RuneScape talk:Requests for deletion/RuneScape Gathering 2008
Keep Ilyas, no one needs to convince you of anything, so don't try to imply that your single vote is the deciding factor of whether or not the page gets deleted. There is no need for the tone of condescension either, just so you know. That kind of attitude doesn't make friends, at least not friends you should want.
This is a player-organized event. It is a collaborative effort by players to just have fun. Is that so wrong?
Contrary to popular belief, this is a noteworthy event. If riots are notable (which they are because they do in fact serve some purpose, believe it or not) and are simply responses to Jagex's actions, why shouldn't an event like this, without some action by Jagex, be forgotten? It is all just for fun, which is the purpose of RuneScape as I recall.
No, you shouldn't have a page for your tattoo or your child, that is generally what would be regarded as socially suicidal by making a fool of yourself for the entire population of the internet's viewers to see. There is nothing foolish about some players just gathering because they want to.
It may not be the most informative, crucial, or useful page, but it still is in fact a part of RuneScape's history as much as Desert Treasure is. Granted, it may not be near as relevant, but that does not mean there is a need for it to be erased.
For those of you who ignorantly and childishly try to use single-line or single-sentence remarks in a futile effort to sway the discussion in favor of your opinion, try thinking about what you say before you say it. If you want to be taken seriously then show that you have the intellect that deserves attention.

- Good point, I agree, but doesn't that accually belong on the VfD page? C Teng talk 22:07, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
- There is no need for such an aggressive remark, as good a speech it was. When I asked for a reason to change my vote, I don't need someone telling me I'm not going to make friends that way, because in my mind I have all the friends I need. Back on topic, by asking for a reason that will change my vote I am not giving my "vote" (since they are no longer actually votes) higher value than other people's but I am instead showing that nobody who has contributed to this discussion has actually shown how this event changed the course of gameplay for players and impacted the game. If an event is "fun" but did not involve Jagex at all or was not acknowledged by them, did not impact the game, and was not a response to anything Jagex did, it is not deserving of an article. Maybe if RuneHq or Tip.it has a fun event we can make an article, or maybe I can start creating articles about the Wikifests. Not going to happen, we're an encyclopedia and too many of the things in that article are unproven and have no information or videos to back them up. We can't write an entire article saying "it is believed that..." and "although nobody is sure, many players say that they saw...". Ilyas Talk Contribs 15:08, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
