This talk page is for discussing the RuneScape:Yew Grove page.

Improvements[edit source]

Does anyone have any thoughts on how this page can be improved? I'd like to make this as useful as possible. Skill 03:17, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

We could make a link to it from the Main Page. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:46, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
It's been given a link from the sidebar. That should improve it. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 00:32, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Time limit[edit source]

Do/should we have a time limit to discuss before an administrator or bureaucrat decides? Butterman62 (talk) Ice Barrage icon.png 02:31, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Nah, maybe have notices of intent if discussions are taking too long, but I don't like having a firm time limit. Skill 03:34, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Archive[edit source]

The page is 81 kilobytes long, should we archive it now? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 19:06, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

There has been ongoing archiving for a week or two now, as the Archive box at the top of the page shows. Archiving doesn't just take place all at once, we just move a discussion to an archive whenever it's been concluded. Sometimes it helps if the original authors make it clear whether their concern/question was addressed, and whether they are satisfied with the discussion. Other than that, it's tough to say when discussions are closed. Endasil (Talk) @ 23:45, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Could we create subpages to actually hold the active discussions on, with the main page just linking to the discussion subpages? I guess that would make it more like the old forums than anything, but it would cut the main page size down and make it a bit easier to find each topic. Pointy 23:49, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
The archive is way too long now; I suggest we split it into four smaller ones. We shouldn't just archive everything into one discussion. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 23:25, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
About the recent archiving, there was a couple of discussions that were still ongoing. Should we de-archive them? Chicken7 >talk 13:44, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
Most of them were still going. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 14:06, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
So should we bring them back? Chicken7 >talk 14:22, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
I'm reverting the edits. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 14:32, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
I've archived it only because if I try to edit this page, my computer experiences a WHOLE bunch of lag. Derilith 19:51, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
None of the discussions were over. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:02, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

I like Pointy's subpage idea, like what we do with RS:VFD. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:59, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Where is the link to the archive?????? 00:14, 26 July 2008 (UTC)
It's in the box that says "Archives" on the right side of the top of the page. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:14, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Caps[edit source]

I suggest we move this to RuneScape:Yew Grove. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 22:23, 13 July 2008 (UTC)

I agree, I was just noticing that yesterday when I tried to go directly to RuneScape:Yew Grove and it didn't exist...I don't know how much discussion this needs, really...there's not a significant impact. We would simply:
  1. Move this page to Yew Grove
  2. Redirect Yew grove -> Yew Grove (would be done automatically)
  3. Singlify double-redirects that resulted.
So I say give it a couple days for discussion, and if no objections, lets just do it. Endasil (Talk) @  00:31, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

It would be easier to create the page suggested, and redirect that page to the current page. That will save us a lot of work. Just my 2 cents...   az talk   11:24, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

You mean, just redirect RuneScape:Yew Grove to RuneScape:Yew grove? I already did that. But the whole point was to rename the page. There wouldn't be many double-redirects. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 17:19, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
What's the point of doing it though? By the way, I don't think "yew grove" is a proper noun, is it? Isn't it just a "grove of yews"? I don't know, whoever made it up probably does. :P Butterman62 (talk) 20:03, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Does it really matter? Yew Grove just looks better. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 21:41, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
....Who cares? Christine 21:45, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
To Christine: We do. To Butterman: Yew Grove is a proper noun in the way we are using it. It isn't about just any Yew grove, it's a specific name we've given a community forum. It's similar to the Rocky Mountains. Aren't they just rocky mountains? To Azliq: "a lot of work?" It's literally 30 seconds worth of work to make this change, and as C Teng said, that defeats the purpose. The question of "who cares" isn't a bad one. If nobody else cares, we'll change it, because we do. Endasil (Talk) @ 02:33, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
I can't believe you have to have a huge discussion on this. Just move the freaking page! Christine 02:37, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
Have to agree with christine here, just move it, it's not a big deal. (do we really need to create another Tavvy-like discussion.?) 02:52, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
I'll just move it. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 13:55, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
A huge discussion? What did I say in my very first response? "I don't know how much discussion this needs, really...there's not a significant impact." And then I said let's wait a +couple+ of days for discussion or objections. By saying something like "Who cares...", I thought you were objecting, so I continued discussing. There's no need for hostility. Endasil (Talk) @  13:57, 25 July 2008 (UTC) (Edit conflict x3). Thanks for doing it C Teng. Endasil (Talk) @  13:57, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
I forgot about the archives. As an anti-spam measure, I cannot move any more pages for a while. Could someone else do it? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 14:00, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
Never mind, I moved them. But I can't move RuneScape:Yew grove/Forum archives/Delete the Forums, it's protected. Could an administrator move it? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 14:31, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Shouldn't the link to Yew grove in the side bar be changed? (It shows as Yew grove instead of Yew Grove). Any other links to RS:YG should show as "Yew Grove" instead of "Yew grove" as well. Finding all the links and modifying that would mean "lot of work". =)   az talk   15:29, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

There are still links directing to "Yew grove" rather than to "Yew Grove"... see Special:Whatlinkshere/RuneScape:Yew_grove   az talk   08:25, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
It doesn't matter. They'll redirect. We'll just change the MediaWiki and Project pages. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 14:59, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

altered heading[edit source]

It seems that the Exchange: entry example is throwing off the heading level of all subsequent sections. Do we have a wiki expert that knows how to fix this? ~kytti khat 16:54, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit source]

I added a section about changing the logo, I don't know if I created it properly according to your guidlines, so if it's not how it should be, could you change it for me? -- Second-abyssal-whip.png  Bigd56   [talk] [highscores] 01:25, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Archive soon?[edit source]

Should some topics be archived soon?

The page is getting really laggy. But I'm not sure if any of the discussions are over yet. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 17:22, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
Some are just started But i think most are Over so i will archive the old ones and Keep the Current Running ones. Thanks Liam - Beta Tester (talk) 12:54, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, I really hate it when discussions that are obviously not over are archived. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 00:38, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
So I'm starting this discussion. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 13:51, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Hey, I think we need more info on lots of the Auras. For instance, Ancestor Spirits has almost nothing.
