Criteria proposal[edit source]

This is more or less a rough outline for what the policy should look like, as it should not simply be a bunch of bullet points.

The following are instructions as to when are when not to use Template:M to request a page or file be moved.


Sometimes files are given poor names that make them difficult to use. In order to prevent issues that may arise from files being moved, only users with administrative tools may move files. If you fell the page needs to be moved and are unable to do so, you can request it be moved should it meet the following criteria.

  • If the name is not related to the subject. Common examples of this are:
    • A series of numbers (generally a default name given to an image if taken with screen-shot taking software).
    • General spam such as "lolololol", implying that the author was not considering the importance of the name.
  • Not completely relevant to the name. For example:
    • An image of a Rune Scimitar should not be called "File:Rune.PNG" because it fails to be specific enough. There are too many items in game that use the name Rune.
    • An image of a user performing an emote or modeling some armour type should not be called "File:Me.png". While the user may be in the picture, the user is not the subject nor is "Me" anywhere close to it.

There are rare occasions when users without accounts feel the need to move a page. IPs are unable to do this without an account, so they require requesting it from another user should they not be inclined to create one. Requesting page moves is acceptable should it meet the following criteria:

  • The page has been placed in the wrong namespace.
  • The page starts with a namespace title (such as Developers Blog:) when no such namespace exists.
  • There is a typo in the page name.
  • The page name is not relevant or is not fully relevant to the nature of the content, similar to the examples given above.
