Voting[edit source]

If the votes don't matter, then why are we voting...? The purpose of RS:NOT#democracy is to prevent a bunch of people from joining the wiki and deciding we should delete the RuneScape page (to prevent mob rule from taking over the wiki). Unless it's harmful to the wiki's overall purpose (be the best RS resource possible), then consensus should be the deciding factor.

The goal is consensus, correct. One of the great things about having this rather than democracy is that we can compromise on an issue, especially things like deletion debates that can have several outcomes (notably not this one, however). My exclusion from the old vote count shows how tempting it is for closers to simply read the bolded words rather than the other ones next to them. That's why I'd rather not have a vote count at the top. Skill 23:57, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Close temporarily?[edit source]

It seems that this 20KB debate is going to accomplish little to nothing, regardless of the result. I'll repeat my comment from earlier here: we need to close this for a while and make a general rule for all redirects, then resolve disputes over whether "Tavvy" meets the criteria or not. At least then we've accomplished something other than "#redirect Taverley". Skill 23:28, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Consensus[edit source]

Yeah... about that... don't think we'll be reaching any type of a consensus any time soon... unless someone has a suggestion that we can compromise on? Slayer-icon.png Gangsterls Divination-icon.png talk23:56, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
