Character List[edit source]

Untitled[edit source]

do we really need the charecter list since none of the charecters actually have an impact on the expierience and i believe the only ones worth mentioning are those in the trivia section--68.112.222.137 21:35, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

I was thinking that too, all those links are pointless. I'll delete most of them, except for ones that appeared in other cutscenes. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 00:13, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Don't delete yet or make a separate List of.... article. See RuneScape:Granularity. Articles may be made about these characters and this article or a List of... article would be a linking point. Chrislee33 00:55, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Then move all of the names to a separate article, but none of them deserve a separate article. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 01:44, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps we could rename the section "Charecters Of Note" or something like that and remove the Trivia section (since just about eveything in there is about certain charecters 68.112.222.137 02:10, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
There are many articles about minor details in RuneScape, per RuneScape:Granularity. If dwarven miner, old tooth, trainee guard, and old boot deserve articles, then I would say these characters do as well. To the argument that they do not enhance the gnomecopter experience in any way, I disagree; if there were no NPCs, it really wouldn't show what the areas were like. I vote give each character their own article or, at the very least, create a seperate page with information about each. They don't fall under the category of non-interactive scenery, so there's no real good argument against creating the articles. I'd be happy to create the articles for further expansion.Morian Smith 22:58, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
If no one objects, I'm going to re-add the links and begin creating the articles soon, so that they can be added to in the future. Morian Smith 21:39, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
What is the point? No one who comes to this wiki will be interested in ANY of these characters. Except maybe ones that appear in other cutscenes or quests, but most of this list does not deserve an article. White_party_hat.png C Teng 21:41, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
I guess I always assumed one of this Wiki's goals was to create a complete databse on every aspect of RuneScape, down to the tiniest detail. There are already dozens, maybe hundreds of articles on minor aspects of RuneScape that are often overlooked. Isn't that the whole point of the granularity policy? Morian Smith 22:17, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Still, I don't see how any of the character articles could be different. What's the point, if they're all the same? White_party_hat.png C Teng 23:00, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
There's plenty of information that could be added. What armor/gear they wear, what they say, what their names could imply, where they appear, what actions they perform, what their purpose is, etc.Morian Smith 03:32, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Seriously, what is the point? Who is going to read any of these articles? Like I said here, all of the Gnomecopter NPCs should be merged into a table. White_party_hat.png C Teng 17:40, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

All gone[edit source]

Gnomecopter Tours have been removed from the game due to Jagex's new philosophy regarding F2P (let it be a standalone game, not just a demo for members). Reference to that latter fact here. http://forum.runescape.com/forums.ws?15,16,644,58575428,goto,2. Iplayrs 15:59, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

An Item On The Trivia List[edit source]

I am always interested in looking at the trivia list to see what has happened over the years of Runescape, when I came upon the items on this list. The last one is about seeing a gnomecopter shadow by Beefy Bert's stand. I had a look at out of interest, but I'm afraid do say that this is (unlike the article says) is just part of the mill. I have got a photo that can show you.

Now I could be wrong and this may not be the shadow the article talks about so I have not yet removed the item, but please look into this.
