I have a couple good reasons that this page is not article worthy.

  1. It is opinionated and the word beggar can be used as an insult in some ways.
  2. It is an extremely small article, as of 20:05, 8 April 2007 (UTC), and really only tells one thing.
  3. The one thing it says, as of 20:05, 8 April 2007 (UTC), is an opinion.
  4. If we were to have such an article, it should be made like the Noob page.

I rewrote it a bit to make less stereotyping. --Whiplash 20:17, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Nah I say its a keeper!White partyhat.png Patcong talk White partyhat.png20:19, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

1. Saying beggar is an insult...? Its a way to categorize 'noobs'. Besides, the beggars are the ones being annoying and offencive.

2. Well I put the stub template in there, and lots of things are small, like the Ice Arrows.

3. Okay, it is sortof my oppinion, but it was changed by our fellow firemaster, whiplash.

4. It could be included in the Noob page, as a small section.

Side note: Beggars are the most annoying things in runescape. Everyone needs to know about them. I say we keep it. [[File:Pirys-banner-small.PNG]]

Ive added a few words onto the begginning. Would it be wrong to add examples of beggars? [[File:Pirys-banner-small.PNG]]


I say keep. Tesfan 13:44, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Delete. Beggars beg; anything else in that article is readily obvious...Make begging part of some other article, perhaps (a slight expansion to the Noob article mebbe), and refer the reader to Wikipedia. Begging isn't limited to RuneScape. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 13:48, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Delete or keep....hmm....that's a good question! I'll get right on it...with thinking! Then maybe I'll look at the article...with my eyes! {{Signatures/Total Rune}}07:44, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Wow, the only people here that want it deleted are part of the Noob protectors society. Coincidence? I think not. [[File:Pirys-banner-small.PNG]]

No it's just that the page had nothing on it at the time.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 14:49, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

keep - Like player killers and skill levelers, beggars are a "type" of player or people playing runescape by begging and, to some extent, annoying other players. The practice of begging is not limited in runescape but is also very common in any mmorpg game genre. By the way, although most begging players have low overall levels, they are usually own by a person who also owns a much higher level account or a much wealthier account, therefore they are not "newbies" or new players. Alternatively, there are also high level players (sometimes over 60 combat level) who also beg. Fatman4ever 04:59, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

SRTONG KEEP - Very good article! Should be kept! And if it's delete I may revert the delete since it's so good. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 23:19, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

I think is should have some rules/exapmles of begging. It should also be explained on how it is looked down upon, along with people wnating to trade with you and then saying money pleaseAtlandy 02:28, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Keep - there is no real reason as to why this page should be deleted yes it could be considered an insult, but we are trying to run an informative website here, and the page is doing it's job. Matt2 05:02, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Keep - Are there beggars in Runescape? Is this or is this not the Runescape wiki? The wiki for ALL things Runescape! I think I've made my point... Also I just refurbished the article into a much more neutral point of view, so check it out before you keep ranting to delete it, ppl who support deletion.Obese Potato 23:41, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
