Tome Raider

Normally I wouldn't ask for the article to be deleted... I asked the question in the first place, but recent confirmation from Mod Mark on my thread about it has said this quest is cancelled and may be partially re-used in a low level quest... My biggest guess would be, why is this not low level? But mainly and mostly, Tome Raider no longer will exist. Thanks guys Amascut symbol.svg Amascut Ia Morte 13:43, December 3, 2010 (UTC)

Support - I agree that the article has no use now. There's a slim chance that this quest will be released in the distant future and that's not enough to keep an article. Dontlietome7 19:42, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Thanks! I'd also like to mention that Mark said they were reusing some of the graphics, so I don't think this quest will ever show up now. Just more Ewain quests. Amascut symbol.svg Amascut Ia Morte 19:59, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

Neutral - Well, they said they were going to make it at one point, so it could be kept for that reason, but Deepstone Keep comes to mind, and there's no article on that (as far as I know)... Real Nub 20:12, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

Changed to Keep per the fact that it's article-worthy, and does no harm. Real Nub 23:17, December 26, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Delete - It's cancelled? Boo. ----クールネシトーク 20:32, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

I've linked it so it's less confusing. Dontlietome7 20:05, December 15, 2010 (UTC)

Delete - I'd delete the page, but have the sysop offer a reason like "cancelled quest" when they go to delete. Farming cape (t).png Lil cloud 9 Talk 23:36, December 14, 2010 (UTC)

I got advice for you: Don't watch the small things(name change of a namespace when we want drop logs for all monsters, summary when deleting) but watch the big changes: drop logs and deleting. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 22:58, December 15, 2010 (UTC)

Partial delete - I do want some kind of mentioning somewhere. I don't know where it fits though. best is, like Ciphrius Kane said below, on Signature Heroes page. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 22:58, December 15, 2010 (UTC)

Merge with Signature Heroes - Like Joey kinda said, it needs mentioning somewhere. As Sir Ewain is a Signature Hero, put it there What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 00:03, December 16, 2010 (UTC)

Ye that is a good place to mention it. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 15:26, December 16, 2010 (UTC)
Agreed, but be sure to mention the quest will no longer exist! Amascut symbol.svg Amascut Ia Morte 18:54, December 16, 2010 (UTC)

Keep - I have partial re-written the page. It should be kept as a historical page as it is confirmed it was a planned quest but was cancelled and that deserves it's own article. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 11:17, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

So? There are so many cancelled quests, and we haven't a single one of them as an article, or even mentioned in an article, for that matter... ----クールネシトーク 02:38, December 19, 2010 (UTC)
That's not a good reason to delete this. Just because a mistake was done somewhere else doesn't mean we should do the same here. bad_fetustalk 19:28, January 3, 2011 (UTC)
How many quests can you think of, that Jagex stated to be in the works but then cancelled? I can think of one - Tome Raider. Real Nub 07:44, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

Keep - It's part of the history of RS. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 16:03, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

Strong oppose - Yay, another request to delete information! bad_fetustalk 15:02, December 26, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Chess, what information? The quest is never going to exist, and here's what we knew about it: It was called Tome Raider, it starred Sir Ewain, and we're rescuing from some prison. not alot of information there... deleting it makes sense, as it is a canceled quest, that we know next to nothing about. Amascut symbol.svg Amascut Ia Morte 17:56, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

I didn't say it's a lot of information. I said it's information. Then, I don't see how it makes sense. We are the wiki about everything about RuneScape, I believe that includes cancelled quests which have previously been confirmed, which makes them a part of RuneScape history. bad_fetustalk 19:23, January 3, 2011 (UTC)

Delete it - It has been comfirmed that it was cancelled, so there's no point in keeping it, seeing as it won't be released and never was. -Hourglass (2011 Hallowe'en event) detail.png I Am Me Talk III The Spark.png- 00:14, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

Changed my opinion to Keep - Per everyone else who woted keep. -Hourglass (2011 Hallowe'en event) detail.png I Am Me Talk III The Spark.png- 14:16, January 9, 2011 (UTC)

Keep - Per Zamorak. Just because it was canceled content doesn't mean it should be deleted. We still have the Eye rewards from Dungeoneering even though they were canceled. ɳex undique 02:06, January 6, 2011 (UTC)

Keep - We have articles for other cancelled content, and why not this one? It's all part of compiling information as an encyclopaedia. Do you see other encyclopaedias deleting content that never eventuated? 222 talk 07:05, January 6, 2011 (UTC)

Keep - There are a huge number of articles on the Wiki about information that exists beyond the game of RuneScape itself. Were the information from this merged into another page, information about its plot and development history would have to be condensed. The information can be covered more thoroughly and effectively, not to mention less intrusively, on an independent article. Quest.png Morian Smith Saradomin crozier.png 22:34, January 6, 2011 (UTC)

Delete - but make sure you Delete the article for Romeo and Juliet as well! After all, even if it was in game for a while, it was cancelled and removed! (Note; this is actually a Keep) Armadyl symbol.png Nightgunner Talk Illuminated Book of Law.png 17:25, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

Ye, that's different. R&J was in game actually. Tome Raider wasn't. That's a difference. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 00:14, January 10, 2011 (UTC)
Compare it to Lizardmen, Mammoths, or Wilderness Tag, then. ʞooɔ 02:00, January 10, 2011 (UTC)

Keep- We should keep it since its historical and its interesting to know what made it into the game and what didn't. Not too many people know that Sebastian Gno or the Eye of the Warrior were ever planned for example. If we don't keep it, then we should make a page that lists all of the cancelled content. Krayfish 02:16, January 10, 2011 (UTC)

Closed - This article will not be deleted. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 23:07, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
