep either of them. jayden 01:27, July 26, 2017 (UTC)
It's worth noting that the purpose of the GEDB images category was always to identify bad DIIs that needed to be retaken -- Blaze fire randomly changed the category description to something more general, but that wasn't the point when I created it in 2010 and never really has been.
I don't particularly agree with your unilateral decision to change the way image maintenance templates are handled, and I think RuneScape:Maintenance/Files to be retaken is currently much worse than the old way of doing things, for two reasons:
  • One (somewhat easily fixable, but still important) is the lack of galleries showing these images, which was a hallmark of the image maintenance categories before and made it easy to figure out what actually needed to change, instead of trying to infer it from a filename and (generally poor) description.
  • The second is that these different templates made it easy to attack certain "categorical" (get it?) types of problems with images -- I worry that by only allowing freeform text to be used as the description, we lose any sort of compartmentalization of image problems, which has tended (in the past) to make for more efficient use of image takers' time.
  • Another thing that I didn't realize until looking at the page you linked is, because of DPL, we're limited to viewing 500 images needing to be retaken at once -- that's a big concern that needs to be fixed if you want to keep this version running.
You've yet to make a persuasive argument for why we need to have homogenous image maintenance templates -- why did you do this? ʞooɔ 01:58, July 26, 2017 (UTC)

Closed - I am going to create a Yew Grove thread regarding all of the templates I made an RfD for as the reasons are similar if not the same and requires further explanation, so as for now I'm deferring this RfD jayden 04:31, July 26, 2017 (UTC)

:Template:Legacy

This template has been superseded by {{Retake image}}. We do not need individual templates for reasons that can be given using that template. It adds Category:Images needing to be retaken to files it is on anyway, so it makes little difference?

:Template:Greater detail

This template is literally {{Retake image|better angle}}, {{Retake image|more detail}} or whatever. It is unnecessary on its own, and seems to have been created for one of the many reasons that can be given for retaking an image. Though I note, it was created before {{Retake image}} so I guess you could just say that the greater detail template has been superseded by that. jayden 01:44, July 26, 2017 (UTC)
